Hull ID info HELP from Casey the Insurance Guy

Post by CaseyInsuranceGroup » Fri Jul 08, 2016 6:11 pm

Thank you for recent referrals from this site for pleasure and charter. Since I am new to insuring Airboats, (and frankly most underwriters/companies) can someone please advise me why some HULL ID #'s start with FL"Z" as this usually signifies a Homemade boat or SALVAGED. I understand that the boat is built and assembled in pieces, and that's ok, as long as the finished product is "professionally" put together.

I appreciate the advise. Overtime I will do my best to get many companies into the "Market" but its things like this that we need to figure out. I don't mean this as a solicitation or business post if that's against the rules. I would accept a ride as I have circumnavigated the world on a boat but never been on an Airboat!

As I understood it when I bought my new hull,coast gaurd regulations state,unless the company builds the complete boat the manufacturer can only give an MSO,manufacturers statement of origin,and the tag office will only title it as home made.
That's how It was explained to me.
Compromise is for those that cant get it done!!

Casey, You insure my boat. Its a Diamondback. But use it as an example. Say I bought the hull from Diamondback. Took it to say Poor Boys and he built the rigging. When its all said and done. Florida would title it homemade. Cause the original hull maker didn't complete the boat. Also some of these guys have been welding and building their own rigging for years. So they may order a hull and finish the build them selves. Now its also titled a homemade. Some these guys build better then said manufactures. Not putting anybody down. This is a small niche market. Glad to see you here. I have referred several to you.

If you have more questions you can call me next week if you need more info. Bob Herndon 941-705-6344

Being that you are based in Broward, are you writing for boats stored in Broward?

Do you insure airboats that are titled as home made?

If so, I will be in contact since I will have my new home made boat this week end if the test and tune goes well. John Fenner built my boat and he is as good as they come. I've never insured a boat but this one I will.
