    Beware of BoatUS Insurance

    As a long time Boat US/Geico customer I am concerned by your report. But to clarify some details, I'd like to know if you had an "Agreed Value" clause in your policy. I have been told that, should my boat be a total loss, the "Agreed" amount would be paid. If that was the situation that you...

    H 30 cockpit portlights.

    Cut off instrument mounts on steering pedestal?

    Leaking keel on a Hunter 31

    My 1979 H30C came with a lead keel. I think all the early Hunters did.
