I am amazed all you guys can get insurance for anything bigger than a trailer boat without having demonstrated history of having piloted something close to the size of your new boat. Every step of my progression beyond 25 feet (including my first twin-screw, in the water, 28 foot boat, and every step from there up to my most recent 55 to 64), I sought quotes from a bunch of insurers and in each case they wanted a boating resume and followed up with detailed questions about my ability to handle that next step up. Some insurers declined (even though I have never had a claim, have good credit, boater safety classes, etc) on the basis that my prior experience with that size boat was too limited.
