You can believe that the damage award will exceed insurance limits. This guy will be financially ruined. I know of a SeaRay dealer that was doing well, but had to sell the business to settle an over insurance limit award.

I know someone cruising a large Krogen today because a business partner had to sell cheaply to settle the same. If there are any assets, they will be attached.
