    Creekwood, thanks for the invitation but don't say "tiny" when talking about a 330. I had two of 'em and loved both. The first one got hit one night while we were drifting on the Columbia River by a BUI boater.

    It totaled that boat but I liked it so much I replaced it with a twin boat within a month or so. DSC00074_zps3bf9d362.jpg DSC00086_zps8f1df77c.jpg P7170046_zps71832bdc.jpg P7170050_zps5d608f97.jpg

    I guess it didn’t buff out.

    Funny story about that. The other guy's insurance was Allstate so they sent out a guy to an estimate of repair costs. It was obvious the guy had never been around a boat so I asked him what his experience with fiberglass repairs was and he said he'd done a Corvette once.

    After spending a whole 30 minutes evaluating the boat his estimate to repair all the damage was $15K. He wrote it up and asked me to sign it.

    I refused and immediately called the Allstate gal in Portland I was working with. I told her what an idiot her estimator was and insisted she get a qualified marine surveyor to do an estimate. She didn't even know how to contact one so I told her to contact SAMS and NAMS.

    She did find one and when she called me back to schedule the survey she commented about how expensive he was. I just told her that you get what you pay for.

    They surveyor asked me if I thought the boat should ever be on the water again and I said "NO". His survey amount was $75k, enough to total the boat.

    Pirate Lady, Allstate pissed me off so badly by the way they treated me that I decided to really go after them. Before it was all done they ended up paying me for...
    --$3,000 per week for 4 weeks for a rental boat of similar size and quality because I used my boat to entertain clients. That price included the cost of bringing the rental boat around the coast from Seattle to my area.
    --~$1,000 for a trip I had taken to Michigan to see if I could find another 330DA.
    $~750 to reimburse me for registration and licensing fees I had just paid on the boat that got wrecked.

    There were lots of other charges that they reimbursed me for that added a few hundred other dollars.

    Oh, and they paid full rip retail for the boat that got totaled. I ended up with enough that when I found a replacement boat in Portland, OR I was able to write a check for it.

    Thanks Allstate!
