And yes, the cost is outrageous. My motorcycle insurance is like $120. I only have liability so its based on the amount of damage that my bike can do if I get in an accident which isnt much. If you get into a bike accident, you are going to do most of the damage to yourself and the bike. A pwc is really no different.. and the liklihood of having a collision is remote (again, IMO - certainly different in high traffic areas).. so the insurance should be cheap. I got a quote once from progressive, just out of curiousity, and it was ridiculous.
I know this didnt answer your original question.. just giving my .02 on the subject. FWIW

right now im looking at 290 for the year. If i didnt need to have it, i wouldnt. I tend to avoid high traffic areas, but on the off chance i do get run into, i dont want to deal with the legal BS or being sued by some punk kids parents.

Im in CT so not sure the difference in rates but when i first bought mine i had Gieco and it was $100 a year. But my ski was insured for only $4K.

BTW, here in CT I pay a little under $400 for the year with high limits. For the price it is, it is silly not too have it and have good coverage. I believe I am covered for $14,000 on the ski and trailer. I'd rather pay it and never need it then not have it and need it that one time.
Well worth it for the piece of mind alone.

Mine are all bundled together through Liberty Mutual along with house, cars, liability, etc... they wouldn't give me a liability umbrella unless I also added all my toys, so the ski's are on it...not sure what they add to the total.
Worth it though if my brother in law runs into somone riding one of my ski's. He already ran into my wife once - not sure if that was an accident though?

I'm not so sure that auto insurance covers your ski when it's in tow....the thought ALWAYS crosses my mind when I'm stuck in traffic on my way to SpeedFreaks in Brooklyn and I see someone centimeters from my bumper!
