I emailed Hagerty the other day after all the negative emails were going
around about them. Here's their response. If anyone has any questions
or concerns about coverage, please contect them at the phone number

Dear Mr. Maruska



Thank you for your inquiry.



In response, it is not our intention to non-renew amphicars, nor are we
looking at these more closely. Each risk is individually underwritten
and we welcome owners of amphicars to apply for coverage with us. It is
unfortunate that you were presented with incorrect information.



Filing a claim or acquiring a moving violation does not mandate
non-renewal of a policy. There are several underwriting factors taken
into consideration that would initiate any adverse action be taken.



Please contact our office with any further questions.



Thank you, and enjoy your cars!

Thanks Tom for your efforts! Something about that whole deal seemed
odd, but we are speaking about an insurance company which I am always
suspect of anyway. I hope that it was just a misunderstanding between
Randy/Billy and Haggerty. I see how they would drop Billy after a big
payout like that, standard practices in the industry. They want your
money, but when you get their money, it really bothers them. Afterall
it was an accident, not an "on purpose". ;)

BTW, Tom do you have any relatives here in Colorado? I work with a
guy named Ken Maruska here at Quantum and at my former haunt of 10+
years at Exabyte in Boulder.

I too, emailed Hagerty and was re-assured that there should be no
problem renewing as long as one's record was reasonable. Here's
their response:

<tt>Ed, I am new to the Amphi world and do not have my car
running yet. Is this insurance co. a good one to go
with, or do most of the club members go with their
land based auto insurance?

<tt>Ihave become accustomedto looking for parts in a typical auto store, and, onbeing asked what kind of car I'm working on, getting a glazed-over look when I tell them it's an Amphicar.</tt>
<tt></tt>
<tt>But I sure don't want that same response when I talk to my insurance company. Most agents, and more importantly, underwriters, can't seem to grasp the concept of an amphibious vehicle. They will sell you an auto policy, or they will sell you a boat policy (more typically called "hull insurance"). But the vehicle must be one or the other; your auto comprehensive and liability end at the water's edge. (OTOH, I wonder about a towed boat; would it be covered on your auto policy, or on the boat's hull insurance?)</tt>
<tt></tt>
<tt>Even Hagerty maintains this separation concept; they sell you TWO policies, one for the normal comprehensive and liability, and a hull policy for non-land coverage. But at least, when you call Hagerty, they don't say "A WHAT?!? You want to do WHAT?"</tt>
