    New boat considerations, need opinions on a few topics.-gctid811747

    Okay it's not a Bayliner sorry, but it is cool. 34' steel trawler. Full keel, 70hp diesel inboard. Looks like a tug somewhat.

    What is a decent option for insurance? I've never insured a boat before but this boat might end up living on a mooring buoy part of the year so it seemed a good idea. Costs seem to range between 10$ and 75$ per month.

    I tried to get a bundle policy with progressive but apparently they won't offer a policy for the hull material of steel. Interesting.

    Also, this big girl has a nice trailer with surge brakes. I'm considering laying her up at home each winter but my street is gravel and an incline. I'm concerned that the trailer will drag my truck backwards down the hill. I'd like to have a way to manually activate the trailer brakes just in case I need to stop short. Is this possible? Or should I convert to electric?
