Have you ever been on a boat? The wind whips through your hair, the sun shines on your neck, and it seems like all of your woes get left on the dock. That’s why boating is such a dang expensive hobby– it’s phenomenally pleasant! So if you’re a boat enthusiast, it’s probable that your boat is not only your fiberglass first-born baby, but also a deep, endless money-pit… which is why boaters always have the best insurance.
Insurance may be a scammy business, but it does sometimes pay off. When you’re in an accident, specifically a boating accident, the price tag for repairs can skyrocket pretty quickly, so trying to wriggle away into the shadows isn’t always an option for the guys responsible.

But it didn’t quite work out for this sneaky snake. Scroll for the full story of how a relentless boating couple fought tooth and nail to get the cash funds to fix their beloved boat after an accident, scoring 14x the amount needed because of the perpetrator’s flippant oversight.
