    Does your homeowner insurance cover a gun if you drop it over the side of your boat?

    I don't know about coverage but what where the GPS coordinates of that drop.;) I have some big magnets. Anyone feel like going gun fishing.:dv

    The offer still stands if you want to use the magnets.

    a very lucky hunter could of followed you around. first you "drop" and outboard and now a gun. hopefully you are asking this question for future reference.

    Unfortunately it's not for future reference. I am suprised it didn't end up being the gun AND the new engine, though! :eek:

    Ron, if the insurance company calls me for a statement I'll be forced to tell the whole story! :dv

    P.S. Kev: Kurt has the GPS coordinates and last I heard he was selling them for $100. :yes

    Birdup, do you think the magnets are strong enough to go thru a gun case?

    Humvee, go ahead and tell the story cause I know it's killing you not to.

    Kurt: Did that sound like Ron yelling "help"?

    Humvee: I don't know. Sounded like a cow to me.

    Well if we put all three of them together I'm sure it would. I'll test it when I get home. Things are a lot lighter in the water so I don't see why not.

    So I guess you'll be getting a floating gun case for Christmas.

    Will someone please tell the story.

    if that doesnt work don a wet suit and go swimming:dv if not mark it and head back when it warms up a bit i wonder how long the gun would hold up with being in cold water ? never been after a gun but lost my push pole last year wentback in the summer went for a swim and got it back :tu

    Probably not. If you had left it on the back bumper and driven off and lost it.......THEN gone back and looked,it would have been covered under theft provisions(because someone picked it up).

    Losing it under water is kind of a stretch for insurance.
