  My S1S is also insured for $50K hull & $1M liability by US Specialty through
Cannon Aviation Insurance, and although it went up this year, it was still
nearly $500 less than your quote, and I have less TW and Pitts time than
you, plus an unfortunate racing accident that the insurance company paid out
on in 1996.  Bob Cannon has also provided great service and was very helpful
in getting my claim paid to my satisfaction.  You can find them at  I have no association with them other than
as a happy client.

Hey Troops,
Is hull insurance worth it? Having switched from Forrest to Avemco last year
it is
now the time to again review the cost of hull that seems to be reaching for
the moon.
I just got my Avemco bill for homebuilt S-1S for 50K hull and 1M liability.
Hull is
2089, liability is 283 (2416 total) compared with 1457 and 283 (1740 total)
year. My logs show about 800 hours taildragger and 350 in Pitts. Never had
accident in 16 years of flying. Avemco says they are losing on homebuilts
which is
the reason homebuilts have been hit the hardest. Unfortunately, Avemco does
discriminate within the category like State Farm auto does with low rates
for being
good. I am tired of paying for lost canopies and prop strikes due to runup
OK I've ranted but I guess it is time to self insure unless anybody's got a
