you should be fine with insurance since it is brand new. I just went thru the same, except my motor was 11 years old. Boat insurance is handled differently than auto, boat insurance they only require a quote to repair/replace damage. Auto requires an adjuster to review damage. My claim was completely handled via email. Once they review quote they use a depreciation scale, that deducts 10% of repair each year after 6 years. I would bet you only have to pay deductible on a new lower

Still waiting on approval from the insurance to cut the check but you are correct there is no adjuster needed. The dealer sent in the quote and now we are in the waiting game. There will be no deductible for me. I will be trying to keep the older lower unit as well. I'm sure there's a few bucks I may be able to get out of it.

Called Suzuki as well and they said they will back it up.
Get that in writing.
