What do you all have for hull coverage? With the increase in kit cost, parts and what labor is if something should need to be fixed.

I have a 7A, with a 390 + Hartzell composite prop, decent panel etc. I asked for a $180K hull coverage quote thinking it'd be close should you ever need to replace the airplane.

Just wanted a sanity check from fellow builders. Quote is Mid $2K range (Gallagher) which I don't think is unreasonable at all given I am not instrument rated yet and not a ton of time, but before I write the check I want to make sure I asked around that I am not under or over on my ask.

That's just hull? Not moving?
I have a $125K hull for about $500

I cannot be, nor will I be, held responsible if you try to do the same things I do and it does not work and/or causes you loss, injury, or even death in the process.
