The Insurance On Boat.

Kingston, Oct. 12th - To the Editor:

In answer to your letter of "Islander" in issue of 9th inst., permit me to state that under the conditions named the amount paid would be $12,500, as follows:

The value of the boat being $24,000 the owners' contract to carry seventy-five per cent, which is $18,000; the insurance people only carry $15,000, leaving them co-insurers to the amount of $3,000.

Now if a $15,000 loss occurs the insurance company is liable for fifteen eighteenths of $15,000, or $12,500, a clear loss to the owners of $2,500 by having the seventy-five percent clause.

If loss was only $1,000, the loss to owners would be one-sixth or $166.23 and so for each $1,000.
