    Might tell you something- owners don't like parting with quality.

    I rarely use my SLC Swaros now that Geovids are my main item but they're still worth keeping

    A lot of contents policies demand specified details for "portable items", eg rifles. That might be the snag..

    So are you going to check with your insurer, or just continue to assume you're not covered?
    Looks like my policy covers sports gear purchase second hand for market value, better than nothing.

    no but your boat insurance should cover ancillary equipment (which could be binoculars), mine does
