    Do you currently participate in any hazardous sports?

    I'm going through a life insurance application right now and was asked:

    Do you participate in any hazardous sports such as hang gliding, parachuting, automobile racing, mountain climbing or boat racing?

    Me: Nope

    Glad mountain biking is still considered safe

    I went through the same thing and when I told them that I climbed and scuba dove, I had to got through a special interview. It was very annoying. The person had no idea about anything and the questions where not really straight forward, but if you misinterperate what they are saying you could void your insurance.

    Overall it was a pain, but in the end it didn't effect my premium.

    I've been married twice, and that's the extent of my "hazardous" sports.

    Boat racing dangerous?

    Do they mean off shore power boats or just anything that floats?

    I've raced a couple of freinds on those pedal boat/bike things, can I consider that an extreme sport?
