From the link: "USA companies won’t provide third-party liability only, they want to delve out full coverage policies (pricey policies) and they want an out of water survey within this year to identify exactly what they are insuring."
This is not related to your questions, but they could get insurance. I don't blame the insurance companies, all they are asking for is a survey. I wouldn't expect anyone to issue a policy without knowing what they are securing. Just my 2 cents.
