Re: insurance/survey

Captain Jack, I would suggest that you go back and re- read the posts before you continue your rant about how everyone is against you. We all support the dream and want everyone to be able to experience the joy sailing brings. However, in one of your posts you stated that you could not afford 300 dollars right now. That raises a red flag for the viability of your plan. A boat costs lots of money. First you buy what you think you need, then triple that when you dig into the repairs.
I bought a boat for 13 dollars, one year later my total expenditure was 7000 without a survey.My insurance was liability only for $100/ year. The other costs were required repairs and fees to the marina.
If you want to sail cheaply, buy a trailer sailor, no marina fees necessary, and have fun. And please insure it in case you run into me.
