Insurance in Caribbean during Hurricane Season?

I have decided to store our Stevens 47 on the hard on Tortola in the BVI for the hurricane season. She will be on the hard from July 1st - November 1st. My current insurance (obtained through IMIS) is charging an additional $680 to allow this AND is doubling my deductible for named windstorm damage to over $16K. The total policy for an insured value of $165K is now well over $5K per year and this is with a high deductible!

IS this just reality... or does anyone have suggestions for doing better?
