Need Help With Insurance Issue

We''re purchasing a ''83 Brewer 12.8. We want to put it on the hard for 12-18 months while I upgrade the electrical, plumbing, refinish some woodwork and add new electronics. I can''t find anyone who will write the coverage because I don''t have experience with refitting boats or an marine electrical license.

I understand why an insurer may be cautious with such a project, BUT who the heck do they think puts on your new electronics, installs replacement hoses, repairs wiring, etc etc etc. Are there exclusions in your policies that prevents you from doing your own maintenance. Everything I intend to do should have already been done as a matter of routine maintenance!

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks
