You sail without Sea Tow?

We once had a large cherry tree that was dieing and going to fall on the house and called our homeowners agent to ask about getting it taken down. They told us to call back after the tree went through the house. About a year later the tree fell, hit the house and rolled only taking off a few shingles and the gutter, want even enough damage to call the agent back on.... That is the bet your insurance agency is going to hedge against your grounded boat.
