Re: Help- New owner of 40ft old sailboat, can't get insurance

Owner of thread here, with final update.

I am not going to get insurance on my boat, for now at least.

After spending time working on it to make it pretty and seaworthy, I have found a private dock that I can use. I am forced to take the risk this year till I can accumulate the year(s) of ownership necessary to get insurance. To mitigate risk I had it pulled out of the water and placed on hard stands to get through hurricane season and to conduct repairs.

I found a friend with an old Chris Craft wooden boat that was forced into a similar situation, just because it was old and wooden- even though it was meticulously maintained.
