my guess is the PO's insurance already paid out the loss and it's listed as sunk. I've no idea what you should do really. Denise030
Probably true. Did you research insurance for her before you got her? If not why not?
Is the only reason you are getting insurance is because the yards are requiring it? Or do you feel you should have liability insurance no matter what? Isnt what the insurance companies are saying true? Over 30 years, you have limited experience?

Do you feel those are unfair reqirements?

Isnt the insurance also for an accident where you have a polution spill or present an environemental hazzard also?
