Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

Thanks....I knew I loved the old girl, it's all I've got in the world. But having something like this reinforces how I feel. I have resisted "required" liability insurance, but have looked into full coverage for a 40yo wooden boat, doing full time international cruising. I found a company that insures more than just weekend sailors that never sail out of sight of land.
Covering all the bells and whistles full coverage, liability etc will cost me about $75/mo (keep in mind some people spend more on their gadgets and gizmos than I spent on my entire boat, gizmos included). The insurance company International Marine Insurance Services ( asked all the right questions, got back to me the next day then responded immediately as soon as I added information...I am not easily impressed by an insurance company.
