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 (imis.pro) 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.
