Question I am from Spain and I want to know...

Hello, I´ve just bought a 40 ft Hunter in Florida.
I am from Spain and I need some information .

I need to sail my vessel from Key Biscayne to Fort Pierce, in orde to put her on a dry storage to do some repairs.

The thing is that my title to drive sailboats is from Spain and the sailboat is american. What can I do?

And, do I need an insurance to navigate her. There is no company which wants to insurance her. What can I do?

Thanks a lot



Paola Reale (sorry about my english)

IIRC, you aren't required to have a license in the state of Florida to sail a boat yet. Get some crew, and sail it there yourself.

While you don't need the insurance to sail her, you will probably require insurance, most boatyards require a minimum of $300,000 in liability insurance, especially if you are going to be doing any work on her yourself. Also, any crew you hire will probably want to know that you have insurance, in case they are injured while working for you.

That said, getting insurance in Florida is pretty tough, thanks to the hurricanes of last year. You should probably give a good insurance broker, like Hartge Insurance, out of Annapolis, a call and see what they can find for you. It beats trying to call a dozen companies yourself. Talk to Christine Hartge...she should be able to at least point you in the right direction.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You may also want to check with BoatUS for insurance. http://www.boatus.com/insurance/ They just mailed me trying to get my business, so they seem to be eager for more clients. My account is with National Marine Underwriters: http://www.nmu.com/ which specializes in yacht insurance. Bien viage!
