Jack Martin Insurance HAH! Any other ideas?

"Sorry, we don''t have a market for your boat." What the f**k does that mean? I know, I know what it means. Now I have a boat stuck in Maine, where I can pay insurance and payments just to keep it in a yard while I live down here in the Caribbean. Jack Martin was REAL helpful. The lady basically blew me off.

Besides, my advise was for the guy buying a Hunter 25 with two partners. What is it that you are trying to insure?

First, I was put on hold for several minutes. Then she came back on the phone and asked the make, year, etc. "1972 Bristol Yawl, Good Cond. (per survey), new standing rigging, running rigging, chainplates, mainsail, roller furling, good diesel, 1996 (legitimate) survey market value at $34,000.00 BEFORE any of the above, all survey issues addressed, etc., etc." The boat fits in well with the Hinckleys in SW Harbor. Her next comment was "we can''t sell that boat." I asked for leads and she couldn''t think of anyone. I''ll figure it out between now and April. Boat U.S. said NO CARIBBEAN. I''m going to call Don Street in London and have a chat with him. KW

VI and Jeff

Sorry to jump in the middle. VI, I thought you wrote a long time ago that you wanted to sell the Bristol?? Why not truck it to Newp or Annap, put it on the hard and sell it? I have seen several classic Bristol 35''s go FAST here and the RI market is always good to them.

Sorry to hear about your insurance troubles. USAA has turned out to be one of our better benefits.

Good luck
ps - Jeff, thanks for the list. Will let you know how things turn out.

I decided to bring the boat down here to the Caribbean, since I''m basically "buying it from myself" for the cost of getting it here. It''s in SW Harbor, Maine, and came close to selling last year, but my "broker" didn''t bother to bank the deposit check and returned it, without my authorization, when the buyer came back after 9/11 and decided to back out. I should''ve known better. I''d rather have it down here anyway. It''s in great shape and, with a little more work, I can make it into something that''ll compare nicely to a boat theoretically between a Hinckley Pilot and Hinckley Bermuda 40. KW
