Who to get insurance from?

Our boat insurance was canceled as Safeco no longer insures boats over some length. We used to pay $365 for a 35' sailboat.

Now the few quotes I have are in the $900 range.

I need help on this.

you are not alone- be thankful that is all you have been quoted- the world of boat insurance has changed drastically post-Katrina and the other Florida hurricanes. IMSI in Annapolis has a great reputation as a quality and fair source of insurance. (search all the previous threads on insurance- there's a lot of information already out there). Good luck.

If you're in North Carolina, and want an Agreed Value policy, I doubt that you'll find one for that price. It would help if you said where you keep your boat, and what kind of boat it is.

I would recommend you call a good marine insurance broker, rather than trying to find coverage on your own. I've used Christine Hartge, from Hartge Insurance, and she was able to get me an excellent agreed-value policy for a good deal less than the competing companies were.

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.
