The agent isn't as important as the insurance company that writes the policy.

It might be wise to Google that company on a few sailing web sites. Then, once you've finished reading the posts, Google and contact IMIS Insurance and/or BoatUS for quotes. When you need insurance you really need a company you can rely on.

FWIW...

I guess what he means is that Blue Water Insurance in Florida is an agent for a real insurance company - one who actually does the underwriting. BoatUS, Travelers, Zurich, Safeco, Farmers, etc. They all have their own reputations as to how they handle claims.

I have my insurance through Safeco. No claims experience, and hopefully will never have to file a claim.
