Take the money you are prepared to spend on insurance and spend it on making your boat as totally prepared as possible. I can't imagine an insurance company writing a policy on a venture like this - they would have no realistic way to judge the risks. If a policy was offered it would be frightfully expensive.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
