Again, many states don't have titles for boats. None of the six documented boats that I've owned have had titles, state of MA. The Fed documentation would reflect the ownership transfer to the insurance company, and then to the next owner... several regards...

Constructive Total Loss?

For 2012, I obtained liability coverage from a reputable insurer after full disclosure of the circumstances. After my repairs are complete, I will consider having a new survey done and purchasing more comprehensive coverage

Good luck getting her back together and returning to the water.

The only time I ever had a weather damage claim, it was just a strong front that passed through. I didn't take a hurricane. I would not want to be on the water for a minute without hull coverage. Hope its attainable at reasonable rates.
