Just curious, any idea whether his insurance company has already paid out? On a boat that is very likely still afloat and intact, and probably making her way slowly towards the Caribbean?

If so, that's damn good service, I have many neighbors whose homes were destroyed in Sandy, who are still waiting for settlements from their insurers...

I don't know if the insurance has paid for the latest mess, but they did pay for the first two... they are going after the first company that made the rudder that fell off near the Cape Verdes
