What's deal with the Liability Ins for Countries in Meds
Working with the Captain/owner for a trip to visit the countries in Mediterranean Sea in May, he got into problems of getting liability Insurance. For examples:
1. Italy requires $6.5MM liability, but companies will not issue just liability alone.
2. Some companies require hull out and a new survey before talking
3. No company willing to touch except a few in UK.
Does anyone have any insights how to navigate this Insurance maze?
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
