|ianhlnd||Thanks Cam, I'm calling them today. Looks like I may be able to save a bundle. I saw the jackline policy but I wasn't clear on what that was. I'll find out today. Thanks again, you always have good advice.|

....and saw that their Mexican rider is a LOT less expensive than what I've been paying. I've asked for a quote.
Ian...I have their Jackline policy from Markel...which is not cheap but really saved my butt in Grenada...and I was treated way better than a lot of boats around me were. This I attribute mainly to Markel and the details of THAT policy. But...the nice thing about IMIS is they deal with only good insurers and can pick and choose among them to find the best fit for your particular needs. Bob Bell is the guy I work with there. I initially picked them cause so many on the SSCA used them and recommended them.
Good luck with the coverage

You should see it when I've got 4 of them aboard, no peace at all. I want to turn on the engine and just motor with autopilot, kick back and have a drink in the sun, but they're honking the sails and getting 4 kts in 10 kts wind. They work hard and don't let up. At least I have some solice that I don't have to work hard except to nurse scratches, apply suntan lotion and repair and broken nails.

For a boat in the 26-30' range, your car/home insurer may be the most competitive. Most won't cover them larger than that, and then your rateing will depend on things like the area you are in, the value of the boat, the age of the boat, the coverage you want (of course
For a bigger boat and solid coverage, yes, IMIS gets consistently high praise. Not cheap--but pros who deal straight.
Policies that look alike at first glance can also be very different, if you get two very different quotes don't be afraid to ask each one to compare line by line with the other, and what other coverage they recommend. (Like fuel spill and salvage liability.)

Practical Sailor had two articles on this topic last year. Given the hurricane-prompted rate increases in the Florida area of the last few years, I'm not convinced I'd bother....
...keeping the boat in Florida!
