Tim R. Amica. You deal direct with the company(no agents) and they stand behind their policies. Never had a dispute with their service. Regularly ranked tops in service.

So when I get to Thailand, I need to make a call:

Me: Honey, i am in Thailand. Don't bother to fly over, it is not worth it . It's hot and humid. There are no flush toilet and i don't even want to tell you where was the fly landed before it lands on my face. You get the pic.

Wife: Oh you poor thing. Why don't you just fly back home.
Me: No i can't. If I fly back, the pirates will take the boat for sure.
Oh yeah, don't bother to call me either; their cell service sucks. Just email me if you want, I will try to find a place to connect. Don't keep your hope up. i gotta go
Me to the Thai chick: My dear, you missed this muscle here. Is happy ending provided.

Edited:
Sorry Boasun, we got sidetracked. Let's return to the regular program. And Congrats, if you are going to Thailand, you have a crew.

Singlehanded insurance very hard to find

Good luck finding insurance for extended singlehanded cruising. Jackline requires 2 and this is better than many policies that require at least three crew for long passages. At least the Jackline policy recognizes that many couples are out there cruising.

Also good luck getting the designated crew - you may find that redheads have major problems with the sun. Hope you like freckles.

Tempest Boasun.

1st of all congrats on your new boat!! I hope you get to put many miles under her keel.

I've always had Boat US and have been very pleased with them. They do insure Canadian vessels. Thru CNA

Best Insurance companies for the over 30 ft boats?

Went to my auto insurance company and their quote seemed to be out of this world and that they had no understanding USCG licenses or the larger vessels. I think they mainly insure the small boats about the size of bass boats and smaller.

So for the cruising sailor, which insurance company do you recommend?
