Re: Is insurance required to enter Bahamas?

Quite frankly, I forget the exact amount but I know it is at least $600 for my 1981 28' S2 for FULL coverage. However, I have now let it lapse as she is out of the water and is now Bahamas registered. So, I wi8ll see what I can get when I put her back in.
My Insurance (BOATUS) stipulated I have her out of water during hurricane season although I could put her back in with reduced coverage. This was actually a good thing in Marsh HArbor because it meant my boat was first out of the water in June a nd they always had time to set her up properly. During hurricanes the past two years, the yard was filled with boats teh day before the storm that could not be properly secured and they suffered, mine did not suffer.
