Re: Is insurance required to enter Bahamas?

Best of luck to you HL.... but... had you surveyed (or even had a knowledgeable acquaintance along) pre purchase you may have been dissuaded from buying a boat that was 'cheap' but clearly in need of some serious upgrading, the full extent of which you may have been more aware.. perhaps to the point of passing on this one, and with luck buying one for $6-8K that didn't break and need all that work.. leaving you with $$ left over for 'nice to haves' (like 3rd party insurance).

Anyhow I do wish you luck, and I hope you don't drag anchor into some lawyer with a $60K paint job along the way... just sayin'
