I managed IMIS before doing the cruising thing, so I was able to learn a lot about the rating systems and insurance products. It would have been hard to learn this job without having spent those years in the office working closely with Al Golden.
Technologically, I am able to work through the miracle of computers
and the support of the folks back at IMIS in Grasonville. Right now I'm using a Verizon Wireless Data Card. I used WIFI
with a high power antenna
last year when we were in the Bahamas
. I'm researching options for our trip to the Caribbean
, and was just about to look on other parts
of this forum for information on BGAN satellite service
. I'm completely paperless- all documents are in PDF format and I can fax from the computer.
I do enjoy my job- it's fun e-mailing other cruisers & finding out their plans. I've actually met a lot of our customers along the way!
