Insurance ?????

After having read many threads here, I understand that to insure or not to insure, is definetly a question. For us, we choose tom insure, the boat will be our home. Has anyone had any dealings with "Blue Water Yacht Insurance, Inc.", out of Jupiter, FL? They appear to be a broker and offer both domestic (US) and international coverage. It's hard enough getting covergae here in the states, we want to find reputable coverage for when we are in the Caribs and South Amer. We appreciate any constructive input. If anyone has any suggestions for other companies please feel free to pass along.

Run do not walk away from Bluewater. They used to be a preferred broker for the SSCA organization and they dumped them big time because of the complaints, refusals to honor claims and dropping people while they were out cruising and not notifying them. Not sure on the new SSCA board how many are still posting about them but you might go there and do a search. There are lots of info here and recommendations for good agents. Try one of those and you will not go through the hassles and aggravations later. I can personally recommend IMIS if you are looking for offshore coverage. BTW, we are currently in Houston also, on Clear Lake.

We use Pantaenius which has a good reputation in Europe. We are an American flagged boat, but we are not in the USA, so I don't know about their rates for the US.
I think Jackline gets some of the highest ratings in the US, but it was more expensive for Europe.
