Insurance in the Bahamas?

I have a 42 ft. sail and my insurance company will cover me 100 miles off the East Coast USA. This will only take me a little past the western edge of the Bahamas. I have asked for a rider but they have declined.

Does anyone know of a company that will write a rider?

I don't want to change my insurance cause they've been very good to me so far. I want to go to the Abacos and Exumas again.

Re: Insurance in the Bahamas?

Change your insurance - it is nice that they are good to you but WHO DECIDES WHERE YOU ARE GOING TO SAIL AND HOW YOU ARE GOING TO LIVE YOUR LIFE - YOU OR YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY

sorry I yelled - but who runs your life

and yes Bill Hodgens is a great guy who took great care of us for a long time and modified our policy to meet our needs not his. He is an old cruiser who has been out here.
