Urgent request for advice:
I am looking for insurance
for my catamaran
and want to have tropical storm coverage during hurricane
season in the Caribbean
. I am leaving November 1 for the Bahamas
and sailing onward to the Windward and Leeward island chain, leaving the boat somewhere down there by end of May, 2011 before the next hurricane
season. My thoughts at present will be to store the boat in Grenada
I have a quote from Jackline that exludes storm coverage so that may allow me full coverage if I store the boat in Trinidad providing the yard is not north of 10degrees 50 N latitude.
is in the Jackline hurricane zone and I am told by my insurance
agent that Jackline has no "quota" left for storm coverage in Grenada.
I understand that Jackline is the preferred cruisers insurance.
My problem is I have no certainty that I will get to Trinidad as my final destination
7 months from now and, if not, I will want to have full storm coverage if I leave my cat within the hurricane zone. Does anyone know where Jackline still has "quota space" in the Caribbean
island chain for storm coverage and can you recommend a marina/yard that could haul my 23' beam sailing cat.
Alternately, any other recommendations for an insurance company that writes storm coverage, providing the client submits an appropriate hurricane plan.
This is urgent. My existing insurance policy expires in two weeks and I want to secure good insurance for my extended trip and subsequent storage
next hurricane season.
Thank you sincerely in advance!
