My time. Depreciation on vessel?
Third parties brought in to repair damage?
All under surveyors supervision..

I would not allow anything - until your insurance company gives the OK, in writing.
Ideally the boat yard will be insured for all this, so apart from a possible premium increase they probably should not care too much......your insurance co will go after the other ins co.
Given the likely values involved for a cat that size I would be very surprised if the insurance company does not take control of the situation (appoints own Assessor / Surveyor / damage report / relocate boat to somewhere it can be fixed under supervision of own Surveyor - all on there dime
)...........but I think it would be prudent to also get your own Surveyor (and reports, inc estimates / costings to fix) to both inspect the damage and to supervise the work (not to say that Ins co would pick cheapest fix options
). Odds are you'll have to front that up ($$) and a chance that won't be reclaimable......but also a chance could be the best money
ever spent if it goes all legal
IME the more one can do in advance to counter future problems, the less likely others will later "Try it on".
