Insurance Question

We've got our boat and have it setting where we're going to live. We close on our house and move to Florida on March 4th! As part of our insurance I have to have a hurricane plan, what are everybody's thoughts and what do you plan on doing in case of a hurricane? Thank you

Re: Insurance Question

Before spending too much time, call the insurance company and see what they will accept as an adequate plan. If their idea of adequate is solely to have it hauled and then blocked and secured in a yard, well, that is your choice. This is most likely the preferred course of action, but in addition, being in FL, the company likely will want some plan that covers the boat automatically if you are not around when the storm comes. You can make arrangements with nearby marinas to have your boat hauled in the event you are not around. Most and certainly the better insurance companies will split the cost with you for this, usually 50-50. Has to be a NOAA "named" storm and watch or warning issued for your area.
