Marine insurance for older, larger sailboat

Hello Sailors,

I could need a little advice on an insurance question. I'm in the process of acquiring a 1977 Gulfstar 50 and keep her near Charleston, SC.

The PO has a survey that is 2.5 years old and is not being accepted by the only insurance company that gave me a quote. I plan on an extensive refit, so the boat will be in a marina that requires at least liability insurance.

I've been rejected by several other companies due to one or several factors:
* Boot is too large/old
* Boot is located in SC
* Will do liability on boats 30ft or smaller only
* No experience on boat this size (I own a 34 foot boat currently)

Can anyone recommend a company I should try for liability only? I'd really like to avoid a survey on a boat that I'd like surveyed after the refit.
