    Hi Talbot, thanks for your message. With regards to single handers on blue water, unfortunately we are unable to assist. However, for couples, providing they have suitable experience & their boat is adequately equipped then we should be able to accommodate, assuming all other criteria fits; e.g. age & construction of vessel etc. Why not give us a shot and see?

    Hi Liz, a few questions.

    I've filled out the quotation form, but there are some questions where my boat doesn't really fit the form.

    I didn't buy it, I built it. It's not a production boat. So the purchase price is kind of hard to define... I did have a surveyor value the boat though.

    Can you still insure? We do intend to go bluewater cruising this year - Vanuatu, possibly New Caledonia, or the Solomon islands and Louisiades. We'll have at least 3 experienced sailors on board for all ocean passages.

    Thanks for your help.

    Cheers, Alan.

    G'day Alan. Thanks for the subject & posting. :y) Do keep us completely informed - please. :t) I'm looking a a tri that was re-designed & built by an ocean racing Frenchman in 1998 or so. He was a good tradesperson & it's rather medium to high tech - light & quuick enough to cruise under sail in 6 to 10 kts. Like you - I must be able to sail the darn thing - it's just in my blood. I'm sure you understand so I'm really interested in everything you find out. Thanks again cobber. Ciao, james

    Thanks, but I'm far from unique. Heaps of Aussies build their own cats. A good site if you were interested in building is here:

So does anyone have suggestions for a broker or insurance company who likes Cuba a bit more?

    Nothing works on an old boat, except the skipper.

    I didn't know people could get banned on this forum? apparently so to spare is from spammers.

    Yep, pretty much the only way to get the chop. If we didn't then the threads would be full, literally of penis enlargement ads, cheap apple telephones and nigerian opportunities.

    I can think of some forums that have obviously made use of at least one of these advertised facilities due to the amount of willie waving going on.

    Yes we have to ban spammers although we encourage anyone who wants to promote their products or services related to multihulls/boats.
    For the record the spammer bans run into the thousands and their really is no choice in the matter.

    Eric - I will answer your solar panel question if you ask it in the Sulliere on a Roll thread

Even if the policy language does not specificially forbid single handing, you will probably find some language in the policy about "seaworthiness". In a court of (admiralty) law, failing to have the vessel staffed with adequate number of crew for the intended passgae would make it unseaworthy.

    We had a storm and water went under the crawlspace and submerged my heater 3/4 a way under water. Now it is not working. Is that covered by homeowners insurance? .
