I am in search of some information about experiences with BOAT/US insurance for
liveaboards or other experiences with them in general. Somewhere in my mind is
a recollection about a problem with claims and failed parts. Something to the
affect if a part fails and your boat sinks you're not covered.

My reason for asking is with the change in Ocean Underwriters business
practices I am looking for a strong company to carry my insurance on a 40 foot
sailboat on the Texas Gulf coast.

Any information, suggestions, feedback appreciated.

I've insured my Doughdish with them for 6 or 7 years. No problems. In
December 1989, the boat was thrashed pretty good when a storm came
through Sausalito and the finger it was tied to broke in half
(Schoonmaker Point Marina). The surveyor that BOAT/US referred me to
examined the boat, listened to my story, and then helped me write my
description of what happened and why. Boat/US paid the >$4000 repair
bill with no hassle. That year's insurance premium was the best $120 I
ever spent, and the premium hasn't risen significantly since then.

 I have insured my Cape Dory 30 with Boat/US for 4 years now, and am very
satisfied with them. However, I have not had a claim in this time, so have not
tested their response to a loss situation. In reading my policy, I don't see anylanguage that would support the assertion that "if a part fails and your boat
sinks you're not covered".

We have insured our Nonsuch30 with BOAT/US for about 6 years and been very
satisfied.  The third year we were insured the boat was struck by lightening
while at the dock.  We sustained over $7000 worth of damage to the electronics
and they settled the claim very quickly and in a professional manner.  We
did not get a discount the following year - but have from then on because of
our good record with them.

That is unbelievable -- penalizing someone for an "act of God" claim!
I can understand if there was some personal fault involved, but this
is getting ridiculous!
