I haven't had any luck finding an insurance carrier for the boat because I am told my address is Florida and the boat will be kept in NY for winter storage. In the meantime I will be cruising other states as well as Canada. I don't recall having this problem four years ago when I insured a 30' sail boat. Any comments?
They both have good east coast coverage. For other areas it's best to look at both maps as there are areas one or the other has less coverage. One thing as a reminder, don't be reluctant to use them in advance. There is no better source of current, local knowledge than tow captains.
Now to the insurance question, I don't know what size boat you're buying or have bought but just talk to more insurers. There are some excellent brokers and I've found Pantaenius to be very flexible. Where are you keeping the boat in Florida? What size boat? Registering it in FL or documenting it or what?
We're insured in South Florida, no limits on where or when. Not cheap but coverage is available out there.
