I should add the insurance surveyor was most helpful in providing guidance and was a great resource. He was present during the teardown of the engine and documented the mode of failure. Ended up hiring Bob Stine who used to build Wilburs to oversee what turned into a major project. We endeavored to keep the aesthetics intact and the structure sound as we updated things.

Who do you have for insurance. With mine if I suck up a Wal-Mart bag and it over heats and destroys the engine, I am covered. If the engine fails because of a broke oil line, the engine is on me......

My insurance is with ACE. I have always used Morgan Wells of the Jack Martin Insurance Agency in Annapolis as a broker except for one unfortunate experience. Another broker put me with TL Dallas who took what I thought was far too long to pay a total loss claim on a boat lost at sea on its delivery from France to Annapolis. That was a Lagoon sailing catamaran.
As far as why the claim was covered. The boat had been serviced and commissioned by a reputable yard. I had all of the receipts for service and the information from a recent engine survey. They had done a sea trial a couple of days before I picked the boat up. Maybe that had something to do with it. Obviously I was very pleased the insurance company covered a significant portion of the loss.It made sense to do all of the extra stuff to freshen the boat up and reduce the chances of anymore unpleasant surprises.
