Scott, Sorry that you had to cancel on the S.P. ,a great disappointment,I am sure.This virus is changing everyone's plans around the world . I wish I could suggest an insurance co. ,however 10 minutes ago I got a cancellation notice from Pantaenius effective June 1. , so I am now in the same boat ,no insurance very soon. Diane and I enjoyed meeting you guys in Annapolis, and have been watching your vlog.
Good Luck ,
Pat & Diane,

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] USA only insurance
We are leaving Panama soon and due to Covid-19 are abandoning our plans for the South Pacific this year. In the next week, our intent is to sail directly to Hawaii and possibly spend the hurricane season in Alaska before heading back to the US West Coast.
Our current insurance does not cover US waters so I need to quickly find a policy that will cover us. We will mostly double hand and of course Hawaii-Alaska-US West Coast involves some offshore passages. We've got 16,000 nm on Tengah already, so reasonably experienced.
Any suggestions for US insurance? FYI Tengah is US documented and I'm American. I've reached out to a few brokers but would like some tips from those of you who spend all of you time in the US. Thanks.
