Mark, I think your friends assessment is right on. I am fielding quotes ,two just today. They are full of restrictions , exclusions and wording that left me wondering if ever needed, would I have coverage at all. Not to mention the premiums more than twice what I was paying with Pantaenius, with deductibles 5 times as much. This is what prompted me to think ,it may be time to think about self insuring .

Just as an FYI - An agent I am friendly with who understands and brokers policies for the marine insurance business sent me this:
I can tell you that due to the many companies pulling out of the recreational marine insurance market, including the all important reinsurers, that availability will soon be the primary concern as opposed to affordability, especially for two people cruising long distances.
Hopefully the pendulum will swing back toward the sailors in the future.
He thinks things will get worse before they get better.
