Re: Insurance - The Marine Shop (New Zealand)
Do you remember if the underwriter was Great Lakes Insurance SE? Did The Marine Shop help in any way to obtain a new policy?

We used The Marine Shop when we were in NZ and gave them our 2-year forward-looking plan including our destinations after departing NZ which included Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, India, etc. When we paid the premium everything was fine. About 6 months later when we were in Malaysia, the underwriter changed their mind about covering us for our previously disclosed route and we had to scramble to get insurance and a survey for insurance. To this day, I am not sure who dropped the ball, but I know that we were 100% straight forward in our disclosures. Possibly ours was an unusual case...I do not know. I believe that contractually they had the right to do this to us, but under the circumstances, we were disappointed because we never expected this.
