Stefano,

What I offered was an English version of the Groupama policy.

I will email it to you if you respond with your email address with an "at" instead of an @. Unfortunately Yahoo, does not transmit your entire email address....OR....email a request to me at crew"at"svbebe.com.

What I am offering is not a price quote, but a copy of the policy language. Regarding the price quote, you need to contact: Françoise GODINEAU" Email: fgodineau"at"assurances-delassee.com

Gary,

We use Groupama who specialize in Amels. Groupma is a French company with offices in France and in St. Barts. It is a very good policy with great hurricane coverage and very reasonable rates. Email "Françoise GODINEAU" <fgodineau"at"assurances-delassee.com>, she is very, very good. Tell her that you want a policy like "BeBe" has.

You may have 1 or 2 problems qualifying with them:
1.) They do not insure US Flagged boats...But, they will insure a US Documented boat owned by a US citizen with a US address if the US Documentation has a hailing port of the USVI. BeBe's hailing port is St. Thomas, VI. For about $100, you can change your US Documentation to St. Thomas as a hailing port.

2.)The insurance will not cover your boat when it is in US Waters...USVI is not US waters to them.

I have a copy of the policy in English if you think you can qualify.

Let me know what else you need from me.

I have had my Amel SM insured with Lemma Insurance (Lemma Europe Insurance Company) through Bill Coats at Offshore Risk Management of Florida. On 17 Oct 2012 I received an eMail from Offshore Risk Management indicating that Lemma Europe is in liquidation and that, while my policy is in force, there is a strong possibility that there be insufficient funds to pay future claims.

OH GREAT!!!

I have roughly 1/4th of my annual $US 6,500 premium tied up in this now bankrupt company.

I would welcome any thoughts from the readership on different brokers or insurance companies. I feel like I need to secure alternative insurance soon, just in case. I think I will go with a USA company since things look so bleak for Europe right now (not that they are all that great for the USA).

My boat is on the hard in a cradle in Jolly Harbor Antigua. We have kept the boat in the hurricane box for each of the last 6 years. The one time we brought the boat out of the box was to Florida where we had 3 hurricanes come close, one within 60 miles of our boat, while there. We finally went back to the Caribbean where we have felt safer from hurricanes.

Thanks for your input.

Re: SM waterline

Graham,

You will find many previous posts regarding this. Do a search for "Boot Stripe". We also plan to raise our water line at the next haul out. The bottom paint at the stern sits right at the water line and we have a few blisters just above the bottom paint. The orange stripe is painted on and no-doubt can be removed or painted over:

SM C/U drive (engine to prop connection) oil leak

Graham Boyd
 

A few days ago we were unfortunate enough to hit a very large submerged heavy duty commercial tarpaulin, whilst motoring at 7.3 kts. The engine stopped dead and we made it to port by "other means".

The obstruction was cleared, but since then I have noticed a small oil leak has developed around the area where the plastic oil refill pipe connects into the C drive unit that connects the engine gear box to the prop. It may just be pure coincidence, but the shock of the engine stopping so suddenly may have caused this problem.

Has any one else suffered a leak like this before? Does any one have a drawing of the C drive unit showing all the components?

I look forward to all comments

Hi Gary, Sorry to hear of your bad luck. We were with Lemma until recently but (due to no foresight about their bankruptcy, we simply needed different coverage) we just got a new policy with ACE American Insurance Company provided by Morgan Wells with Jack Martin & Associates Insurance in Annapolis. 800-421-8818. We found the new policy & premium to be very competetive for sailing the Caribbean area. Good luck !John & RuthMOON DOGSM 248

To find us, take the coconut milk run from Panama across the Pacific to the Marqueses islands, then through French Polynesia, then if you can tear yourself away, to Tonga then to Fiji. Turn left and 1200 miles and you are in New Zealand. Our home port is Mangonui in the far north. You have the boat that is expressly designed for a voyage such as this.

I have been dreaming of this moment for quite some time now.

I am the new owner of the 2000 Super Maramu SM2K #289 – NIKIMAT, (formerly known as Galacsea - was briefly named Baloa).

Many many thanks to everyone especially John (SV Notre Vie SM2K #391) who first show me his Super Maramu back in 2010, but also Bill (S/V Bebe SM2K #387), Danny and Yvonne (Ocean pearl SM #299), Kent (KRISTY SM #243), Ian & Judy Jenkins (Pen Azen SM #302), Mark (SM2K 331), Pat (SM 123), Serge (Opera Mango#51), Dave Benjamin (Maramu #29), Mike & Chris (Akwaaba Santorin 27), Lars (Salvagny, Santorin #79) on the forum (hope I didn't forget anyone) who spent their time to reply to my never ending questions. Many many thanks again.

I definitely plan on being very active on the forum, sharing my experiences.
Sincerely, Alexandre
