    I'm with GJW and didn't have single handed on my policy as never thought I'd need to, now we're under 10m is not an issue anymore.

    Worth checking, I'm not sure what the sizes are but we went from 10m to 6.5m and I think 10m was the cross over but I expect it's different with different insurers.

    Result of the conversation may be that you take a forced sleep immediately afterwards.................... I'm speaking from personal experience here of course.

    I asked them to remove the "not solo at night" clause, which they did, after we had a bit of a strange conversation that started with "Do you have an autopilot?". Boat is a bit under 9m.

    Yep it was just perfect out on the Solent last Weekend. Saturday, calm solent and with the sun on the canvas kept me reasonably warm. We went over to Bembridge for the night, it was just superb and a nice cream tea in St Helens. Just love having a choice of where to berth on a 200ft pontoon.

    That reminds me, Duver pontoon, it dries out at the moment (spring tide), you need to make sure your closer to the office end of the pontoon. Under new owners and plan to dredge soon.

    That's what I did, just called them and now covered for solo day and night, I think there was a slight increase on my excess. Also the same for at anchor, out sight clause, that was changed to.
