I've been shopping around for insurance for the Leisure I recently purchased. Being a bit lazy I did it on the web. GJW emailed me back with a quote for around 150 quid. With the email were some attatchments. One being the Key Facts blurb. The other a copy of the policy doc. The last being an Owners Condition Report. This I have been asked to fill in and return to them. It is basically a check list with boxes to tick being Good, Average, Poor, N/A. Surely in the event of a claim this would be one of their biggest get out clauses. I've had car insurance companies kick off in the event of a claim stating that the wheel trims are non standard!
Now with the boat being over 20 years old I would have thought that they would have insisted on a survey. No where in the email/docs/policy etc does it state that they require one. Is this the norm? I could have sworn the last time I had insurance on the last boat a survey had to be submitted.
So million dollar question, has anyboby got insurance with GJW? Any problems with them and, god forbid, has anyone had to use their insurance policy in anger?
