    I very much doubt Norman's renewal quote was formulated and delivered quickly enough for that to be a factor. Even if it were, Bishop Skinner's underwriters would need to have been heavily exposed there, which is unlikely. (On the other hand, if they're prepared to insure a crook like Berlusconi, I might just look somewhere else when my renewal comes up...)

    The forums are now so broken that I cannot even get to the second page of this thread. Pantaenius quoted far more than my renewal quote, Y gave me an indicative price about the same as my renewal quote and after talking with GJW I have I have chosen them at a price slightly lower than my initial quote from them because I have had 12 years ownership and sailing the boat with no claims. The end result was over 90 cheaper than my renewal quote and actually cheaper than last year. That's what I call a result.

    It seems it is always worth querying the quote. My car insurance increased by about the amount quoted here. I rang them and they dropped it immediately, not to last year's figure but a lot better than the original quote.

    Premium has not gone up after the incident - they also paid out on a claim on my racing dinghy a few years ago too.
    I had a claim with GJW and as the other reviews they were perfect.

    This insurance company is excellent and there has been no change in Med sailing premium / in fact they specialise in Med and long distance cruising cover. Really nice helpful people who know about sailing Yachtmaster Insurance. Woodbridge
