    Default Insurance Survey - Portsmouth

    Despite within the last 6 months having replaced standing rigging, through hulls and sea cocks replaced, and stern gland within last 12 months, GJW are insisting on full survey before March 2020. A little surprised by this but I do like their single handed cover arrangements. Can anyone recommend a (low cost) insurance surveyor for vessel on the hard at Wicormarine ?. Many thanks .....

    Why are you surprised?

    They are covering the risk, they can ask for a survey every 10 years. Many companies will ask to see the last survey if taking on the risk.

    Tell them you're not keen on spending multiples of your premium to continue to give them business. I did and they allowed me an extra 2 years without a survey.

    So how do house insurers manage without repeated surveys?

    I'd rather be tethered to a pad eye than tethered to an iPad.

    Houses don't move much.

    Why have I now got the vision of my house drifting down the road and about to crash into the village pub?

    I should send you the name of the guy who surveyed our boat, he was unable to find even glaring major faults. If you are looking to keep maintenance costs down, he would be ideal!

    At Southampton Boat Show you will see that the largest marquee is GYW - if you have a poor product - market as hard as you can.
    Go to SAGA or almost anyother insurer.

    As no one else seems to have answered your question try Diana Roberts at Burselden. 02380 404523 Mob 07985432167. She does a good job at a reasonable price and knows the difference between a full survey and an insurance job. Did mine last year, no problem.
