    Default What would you do if your boat totally disappeared?

    Whilst we're discussing Autumn hypotheticals, what would you do if your boat suddenly completely disappeared, and you similarly mysteriously found your bank balance increased by its market value?

    Buy the same again?

    Buy bigger / smaller / different type etc?

    Not buy another boat and charter instead (opportunity to sail in other locations)?

    Give up sailing altogether?

    Any other course of action...?
    Plan B...?

    As opposed to partially disappeared I suppose, like my late friend who sold a half share.

    I am too near to having to give up sailing to consider replacing like for like. I'm not even sure that I would want to undertake the maintenance of something like a small chugging motorboat and simply downsizing simply replaces poverty with discomfort. I think that I would bank the money and set about spending it. I had a taste of business-class travel last year and this could a useful way of keeping it out of the way of my heirs.

    Whilst we're discussing Autumn hypotheticals I'm intrigued at the possibility of it slowly but only partially disappearing. Then you'd really have something to write home about!

    I'd find out who deposited the money and go and get my boat back ....

    This is my AWB. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    My AWB is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

    Without me, my AWB is useless ... etc etc.
    ... seriously, I've spent years sorting it out to get it how I want it.

    Only market value that is a tad disappointing, I'd prefer the value of the sum total of the parts.

    That's what "agreed value" insurance policies are for.
