    Hi Vlad
    Boat insurance has become a bit of an issue over the last few years as the insurance industry in general struggles. I have not yet heard of a MacGregor being refused insurance but other boats are running into that problem. Group discounts seem to be a thing of the past. Some members with older boats have been required to get a marine survey done on their boat before it can be insured. You can find a list of surveyors and an old copy of policy wording under downloads/reference documents.
    We insured Gemini through our agent who also handles house and car insurance. She found Premier Marine and we are insured for about $450 a year. You need to be a bit careful about the wording of the policy and what is covered. You should check out the MYCBC presentation on Boat Insurance
    I believe you can still get insurance with your membership to the Canadian Power Squadron, so you might want to investigate that.
