Hi Everyone…we are new members and excited to get out on our newly purchased 1998 26x. We are currently looking for insurance and have been asked to get a survey done. Has anyone bought insurance recently and avoided this?? Also wondering for those that transit through US waters from Crescent Beach to the Gulf Islands, do you need to notify the authorities in either country?
Regarding insurance: I asked this question recently on our Facebook group. I was directed to speak to:
Johnston Meier Insurance Agencies Group
305-2748 Lougheed Hwy, Port Coquitlam BC V3B 6P2
Tel: 604-944-9577 ext.63344
She was excellent, and she was able to find me an insurer that didn’t require a survey (but I will need to get one in 5 years).
Welcome to the home of the Macgregor Yacht Club of British Columbia. We are a group of present and past Macgregor Yacht and Tattoo Yacht owners. Most of our members are in British Columbia, Canada, although we do have members from other places in Canada and the USA.
We organize on and off the water activities for owners of Macgregor and Tattoo boats; regattas, cruises, flotillas and our annual all member get together ‘MacRendezvous’. Members share tips, ideas, and hard-come-by knowledge about how to maximize the joy of owning these wonderfully affordable boats.
The basic, free sections of this website is open for all to enjoy.
You can register for free to have additional access to public forum where you can communicate with the club and can be included in emails that the club sends to members and registered users related to upcoming activities.
MYCBC membership provides you with full access to all areas of the website and the ability to participate in all activities. The modest, annual membership fee is $65 for the first year (which includes a club burgie and welcome package) and $35 per year thereafter. Membership in the club is recognized at marine stores and marinas for discounts on supplies and moorage. We also have negotiated discount insurance coverage for members. The saving you can expect will pay back your membership fee manyfold.
