Default Another Marine Insurance Story

Called my insurance Co to get the binder for our trip to Florida... Great American... Looks like they should be called Great American Except Florida....

"We do not issue variance binders on those Performance Boat policies any more Mr. Harvie" ... Well Thank You for being so accommodating on the coverage valid till next February....

"Hello Sy Golberg from Total Dollar Marine insurance"
"Sy... G.L. on the phone mind giving me a quote..." 2 minute conversation follows...

15 minutes go by

"G.L. ...Sy here do this and that" and your all set....
The this and that was like picking my nose an rubbing one out which took 20 seconds and crisis averted and the policy was less expensive by enough to pay for the PR fee!!! compared to last year policy.

Thank you Sy. And I will have a beer for you in sunny warm Florida (as you prescribed) while admiring the warm turquoise waters of the Keys hopefully getting an eyeful of uncovered racks. (as I prescribe)
