Welcome GUMP. Is your Humber new or second-hand? Be sure to post some pics when you collect! I had an old Humber (20 yrs) and she was a great boat til we grew out of her.
As far as insurance, I use a broker in Glasgow, but that's mainly cos they were the people my Dad insured with, and they've subsequently been pretty competitive at renewal time. I also like dealing with a person rather than a call centre so that's another thing in their favour. Never had to claim though which is the proof of the pudding!
Mostly , when this topic comes up it's a question of phoning round. Have a search on the forum for Rib Insurance: you'll turn up plenty of recommendations.
