I did ask the question, if we were on our way home from say jersey and due to bad weather we put in to Alderney and we cant contact you no email, or its a weekend (a bit obvious) are we still covered. No reply.
Is this a grey area.
I am probable going to insure with Mardon, and crossing the channel was one of my questions. They added it with no hassle and no need to inform them.
They are sending me the paperwork so ill check that.
The only bit they were not sure of is if I could leave the boat anchored overnight or on a mooring bouy.
It does appear to be a problem with most insurance, the other one I found that offered a good policy was craftinsure. They will not insure inflatables but offer a good basic package and will add most things. They include cover for crossings to France.
I think you need to be very careful of what is and is not insured, as they do not make it clear at the time of getting a quote.
