I had a big boat insured with GJW and sold it as I went back to cat sailing, GJW don't do small boats so they refunded me for the time remaining, I insured the cat with Towergate and after two months injured my arm and had to sell it, Towergate said they would not refund me and as I'd sold the bot they could not even transfer the policy even when I said I was looking at a RIB.

I insured my first RIB with Noble, when I changed to my big one there was a gap and they refunded my the remainder, I then took out a now policy for the new boat.

So MY experience of Towergate has been pretty poor and I said to to stroppy cow on the phone that I would never recomend them to anyone so I'm keeping my word. I'm sure there are people out there that have received poor service form companies I'd recommend.

I have used all sorts over the years and dealt with most for clients boats....

Towergate are becoming/ have become rather 'corporate' over the years to the point where service is not great unless you are a commercial client or your boat is worth millions.

GJW have been good to me for big commerical clients ( building big Aluminium cats etc )

Mardon were OK for me ( but I never needed to claim) .

Porthcawl have been ace on the only claim I have needed to make, maybe not the cheapest but 1st rate service ( for me) , and for my SIB craftinsure suited me as its a simple policy for a simple ( cheapish) boat.

I will not turn it into a football post, but I dont think you will be back in prem for a few years, you have a lot of building to do (on the team that is).

as for ribs, how often do you get to use yours and where do you go. send us a pm if you want, we will keep it on a boating theme, as we both know, if it goes on to football neither of us will change, and i respect that
