Thanks, Don.
Got a quote from Markel for liability only for $700 . Tired of being insurance poor. Checking with your company and others. Will let you know what I find.

I obtained my insurance from Wade Dunbar Ins Agency in Oriental NC and the policy is underwritten by Maritime Program Group (or at least that's where the checks go).  My policy is about $1300/yr on $90K valuation of the boat.  This covers me for the east coast and Bahamas with limitations on how far south I can go during hurricane season.  I've had one small claim due to a lightening strike on a neighboring boat and they covered it with no problems.

I hope this helps,

I have collision and liability insurance( No hurricane ) on a 44 W/O with Markel American through USAA. Fourteen years, no claims. The annual renewal is up 50%. Over $2200 for basic coverage. Can't spend that much any more. We will self insure with liability only. Hard to find coverage for these 40 yr old boats.
I would like to know what you owners have for insurance and if you are happy. I haven't checked Geico or Progressive yet. I thought the members on the Net would have some advice. Would appreciate any information.

Successfully connected to Pathfinder raymarine radar plotter via nmea 0183 outputs. Only tricky bit was grounding the tx side of the rl80c  (yellow wire) rather than just connecting to rx side of the matsutec. Next up is connecting ais output to opencpn laptop (Panasonic toughbook), followed by vhf radio for dsc capability.

After last summers storage, my beloved Furuno GP32 refused to power up. Looking for a replacement, I chose a Matsutec HP-528A marine GPS AIS transponder. I am very happy. Avoiding the issues with sharing the mast VHF antennae, I split the FM radio aerial. I can see out to 40 nm easily. I plan on integrating into my old/new to Trinity raymarine pathfinder radar plotter via nmea and will update on success. Should  be plug and play. Total cost with shipping from aliexpress under $300. Includes new GPS antennae, cabling, bracket, cover, etc.

IMPORTANT, Make sure it's the AIS version. Read the description and there will be four connections on the back: power, nmea, gps, and vhf (for ais).

Ted, I am in the process of rebuilding or repowering my CSY 37.  Currently I have a 4107 Westerbeke 40 HP.  Did you remove and repower your boat?  Interested to talking about this with you.

I am in the process of either re-building my 4107 40 HP Westerbeke or re-powering. Looking for recommendations from others on this from their experience.  My first step will be to tear down the locked up engine and assess the damage.

Look forward to anyone else that has experience in doing this.

Many years ago I bought two used portholes from Rick Sheridan of Soggy Paws. After 20 years I have now sold my beloved Csy44, Swallow.
I just wanted spare portholes at the time (as they are hard to come by).
They never came in use for me and they need some TLC but bronze is bronze.
They are located in Stockholm, Sweden.
Freight plus 50$ for both.
