    Cruising Sailboat Partnership

    Who pays the premium when damage occurs and how would it work out if the boat is totaled or declared a loss by your insurer? There are many variables in any relationship that can make things go south quickly and in my experience I have never gotten into a partnership with anyone and my refusal to do so has made some people mad at me because I have skills and money to maintain boats on my own. I’m aware of how bad it could have been if I were in an actual partnership with these types of people.

    Can you buy an old/new sailboat without an MSO?

    I wonder if you could contact the manufacturer and obtain a copy of the mso? I bought a boat new from a dealer and the HIN on the title started out SBW instead of FEB as it appears on the transom. I had to convince the State of Delaware that the mso was incorrect after trying to title it in NJ. Turns out the dealer was lazy about importing and had the HIN start with the initials of his stupid boat dealership, St****s Boat Works instead of Fareast Boats. That was a long, drawn out process that Ultimately worked out in my favor and the boat was titled after providing a copy of the HIN and incorrect #s

    Scattering ashes at sea.

    We delivered old Flos (104) back to the waters she swam during her good life in the river here. Laws against it but we let her go in a calm sea with light winds and no one ate ashes.

    Bought my Ensign from a guy who had health issues that stopped him from using it. He got a Windrider and loves it.

    Importing a EU sailboat into US

    Is there a buyer for the boat or are you hoping to find a buyer when you arrive? US Customs would be a contact and would inspect the boat and documentation upon arrival at port. There are many thousands of boats available here that you would have to compete against. If your boat sells through a broker, it could be a smooth process but take weeks to finalize, even without the pandemic slowing things and depending on the State you choose as your destination, getting a clear title may be quite involved. What kind of boat is it that may be a hot seller over here and why not sell it in France?
