    LIfe insurance after divorce

    you didn't an you didn't say whether it was a term or permanent policy, or who actually owns the policy. if it is term, then let it go, your better off buying lottery ticks w the premium. Industry average for term death bene's paid is 2%. Not a good gamble...

    Prada Cup

    bending the mast and taking on Cunningham do not achieve all of the same results. where bending the rig will flatten in general, move the draft slightly aft and twist off the top. Cunny will also flatten and twist open, but move the draft forward.

    Prada Cup

    The runners were not the cause, Watch from 12 to 16 secs on the vid at 50% speed. the boat is starting the round down, loading up getting ready to launch.. Watch where the runners hit the leech of the main. There is very light deflection for that initial load up. if the runners were preventing the main to go out they would be pressed way in on the leach. by 16sec's they were toast, didn't matter what the runners were doing...

    Insurance AGENTS

    I'm a P&C agent in the midwest. 35 yrs, a lot of marine work. i've sailed 50... The market is getting hard, actually started a few yrs ago. couple thoughts, Try Gowrie in Annap for the worldwide pickle forks, they have access to some London mkts. to everyone who has a policy now, don't loose it! Pay the premium on time and don't file a claim unless your in a liferaft. Sail Safe,
