I have a restoration project (1960s 40ft timber yacht) that sits on a mooring in Sydney and once a year is towed to a shipyard to be antifouled. I want to get third party insurance at minimum to ensure that I don't get stung if *touch wood* she broke free in bad weather and caused damage to another boat. But I'm also weighing up comprehensive insurance now that I've invested a lot of time into restoring the boat.

At the moment I'm looking at Anchorage insurance but I'm not sure what else is out there. Any recommendations?

We could nearly start an insurance forum ! squaredance the only quote I could get so far for 1963 wood vessel is from Edward William marine insurance worldwide. No need for survey, just some pictures, sensible questions - fire extinguishers- storm prep etc. Has anyone any knowledge of this company ?

Quoting myself, just found a warning on this forum from April 2019 warning about the insurance company I mentioned and other forums as well, very few good comments. But if you need the bit of paper to be able to haul out and can find any other, any port in a storm I guess

Thanks for the tip! I'll keep looking around, although last time I tried to get insurance a few years ago I got knocked back- told they don't insure anything that old or made of wood! There is talk that I may need to get that magic piece of paper to be able to work on the boat when it's on dry dock so I might resort to the company you mentioned.

Pantanius come good for my wood vessel. Since I figured out Edward William & stopped communicating with them I have been receiving annoying almost scam like emails
