    Most experienced cruisers and charter captains know, Always have two lines on a tender when towing.
    you would be surprised how many tenders are lost simply because the knot on a single two line slipped through or came untied from a cleat. Use two tow lines always. And, always, I mean always lock your dingy everywhere you go. Lock the motor to the
    tender and lock the tender an the motor to the dock with a stout cable or chain. This is cruising 101 in Florida and the Caribbean. Good Luck, Mitch

    Typical insurance company. Everything is fine as long as the money is flowing
    in their direction. Most surveyors have a clause in their surveys that state that they are not responsible for unseen items so forget that idea. Your insurance co. should pay on this one. I would call your state insurance commissioner first then get a lawyer.

    I concur completely with the above advice. The one time I had an insurance company problem, I went to the state insurance commission and the insurance company immediately backed down even before I hired a lawyer...

    Go Get Em!
