Do all insurers ask for yacht surveys? I recently purchased a small yacht(22ft) which is of limited value - less than 4K. Ordinarily I would want fully comp cover but it seems the minimum charge for a survey is considerably more than the likely cost of the insurance premium. Any advice ?

I had the same problem last year, ending up switching my insurance to Craftinsure, who were very understanding and didnt need a survey

Ian, many thanks for the recommendation. All done, no hassle with Craftinsure.

Coincidently, I may well end up at Medway if I find the Rother at Rye a bit too tricky. That was my original plan as I crew on one of the Sonatas at Medway but the mooring came with the boat so thought I should at least try it. So, if you see a Limbo 6.6 'Blue Max' up your way, say hello! Cheers and thanks.

Good boat for the Medway. Lifting keel for cruising fun over the mud and fast enough to keep up, for a bit of racing.

We'll keep a look out for you :-)
