    So for many of us doing the SHTP, this race could turn into a LongPac with the turning point at Hanalei Bay? Or Bernard Moitessier's "The Long Way"... kind of inspiring if I think of it that way.

    Ouch, I don't see how I can participate in this race without getting insurance coverage in Hawaii. My underwriter just told me that no carrier she knows would underwrite such policy after the SHTP...

    This is also exactly the same thing as what I heard from my insurance. It's better to cancel it right before the race. That's why I would have to get the boat re-surveyed once I get to Kauai for the...

    Agreed with you, Jim. I'm getting the insurance for the crew on board. For the years that you didn't have insurance for the crew, did you all have to sign a mutual "hold harmless" agreement?

    The attachment between the box and the deck could be the weakest link here, which would be a shame as a design flaw. I'm waiting to hear back from the yard and the surveyor.
