Olive Downey, Schull, Co. Cork. (owner of Dufour365 "St Jude")

On the 19th June 2010, my inboard diesel engine overheated coming out of Crookhaven. We sailed back to Schull and subsequently established that the head was cracked. The insurance company would not appoint a surveyor until I gave them a quotation.


All in all it was one month before their surveyor arrived in Schull. He made every attempt to find an exclusion, although it was quite clear that the damage in the cooling water pipe was covered. Owens McCarthy brought in their Marine partner, Noel O'Regan, and manners were soon put on the Insurance Company's Surveyor.

If I had gone to Owens McCarthy earlier, we would not have lost the entire sailing summer. I will know better next time.
