A personal thanks to my 76 year old insurance agent, Augusto Pereira, one of the oldest and best insurance agents in the world.

This is a recommendation for the insurance company La Positiva. Dawn on the Amazon III was insured for the maximum. La Positiva paid the full amount in four months. La Positiva did what they said they would do. If you are in Iquitos Peru and need insurance, choose La Positiva.

For the many that said, “No company insures wooden boats…”, “You won’t get a penny…”, “…you will get a penny, it will take over a year”, you were wrong.

No I am not going to rebuild. The chances of building a boat from scratch as sweet as Dawn III are slim. We must have made it look easy. Several new boats are being built around Iquitos. Will the market grow to fill all of those new cabins? I hope so. My new business plan is to charter, rent, or lease boats or cabins as needed. I know every boat.

If you are looking to book an Amazon Cruise you will still want to contact me.

Hi Bill
It is great to hear that your coverage worked. I completely understand not wanting to build another boat and I know you are very knowledgeable about the other boats in the area. We are looking forward to seeing you in June. Dottie and i are giving a talk tomorrow and another Thursday: subject Pink Dolphins and the Riberenos. As you might guess you and Dawn on the Amazon are prominently referenced in the presentation. If you get a chance please send me the river levels. I cannot read the graph you had on the Blog. Hope all is well there.
