Marine insurance survey

hey guys, I’m nearing the end of a 2 1/2 year rebuild of an old huntsman 20(same as Bertram 20/ pride Bahia mar), and am getting to the pointy end where I need to figure out what I’m going to need for insurance being a rebuilt boat. I am wondering could anyone give me any info on anything  I could have possibly missed or handy tips for this end of the build, plus the contact number of a good marine surveyor I can speak with it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

RAC dont require a survey but i dont know how good they are on claims (have not had to test it luckily!)
Trident, Nautilas and Club M probs will want a survey and i have had 3 claims over the years and both Club M and Nautilus were fk sticks to deal with - although others have had better experiences

In short - i think they are all the same

 i had no happiness from club marine - changed to RAC because they paid a m8s claim 

replaced his whole canopy and clears for a small hole in the clears- his fault 

never had to use it yet

 Found sgio was cheapest. Easy to claim and didn't have to provide survey for early 80's boat
