    I was raised to hold Lloyds of London (the group doing the neutering)
    in high regard.  Lloyds would, after all, insure anything for a price,
    the Rolls-Royce of insurance firms.
    I had occasion a few years ago to need world cruising insurance for a
    vessel of mine.  I went to Lloyds and they would not even give me the
    time of day!  I approached them in a couple of different ways and they
    were highly arrogant and condescending and simply refused to even talk
    to me.
    This ship neutering story further corroborates my view that Lloyds has
    sold out and are now to be considered a below average institution.
