"1. Raymond A. Gill, Jr., the owner of the M/Y Continuance, brings this action to recover damages stemming from its loss when it sank on March 13, 2010. The M/Y Continuance then was covered by a marine-insurance policy issued by Ace American Insurance, that was obtained through Valvano Insurance Agency and Marine Underwriters Agency. Raymond A. Gill, Jr. seeks against Ace American Insurance Company damages measured by his loss of the M/Y Continuance based on a breach of a marine-insurance contract, estoppel to raise the lay-up warranty in the marine-insurance policy, and reformation of the marine-insurance policy based on a mutual mistake to remove the lay-up warranty. Alternatively, Raymond A. Gill, Jr. seeks against Valvano Insurance Agency and Marine Underwriters Agency damages measured by his loss of the M/Y Continuance based on the negligence of Valvano Insurance Agency and Marine Underwriters Agency and their breach of contract to obtain a marine-insurance policy covering the loss of the M/Y Continuance (i.e., a marine-insurance policy without a lay-up warranty)."
