As we enter peak hurricane season, is your boat prepared to weather the storm? The nation’s largest advocacy, services and safety group, BoatUS, is urging boaters to be ready and is offering free recreational boat, yacht club, and marina-preparation information at BoatUS.com/Hurricanes.
Novice and recreational boaters should note, it doesn’t take a direct hit from a hurricane to cause damage. Prior to a storm, the most important consideration is location — whether it’s a marina, floating dock or sheltered canal. Additionally, using higher quality docklines and taking the time to properly secure your boat can prevent damage.
