Storm Preparations 

Preparing your boat before a hurricane is crucial to minimize damage and ensure safety for both your vessel and surrounding areas. By taking proactive measures and following these guidelines, you can significantly reduce the risk of damage to your boat and increase the likelihood of a safe outcome during a hurricane.

Here are some essential steps to consider:

  • Anchor or Moor Properly: If unable to move the boat to a safer location, anchor or moor it securely using multiple anchors and heavy-duty mooring lines. Ensure that the anchor is set properly to withstand strong winds and waves.
  • Document and Insure: Take photos or videos of your boat’s condition before the storm for insurance purposes. Review your insurance policy to understand coverage and ensure it’s up to date.
  • Remove Sails, Canvas, and Electronics: Take down and stow sails, canvas covers, and any other loose items that could catch wind and cause damage. Store electronics and valuables in a safe, waterproof location ashore.
  • Double Check Lines and Fenders: Ensure that all lines are properly secured and doubled up if necessary. Use chafe protection to prevent damage from rubbing against pilings or other boats. Adequate fenders should be in place to provide cushioning against impacts.
  • Reduce Windage: Remove or secure items on deck such as antennas, flags, and Bimini tops. Lowering or removing the mast may also reduce windage and minimize the risk of damage.
  • Secure a Safe Location: Ideally, move your boat to a designated hurricane hole, a well-protected marina, or a sturdy dock with high pilings. Avoid leaving your boat in open water or at a vulnerable dock.
  • Bilge Pump and Batteries: Ensure that the bilge pump is functioning properly and the batteries are fully charged. Consider installing a backup power source or bilge pump in case of power failure.
  • Close Seacocks and Hatches: Shut off all through-hull fittings and close seacocks to prevent water ingress. Seal hatches and windows securely to prevent flooding below deck.
  • Plan for Evacuation: Prepare a detailed plan for evacuating your boat if necessary. Identify nearby shelters or safe locations where you can seek refuge in case of an emergency.
  • Stay Informed: Monitor weather forecasts and stay updated on the storm’s progress. Follow any evacuation orders issued by local authorities and be prepared to take action accordingly.
