June 1 marks the start of Hurricane Season. As you prepare to get on the water this summer, take the time to properly prepare your vessel and other personal property, especially if you live in a Hurricane-prone area. To help, and in recognition of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Hurricane Preparedness Week, here is a useful checklist from BoatSafe.com to ensure you are ready to safely face stormy weather this hurricane season.
Spring is finally here and so is the beginning of the recreational boat season. If you live in an area finally experiencing warm weather, it’s time to dewinterize your boat. But before you get back into the water, be sure your boat is fully prepared after sitting immobile for so many months. For more information, check out this article from “Boating” magazine about spring boat preperation. And, as always, remember to have you boat inspected by a qualified marine mechanic before heading out on the water this season.
