With hurricane season beginning in June, it is important to prepare and protect your boat from severe weather.
We recommend beginning preparations by becoming aware of the specific danger zones and the forces you may face during a hurricane. In this BoatSafe.com article, Jim Krzenski, Chief Warrant Officer of a Florida-based U.S. Coast Guard Station, reviews hurricane-associated terms and discusses specific preparations mariners can take to help themselves and their boats survive the storm. You can also review detailed information about warning systems, storm scales and more by visiting the U.S. Coastguard’s storm center.
Additionally, while we hope you and your vessel steer clear of storms this season, BoatSafe.com offers a helpful checklist of the many things to consider before, during and after a hurricane.
