In preparation for what some experts predict to be an active hurricane season, Seabrook Marina offers the following planning and preparation checklist. Advance planning is the best protection.
If followed, the suggested time schedule, safety equipment and precautions will reduce the possibility of damage to your boat, but cannot guarantee it. All storms are different and cannot be predicted in terms of wind speeds and tide changes once they make landfall.
Knowing what to expect from a hurricane and when to secure your vessel will help increase chances the vessel will withstand possible damage.
