When the weather becomes turbulent here in the Magnolia, TX area, it’s important to make sure your boat is prepared for a storm. Here are a few tips from us at Christian Insurance Agency to help make sure your boat is ready for whatever Mother Nature throws at you.
Tips to prepare your boat for a storm
1. Clean and Inspect
Before the storm hits, make sure you thoroughly clean and inspect your boat to look for any damage or potential weaknesses that could be exacerbated by strong winds and rough seas.
Make sure that you securely anchor your boat in an area sheltered from the wind and waves, and double-check that all lines and anchors are secure.
3. Secure Loose Items
Make sure all loose items on board are securely stowed away. Strong winds can easily turn anything left out into a dangerous missile!
4. Check The Fuel Tank
Before heading out into the storm, make sure you check the fuel tank and fill it up as necessary so that you’ll have enough power to get back home safely if needed.
5. Pack An Emergency Kit
No matter how prepared you are, unexpected things can still happen during a storm so it’s important to have an emergency kit on board with first aid supplies, flares, maps, etc., just in case!
