Boat Repair Specialists in Minnetonka MN
Storms, hurricanes, severe weather and more: the bane of your boat’s existence. It is crucial for every boat owner to have a plan of action. The key to protecting your boat from storms, hurricanes or any severe threatening weather is developing a plan, preparing, and acting in a timely matter.
Below are 5 guidelines to follow to help keep your boat storm-damage free.
1. Develop a plan of action
Prior to the storm season, create a plan of action to safely move your boat from the storm area to a safer spot. Find out what equipment and tools you will need to move your boat. Make sure to operate a “test-run” of your plan prior to storm season or winter.
2. Double Check your Agreements
If you have a lease or storage rental agreement, check with the marina or storage area to make sure everything is correct. Know your responsibilities and liabilities as well as those of the marina.
3. Combine all Records
Combine all records which may include any insurance policies, vessel registration, equipment inventory, and lease agreements and store them in a folder. These might be required when you return to check on your boat.
4. Inventory Checklist
Create and keep an inventory list of belongings that were removed or left on your boat
5. Close and Seal
Close and seal openings and tape any windows that may break from wind force or from the chilling winter freeze.
