How to keep your boat safe in a storm

The Insurance Team in Queen Creek, AZ is happy to provide boat insurance to our clients who are boat owners. We are also here to offer guidance to better protect your vessel.

It’s no secret that a storm can cause major damage to your boat. In fact, a storm can be so destructive that it can actually sink your boat. That’s why it’s important to take steps to protect your boat from storms. 

Here are five tips for keeping your boat safe during a storm:

1. Make sure your boat is properly anchored

If you don’t anchor your boat properly, it could easily be blown away in the wind.

2. Install storm shutters to protect the boat from high winds

Storm shutters will help keep the wind from damaging the boat or causing it to capsize.

3. Tie down any loose items on the deck

Loose items can become projectiles in a storm and may damage the boat or injure someone on board.

4. Move the boat to a safe location if possible

If you can move your boat to a sheltered area, do so before the storm hits. Some safe places to bring your boat include:

-In a marina or harbor

-Near a breakwater or dock

-In a sheltered cove or bay

-On a lake or river with low winds

5. Keep an eye on the weather forecast and take appropriate precautions

Monitor the weather closely so that you can stay one step ahead of any potential storms.
