This one is going to be close. We Highly recommend that you Do Not stay on your vessel. They are predicting over 80 MPH sustained winds Sunday evening. If you haven't already, please ensure your boat is as secure as you can. We will be here to assist as much as we can. Stay safe everyone. ... See MoreSee Less
Now is the time to check your vessel to ensure it is secured properly, remove all movable equipment such as canvas, sails, dinghies, radios, cushions, biminis and roller furling sails. Lash down everything you cannot remove, such as tillers, wheels, booms, etc. Seal all openings to make the boat as watertight as possible.
Arrange for a reliable person to learn and carry out your hurricane plan if you are out of town during a hurricane or severe storm. Know your responsibilities and liabilities as well as those of the marina.
Consolidate all documents including insurance policies, a recent photograph or video tape of your vessel, boat registration, equipment inventory, lease agreement with the marina, and telephone numbers of appropriate authorities. Keep the documents in your possession in a locked water-proof box. They may be needed when you return to check on your boat after the hurricane. Maintain an inventory list of both the items removed and those left on board. Items of value should be marked so that they can be readily identified.
Double all lines. Rig crossing spring lines fore and aft. Make sure lines will not slip off pilings. All storm lines should be at least one size larger than regular lines. Cover all lines at rough points to prevent chafing. Wrap with tape, rags, rubber hoses, etc. Install fenders to protect the boat from rubbing against the pier, pilings and other boats.
Batteries should be fully charged and checked to ensure their capability to run automatic bilge pumps for the duration of the storm. Consider backup batteries.
Turn off all other devices consuming electricity. Do not stay aboard. First and foremost, safeguard human life. Winds during any hurricane can exceed 100 mph, and tornadoes are often associated with these storms. In addition, when winds and seas warrant, marine agencies remove their boats from service and will be unavailable to rescue foolish boaters.
During the Hurricane: Do not stay aboard any vessel during a hurricane. If you have taken all the preliminary precautions previously outlined, you have done all that can be done in anticipation of the storm. Stay in a protected and safe place. Attend to the safety of family, home and other personal property. Stay tuned to news broadcasts and weather advisories concerning the hurricane so that you will know when the danger has passed.
Our staff will be on hand to assist as much as we can. If you need some help contact the office at 321-383-5600 or hail us on channel 68.

So glad we are not in any marina on the east coast right now.
IF you are going to stay on your boat for the hurricane, do your family and the local authorities a favor. Write your name and the name/ phone number of your next-of-kin on your torso with an indelible marker. The torso is best as your arms and legs may not stay attached. I helped the Monroe County Medical Examiner with identifying recovered cadavers after the last hurricane hit Marathon. It would have been much easier if everyone who stayed aboard had done this. If you stay, and I recommend against it, please mark your body so they know who you were. It really helps a lot.
