Featured Blog: Hurricane Preperation For Boaters

For boat owners, hurricanes present some unique challenges. Because hurricanes generate large tidal surges in addition to all the weather-related damage, they can easily sweep boats off the water and destroy them. Even if your boat isn’t torn away from its moorings, it can sustain significant damage and items aboard your boat will be tossed about. Tending to your boat before a hurricane can help you to save it and spare you expensive repairs or replacements. This guide to hurricane preparation for boaters by Eric’s Outboard Marine Service Inc. in Miami, Florida should help you protect your boat as best you can before the storm hits.
