Quiet before the Storm

2009 has delivered a mild hurricane season so far, but is it the quiet before the storm? Just today Clemson University released a research paper showing that hurricanes have increased in frequency over the past five years. Is the worst yet to come? Now is the time to make sure you’re prepared.



Boaters up and down the east coast and across the Gulf of Mexico know better than anybody that hurricanes can not only wreak havoc on waterside towns and property, but that boats and marinas are especially vulnerable. That is why we want to share two very important publications from BoatU.S. – a 12 page guide for boat owners, as well as a 24 page white paper for marinas and yacht clubs – to help boaters prepare for hurricanes.

When the next storm comes, don't  be caught off guard:
