  • Has your mooring been inspected within the past 1 years? If so, did the mooring pass inspection or have the necessary repairs been made?
  • Were the upper chain, swivel, and pendant line been inspected in the spring? Please note this should have been done as a part of de-winterizing the mooring.
  • Is the mooring adequate to withstand a good storm? Adequate scope in pendant line, chain, and weight?
  • If you plan to pull the boat, do you have a safe place to store the boat away from trees and water?
  • Chafing gear must be in place.
  • All sails should be removed to reduce windage.
  • Dodgers and all loose gear should be removed from the deck.
  • Antennas should be taken down.
  • Charge your batteries.
  • Check your bilge pump.
  • Check that all your hatches are locked and watertight.
  • If the boat is tied to a dock, face the bow of the boat into the weather to avoid waves jumping into the stern of the boat.
  • Tie the boat to several cleats and possibly to the pilings. Do not overload any one cleat.
  • Remove ships papers, personal gear and electronics if you are concerned about losing them.
  • Smaller boats and trailers should be pulled to safe storage. The sooner you do this the better because the boat ramps will be busy.
  • Check your neighbors boat if they are out of town & possibly help prepare their boat.
  • Set your anchor with a minimum of 7:1 scope towards the most or predicted wind direction.
  • Add extra scope to the mooring pendant with two additional lines if there is enough swing room.
  • Obey all local rules and evacuation procedures.
