Outer Reef’s 2024 Hurricane Preparedness List

June 11, 2024

As we enter the hurricane season, it is crucial for us to be proactive and well-prepared to safeguard ourselves and our beloved vessels from potential storms and adverse weather conditions. At Outer Reef Yachts, we understand the importance of preparedness, and we are here to support you in your efforts to ensure the safety of both you and your yacht.

To assist you in your preparedness journey, we have compiled a comprehensive checklist of essential measures to consider before, during, and after a storm. 

  • Remove flags and flagstaff
  • Check fenders and add as many as possible
  • Check and add as many lines as possible - tie off the dock if possible
  • Check and put chafing gear on all lines, if possible
  • Check surrounding boats and make sure they are secure - contact owners if possible
  • Make sure weathertight exterior doors, watertight interior doors and port holes are dogged tight
  • Check the dock and surrounding area for any loose debris and secure
  • Fill water tank
  • Fill fuel tanks
  • Remove Eisenglass, covers and cushions and put antennas down
  • Turn off all unnecessary power, lights and equipment
  • If you don't have anything in the refrigerators or freezers, inverting is not suggested
  • Remember if power is lost and you are using the inverter, you only have a short time frame to get power back online
