    Tropical Storm Erika is beating its way to the US coastline. Are boaters preparing?

    Erika Aims for the Coast: Boaters – What’s Your Hurricane Plan?

    PALM BEACH, Fla., August 27, 2015 – In Florida, the Palm Beach Post reported that boat owners are wasting no time preparing for Tropical Storm Erika. However, some boaters still don’t have a hurricane plan. Palm Beach Yacht Center dockmaster Jena Bradley said yesterday that she had received at least 30 calls from boat owners looking for dry dock to store their boat. “All I can say is, ‘I wish you luck.’ I refer them to a couple of places but there’s no guarantee. It amazes me how many have called me today and they don’t have a plan. There’s a named storm out there coming in our direction and they don’t have a plan.’’

    With the storm expected to strengthen and turn north, boaters along the Atlantic coast from Florida to North Carolina have help preparing from Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS). BoatUS offers no cost, downloadable hurricane planning resources for boaters and marinas online at BoatUS.com/hurricanes. Included are:

    1. The easy-to-download, shareable, “BoatUS Tips for Protecting Boats in Hurricanes” is a basic, short, two-page primer on hurricane prep for all boaters in a hurricane state.

    2. “Boater’s Guide to Preparing Boats and Marinas for Hurricanes” is the boater’s guide on Hurricane prep 101, and has more details on protecting your boat and a marina.

    3. “What Works: A Guide to Preparing Marinas, Yacht Clubs and Boats for Hurricanes” is a helpful resource for marina and boat club staff, community resiliency managers and local government that focuses on protecting facilities.

    When a storm approaches, BoatUS.com/hurricanes also has up-to-the-minute storm tracking tools with live satellite images, as well as checklists for what to do before and after a hurricane strikes.

    Much of the hurricane guide information comes from BoatUS and its Marine Insurance Catastrophe (CAT) Team, a national leader in hurricane preparedness that has over 30 years of storm salvage experience. Go to BoatUS.com/hurricanes for more.

    Smarter Anchoring
    By Bob Adriance

    Following a few simple rules will make it much less likely that you’ll go bump in the night.

    In a small cove at Washington state’s James Island, in Puget Sound. Just before dark, another sailboat motored into the cove with a man and woman aboard yelling at each other. They dropped anchor. Dan thought their boat was a bit too close, but always the gentleman, he kept it to himself and went below to make dinner. The weather forecast that night had been for winds around 15 knots, but at about 0200, it began gusting 20, then nearly 30. Dan was on deck checking his anchor when he noticed the husband and wife on the deck of their boat. Their boat now was much closer to Dan’s. The man glanced back at Dan and yelled, “You’re dragging your anchor!” Dan calmly explained that boats don’t drag anchor upwind. One can only hope that the couple learned some valuable lessons that night: about making sure they have enough anchoring room next time, about making sure their anchor really digs when they set it, about making sure they get this all done before darkness falls — and doing it even if the forecast is for calm winds.

    anchored-fore-and-aft-in-calm-conditions

    In calm conditions, anchoring fore and aft can prevent your boat from swinging into an area that might not be suitable, like the shallows in front of this beach.

    Nassau/New Providence Hurrican Holes
    Published August 26, 2015 | By Strider
    Hello, first time cruising the Bahamas and I have Tropical Storm Erika threatening to upgrade to a Cat 1 hurricane and move towards New Providence. The Explorer Charts are great but don’t really point out or suggest any hurricane holes to set up in to wait the storm out. I am currently anchored off of Potter’s Cay, but don’t think that is the best bet. Thank you in advance for any help!

    You might consider Palm Cay Marina, Hurricane Hole Marina, or Lyford Cay Marina.

    Don’t forget Atlantis…yes, expensive, but you will have good peace of mind, and you can go on the giant slide, while you wait for the storm. Do not go into any marina that is exposed to the main harbor, such as Yacht Haven or Nassau Harbor Club, as the surge and wave action will destroy your boat on the dock. Get inside somewhere, and be ready to lengthen your dock likes if there is a surge in front of the storm. And, use all your dock lines, but save 2 in standby.

    Those inside marinas will fill up in a hurry with local boats, so don’t wait to long, and make sure if it is a local boat, and they are next to you, that they don’t use the black polypro lobster line to tie up there boat with which they all use. That is what the two extra lines of yours are for…..good luck

  • High Praise for Hazzard Marine, Georgetown, SC, near AICW Statute Mile 403

    Moving upstream from Winyah Bay, Hazzard Marine is the first facility cruisers will encounter on the downtown, Sampit River Georgetown waterfront. This facility was rebuilt several years ago and now, as Skippers Bill and Devon attest, is a far cry from the forgettable fishing craft dock that once it was.

    Hazzard Marine is one of the best most friendly marinas my wife and I have ever stopped at!
    We were on our way from Carolina Beach NC to the Excuma islands in the Bahamas when we had some unexpected boat problems. Hazzard Marine was the closes marina with a travel lift so we limped on in not knowing anybody there or having reservations.
    WOW is all I can say!! the folks there we so helpful and friendly.
    The entire staff helped with all the repairs/rental cars/meal suggestions/shipping of repair parts,etc etc.
    After 5 days there we hated to leave and move on.
    The prices are reasonable and the marina is very well kept.
    GREAT PLACE FOR A LAYOVER/WEEKENDER/OR JUST TO MEET THESE WONDERFUL FOLKS.

    How To Be The Worst Marina Guest

    ALEXANDRIA, Va., August 24, 2015 – It’s nearing the end of summer cruising season for recreational boaters, who are looking to fit in one more trip away from home. If you’re member of BoatUS, a marina may even give you a discount on fuel, transient dockage or repair work, but most importantly, transient boaters should recognize that they have responsibilities as marina guests. Ignore these duties and you risk earning the scorn of management and being asked to leave. What will get you in trouble? BoatUS worked with the Marina Recreation Association to find out some of the things that could make you a bad guest.

    When strangers call: You’re approaching the gate to your dock, and there they are. Workmen with toolboxes, families with ice chests and water toys, other seemingly nice people all waiting for someone with a key to let them in the marina. It’s awkward, sometimes annoying, and always a pain. What do you do? A simple, “I am sorry, but I can’t let you in,” will suffice. If you think that’s too harsh, you could also give the stranger neighborly advice on where to find the marina office, or tell them that the marina will shoot you at sunrise should you let unknown guests in, but either way, allowing strangers access is bad idea for a bunch of reasons.

    You’ve got chocolate in my peanut butter: You like country music. The guy in the neighboring slip likes rock-n-roll. This won’t turn out as wonderful as a 1980’s Reese’s “you’ve got chocolate in my peanut butter” TV commercial unless you’re considerate of each other. If you want to jam to loud music, do it out on the water away from others. Back at the marina dock, keep it reasonable, honor the marina’s posted quiet hours and you may find some invites to come aboard and make new friends.

    The Fido Hypothesis: Dogs and boats go together, but did you know that a disease-causing bacteria in dog waste is an environmental pollutant? An early 1990’s study of the “Fido Hypothesis” found that at some beaches, dogs helped to raise bacteria levels so high that swimming was prohibited. About the same time EPA placed dog poop in the same category as herbicides and insecticides. That’s right – your dog’s poop is bad stuff. Just like oil, grease and other toxic chemicals, you don’t want bad bacteria leaching into the water we swim in. Don’t be shunned as the “poopie” boater – clean up after Fido.

    It goes without saying that being considerate of others, like not hogging dock carts, keeping docks clear, or following all safety rules makes you a welcome guest. If you are a good marina mate and also a Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) member, give yourself a break by taking advantage of the savings offered on marina fuel, transient slip or repair discounts at www.BoatUS.com/map.
