With the NOAA Climate Prediction Center forecasting an "active or extremely active season this year," recreational boaters will be making storm preparations for a likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms.
BoatUS just added another tool by offering three online seminars on the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy that share an analysis of what worked, what didn't, and suggests some lessons learned.
The seminars, along with a range of free storm planning, preparation and tracking tools can be found at www.BoatUS.com/hurricanes.
While they were designed for marina and boat club managers, each one-hour long seminar shares relevant and important information for boat owners as well. All of the information is taken from first-hand accounts of the BoatUS Catastrophe Response Team.
