More storms are predicted this hurricane season, the Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) just announced in Soundings magazine's Trade Only Today article in May, 2021. BoatUS urges boaters to adjust to this new normal and prepare. To do so, BoatUS offers free help–boat prep videos, downloadable storm preparation guides, checklists and more. Boaters can create their own hurricane plan, watch a video on how to set lines, or review the BoatUS magazine Hurricane Planning Guide; there is also an app for local storm tracking and alerts.
We recommend immediate attention to the following guidelines below when NOAA weather alerts us that Narragansett Bay could be exposed to a storm or hurricane warning.
