After the storm
Guy's and gals,
We all just went through a rough spell weather wise (well some of us have another 24 hrs. to go) but those of us with slip berthed boats need to keep an eye on a few things....
Check all your lines,make sure they are not chaffed or worn after the storm.
Check to make sure none of your cleats loostend up,the constant tugging can lead to loostend cleats.
Check and clean any debris that may have gotten in the screen of your bilge pump or float,it got a seasons worth of work in a few days.
Clear all debris from between the dock and your boat,help take the strain off of your lines,cleats and dock during peak tidal flow
Check your house battery for state of charge,if it is below 12 volts a charge may be in order,dont depend on the boat to re-charging it ,if it is below 12 volts,it will surely give you trouble latter if you dont run the boat long enough to charge it,this is epsecialy true on outboards....
Lastly,use caution when motoring about this weekend,there is alot of debris in the water, a log hidden just under the surface sure could ruin you weekend.....
