Storm Ciarán has sent a reminder that the unseasonably mild weather is on the turn and it’s time to hunker down for the winter.
While we have been experiencing high winds and lashing rain along the south coast, it is important to regularly check your boat for damage and ensure it is safely attached to its mooring.
If you are not planning to use your tender or dory until the new year, then now is the time to either collect it or take advantage of our winter storage offer at £100 for six months. Book your space soon to avoid disappointment.
Did you also know that resident berth and mooring holders are entitled to 10% off boat lifts and launches as well as 30 days free storage at any time of year (excluding under cover storage and seasonal offers)?
As more winter storms are on the horizon, battening down the hatches with early precautions can help to save costly repairs and insurance claims which have been on the rise in recent years. Bilge pump batteries can run down and sails become unfurled, while cockpit drains block with leaves and lines work loose.
Our team carries out regular checks and helps with preparations when storms are forecast but it is always worth making more detailed checks yourselves, to give you peace of mind.
We have good early warnings when new storms are forecast, providing an opportunity to be better prepared when they hit our part of the country.
Our team is on hand 24 hours a day and will walk the pontoons to help prevent any damage but you can help us to ensure that your boat is safely secured and ready to face the winter elements.
