Here in South Carolina we not only get sever thunderstorms, but high winds and rain from hurricanes can affect the weather.
This being said your boat should always be prepared for bad weather.
Ways to prepare your Boat
Make sure you have your boat tied tight with 4 ropes 1/2in nylon and tied 6-9inches from the front of the dock.
Your bimini top needs to be down in its boot and secured.
Also if we are expecting high winds your full cover should be off, rain and winds can cause the supports to rip the cover and fall.
