HOW A FLOATING DOCK HELPS
IN PREPARING YOUR BOAT FOR A HURRICANE

Preparing Your Boat For A HurricaneYou’ve invested a lot into your boat, both money and pride. Storms are a fact of life and your investment needs to be protected. When it comes to preparing a boat for a hurricane, installing a ProFloat floating dock system is a great place to start.

In recent years, new boats have been built with greater widths, but marina slips have not adjusted at the same rate. The result is that what was once a secure marina may no longer be a safe place to dock during a hurricane or tropical storm. A tighter width makes it more difficult to accommodate the storm surge. Ultimately, boats tied to fixed docks are at greater risk, unable to rise and fall smoothly with the surge.

That’s where the floating docks come in. A well-constructed floating dock system, supported by tall pilings, prevents a boat from moving laterally, while still allowing it to move vertically with the storm surge.

You have too much invested into your boat to let it suffer damage or ruin by an outdated fixed dock. For a free consultation and drawing of what a ProFloat floating docks system might look like for your boat, call (800) 406-6896 or contact us.
