Attention: Town of Orleans Boating Community
With the forecasted track of Hurricane Lee, we would like to remind all mariners to ensure that you have a definitive storm refuge plan in place for your boat. Boats that can be trailered should be hauled well ahead of the storm to avoid the last-minute rush at local boat ramps. For those who intend to keep your boat on your current mooring, it is imperative that you verify that the mooring hawser, chain and chaffing gear are all in good working condition. Keep in mind that the mooring tackle specifications required by the Harbormaster are not rated for hurricane conditions. Boat owners should also verify that their boat batteries are charged, and bilge pumps are working properly, and should also ensure that your insurance policies are up to date.
