Storm Prep Template This is a general guide to how the club prepares for storms. The precise details vary by the expected intensity and timing of the storms. However, everyone should prepare well in advance! Once the boats start bouncing around on the dock, it is too late to add dock lines. Be aware that the club will shut off power and water to the dock at the last minute. Boats dry-stored on the lower level are exposed to wind and high water. We advise moving them to the upper level temporarily.
