Here’s how we prepared our boat for Hurricane Irma. At the time we made these preparations, hurricane Irma was forecast to make a direct hit in Charleston, South Carolina. Knowing that Britican’s survival would be better out of the marina and as inland (up a river) as possible, we moved her as far as we could.
Once she was prepared and anchored, my family left our home and headed northwest to my brothers house to sit out the storm.
