With the approach of Hurricane Sandy (Oct. 25, 2012) toward the U.S. east coast, it's time to immediately begin protecting your boat, if it is in the path of strong winds, waves and storm surge. Read the Boat/US hurricane preparation information at www.boatus.com/hurricanes/brochure.asp. 48 hours is almost too late to take action. If you read this after the storm passes, save the information for future use.
