Severe Weather Alert - NT

16/03/2018

As Cyclone Marcus approaches Darwin our thoughts are with our members in affected areas. Your safety is first priority, and we encourage you to stay in touch with local authorities and heed all safety warnings and instructions.

If you have time and it is safe please take the following precautions before the storm:

Trailerboats

  • High winds will damage covers and clears - remove them.
  • Remove bungs and debris in boats to allow water to drain.
  • Remove any unsecured property from in and around the boat.
  • Do not leave your boat under trees which are likely to damage the boat.
  • Remove all electronics if possible.
  • Move trailer boats away from water due to storm surge and flooding rivers.
Moored boats
  • High winds will damage covers and clears - remove them.
  • Remove any unsecured property from in and around the boat.
  • Remove all electronics if possible.
  • Double ropes where possible.
  • If you have extra fenders, use them all.
