Please take the time to secure items on your boat. Take items off the pier and finger piers as per the Hurricane Letter sent out June 4, 2012, maintenance crews will remove items and dispose of them.

Once the Orleans Levee District makes the decision to close the floodgates (24 to 36 hours) prior to gale force winds hitting the New Orleans area, all pedestrian/vehicular access will close and all vehicles must be removed from the Marina parking lot. Please take notice that once the facility is closed, no one is allowed to access the facility until the floodgates are re-opened by the Orleans Levee District.

Only during the threat of a storm can you cross piers with line and secure on I beams.

June 4, 2013, 2013

TO ALL MARINA TENANTS:

The official start of hurricane season is June 1, 2013. I want to thank all boat owners who took the time to attend to their vessels prior to hurricane season last year and tied their vessels properly. We encourage all boaters to start early creating their personal hurricane plan in order to be ready well in advance. Please make sure the Harbor Master’s Office has correct telephone numbers and e-mail address on file for you as well as emergency contacts.

Once the Orleans Levee District makes the decision to close the floodgates (24 to 36 hours) prior to gale force winds hitting the New Orleans area, all pedestrian/vehicular access will close and all vehicles must be removed from the Marina parking lot. Please take notice that once the facility is closed, no one is allowed to access the facility until the floodgates are re-opened by the Orleans Levee District.

It is a requirement of your lease agreement to have a current insurance policy and on file at the Harbor Master’s Office providing at least $300,000.00 liability coverage, including wreckage removal and naming the Non-Flood Protection Asset Management Authority, and Orleans Levee District as additional insured/additional interest, with a waiver of subrogation. Also check your policy to assure you are covered for salvage removal.

We suggest changing all mooring lines to your boat. Management will be walking the piers checking on warn or frayed lines. Remove chains and rope from handrails and I beams during non-threat times. The only time a boat is to be tied to railings or I beams is during a hurricane threat.

If your vessel is small, we encourage you to take the boat out of the water and move it to higher ground. This is the safest means of protecting a vessel. If you decide to move your vessel to another location prior to a severe weather emergency, notify the Harbor Master’s Office of your plans. Please be aware that most bridges will close at sustained GALE FORCE winds, time for closure of bridges is somewhat discretionary.

If you intend to move your vessel to another location, move it as early as possible and allow a wide margin for safety.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO REMAIN IN PORT:

1. Clean all dock areas around your vessel and keep it clean. Remove all items under piers and catwalks. Any items left on and/or under piers, catwalks and dock boxes will be removed by maintenance personnel and discarded.

2. As you are aware high tides accompany the threat of hurricane. It is possible that lake water will rise above piers and possibly enter the dock boxes. To reduce exposure to lake waters, remove all chemicals, including oil, engine coolant, hydraulic fluids, gasoline, diesel, paint, and mineral spirits from your dock box, prior to any threat of tidal surge or hurricane.

3. If possible, remove sails entirely and stow them, especially roller furling jibs. If it is not possible to remove sails, then it is imperative to fasten them as securely as possible. Inspect the inside of the cabin and secure or remove everything not fastened down, especially in the galley and storage areas. Special care should be given to chemicals stowed on board. Store away all flags and pennants. Make sure all ports are closed. Secure the tiller or wheels that operate the rudders. Do not leave coils of line on deck without proper stops or other means of securing them.

4. Shut off all fuel tanks.

5. Remove all dinghies and inflatable rafts from the harbor.

6. Turn off all devices consuming electricity except bilge pumps.

Once final preparations are made, remove all ship’s papers and personal gear.

Leave your vessel; do not stay aboard.
