Hurricane season is officially upon us and that means one thing – it’s time to talk insurance.

For those who keep your boats on coastal waterways or anywhere throughout the Southeast United States, it’s important to be prepared if and when a hurricane hits. A big part of that involves knowing what to do when it comes to your boat insurance policy.

In the past, we’ve highlighted what to do to prepare early on in the season. We’ve talked about the important steps of taking an inventory, with photos, of your boat and its contents and having a detailed storm plan on-hand and ready to go the moment a storm is forecasted – but what about after the storm has passed?

Our very own experts at Sea Insure have offered up five simple tips to filing a claim:

Don’t let out-of-pocket repair bills sink you this hurricane season. Make sure you’re covered for whatever Mother Nature might throw your way. Ask questions, know your policy and be proactive.
