Avoid iced-up cockpit drains

If your boat is on an exposed mooring through the winter, or if heavy rainfall or snowfall is expected, bear in mind that slush and ice can block your cockpit drains – and if there’s a lot of wind, rain or snow that could swamp the boat. Consider a cockpit cover or make regular trips out there to clear the drains. Best of all, find a more secure mooring for the winter!
