if you do not have insurance and you a live aboard (51% of the time} and if your boat gets damaged during a declared disaster FEMA will help with repairs.
you will have to call FEMA (•Phone: (800) 621-FEMA (3362). and they will not pay for new motors or sails only what need to live on your boat but FEMA will help with your repairs.
they will need id and boat info and proof you live on it which can me kept on a water proof flash drive.
Please pass this info on.
good luck
Is this for storms in the USA and only for US nationals only in that storm.
Or is it for US nationals that are affected by storm damage even if it happens out side the US?
