I keep the weather alert setting on my handheld in the cockpit with me so I won't miss it.
I listen to the weather before I leave port to begin with.
I'm normally off the water before 5pm when the storms typically show up.
The anchor tackle and rode are inspected and neatly stored.
My motor is maintained and reasonably reliable.
