Gulf hurricanes

What do boat owners do to protect their vessels from a hurricane that is approaching shore. I''m specifically refering to boats that are in a slip. Are they simply secured thoroughly where they float or are there other measures that are taken? It appears that given the frequency of hurricanes in the gulf regions hauling the boat and securing it on land would become quite expensive.
