Hurricane Guide

Protecting Your SureShade Sunshade from Hurricanes and Extreme Weather

Boats in general are very vulnerable to damage during hurricanes and tropical storms. Although SureShade sunshade systems are built with quality marine grade construction and capable of withstanding cruising speeds up to 55 MPH on the water, our systems are not intended for use during hurricane and tropical storm force winds.

SureShade recommends customers take proper precautions to avoid damage during hurricanes, which includes fully retracting and securing the SureShade sunshade system in the unfortunate event of a hurricane or tropical storm.

See our Ground Transportation Guide for recommended securing techniques that can also apply to extreme weather situations.

Hurricane or Extreme Weather Damage

SureShade automatic and manual sunshade systems come with a one year parts warranty that covers normal wear and tear. Any damage incurred from a hurricane, tropical storm or other natural disaster should be submitted as a claim with your boat insurance company.

Please contact us or call 877-333-8323 with questions or concerns, or if replacement canvas or parts for SureShade systems are needed.

You Can’t Own a Boat Without Having a SureShade!

Love SureShade. SureShade solves our family's sun problems by providing coverage for the entire boat with ease. Setup is easy and quick, and nothing obstructs the fishing poles. I can even leave it out while underway - hit 30 knots without retracting the shades. Thank you for making this product a reality and supporting DIYers with older boats.
