Marinas.com provides marinas the ability to update the greater boating community about the status of their operations. This new tool allows for marinas and boaters to communicate more efficiently in any emergency situation that may require a full or partial closure.
This tool will be enabled by the Marinas.com team anytime marinas are impacted by regional events that could force closures, such as hurricanes or flooding. Active Alerts will appear in the top banner across Marinas.com’s homepage, and when a marina has updated its Alert status – be it Open, Closed, or Partial Closure – that status will appear on the marina profile as well as in this centralized Alerts page.
Adding an Alert to a Marinas.com Profile
Marina teams can update their marina’s alert status in seconds.
Log into your Marinas.com account – if you need help claiming your profile or logging in, please follow the link here or contact our Support team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-236-8304.
Go to your marina’s profile, and click “Manage Profile” to go to your profile dashboard.
When an Alert is active, it will appear in the left-hand column of your profile dashboard. Click on that Alert.
At the bottom of this Alert management page, you’ll see the option to choose your Status, and provide details. Choose your status and add any additional information that will help boaters understand the degree to which your marina can accommodate their needs.
Save your status – you’re done! For now, that is: if your status changes or once your marina is back up and running, come back to this page to update as often as you need.
How Boaters Can Add Alerts
The boating community is a tight-knit one, and we all rely on the eyes and ears on the water whenever we have them. If you have an update that a marina has not been able to provide us, please shoot a quick email Marinas.com Support – email@example.com – and we will add the Alert for you, will note that this is community-sourced, and will attempt to confirm with the marina directly.
