WA State Boater Registration Renewal

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

All yearly registration Decals for boats in Washington State expire June 30th. Per the WA St. Reg.

Fisheries Supply Spring Swap Meet

Sat, April 6th, 5am to 1pm

What to Expect:

A maritime flea market, full of boating goods, old parts, and new parts, outboards, buoys, dock line, coolers, heaters, chain, clothing, and so much more. Die-hard bargain boaters have been known to arrive the night before to stake out a good parking spot, although sellers are not allowed to use the lower tier of the upper parking lot (closest to the store entrance). In addition to the hundreds of boaters buying, selling and trading boating equipment, Fisheries will be offering great pricing on clearance, discontinued, overstock, scratch and dent products, and last seasons clothing.
