Trailer Parking Space

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

I’m looking for a space to rent to park my 18’ pop-up camper until early December (~6 weeks). The camper is 18’ long, 7.5’ wide & 4.5’ tall. I’m a live-aboard here at Shilshole. If you have any suggestions, email me at wytychaksupport@gmail.com

Great Washington ShakeOut

Published by under Shilshole Prepares

October 17 @ 10:17 am – 10:30 am

Most of Washington is prone to earthquakes. You could be anywhere when an earthquake strikes: at home, at work, at school or even on vacation.

What we do now will determine our quality of life after our next big earthquake. Are you prepared to survive and recover quickly?

The Great Washington ShakeOut is a statewide opportunity to practice how to be safer during big earthquakes: “Drop, Cover and Hold On.” The ShakeOut has also been organized to encourage you, your community, your school, or your organization to review and update emergency preparedness plans and supplies, and to secure your space in order to prevent damage and injuries.

Ballard Locks large chamber to close for repairs

Published by under Shilshole Neighbors

The Hiram M. Chittenden Locks large chamber will close to all vessel traffic 6:30 a.m. October 12, for the first of four scheduled extended closures to begin replacing the chamber’s filling culvert valves.

It will remain closed for up to 53 days, with a scheduled reopening December 3. That’s a month longer than the typical November annual maintenance closure two to three week time frame. The small chamber will remain open during this time and vessels up to 28-feet wide by 123-feet long are able to use it.

Race Your House-Nov 2nd

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

Here’s a chance to put away the flower pots, roll up the floor mats and take your “house” for a spin.  It’s a fun “race” around the buoys open to all liveaboard sailboats. The entry fee is only $20, and you don’t have to have any racing experience! There’s a party the night before to explain the rules and meet your neighbors.

..and there’s plenty of time to plan ahead!
