Some helpful reminders…

  • The Port has a great haz-mat recycling program! Used oil, diesel and hydraulic fluid goes in tank near restroom; used batteries, gasoline, and antifreeze/coolant go to Hazmat Box down near Seaview Boatyard (south end)
  • Garbage goes in the green waste container, all recycling goes in the yellow containers.
  • Please put your donated “junk” (items you no longer need but don’t want to toss) near the dumpster and not at the gate, so more people can see them.
  • Remind your guests and crew to park near the street in Guest Parking. The Port is towing all vehicles that are parked in Permit Parking that don’t have a current year permit.
  • Please control your dogs (by your side or on a leash at all times) and please clean up after them! (the Seattle Leash Law is in effect on the docks, too)
  • To avoid smash and grab car break-ins, do not leave items visible in your car.
  • There have been prowlers on the docks and the waterways so please lock your boat, dinghy, etc and please call the Port’s cell phone, 601-4089, if you see anything/anyone suspicious.

Thank you for making this a great place to live and moor!

Winter Storm Season Prep…

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

Don’t forget to…

  • Secure your halyards away from your mast to prevent slapping in the wind.
  • Remove flags
  • Put out extra dock lines and fenders.
  • Secure tarps, sail covers and roller furling.
  • Securely stow: gear on your boat, steps, items behind your dock box, and bail your dinghy!
  • Make sure your power cord has slack in it and that it is not hanging in the water!
  • Water lines may freeze or be shut off…take appropriate action (top off tanks, disconnect hoses, etc.)
  • Contact the Marina staff right away if you see anything of concern (ie: loose sails, frayed dock lines, continuous bilge pump running and any diesel/oil spills).

Thanks for being a good neighbor…

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. You don’t have to have any racing experience! ..and there’s plenty of time to plan ahead!

A Skippers meeting will be online at 6:00 pm Friday, October 30rd. See the race instructions for details.
