Get to Know Your Dock Captain

Every dock at Shilshole has a liveaboard tenant that has been designated “Dock Captain”.  This person is in good standing with the Port and acts a liaison between their respective docks and the Port/Marina staff.

The dock captain is required to be familiar with the Shilshole Handbook and Required Best Management Practices and is your go-to person with questions about hazmat waste disposal, pumpout, marina rules, etc.  They also walk your dock to check on boats during inclement weather.  They are not dock police!

Their name and contact information are posted on the gate’s inside bulletin board, and if you haven’t done so already, please introduce yourself to them!

Snow shovels

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

It is unfathomable why the port is no longer making snow shovels available to tenants to clear their finger piers. This is the mindset of the port’s legal Beagels. Ive used a shovel since I was nine years old. Can anyone tell me what’s dangerous about a shovel? This is a continuation of a long trend of reduced service and raised rents. About time we sent the rest of the commissioners packing along with Steinbrueck.

Shilshole Snow/Freeze Response

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

A big thank you to the Port of Seattle for attacking the first snowfall right away by using snowblowers and deicer on the main docks and plows to scrape and sand the parking lot.  It makes it much safer to get around.

But shame on them for not offering shovels for boaters to clear their finger piers!  For the past 20 years, shovels have been available to check out from the office so boaters, who don’t store gardening tools on their boat, can clear their pier and help their neighbors.  Fortunately, no has fallen in the water yet at these temps due to snow covered docks.

Thank you to all of our neighbors that helped clear their docks with the tools you had.
