Shilshole VHF Radio Net

V-Man and Kids V-Man
(Vessel Mutual Assistance Network)

The VHF radio is an important safety item on board any boat and here at Shilshole, we also use it as a form of communication in times of emergency and/or critical events.

We have a weekly VHF radio net to help us get better acquainted with our marine radios, learn radio protocol (manners) and to get to know our neighbors.

The Net has a monitor (net controller), Sheri. She will explain what to do and when to do it. (You may want to just listen in the first time). The Port of Seattle Police and Marina Security also check in to give us an update on any marina issues.

Please join us for V-Man on VHF Channel 71 every Monday night at 8pm. No experience is required and all Shilshole tenants are welcome.

An hour earlier (7pm) on VHF 71, is the Kids V-Man check-in for all the boats that have children on board. It is an opportunity for them to get used to the radio and connect with other kids in the marina!  Parents-please help your kids participate.

Little Library at Shilshole


Shilshole Marina now has a Free Little Library, thanks to Sheri on Fredal!  She has worked hard to obtain permission from the Port, acquire materials, assemble and finish the project and, this week, install it at the Marina Office bldg.  You may have seen these neighborhood libraries throughout the city.  It is a place to leave a book, or take a book …no more having to use the laundry room shelf 🙂

Sheri is net control for the Monday eve V-Man checkin and is a board member of the Shilshole Liveaboard Assoc.
