Unsolicited email…

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

Some of you may have received an email from a person that got your name from what he called the Shilshole “authorized” live-aboard list asking about boat sitting, sublet or possibly marketing his charter business. There is NO authorized live-aboard or non liveaboard tenant list that exists.

What you do to sublet your slip is between you and the Port of Seattle/Shilshole Marina.

If you put your name on a Google Docs email list that is public information for all to see, that is most likely where your information came from.  Just be cautious replying to unsolicited emails.
