Shilshole Free Pile

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.  Our old boat parts, books, etc may be exactly what your neighbor needs. For those that are on Facebook here at Shilshole, there is an online free swap exchange.  Here is a description from their site…

“The Shilshole Free Pile Group is for members of the Shilshole Marina community who have items they no longer need for but could still be of use to others. For years people have been leaving perfectly usable items for by the dumpsters, in restrooms, and in the laundry room. Items range from high-end electronics to clothing. It seems that the current port policy is to throw these items in the trash when found sitting by the dumpsters or left in the laundry too long. Consider this group a virtual Free Pile area for items you would like to get rid of without adding to a landfill. -this is a closed group for current Tenants of Shilshole Marina -first come, first serve. -suggestions are appreciated. rules may change and evolve through time. Please feel free to invite other Tenants. Cheers”

Fire on P dock

This morning a @30 foot power boat caught fire at slip P71.  It started about 11:30 and was contained by the fire dept by 11:50.  No other boats were involved other than slight damage to the vinyl dodger of the boat next door.  No one was on board and when the first explosion occurred, a nearby liveaboard called 911.

Reminder, in an emergency in the marina, be sure to turn your VHF on to CH 71 to hear any updates.

Projects in Ballard

We have all been affected these past several months by the bike trail construction (aka Missing Link, aka Ballard Multimodal) between the Locks and 24th st.  It should be done in the late spring according to SDOT.

Then, in mid-summer, SDOT will begin construction of the NW Market St Paving Project which encompasses paving, sidewalk repair, curb ramp upgrades, water main replacements and stormwater drainage improvements.

Project map

From 2020 to 2021, Seattle Public Utilities and King County Wastewater Treatment Division are building an underground storage tunnel to significantly reduce the amount of polluted stormwater (from rain) and sewage that flows into the Lake Washington Ship Canal, Salmon Bay and Lake Union from our sewer system. This will be a 2.7-mile, 18-ft diameter tunnel that will extend from Ballard to Wallingford.

An aerial map of the Ship Canal Water Quality Project site. The base map shows the projected storage tunnel location, which runs along Shilshole Avenue Northwest in Ballard to North 35th Street in Wallingford. Project areas are shown as purple boxes, sites include Ballard (located near the intersection of 24th Avenue Northwest and Northwest Market Street), East Ballard (located near the intersection of Northwest 45th Street and 9th Avenue Northwest), Fremont (located near the intersection of North 36th Street and 3rd Avenue Northwest), Queen Anne (located near the intersection of Queen Anne Avenue North and West Nickerson Street) and Wallingford (located near the intersection of Interlake Avenue and North 35th Street).
