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.

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.
