  • If you have permanent water hookup to the dock, please contact the marina office to get a waiver signed so they don’t disconnect you at an inopportune time
  • Please check on your neighbors, especially the elderly or those with limited mobility and if you need help yourself, don’t hesitate to ask for help from either your neighbors or the Port staff at 206-601-4089.
  • Be careful with space heaters-don’t use them with extension cords! Turn off your water heater breaker at night so you can have more amps and won’t blow your main breaker.
  • Be careful walking the docks-stay in the middle.
  • Snow shovels are available to check out at the office.
  • Be patient with the Pumpout services…if the marina pumps are frozen, they can’t use them either.
  • Keep your water tanks topped off when your hose defrosts.
  • Don’t drive if you don’t have to, but top off your car gas tank in case you get stuck out driving, and have water, snacks, blankets and boots in the car.
  • When it warms up and starts to melt, make sure your scuppers are clear to drain.

Have a fun and safe holiday week!
