Some Reminders…

  • The Port has a great haz-mat recycling program! Just call the 24/7 cell to have them meet you so they can dispose of your items:
    • Only used oil, diesel and hydraulic fluid goes in tank near restroom M2;
    • Used batteries, old gasoline/mix, and antifreeze/coolant go to the Hazmat Box down near Seaview Boatyard (south)
  • Garbage goes in the dark green waste container, all recycling goes in the large blue container. Compost in the brown plastic bin.
  • Please put your donated “junk” (items you no longer need but don’t want to toss) near the dumpster and not at the gate, so more people can see them.
  • Remind your guests and crew to park on the outer row near the street in General Parking. The Port will tow all vehicles that are parked in Permit Parking that don’t have a 2021 sticker.
  • Please control your dogs (by your side or on a leash at all times) and please clean up after them!
  • To avoid smash and grab car break-ins, do not leave any items visible in your car.
  • Do not allow people you don’t know through the gate (tailgaters). Have them call the Port number posted on the gate for access.  There have been prowlers on the docks and in the waterways so please lock your boat, dinghy, etc and please call the Port’s 24/7 cell phone, 206-601-4089, if you see anything/anyone suspicious.

Thank you for helping keep this a nice place to moor and live!

The Seattle Boat Show

This year the Seattle Boat Show has gone virtual, with online deals with exhibiters and a variety seminars.  When you visited shows in the past, sometimes the seminar wasn’t the day or time you were at the show.  Now you can view them all!  Keep checking back to their website to get the latest updates.

Ban on Copper Bottom Paint Postponed

The restrictions on the use of copper-based antifouling paint on recreational vessels have been delayed until January 1, 2026.

Senate Bill 6210 has just passed the House and Senate and is on the Governor’s desk to sign.  The WA. St. Dept. of Ecology has recommended delaying the antifouling paint restrictions to allow time for further study, due to concerns some non-copper alternatives might be more harmful to the environment than the copper-based paints they replace.

Seattle RV Show Feb 9-12

Why an RV post on a boat site?  Well…many systems on both RVs and Boats are very similar…galley, head, electrical, solar, etc. Most RV systems also tend to be less expensive than marine systems.

Here is an opportunity to check out the booths, layouts/systems, and get ideas of what may work on your boat.
