Fisheries Supply Swap Meet

Now is the time to clean out your storage locker, your bilge, and your van and get those items down to the Fisheries Supply Swap Meet!  Get there early to get a parking/display spot.  You may also find the one thing you need (or don’t need but want) to bring home to the boat.  Get details here…

Have you had a Vessel Safety Check?

Published by under Boat Projects,Cruising

It will…

  • Give you peace of mind, knowing you have working equipment.
  • Help you avoid substantial safety standard equipment-related fines if you are boarded by law enforcement.
  • Potentially lower your vessel insurance rates. Check with your agent.

The US Coast Guard Auxiliary offers free boat inspections.  Spring is a good time to review the checklist and then schedule an inspection, before they get busy…. and it may help make any Coast Guard boarding this summer go smoother!

Check out their website for more info…

SWAP MEET this weekend!


April 9, 2022

A maritime flea market, full of boating goods, old parts, and new parts, outboards, buoys, dock line, coolers, heaters, chain, clothing, and so much more. Die-hard bargain boaters have been known to arrive the night before to stake out a good parking spot, although sellers are not allowed to use the lower tier of the upper parking lot (closest to the store entrance).

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!
