Parking lot disruption

Beginning next week, the Port will be painting/striping the section of parking lot just south of the admin building and north of the new M3 restroom, and they have put up signage to be out by Sunday the 16th.   This means all those cars from that area will likely be parking to the south (closer to the old M2 restroom and in front of E/D docks), making available parking very scarce.

Make sure your 2021 parking sticker is in your window as the Port will be ticketing and may tow any improperly parked vehicles.  Any concerns should be directed to the Marina’s 24/7 cell phone 206-601-4089.

As liveaboards, the sea is our backyard, and just like homeowners would not “trash” their own backyard, nor should we. Most boaters and liveaboards understand this, but there are always ways to improve your footprint (both afloat or ashore).

Are you or a neighbor headed to Alaska this summer?

With Canada still closed (and most likely will be the rest of the summer), those looking to cruise to Alaska have questions about transiting through Canada.  Though the rules that govern their Covid restrictions (stops/fuel, food/rest) are strict (and confusing), it can be done.  Just do your homework.  Here is a graphic that shows the procedures…
