It’s Your Liveaboard Community-get involved!

Published by at 9:00 am under Liveaboard Topics,Shilshole Marina

Shilshole Marina has 350 authorized liveaboard boats that contain 700+ individuals, making it one of the largest liveaboard communities on the West Coast!  It is a unique and treasured way of life, but there are government agencies looking to regulate how we use our recreational boats and, over the years, there have been many challenges to our liveaboard lifestyle.

Your Shilshole Liveaboard Assoc (SLA) represents these liveaboards here at Shilshole.  We are liaisons between the Port of Seattle/Shilshole Marina and the liveaboards in the marina.  Our goal is to have clear and consistent communication with the Port; to represent the liveaboards at Port meetings; to organize activities and events that enhance the liveaboard family lifestyle; and to negotiate any agreements that the Port/Marina propose.

There are several ways to get involved….

  1. consider joining the board and being part of the discussion/process
  2. attend the Ballard District Council Meetings and add your voice (the SLA holds a permanent seat on our Ballard Council)
  3. participate in the “Deck Your Hulls” and “Marina Days” events
  4. attend the Dock Captain/Port quarterly meetings (all tenants are always welcome). Next one is Sept 10, 6pm, at CYC clubhouse V-dock
  5. attend the Marina Restroom/Laundry/Parking/Bus update meetings-watch for notices on the gates and on this site
  6. and…simply read/post/comment on this blog on a regular basis

thanks for giving it some thought…
