New Boat Lift at Seaview

Published by under Shilshole Marina

This week you may have noticed the 4 shipping containers in the boatyard.  Seaview had a new 80 ton crane delivered from Italy (the old Travel Lift is 50t).  This will allow larger boats to be serviced in the yard.  Check out the article in Northwest Yachting.

Bubbles

Published by under Shilshole Neighbors

As I came home to Shilshole today, the sun broke out of the clouds.

I stopped at Golden Gardens for a walk. By the bath-house,  I saw a man standing in front of a 5 gallon bucket.  I heard him tell a passer-by a recipe. The ingredients of the recipe were the following.

  1. 6 cups water.
  2. 1/2 cup blue Dawn dish detergent.
  3. 1/2 cup corn starch.
  4. 1 tbsp. baking powder.
  5. 1 tbsp. glycerin.

After telling the recipe, I watched the man dipped two sticks into the 5 gallon bucket.  He  produced sheer delight to the children around him. (Click on the link below to download and view the video.)

Halloween

What a treat Halloween was this year!

It was a beautiful evening. 

Around 6 pm, Shilshole’s kids gathered at the Harbor Master’s office.

As the sun set, they went from dock to dock.

 

Their costumes were adorable and their energy was sweet. Thanks kids for all the fun!

Winter Storm Season Prep…

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

Don’t forget to…

  • Secure your halyards away from your mast to prevent slapping in the wind.
  • Remove flags
  • Put out extra dock lines and fenders.
  • Secure tarps, sail covers and roller furling.
  • Securely stow: gear on your boat, steps, items behind your dock box, and bail your dinghy!
  • Make sure your power cord has slack in it and that it is not hanging in the water!
  • Water lines may freeze or be shut off…take appropriate action (top off tanks, disconnect hoses, etc.)
  • Contact the Marina staff right away if you see anything of concern (ie: loose sails, frayed dock lines, continuous bilge pump running and any diesel/oil spills).

Thanks for being a good neighbor…

Instead of candles, there are LED candle lights available.
