Coast Guard seeks mariner input for Pacific Seacoast study

Published by under Shilshole Marina

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Coast Guard is seeking input from mariners for a study of navigation requirements in the Pacific Seacoast System.

The Waterways Analysis and Management System (WAMS) study will review the short range Aids to Navigation (ATON) system that covers American waterways from the Canadian border to the Mexican border and around Alaska, Hawaii and the Marianas Islands.

Interested mariners and maritime stakeholders can provide input by taking the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PacSeacoastWAMS

The survey will be available until March 31, 2018.

In addition to the survey input, the system-wide study will cover international requirements, environmental concerns, user capabilities, available technology and available resources.

A White Christmas

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

A week ahead of time, the weather forecast didn’t predict a White Christmas. Instead, it would be rain and mild temperatures. That changed two days before Christmas with a cold blast from the north. On Christmas Eve day, it snowed and stuck!

With his reindeers, Santa must have plotted a course to the Marina using that snow-flake version of water. Look at how he filled my stocking!


Best of all, he brought my family together for the holidays. Thank you Santa.


(A special thanks to Lee Youngblood for the family photograph.)
