Restroom Construction update

Last night the Port had a meeting at CYC to show their 60% design stage for their $8 million Restroom/parking lot construction project.  About 30 tenants and Port representatives were in attendance. Because the 2nd story addition did not make financial sense, there are going to be (2) 2600 sq foot and (1) 800 sq ft buildings.  The two larger ones will have restrooms, showers and laundry; the smaller one will have family restrooms and showers.  Geothermal and solar will provide the heat and lighting for the 2 larger buildings.  M2 and M5 will stay after construction to use as utility rooms.  M4 and M6 will be demolished. The laundry units will double from current levels. Restrooms and showers will have radiant floor heat for comfort and drying. Showers will be operated with a fob for security and to eliminate quarters.  There will be a covered bike storage areas for about 48 bikes.  Construction is expected to begin next spring (2018) and be completed by late fall.

Reaching out to help…

If any of you know of anyone who needs help.. suffering from depression, drug, or alcohol addiction or other serious mental or emotional problem, I’d like to point out some easy to access resources.

There as a weekly AA meeting right here at the marina, offering support and fellowship for those who would like to stop drinking or using. Stop by the marina conference room any Monday morning from 7 to 8 am and check it out.

The King County Crisis Line 866-4-CRISIS is a great resource if a person needs immediate help. They can help with any problem small or large.

If we see any of our neighbors suffering please reach out to them and help them find help before something serous happens.

If you’d like to talk to someone in confidence, you can feel free to contact me at 206-979-9016.

Swiftsure Race -Memorial Day Weekend

Published by under Shilshole Marina

update 5/30:  congratulations to our Shilshole boats on their performance! results

Memorial Day weekend is the Swiftsure International Yacht Race in Victoria.  This is a long-time northwest favorite with a great history!  It can be a “driftsure” or blow like stink yet everyone wants to go back the next year.  There are many boats from Shilshole that participate so be sure to wish them luck as you see them get ready to leave and welcome them back on Monday.  It can be a grueling race that tests the skill, nerves and patience of even the best.

Here are some links about the history, registered boats, and on the site you may find a race tracker link (wasn’t available at time of post), where you can follow the progress …
