Opening Day at Montlake Cut-May 6th

Published by under Shilshole Neighbors

The Seattle Yacht Club has put on an Opening Day of Boating Season Parade since 1920.  It’s a great event to take the family to and sit along the Montlake Cut or, take your boat in and tie to the log boom on the north side or anchor in the south-side viewing area!  In the morning are the Windermere Cup crew races.  The boat parade is from noon to 3.  Since the Cut is closed Sat. til after the parade, most boaters arrive Thur or Fri to get a spot and stay til Sunday to come home. It’s quite a show at the locks as they all lock through trying to leave the lake Sat eve or Sunday!

Earth Day -April 22nd

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated worldwide on April 22, to demonstrate support for environmental protection.  As boaters, with our close relationship to the water and its environs, this a great opportunity to review our boating habits and work with our neighbors to ensure that we all can enjoy cleaner water and air!

Some things to consider:

  • Keep your boat engine tuned up and operating properly to reduce smoke and oil discharge
  • Use environmentally safe soaps for cleaning the decks
  • Use tarps and vacuums to keep boat maintenance debris out of the water
  • Switch from zinc to aluminum anodes for your prop shaft/hull
  • Report all diesel spills immediately to the office so they can quickly be contained
  • Use the marina provided Haz Mat containers for old oil, gas, batteries, and coolant disposal
  • Keep your car tuned up and fix oil leaks so they don’t make their way from the parking lot to the marina waters
