Washington Sea Grant Pumpout survey

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

In partnership with the Washington State Parks Clean Vessel Act program, Washington Sea Grant manages the popular Pumpout Washington program to increase awareness and use of marine sewage pumpout stations in Washington.

When completing the survey, think about your boating away from Shilshole…like in South Sound, Blake Island, Bainbridge Island, Poulsbo, San Juans.

Here’s an opportunity to help them…. Pumpout Survey

Winter Storm Prep

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

Though its been a mild winter, temperature-wise, we have had a series of storms that have brought some steady strong winds, which play havoc on our docklines, fenders, tarps and canvas.  Be sure to check your boat out regularly and secure anything that is loose or chafing.  Check on your neighbor’s boats and call the marina 24/7 with any concerns (206-601-4089).

The 5 hour power outage last Friday was not storm related but caught everyone off guard.  Not a big deal for us boaters that live off 12 volts, but what if it lasts awhile?  Do you have gas for your generator? Do you have a 12 volt plug/charger for your phone, computer, handheld VHF?  Enough food for your family and pets? Are your diesel tanks and water tanks topped off? February is usually our coldest month, so be prepared for freezing temps.

In any marina emergency or situation, tune into VHF channel 71 to hear any updates from the Port or your neighbors.

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
