State of the Moorage, 2013
Loren Beach, Moorage Chair
The Club owns a modern all-concrete-dock moorage facility with approx. 150 slips. It is easily one of the newest and nicer ones in the NW. The club dredge operates in mid winter to keep the depth at a uniform minus-six to seven, at zero on the gauge board. The dredge is operated solely by members.
Our moorage is normally full with a waiting list. I advise any prospective members that
they should expect a wait of six months to a year for a slip of their
own, depending on boat length.
Any member wanting a PDF copy of the lists (posted on
the Club's cork board in the hall way at the west end of the clubhouse)
can email me and I will send one. Moorage Rates and Rules are posted
in the club house also.
Temporary slips for those on the Waiting List are usually available, as the Club's moorage
rules permit the Club to sublet a temporarily unused slip and
credit the slip rent to the assigned member.
By May we usually start seeing openings around the moorage,
on Walks 1, 2, or 5, from which boats have gone north
for two to four months on vacation. As usual, I ask those
members planning on vacation cruises to let me know when
they are leaving and planning to return.
Anyone on the Waiting List wanting a temporary "double fill" slip should let me know. If you cannot reach me, just contact the Port Captain or Residents.
There are also limited temporary slips available during the winter, when a member's boat
is out for repair or dry storage.
