2014 Parking Permits

We would like to remind marina customers and their guests that 2014 Parking Permits are required for all permit parking areas. 2014 Parking Permits will be available for pick-up in the marina office starting Monday, December 16, 2013. 2013 parking permits will only be valid until Monday, February 3, 2014, after which all vehicles in permit parking will be required to display the 2014 permit.

The Permit Parking areas will be strictly enforced. If you or your guests are parked in a permit parking area without a clearly visible 2014 Shilshole Bay Marina Parking Permit, your vehicle will be towed at your expense. Vehicles with 2013 Parking Permits will also be towed.

Please contact marina staff at 206-787-3006 with any questions regarding parking or stop by the marina office to obtain your 2014 Parking Permit. Click here for more information..




Message from the Liveaboard President 

I feel our message is simple--

We serve as a conduit for sharing experience, education, and information among people living aboard their recreational boats and their larger community.The Shilshole Liveaboard Association provides guidance, references and support for those boaters who live (or want to live) aboard their boat.

Some of us may have sailed to other countries, or around the world, and some of us were born here in the Puget Sound area and have never left. 

We may all be very unique in our make up and life experiences, yet we are all so very much alike in that we have boats and we enjoy boating. 

Many of us work, pay taxes and vote. Some of us are professionals, some of us laborers and some are retired but all-in-all we are very much alike with similar needs, wants and desires.

One of those is to connect with other people like ourselves: people we enjoy spending time with, sharing parts of our lives and doing something in common like boating.

If you live aboard your boat, or think you may want to in the future, please get involved with your Shilshole Liveaboard Association.
