Parking, Hoists, and Moorage
The North Parking lot adjacent to the Shilshole Bay Marina dry storage area may be used for trailer and dry-sailed boat storage. Please avoid leaving parked vehicles in the North Parking lot. This maximizes space for boat rigging and trailer storage.
Wet moorage is complimentary to POD participants on a first come first serve basis from Friday 2pm to Sunday 10pm within the horseshoe between the north side of W dock and the south side of X dock. See map. The north side of X dock is not included in complimentary moorage.
Rafting is permitted and encouraged between W and X docks but not on the north side of X dock. Please do not block the hoists. Please raft up to other POD competitors to conserve space. It works particularly well if boats in the same fleet raft together.
