We'll meet at my boat in the Elliott Bay Marina in dock/slip  D-54.

Meeting time is 11AM and should be back 5-ish.

The boat is a 36' Catalina moored in the Elliott Bay Marina on the " D " dock.

The dock is thru the 2nd gate from the far end of the parking lot.

Park in the " guest parking ", spaces up against the street or on the street.

The restroom is in the building at the end of the parking lot.  The same key pad code as the gate to the dock lets you into the restroom.

Bring a lunch and something to share with the crew. Adult beverages ( in moderation ) are ok.

Please confirm you are coming and any questions to me at clapprich@aol.com or text at 206-719-1257.

Thanks,  Rich Clapp, 206-719-1257,  clapprich@aol.com

  • Heavy-duty gloves (preferably leather) for line handling (fingertips cut off is OK).
  • Warm clothing head to foot (Note: The ambient temperature on the water is usually lower than on land).
