CAPE GEORGE MARINE WORKS, INC.
48° North Hosts Annual
Coast Guard/Race Committees Meeting
The yearly meeting between the Coast Guard and
the Yacht Club Race Committees will be held at 6:00 PM,
Thursday, March 11, at the 48° North office, directly behind
the West Marine store at Shilshole. This is an informal
meeting that has proven to be of great benefit to both the
Coast Guard and the race committees in planning for
upcoming events and discussing any concerns.
Yacht clubs should also be receiving an email flyer
about the meeting from the Coast Guard.

line damages the bark, part girdling the tree. Trees used Seattle’s Finest.
this way typically have large scars and weeps of pitch.
Last I looked, Waggoner recommends using (already)
dead trees, deadfalls, rocks, rings, etc.
In my experience, cables, and often rocks, may not let
the line slip cleanly, though.

Good point, Allen. There usually is something, other than
a live tree, that you can put a line around. More and more of the
most popular anchorages now have a ring fastened to a rock, or

buoys for a stern line.
Being on the hard shouldn’t be that hard. Canal Boatyard is
