38’ Slip Available at North Leschi 

The North Leschi Marina currently has two 38' slips available for lease. We wanted to offer these up to our existing customers before we start calling folks on the waitlist. This is an excellent opportunity for those who have been thinking about upgrading to a larger boat. These slips are highly sought after, so don't wait too long to take advantage of this opportunity. Bigger boat = Bigger Fun! 

We also have two new 70' slips available at Lakewood. If you have the boat to fill these slips let us know. If you know of someone who might, send us a tip - there could be a discounted month of moorage in it for you!

When it comes to boating safety, it's important to remember that it's not just about what happens on the water. The dock can also pose its own set of risks, and it's important to be aware of them to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. One key area of concern on the dock is the power cords that connect your boat to shore power. Before plugging in, it's important to check your power cords for any signs of damage. Frayed or cracked cords can pose a fire hazard, so it's important to replace them immediately if you notice any issues. 

Another important safety tip is to always replace any damaged lines on your boat. Worn or frayed lines can snap or break, which can cause damage to your boat. Regularly come down to the marina and inspect your lines for any signs of wear and replace them as needed. In addition to these specific tips, it's also important to be mindful of your surroundings on the dock. Watch your step, especially when the dock is wet or slippery. 

By following these safety tips and taking a proactive approach to dock safety, you can help ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for yourself and others. Remember to always prioritize safety, both on the water and on the dock. 

North and South Leschi Marinas are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all boaters. To further enhance safety measures, the marinas will be adding more cameras to the area. This will help deter any potential criminal activity and provide valuable evidence in the event of an incident. However, it's important to remember that safety is a shared responsibility. While the marinas will be increasing surveillance, boaters can also do their part to ensure a safe environment. 

Always keep the gate closed and never let anyone in or share the codes. This helps maintain the integrity of the marina and keeps unwanted visitors out. In addition to these measures, it's important to report any suspicious activity to marina staff or the Seattle Police. By working together, we can help keep the marinas safe and secure for everyone. 


My power cord keeps getting pulled out of the Pedestal. How can I prevent this from happening? - Robert 

Great question Robert. I’ve taken a picture of one of our Peds and it shows you how to correctly connect your shore power. Run the power cord through one of the cradles, where it takes up most the downward pressure. Hope this helps.
Remember to make sure your boat is hanging on by a line and not your power cord.

Note: you do not need to pull this loop tight, the motion of your boat will naturally do this for you.

We are excited to announce the “Spring into Boating” party to be held at Leschi Center in April. We wanted to reconnect with our amazing boaters after the winter hibernation. More importantly, to showcase the CYC boat races that occur at the Marinas. Its an exciting way to engage with these clubs. We will be serving burgers and hot dogs from 6-8pm. We will have a solid date in the next newsletter. 


Get ready for the newest additions to our marina!

Zane has been hard at work building large aluminum storage racks for our kayakers and paddleboarders. As these get installed around Leschi and Lakewood we will not only increase our capacity for these boats but also clean up space for more small sailboats and dinghies.

If you or your friends are interested in storing a kayak, paddleboard, or other small watercraft on a rack now is the time to let us know!

The Leschi LakeCenter buildings will be getting renovated siding and windows this year. We are told the project may take up space in the parking areas adjacent to our Leschi Center Marina, but shouldn't affect our tenants. We will do our best to keep you updated as the LakeCenter management plans this project.

  • Aft - Towards the back/stern of the boat. 
  • Beam - Widest part of the boat. 
  • Bow - The front of the vessel. 
  • Bitter End - The last part of the rope or chain. 
  • Come To -  Point up closer to the wind. 


Jan Munger is one of three forest stewards for Frink Park. She is working on the portion of Frink Park that runs from the very east end of Yesler down to Leschi Park. She has scheduled monthly work parties for 2023; check the Leschi News calendar for specific dates. The March work group will meet March 25. “We will meet at the end of Yesler and work from 10am to 12pm. Participants should bring a water bottle and dress for the elements. We will provide gloves and tools. There was a lot of restoration work done in this portion of the park several years ago, but it needs more tending to beat back the English ivy, morning glory and Himalayan blackberry so the native plants can thrive. Looking forward to meeting more neighbors and saving our local plants this year!”
