For the benefit of all slipholders, a copy of the Wharf developer's transition plans with graphic depictions of the Phase II, PUD plan is now in the laundry room. Please feel free to look at but leave the books there for other slipholders to also be able to review. This is similar to what can be found on the Wharf website, but may be easier for some to access.

DC's 1st-Ever Boat Home Tour a Huge Success!
We raised approximately $4,000 that will be split between the Alice Ferguson Foundation and Earth Conservation Corps. You helped us celebrate Live-Aboard Boater Day 2011 in style, contribute to cleaner DC waterfronts, and empower local at-risk youth with leadership and job skills.
If you attended the tour, we'd love to hear your feedback. Please share your comments on this post in terms of what went well and what you think could be improved for next year. How was the check-in process? Was it easy to find your way around the marina? Did you have a favorite boat? How can we make the tour better?
