New buoy installation in Eagle Harbor to begin soon

Buoy Layout Design

The City is anticipating that a contractor will begin the installation of new buoys in the Dave Ullin Open Water Marina (DUWOM) in Eagle Harbor on Monday, Oct. 21.

During the project, there will be days with little or no activity on the water, as the contractor works with subcontractors to assemble materials. The project completion is expected around Friday, Nov. 15.

During construction, liveaboard tenants of the DUOWM will be temporarily relocated to the City dock beginning Saturday, Oct. 19. There will still be space for guest moorage at the City dock.


Background

The DUOWM includes approximately 600,000 square feet of moorage, just south of the City dock and east of the Harbour Public House. In 2018, the City Council voted to provide funding to expand the number of residential moorage sites in the DUOWM from 11 to 16, as allowed under the terms of the City’s lease with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

The new moorage layout for the DUOWM will accommodate four 60-foot boats, four 50-foot boats, four 40-foot boats, and four 30-foot boats and increases the width of the navigation fairway south of the marina area. See the project layout design here

The layout decision was approved after months of discussion at City Council meetings to determine the best way to address the needs of both the liveaboard community and recreational users.

The lease area is known as the Dave Ullin Open Water Marina in honor of a beloved resident of Eagle Harbor who died in 2017. The City accepts liveaboard moorage applications for the DUOWM on an annual basis and maintains a waitlist. To learn about the process, please visit the DUOWM webpage.
