I checked out your blog and tried to post a comment, but it didn't work. Just FYI.

The cove at Seward park is nice. You'll be protected from the south winds there. The only catch is you might have to go around Mercer Island depending on your mast height. IIRC you have 29feet on the west side.
There have been several slips on Craigslist. Someone has a mooring on Vashon for $75.

I remember seeing the sign at the office too, but I seem to recall them being covered? or they may have covered, open and dry slips in those sizes. The marina seems a bit emptier than normal.
Edmonds is nice to sail out of, Kingston is a quick sail for lunch/dinner and back or spend the night in the marina or anchored! Free moorage for 2 hrs if dining etc there too.

Glad to have you with us.
Try calling the Port of Edmonds... They have a sign on the marina office that they have 26, 28, and 30 foot slips immediately available.
This conflicts with their website...
You can also try Everett, but the sailing is better at Edmonds.

|dylanthered||Hey, thanks for checking out the blog. The Endeavor is also on Lake Union though we REALLY would like to find a cheaper slip. My gal and I are thinking about spending the weekend on the sailboat. There's something really appealing about being anchored off somewhere on Lake Washington with the heater on, some good food, and maybe watching a movie in the cabin. Lazy sailing and vegging out somewhere other than my house.|

I took a look at your blog. Our paths have probably crossed a few times. My boat is on Lake Union, We head out to Blake Island often, and my parents live near the Brownsville marina so we head there often for boat projects.
I too have spent a lot of time learning the hard way; being under full sail, heeled over with the motor at full throttle waiting for the tides to change to slip through Agate pass was a memorable one.
Trial and error has worked pretty well so far. I just spend time going over the events and thinking about what could be done differently next time.
If you ever want to sail on the lake after work, or just grab a beer and talk sailing send me a PM.
See you around, I sail a Westerly 23, white topsides, black hull and red sails.

Our kids have a C-27 as well and they've started the learning curve. We buddy boat with them quite a bit, which is a pretty good way to pick things up. I've seen another fellow on this forum that keeps his boat in Pt. Townsend too, I think the larger marina to the south. That's a great sailboat town.
