  • If the registration is still valid through June 2019 than I don’t believe this could be considered an Abandoned Vessel just because it is at Anchor. Boaters are still allowed to Anchor their vessel in many places around Puget Sound.

    • That would be true if it was tied to a private mooring buoy but it is not. It is also anchored in State Owned Aquatic Lands and is in violation of WAC 332-52-155 which only allows for 30 days in a 90 day period.

        Correct. The Anchorage Rule for Washington State is WAC 332-52-155 (1) What is the length of time that a vessel may be moored or anchored on state-owned aquatic lands? Persons shall not moor or anchor a vessel in the same area on state-owned aquatic lands for periods longer than 30 consecutive days or for more than a total of 90 days in any 365 day period. For purposes of WAC 332-52-155, “in the same area” means within a radius of five miles of any location where the vessel was previously moored or anchored. This vessel is abandoned based on RCW 79.100.010(1) definitions.

    This vessel name is not the Dire Straits. It has been painted gray and was reported again on 12/18/2018 in front of Poulbo and Port of Poulsbo.
