winter storms from land’s steady embrace, especially if you’ve got that convenient excuse that the boat is in the yard. Win-win! To aid you in this tried and true seasonal scheme, we introduce the 2019 iteration of our annual Washington Haul Out Guide. We’ve included in each boatyard profile a series of icons to represent common services offered at each location. Also included is helpful contact information for each business and

any additional service-related information. We recommend that you call ahead or visit the website of any boatyard you plan to visit, as availability and haulout capabilities are always changing. We’re always interested in improving the accuracy of our guides, so corrections are welcome. Any suggestions or comments can be shared with us via email at editorial@nwyachting.com or mailed to our office.
