Skokomish Tribe floats the idea of a new Potlatch marina

Skokomish Indian Tribal Enterprises is developing a plan for a marina near Potlatch in southern Hood Canal and would like to know what boaters and residents think of the idea. Check out my story in today’s Kitsap Sun.

The project is undergoing a feasibility study, but it could include slips for 25 to 35 boats and various amenities including a restaurant, fuel dock, fish-cleaning station, sewage-pumpout facility and restrooms.

Ed Binder of SITE said the tribe recognizes the sensitivity of Hood Canal but hopes to work through the various issues. Water coming out of the Cushman power plant could help stir the waters and reduce environmental impacts, he said.

Boaters and area residents are encouraged to express their opinions about the project in an online survey. If the project moves forward, it would take several years before the project would be built, Binder said.
