Working with Boaters and Marine Trades for Cleaner Washington Water

Come find the Clean Boating Foundation booth at the Seattle Boat Show

You love that jingle or you love to hate that jingle. Regardless, it’s “the Boat Show, the Boat Show, the big Seattle Boat Show” time. The Seattle Boat Show starts on January 27 and runs through Saturday, February 4. Stop by our booth (307 in the East Hall) and say hi to your trusty olde staff and volunteers. Not only will you find the latest info on non-copper paint, but also we want to make sure you know about the harmful critters out there called zebra and quagga mussels.

Speaking of non-copper paint, the first date* will be here before we know it so why not make the change to non-copper paint now? Many of the alternatives will be at the show (like Sea Hawk (East Hall 607), Pettit (Concourse 2200) and Interlux/Awlgrip (East Hall 717), but stop by our booth first and we can point you in the right direction. Hope to see you there! 

*What are those dates for the non-copper paint law in Washington state? If you purchase a new recreational boat up to 65-feet, that boat cannot have paint on it’s hull when it arrives in our state after January 1, 2018. The second key date is January 1, 2020. That’s the date when you cannot buy or apply copper bottom paint onto your recreational boat up to 65-feet. These are Washington state laws.
