Following the Annual Wooden Boat Festival at Port Townsend, the Point Hudson Marina closed to all recreational boaters and tenants of the marina in order to begin replacement construction of the North Jetty. The project for the North Jetty is anticipated to be completed by March 15, 2023. The same schedule will be used the following year to replace the South Jetty.
The aging North and South jetties at Point Hudson have been deteriorating over the years, and a storm in 2018 severed cable ties, broke pile tops, and eroded the armor rock core. New jetty construction will consist of steel pipe piles, large armor stone, and a wide 8-foot walkway atop the south breakwater jetty when completed.
The marina has 32 slips and 800 feet of linear docks – tenants were given the option of moving their vessel to a slip at Port Townsend’s Boat Haven, or store their vessel on the hard. Visiting boaters should be prepared to anchor out, or use the City Dock or Union Wharf for short term and overnight stays; both facilities are open April through September with a self-registration payment box. Boat Haven will likely be full or have very limited guest moorage. The city encourages boaters to continue enjoying the shops and eateries at popular Port Townsend, with its historic Victorian homes, buildings, and marine services.
