Last weekend, construction crews ushered in a new float and a new era for the West Seattle Water Taxi.
Our previous float was unstable, listing to one side, likely caused by water retention from failing pile guide mounting bolts.
Our new float features a new design from the manufacturer with integrated pile guides which should better handle the weather and wave action and minimize maintenance. The new float has a life expectancy of 25 years.
Seacrest Dock also received a new, wider passenger ramp.
We’re pleased that these new additions will increase safety and ease for West Seattle passengers before or after they set sail.
