Court says boat can auctioned for delinquent moorage fees

A county court judge ruled that the Port of Poulsbo in Washington can auction a boat owner’s boat and boathouse, moored at the marina, to recoup unpaid moorage fees.

The case is significant because it’s the first legal challenge to how the port deals with boat owners who are delinquent on their moorage payments.

Moorage payments are due on the first of the month and are considered late on the 11th. They are considered “delinquent” if 30 days late.
