WINDSTORM AFTERMATH: Little lost dock to watch for (update: found!)

THURSDAY: If you’re out along the shore, be on the lookout for Laurie‘s neighbor’s floating dock. She sent the request for help:

During the big windstorm two nights ago, a little floating sea-life dock broke loose and floated away. It’s approximately 8×8 and has the letters “ADM C” on it. We’ve checked up and down Beach Drive to no avail and it’s possible it headed north around Alki (based on wind direction). If anyone sees it, please call Howard at 206-579-5316 and he will come retrieve it.

SATURDAY UPDATE; See comments – it’s been found! Thanks to everyone who looked.

    wouldn’t it be a floating pier?

    Is E marginal way still closed by the south park bridge? Traffic was bad through Georgetown and the 1sr Ave bridge even midday so wondering if this was a contributing factor.

    There is the wreck of a small raft on the rocks at Emma Schmitz overview, opposite 4516 Beach Dr. . Couldn’t get down on the rocks close enough to check more than that.

      Thank you. They didn’t have a photo so I don’t have anything for comparison.

    I sure hope it turns up, the Blue Heron that frequents it, takes weather breaks in our tree.  Our house is at 5909 Atlas PL SW.

    Just noticed this dock in front of my neighbors house down on the 5000 block of Beach Drive. Just wondering if this is the dock you are looking for.

    Ahna-Thank you ! This is indeed the dock we were looking for. We have secured and towed it back down the beach for repairs. Thanks for posting this !
