Why Join The Tacoma Power Squadron?
"Jackie and I bought our first boat at Olympic Boat in Fife, where the Tacoma Power Squadron had a display of boating information and classes available to the public. Jackie immediately stated "if we're buying that boat, we're both taking classes. Thirteen years later, we're still learning and enjoying every part of TPS membership, as well as our second boat "ClasSeaLass"."

"I couldn't remember which slip was mine, but knew it was inside kind of toward the center. I came in, turned the boat into the slip and watched as the bow pulpit bumped into one of the roof's upright supports, neatly tearing it away from the base. Expecting the roof to collapse on top of the boat, my son, and me, all I could think of was the damage I was about to do to the other boats moored at the dock." Read the full story
