New harbormaster named for South Whidbey Port

Patrick Boin moves up the port ladder

Patrick Boin has been promoted to harbormaster of South Whidbey Harbor at Langley following the resignation of Duncan McPhee.

Boin worked as the assistant to McPhee for almost three years, according to Stan Reeves, executive director of the Port District of South Whidbey. The port also hired Nick Halstead as the assistant harbormaster, effective March 11.

“Both men accepted the jobs as interim positions that can convert to permanent positions on Nov. 1,” Reeves said. The port may then solicit applications to competitively fill the positions or offer them to Boin and Halstead, he added.

The new harbormaster accepted the position at an annual salary of $45,760. The new assistant harbormaster accepted the position at an hourly wage of $14.75.

Port staff oversees the Langley marina’s slips, moorage reservations and offer dockside assistance as boats arrive and depart. They also maintain services, including restrooms, showers and the boat ramp.

Staff also monitors VHF radio for boat traffic.

The biggest event at the Langley marina is Dock Stock, a two-day summer festival of music that’s grown in popularity over the years, attracting boaters from around the region and others who walk and relax on the pier.

The date for this year’s Dock Stock is not yet confirmed.
