Hat’s off to our harbormaster

It’s not often that I feel compelled to write a letter of appreciation to someone in the public sector, but I am going to make an exception.

I have either lived or made my living down at the waterfront and, in particular, at the Port of Friday Harbor for the last seven years. In that time, I have had the great pleasure of working with and around the best harbormaster I have ever seen: Tami Hayes!

Tami has the great ability to be direct, no B.S. and personable all at the same time You always know where you stand and what is expected and she always has a smile and a great attitude no matter what the situation.

I have worked and lived in several marinas over the years and want to say that this is best-run, tenant-friendly one of them all.

We are leaving the island and I hope that the next harbormaster that I deal with will be half the person she is.
