Lake Union House Boats and Boat Traffic

House Boats under University Bridge

The shores of Lake Union and Portage Bay are popular spots/locations for house boats.  There are enough located in the area to support local businesses that cater to the specific needs that living on the water may require. Not long ago I personally was witness to a house boat in Portage Bay that was undergoing construction/remodeling, and floating crane was required and moved into work on the house.  Along with the house boats located on the lake, there are multiple days throughout the year where boat traffic itself is so high that only patches of water can be seen. With this amount of activity and people living around the lake, we must realize the dramatic impact that we have on the ecosystem outside our traditional harmful practices such as the automobile, and littering
