Looking for Examples of Good Boathouse Design in Northwest for Multiple Use

 I am looking for examples of rowing, dragon boating, outrigger, and racing
kayaks sharing one facility.  Is there one in Canada or NW United States?  I
am looking for the positive and negatives of a shared facility.

There are three excellent facilities located on Lake Union in Seattle WA.  They
are:

Lake Washington Rowing
Lake Union Rowing ( a floating boathouse)
Pocock Center

All are fairly new, one has a tank (lake Union Rowing), all have meeting/banquet
facilities and at least limited erg/workout areas.

oops, i forgot to mention none share space with any other boats, but are nice
examples of facilities.  There is a City of Seattle boathouse used for multiple
purposes & located on Lake Washington .

Check out Gorge Rowing Centre in Victoria as well -- run by Foundation 2000
Plus.  It has two or three dragon boats, hosted racing kayaks last season (a
couple of these kayakers recently won medals in their world championships),
there is now an outrigger there, and then of course a very active rowing
club.

Oaks park in Portland, OR, has both Rowing and Kayak storage; as far as
I've observed and heard reported on it's always worked fine.  Mostly
people are pleasent to eachother...some competitive attitudes, though!
The way it works there, the Kayak rack is in the front of one of the
bays, and the back of that bay on the side the rack is on (convolutedly
stated) is a single storage area, while most of the rest of the two bays
are set aside for 8/4/2's.

You can delete Lake Washington Rowing club... it has been rumored they are
under investigation seems they are "missing money" from their treasury....
