Toledo Boatyard wins it big in Salem again – $2 Million grant for new boatworks building

Toledo boat lift like this one is getting closer to being fully assembled.  Will soon be hauling boats out and putting them in an air-tight enclosed work area just approved for the Port of Toledo.

A new Toledo boat lift like this one is getting closer to being fully assembled at the port. It will soon be hauling boats out of the water and putting them in an air-tight and leak-proof enclosed work building just approved for the Port of Toledo.

Toledo seems to be on a true lucky streak – first winning some big bucks from the state for a new 600+ ton boat lift, and now on Friday nailing it for another $2 million from the economic development arm of ODOT – Oregon Connect.

The grant award means that when the big lift is finally fully assembled, it will be picking up big boats from the slough and placing them inside a huge climate controlled work building. Once inside it won’t matter what the weather is outside. They’ll be able to paint, weld, refabricate materials, just about anything you can do on a sunny day – even in January. The building will be 150 feet long, 75 feet wide and 90 feet tall – totally air and water tight – so ZERO emissions to the outside. Every puff of contaminated air and every “slight” leak of anything will be captured and processed.

Port of Toledo Manager Bud Shoemake says the phone has been ringing from skippers wanting to get their vessels in for all kinds of work.

And of course the new improvements means a lot of new family wage jobs – probably the biggest reason the Connect Oregon reviewers gave their blessing AGAIN to Bud Shoemake and his team down there on the slough in Toldeo. They just keep making it happen.
