Toledo Community Boathouse - Scroll Down for Activities

TheToledo Youth Boating Club boathouse provides classroom and workshop space for local youth to learn about and get hands-on experience with boatbuilding, maintenance, sailing and seamanship.

The floating boathouse is built on a section of dock previously purchased by the Port and is moored at the Port of Toledo docks on Depot Slough.  The Port owns several small boats that are utilized for the program, most of which have been donated.  “The nice thing is, is that the kids don’t have to own their own boats in order to participate in this program” said Port Commission President Chuck Gerttula.

Gerttula notes, “We thank the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians and the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners for helping us bring this project to fruition.”

2011 Float and Feast

Andrew Linn's report on the Float and Feast

An open invitation was made to everyone brave enough to make a November float the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The weather was incredible, and there were 17 boats that made the Float from Cannon Quarry back to the Toledo Boathouse.
