PORT OF TOLEDO
The Toledo Community Boathouse program provides classroom and workshop space for youth and community members to learn and get hands-on experience with boatbuilding, maintenance, sailing and seamanship. The program consists of two boathouses moored at the Port’s Marina, and is supported through generous community volunteers and grant funding.
Both boathouses were constructed by the Port of Toledo. The first boathouse was built in 2010 by Port staff with funding from the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund and the Lincoln County Economic Development Alliance. The second boathouse was completed in 2017. It was built with funding for new materials from the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund, and used repurposed materials as much as possible. The boathouse was built on surplus floats that had been donated to the Port, lumber milled from trees logged for the boatyard expansion project, metal roofing reclaimed from the Old Fire Station, and by volunteers from the Old Retired Guys Sailing Club.
