ILWACO — The Port of Ilwaco continues to improve facilities at its popular self-service boatyard, with contractors demolishing part of an antiquated workshop last week.

Ilwaco is home to one of the few facilities in the region where boat owners can hoist vessels out of the water and then work on them either indoors or outside, depending on their specific requirements. The facilities are designed to contain and capture potential pollution from boat paint and other substances.

The old workshop nearest the mooring basin was added to over the decades, and has been the target of occasional beautification efforts, but last week’s partial demolition was the biggest project involving it since at least the 1980s.
