Thanks to volunteer help and staff from Port of Newport, Port of Toledo, and Englund Marine the seven ton prop from the old concrete hulled "C.W. Pasley" was relocated from Port of Newport to the Port of Toledo. At the Port of Toledo it will fitted with an engineered mounting system, cleaned up, and sealed. It will then return to Newport later this year and installed at the site of the Smuggler's Cove Waterwheel, on Bay Blvd., just below the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center. The prop will be the centerpiece of this streetscape/signage project. A big thanks to all that help moved this incredible heavy piece of history.
