The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding is constructing a 25′ zero-emission pump out boat that will provide free services in Port Ludlow Bay. This pilot project features electric and solar technology and a corrosion prevention system keeping heavy metals out of the water.

The project came together through a collaboration with local marine businesses, private donors, and state agencies aligned around a common goal of promoting environmental stewardship – from its zero-emission propulsion system to its role in keeping waterways clean of wastewater. Clean Bay has already been recognized by the state’s Maritime Blue Initiative for modeling effective use of zero-emissions systems for workboats.
