Point Hudson Marina opening ahead of schedule

PORT TOWNSEND — Point Hudson Marina and RV Park will re-open more than a month ahead of schedule on Wednesday after they have been closed since September to accommodate rebuilding the north jetty.

The only exceptions are six 70-foot floats in the marina and several RV spots where contractor Orion Marine Group has a staging area and its on-site offices.

The floats and RV space will become available March 1, the date on which the re-opening was originally planned.

That could change, however, if Orion finishes its work early, said Matt Klontz, capital projects director and Port of Port Townsend engineer.

“This season we’re fortunate, we had such great weather at the start of the construction season,” Klontz said. “That really allowed them to get a good a good start on the project.”

The marina will close again after the Wooden Boat Festival ends Sept. 10, when rebuilding the south jetty will start with a scheduled re-opening in March.

The port has said completing that project within the same time frame as the north jetty will be more challenging because the south jetty is larger and more exposed to the elements.

Brock Tejeda, a high school senior, fits together his carefully crafted pieces of wood to make a step stool just like the larger finished sample on the left. Port Angeles High School hosted a Skills USA Olympic Regional contest in the woodshop at the school on Saturday. The contest involved students making in eight hours from precise directions a small step stool using their skills and the shop’s many tools and machines. Joe Shideler is the woodshop teacher, but retired woodshop teacher Tim Branham was the enabler who brought the contest back to the school after a four-year COVID absence. There were five high school contestants including one girl. Skills USA sponsors over 50 skills across the country. PAHS participated in the carpentry and precision machinery areas.
