Project Description: An improved vessel facility is necessary to provide Tribal members with space to begin vessel repair and service businesses to serve the local fleet and transient vessels traveling through the area. The local vessel owners currently travel to Homer, a 400-mile journey through the Shelikof Strait that often has very inclement weather and is downright dangerous during the stormy times of the year, in the early spring and late fall to have repairs and services on their vessels. The cost of vessel fuel is well over well over $5 per gallon, which costs about $2,400 for 400 gallons of diesel for the run to Homer and back to Perryville. Marine Service Facility will improve the transportation needs for the Tribe and assist in developing an economic driver for the Tribe.
