(LINCOLN CITY, Ore. ) - The Pacific Ocean, rivers and lakes near Lincoln City will soon be safer as the Oregon State Marine Board helped the Lincoln County Sheriff secure a new marine patrol boat.

A 22-foot, full cabin boat, manufactured by River Wild, located in Grants Pass, Oregon, will replace a 1982 Monark and a 1997 safe boat.

The safe boat’s motor, a 225 horse power Yamaha outboard, will now power the River Wild boat, with a cost savings of nearly $10,000. With the Monark trade in for $14,500, combined with $54,998 of additional funds helped purchase the River Wild boat for a total cost of $69,498.

The new patrol boat is designed for all weather conditions and is equipped with the most modern electronics, air suspension seats, diesel heater, extra-large fuel tank, spot lights, additional hull protection, and an axillary motor.

River Wild also gave the Marine Board a lifetime warranty on the hull. The new patrol boat will be able to assist boaters in need in most ocean conditions and severe weather.

The average age of the current Marine Board boat fleet statewide is 15 years. The Marine Board developed a procurement and retention schedule similar those used for law enforcement vehicles and is retiring older boats with newer models that require less fuel and maintenance.
