The Port of Clarkston operates one of the largest cranes on a navigable river east of Portland. The crane is capable of moving logs, containers, and other cargo. As a far inland seaport, many large yachts are sent up the river from Portland and loaded on trucks bound for Texas, Indiana, and other inland states. Boats have been moved that are up to 78 feet in length and weigh more than 90,000 pounds.
The 140-ton Lima crane sits dockside at the Port of Clarkston waiting to fill barges, put a 70-foot yacht on a truck for a cross-country trip to Florida, or ship wood products down river to coastal communities.
