Kvichak Marine Industries, of Seattle, Wash. was a recipient of an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) small shipyard grant awarded in August 2009. The grant funded much of the major equipment associated with the Company’s new metal processing facility, Flashmark Tech, which opened earlier this year. Another benefit of this grant is a new crane for their headquarters in Seattle, Wash. The crane is made by North Pacific Crane with a capacity of 35,000 pounds. The boom length is 31 ft with a pedestal height of 15 ft. The new crane is located at their bulkhead along the Lake Washington ship canal and will provide Kvichak with the capability of launching and lifting boats from the water at their bulkhead. This will lower the costs of production, expedite sea trial processes and open up their business to repair work that had not been possible before.
