Maine Boatyards

Just in case I don't get things done in the boatyard I am in presently I am looking for recommendations for a new home.

We are presently in Portland, ME anyone have knowledge of a good place to store a boat over the winter and get work done east of Portland?

Thanks,

John & Cheryl

John and Cheryl,

I spent two months a couple of years ago based at Journey's End Marina in Rockland, ME. I can't say enough good about them.

JEM is a working yard, servicing both yachts and workboats. That's part of the charm. The staff is courteous and very professional, and the prices are reasonable. There's a Hamilton Marine store adjacent to the yard and Rockland is a wonderful place to be based. It's a neat little town with great restaurants, good museums, and lots of little shops. Only a short drive or sail to Camden, and lots of wonderful anchorages closeby.

The USCG cutter Abbie Burgess is based there, as is the USCG Center at Rockland. See pix at: http://gallery.wdsg.com/Maine-Trip-2004

Bill and Jef

Thanks for the info.

I will check with each and see how things work out. I still have hope for Portland simply because of ease of flight arrangements but the boat's accomodations and security come first.

Bill I have looked through your gallery before...Hope our Maine cruise is as nice as yours looks in the photos!
