    Svendsen's Boatworks To Close 11/1/17

    The word on the docks is that the boatyard will close November 1st. Employees will move to other Bay Ship facilities. Retail and wholesale operations apparently unaffected at this time.

    They already forced DOER to relocate.

    Doer leaves 10/1/17. Svendsen's Boatworks leaves 11/1/17. All the marine business "anchors" are gone. Exactly what developer Bill Poland wanted. Now the argument can't be made that the complex should remain primarily for marine use.

    Updated timeline: Yard closes at year end, wholesale moves to Bay Ship in March.

    I'll refrain from writing out my thoughts, as they'd get me on the FBI watch list.
