Winters at most boatyards aren't only set aside for maintenance and repairs on customers' boats. We also spend a lot of time maintaining the boatyard as well.
This year's major project at Wayfarer Marine was conducted by Prock Marine, based in Rockland. Over the past several years we've had some areas of the marina fill in with silt, sand, and mud due to storms' surge and wave action. This year we dredged out a few of our slips as well as our service dock area and dinghy dock. Prock Marine used both their excavator, which is pictured (it's the largest excavator in the state of Maine) and their clam shell crane to take care of all of our needs.
