Dear Friends,

Happy New Year. It is with bitter sweet feelings that we write this letter to you. As many of you know, the Boatyard has been for sale since last summer. We are pleased to announce that Paul Belesca and Scott Searway have purchased the Boatyard. It was always our intention to assure whoever purchased it would continue the tradition of having a boatyard here on Chebeague. Paul and Scott are dedicated to preserving a working boatyard for all those who have enjoyed its use throughout the years.

For the past 45 years the Boatyard has been owned and operated by the Brewer family. This was possible because of people like you. We thank you for your support and friendship throughout the years. Though we will no longer be at the Boatyard, we look forward to seeing you all around the Island.

As of January 5, 2006 the Boatyard will officially change hands to Paul and Scott. They will be sending a welcome letter out soon.


Hartley and Dianne
