On Jan. 31, the purchase of the Sea Pier at 87 Atlantic Avenue in Boothbay Harbor was completed and the property was donated to the Boothbay Region Maritime Foundation, BRMF.
The Foundation is grateful for the generosity of the donors and the dedication that the previous owners, Douglas and Becky Carter, have shown to the fishermen of our region. The property will continue to run as a lobster buying station and the Foundation plans to look towards the future with innovative ways to support commercial fishing and aquaculture in the region. Plans are being made for repairs to the property and to restore the pier to its former size.
Donations towards this end can be made to the Boothbay Region Maritime Foundation, P.O. Box 285, Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538. For more information email BRMF at BRMaritimeFoundation@gmail.com
