• Boaters told to find new dock after Charlestown marina shuts down


    CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A shipyard in Charlestown is shutting down during the height of boating season.

    The Charlestown Patch reports Shipyard Quarters Marina in the Charlestown Navy Yard gave the owners of boats docked at the marina two days notice to find another place to dock.
    A notice posted Tuesday said all boats docked at piers 6 and 8 must be moved by Thursday.

    The letter cited circumstances beyond marina administrators' control for being "temporarily unable to offer docking services to the public."

    The closing comes as attorneys representing the marina and owner Martin Oliner are expected in court for a hearing regarding a preliminary injunction calling for an engineer to review the state of piers 6 and 8 and make repairs.
