Where boats go to die





The same day that we dropped off our fire extinguishers, we visited Mass Marine Parts, a division of Continental Marine Services in Quincy, MA. This place is a graveyard for boats. According to John, the young man in the yard, they process about a hundred boats a year. He was a blur of energy as he jauntily took us from one part of the yard to another, helping us to locate an opening port for our galley. We ended up getting a Paloma tankless water heater and a teak handrail for $40, but hope to come back later in the season to pick up some more bargains.
