As of June 1st we are ready to welcome boaters from out of state!

As the State of RI enters Phase II of reopening among COVID 19, the restrictions on travel will be loosened. This means that the previously required quarantine of 14 days for all out of state travelers will be lifted. This is great news for all of us here who are looking forward to seeing our returning customers! Contact us for more information.
