Damn shame... but unfortunately gentrification is killing the waterfronts in a lot of places, and suburban sprawl is taking its toll too.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I share your pain. I grew up there, and almost lived at Graves boatyard down the street, where my dad worked.

Across from Maddie's (and the sign never used to say "Maddie's", just an oar that said "Sail Loft"). But everyone knew.

Across the street used to be the the King's Rook, an old beatnik-type coffee house. The two crowds didn't mix all that much...

But I did. Good memories of both places, now both gone.

Maybe there's hope yet. From the hometown newspaper on-line:

Hope it works.

Let's hope so.

No finer day than this: Sail into Marblehead with out-of-town friends and visit Abbott Hall to see The Spirit of '76. Make it a surprise. Then a walking tour of the town, after which you 'discover' the Sail Loft. Settle in. No one ever wants to leave, and they will still be talking fondly about that day twenty years later.
