I thought the Greenport Boat Yard would soon be a thing of the past. I'd seen the same boats racked up into the air off their keels for years now... rust everywhere. The salt water and salty air hastens the demise of anything it touches requiring constant vigilance of all things metal. The corrugated sheet metal buildings have a uniform patina. The old steel I-Beams that formed the chassis of the original boat cradle turned the shore stones rust colored over the years.
I wasn't prepared to see new heavy-duty track emerging from the sea where the old railroad tracks had been along with a bigger new ship's cradle. It looks as though they can pull much larger boats, 60 or more feet long, out of the sea and into dry dock for repairs to the hulls, keels, rudders and drive shafts.
