Default North Water Marine

The answering machine says "formerly Thurston's Marina". That makes a trifecta.......Winni Marine, Flightcraft, now North Water Marine a complete Weirs rollover.

There were rumors circulating for much of the last year that they were selling.

When my parents first came to the lake in 1973, they bought their first boat from Don Thurston, Sr, ( a 1974 Wellcraft ). They were one of Thurston's early customers, (Thurstons bought the marina in 1972, I think?). The Thurston "kids" who now run, (ran?), the place are now in their 60's and 70's, so perhaps time to cash in and check out....??

Thurstons is out with North Water Marine in its place (owned by ????)

North Water Marine was registered with the State in March as an LLC by someone in Wolfeboro named Robert Conrad.

Not as recent or in the Weirs. But also Goodhue taking over Shep Browns.

As I tell my wife, I am only 29. Of course, I just celebrated the 30th anniversary of turning 29, but still....

As a Thurston's Marina Evinrude outboard dealer for the last 49-years, and with Evinrude/Johnson voluntarily discontinuing outboards in June, 2020, what will the new North Water Marine be doing for outboard motors?

North Water Marine will be row, row, row, rowing their boats, new and used with all wood oars and paddles in different lengths made by www.cavinesspaddles.net and http://www.norquayco.com/collections...-canoe-paddles.

Say good-bye to outboards , and hellooooo to oars and paddles at North Water Marine! .... ..... and be on the look-out for rowers, rowing up and down the Weirs Channel who face backward while they row forward.

The star boat for their 2021 rental fleet is predicted to be a 20' pontoon powered by four rowers using eight oars ...... all together now ...... row-row-row the pontoon ...... down the channel from North Water Marine! ....... ugh-ugh-ugh ..... !
..............

Weirs Bridge Marina ....... what's the better name for this new marina business? ...... North Water Marine or Weirs Bridge Marina ...... if it was up to me I would definitely go with Weirs Bridge Marina ...... that new name, North Water Marine has LESS going for it compared to Weirs Bridge Marina .... for a name ...... don't you think! ..... North Water Marine is somewhat meaningless ...... while Weirs Bridge Marina has location and name recognition identity.
