Although it was a rainy dreary day, time is running out on the last large working boatyard in the northeast — Brewer’s Yacht Haven West. We had to go walk around, take a last look, before it closes in 4 days. Talk about your end of an era… It is just shocking to us.
When looking up the name of a boat I took a picture of I found a whole thread about this “Valor” and how it was going to be repaired after storm damage. I feel compelled to contact these bloggers from 2007 and give them the sad news. They cut her open to pullout the diesel engine. She is the only ship in the yard as of October 27.
Not many places have rigging to haul the big boats – Brewer’s Yacht Haven West, Southend of Stamford, CT
All the many storage spaces with hookups are empty
Even the snack bar is a shell of its former self
Spooky with all the docks empty
Here is the Valor. They were taking the engine out of this old boat. Then I looked it up and found all sorts of interesting history. The Valor is gone.
