Post-hurricane repairs may buoy Maine's boatbuilding industry - Press Herald

It will be over the course of a couple years to get those repaired,” said Nicole Jacques, marketing director for Maine Built Boats, a trade group. Maine’s boatbuilding industry could get a spike in business as boat owners in Florida and the Caribbean repair and replace vessels lost and damaged in back-to-back hurricanes within the past month. Surveyors are sorting through piles of damaged boats to assess the full cost of hurricanes Irma and Maria, and it could take months to get a full account of the damage. Any repair work destined for Maine boatyards could be more than six months away, but some in the industry predict hurricane-damaged fleets will buoy the state’s boatyards into the future. Source:
