A marina warehouse morphs into a Newburyport colonial home
Once, there was a neglected marina on the Merrimack River in Newburyport, Massachusetts, with dozens of abandoned wooden boats scattered about the property. A decade ago, Ron Guertin and his wife Barbara purchased it while living in nearby Newbury, Massachusetts. Ten years on, the marina is an entirely different place, with new docks, two homes, and one floating cottage. There are still plenty of boats, but they look fresh and well tended.
