Livermore ’s Sunrise Mountain Sports, which has guided and supplied Tri-Valley outdoor sports enthusiasts for more than four decades, will close its doors later this year.

Kim Grandfield, the store’s founder and co-owner, said that he regrets closing, but the store is no longer profitable and its continued operation cannot be justified.

      Boatel Coming Soon to Kent Narrows

      CHESTER — Kent Narrows Marine will open Phase 1 of a state-of-the-art boatel this fall.

      A heated indoor boat storage facility that can accommodate up to 200 boats, the boatel will be located at Kent Narrows near the Piney Narrows Yacht Haven.

      Boatel storage provides boat owners a worry-free way to enjoy boating with the elimination of boat ramp drama and exposure to external elements when the boat isn’t in use. By using the latest BoatCloud StackTrack phone app, a customer can schedule their launch well in advance to ensure their boat will be in the water and ready for a fun day of boating.

      Kent Narrows Marine is owned and managed by local residents and businessmen; Jody Schulz, Fisherman’s Inn and Crab Deck restaurants, Rob Marsh, Wye River Marine Boat Sales, and Jeff Kogok, the owner of the Severna Park Tap House restaurant.

      “With the Kent Narrows as one of the best boating destinations on the Chesapeake Bay, we are excited to offer this new type of boating opportunity to the area,” Marsh said. “This boatel will be a positive contribution to many other local businesses here in Queen Anne’s County along with creating new job opportunities and expanding the commercial tax base.”

      Kent Narrows Marine will be a full-service operation including all aspects of marine repair and maintenance along with a full concierge service providing food and beverage, boat rentals and trailer rentals. Future developments are to include a restaurant, a convenience/marine store, and opportunities for other retail and commercial tenants.

      “The support from the local community and an extremely helpful staff at the Queen Anne’s County planning office has been instrumental in making this a reality,” Schulz said.

      Shore United Bank is financing the Kent Narrows Marine project.

      “Being able to offer this service in our area is huge for the boating community,” Robin O’Brien, vice president and commercial banking officer at Shore United Bank, said. “We are very excited to be a part of something so impactful to our community and our local economy.”

      Kent Narrows Marine will be providing multiple high skilled job opportunities for forklift operators, marine technicians, dock hands and office personnel. The grand opening for the boatel is scheduled for Nov. 1, 2017. For more information, visit
