    My name is Robbie Cannon and I live a few canals away from Barry’s yard, the Riviera Boatyard. I am very familiar with the boat yard business as I had one for 24 years in Charleston SC. I disagree with the people that talk about wrecked boats and oil etc. Barry has nothing like that going on there at all. The commercial guys that fish out of there are the nicest people that you would ever want to meet. The truth is that when guys like Barry are not able to stay in business anymore then these comments will all be about- I SURE WISH HE WAS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Currently there are no half sunken boats clogging the canal system…or leaking oil. Each vessel in the basin is in no way blocking the creek or canals. We have been renting a slip there for almost 2 years and have seen the manager of the place improve the site substantially. I am pleased with the location and the commercial fishermen docked there that I have met. They have been helpful and courteous. I have enjoyed the quiet and beauty at this location. I have docked in large marinas with a grid of concrete docks and am glad I have shade of a tree with birds nesting and ospreys raising their young. An occasional otter pops his head up as do dolphins and rays or a manatee. Sunsets are gorgeous. I have had the opportunity to do a number of watercolor paintings at this location. View at my website

    Barry has continued to work on cleaning up after Charlie. Most all of the old boats are gone.Environmental problems have been taken care of. The biggest complaints come from cultural differences. Those of us that want a old Florida style DIY marina and those that have moved in recently and want a modern yachty marine. It is still a good usable marina that takes care of the locals here. Part of the problem has been people bringing in old boats to work on and then abandoning them. It would also help if people would stop dropping off their unwanted cats there, knowing that Barry will take care of them.
    I have been a twenty year year resident in the neighborhood and not afraid to post my name.
