 Question 4. What is the difference between the BRMF and Boothbay Harbor Waterfront Preservation (BHWP)?

The BRMF currently owns a historic, active, commercial lobster buying station at 87 Atlantic Ave called Carter’s Wharf and formerly know as the Sea Pier. In addition, they lease from the Catholic Church a smaller adjacent pier that was one of the first fishing co-ops in the state of Maine. This pier is used by lobstermen as space to work on gear, dry out traps, and ground out their boats. BRMF is solely focused on the preservation of working waterfront and education thereof.

Conversely, BHWP currently has 80 feet of working waterfront dock space and is also focused on building a park for public access to the water.

Both organizations have independent roles in meeting the objectives of the former east side maritime district that was in place for 35 years, to:

a) protect working waterfront and
b) conserve points of public access to the water
