River Jam Festival Returns for 5th Year!
Rumery's Travel lift has been refurbished over the summer. We sandblasted the surface rust & painted the machine, replaced control cables and bearings, lubricated the wire rope and painted a new emblem to help find the centerline. The Rumery's crew, led by painter Kirsten Teel, did a fine job!
Founded in 1962 by Earl Rumery on the site of a former CMP coal fired electric generating station, originally constructed by York Light & Heat Company in the 1880s.
State-of-the-art craftsmanship - old-time service.
RUMERY'S RECEIVES SHARP CERTIFICATION
OSHA and the Maine Department of Labor recognized Rumery's outstanding record of workplace safety.
The US Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has formally recognized Rumery's Boat Yard as a participant in the SHARP program. Rumery's is one of 1,600 small businesses across the US who meets rigorous standards in identifying and eliminating workplace hazards.
NO WAKE RESTRICTIONS on the Saco River
The River has some fragile areas, where wake of any significance causes erosion of the bank, and a receding shoreline. The Cities of Saco and Biddeford enforce "headway speed only zones" in the River. See the Harbor Brochure for details. HOWEVER, when navigating in areas of the River where the restriction does not apply, you are still responsible for your wake. Be aware of other boats, especially smaller ones, and boats with other boats in tow.
ROWING SHELLS Donated to Community programs.
Rumery's donated two AVANTI class rowing shells, one to Portland Community Rowing Association and the other to Merrymeeting Community Rowing Association .
The gift included an aluminum shell trailer.
It's been a surprising summer with periods of great weather, hot humid days, some rain here and there and plenty of action on the water. Just recently had a 65' Schooner come up and grab a mooring for a short visit into town.
Their final destination is New Zealand.
Come down and celebrate the two communities of Biddeford and Saco come together for the 5th annual River Jam Festival taking place September 14 & 15, 2018.
Rumery's will be hosting dock space for River Tours departing at 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm on Saturday. Tickets will be $20 and can be purchased Eventbrite. There will also be free canoe rides leaving from the dock throughout the day.
