The Alamedan: City evicting boat yard from Alameda Point, April 30, 2013


The city is seeking to evict Nelson’s Marine from its perch on Alameda Point. The sheriff’s office is set to padlock the boat repair yard’s gates today, the head of a nonprofit rescue group that’s based there said.

Ray Thackeray of the International Rescue Group said an attorney hired by the city e-mailed him to let him know the boat yard was being shut down and the gates locked today.

“He did confirm that they are closing down the Nelson’s Marine facility,” Thackeray said Monday.
