Future plans for the boathouse
North Sea residents, with the help of the Southampton Historic and Landmarks Board, sought to save the neglected building that had become a part of history. The Town Board designated the Tupper Boathouse historic and obtained initial restoration grant funding. Now plans are underway with the North Sea Maritime Center to identify further funding to restore the building. Additionally, the North Sea Maritime Center will develop community-centered programming that highlights Southampton's maritime history and culture.
