Seaboats, Inc., Fall River MA

Seaboats and its sister, Tugs Unlimited, were small towing companies owned by the Church family in Portsmouth RI. They had their own shipyard in Fall River MA: see it from the air on Google here. The business was bought by Kirby in 2011 and closed, but the yard is still functioning as a repair facility. Comments or queries, please email
