What his wife doesn’t know

These are dark days for tenants at the Marine Basin Marina who recently learned they must move from their slips in Brooklyn, New York. With 200 boats now scrambling to find a new slip by April, this task for one boat owner could prove additionally complex for his lifestyle.
“It’s a huge loss for Brooklyn,” said a marina tenant, who spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear of his wife, who doesn’t know he owns a boat. “There’s a lot of guys who fish out of here, and it’s nice because you can be in the ocean very quickly, which is a huge bonus. And for sailors it’s a nice place, because it’s really deep and, again, ocean access.”
Seems like convenient access to the ocean is not his biggest problem.
