NORTH KINGSTOWN â When youâre fed up with freezing temperatures, icy roads and blackened snow piled high, itâs nice to think about warm-weather activities as a distraction.
Some people pore over seed catalogs, planning their spring gardens. Barry Gross is enmeshed in plans to refurbish the old Johnsonâs Boat Yard site that heâs owned since 1992. Heâs already started, dredging three years ago to increase the capacity to 60 slips plus 24 moorings in Mill Cove.
Now, under the new name Northwick Boat Yard, the Narragansett-based realtor and developer is upgrading the facilities again.
