(Oct. 10, 2005 - Beaumont, TX)
We are happy to report that today Dawson Marine in Beaumont and Jasper, Texas were able to re-open after their visit from Hurricane Rita. Wes Dawson, reports that everyone and everything survived the storm in reasonably good shape. "We were able to store many of the boats at our Beaumont location in a large empty building that is next door", Wes said. "All of our customers boats that we had in the shop came through without any damage.", he further commented.
We lost some awings and overhangs, plus all the utilities were out. But as of yesterday, the electricity and telephones are on at both Dawson Marine locations. We should get our Internet access back up later today.
"We took a Hit on the Chin", stated Wes, "but we will make it ok". They are back in business, 8 to 5 weekdays and 9 to 3 on Saturday.
We're ready to help our friends if their boats were damaged, or if they need to replace a boat that fell to the winds of "Rita".
Dawson Marine is located at 4230 College, Beaumont, TX - (409)840-2055 and in Jasper at 4200 N. Wheeler, Jasper, TX - (409) 489-9600. Plus our Dawson Marine website has a large inventory of New and Used boats.
