Longtime N.C. dealership closes shop


A North Carolina boat dealership, which was in business 40 years, recently closed its doors.

Crocker's Marine, a Grady-White and Parker dealership, "closed permanently" Oct. 29, according to a message on the company's answering machine.

Neighboring dealer Joel Romig, of SaltWater Marine, said he knew business would be slowing down, but he didn't think it would be like this.

"Boat sales are obviously off right now, with the current state of the economy, but service has been strong, so we have been holding our own with service," Romig told WECT-TV.

Crocker's Marine is closing both Wilmington locations and its Morehead Marine in Morehead City.
