Newport Beach is planning to build Marinapark on city-owned land along busy Balboa Boulevard —a sailing center and guest marina that will honor our sailing tradition. Until construction begins, a number of public tennis courts line the street side of the city's property.
Taking a hint from Los Angeles, let Holland, after giving him time to patch his ship's hull together enough to withstand moving, use of one of those courts to complete her reconstruction.
Each court's size is right: 60 by 120 feet will nicely accommodate her 72-foot hull. Each court has a level concrete slab, electricity for tools, and a surrounding chain link fence for protection of and viewing by hundreds of passing residents and visitors.
