Mau Marina continues to re-build after roof collapse
ARNOLDS PARK, Iowa (KTIV) -- Things are looking a little bit better at Mau Marine in Arnold's Park, Iowa.
The boat dealership is rebuilding after its warehouse's roof as well as a roof over one of its docks collapsed last January from heavy snowfall. The dealership says it lost about twenty boats in all, some of which were privately owned.
The company says it will be ready for summer and is trying to make the best out of a bad situation.
"Some of our facilities, we have thought that maybe it would be nice to have new ones and you never ever want to have to do it out of this kind of situation, but we are really excited about what we are going to be able to do," says co-owner Julie Andres.
Andres says they were able to save about 80% of their boats. They're rebuilding the warehouse and docks making them sturdier for next winter.
