KEYPORT - Owners of a marina damaged by Sandy are hoping FEMA grants can help them pay for repairs.

Hans Pederson and Sons Marina and Boatyard in Keyport lost docks and gas pumps during Sandy.

The owners say three boats crashed through their building, causing about $400,000 in damage.

Jean Orr says her family has been working seven days a week to do the repair work and try to get the business back on track, and that grant money would be a big help.

The federal government says marina owners are eligible for grants valued between $50,000 and $250,000.
