Damon Weisz of Gulfport gets some tips on working the small sailboat he bought on the spur of the moment from Fred Metcalf Saturday for his daughter Destiney’s [cq] 15th birthday present. “She’s going to be extremely surprised,” Weisz said.

usiness was steady on Miriam Street South by Clam Bayou Saturday, March 21, as the Gulfport Municipal Marina hosted its annual nautical flea market. Denis Frain, director of marina operations, said it was “perfect” weather for the sale, which drew 48 vendors and several hundred visitors. He said the event gave members of the boating community a chance to sell items they no longer needed “so they can buy more boating stuff.”
