Clifton House hotel had been razed in 1939 and the Northeast Harbor Fleet purchased the dock for access to the water on the east side of town. They rebuilt the dock. “The new Clifton Dock was made an ‘official station’ of the Cruising Club of America and a fueling resource for boats of all kinds, and has had a marine supply store, which made it invaluable to yachts.” -"History of the Northeast Harbor Fleet" by Joseph L. Grant, published by Sawyer Cove Press, Seal Cove, ME, 2006, p. 85.
