Electrician auctioning bayside island

OCEAN CITY — A West Ocean City electrician who needs money to keep his business going is auctioning a private bayside island that features a sandy beach and hunting lodge.

The 30-acre parcel, called South Hammocks, is comprised of two separately deeded isles in the Assawoman Bay wetlands.

Gary Frick bought the island in 2001 from another family.

Auctioneer Doug Marshall hopes the property will bring between $250,000 and $400,000. Tax records indicate both parcels are assessed at about $293,000.
