      The popular Georgetown boathouse that rents out boats and kayaks for people to use on the Potomac River will reopen April 20 with a new name.

      B&G Outdoor Recreation will run what will now be called Key Bridge Boathouse starting in about a week. It's at the same site that Jack's Boathouse had been in operation since 1945.

      The Massachusetts-based company was awarded a two-year contract to manage the boathouse in March.

      Jack's Boathouse had operated under a month-to-month lease for more than three decades before being served an eviction notice by the National Park Service last December.
