Your best bet is to look around for a house to put it behind or a dockaminium that is not in use.

The market there is somewhere between tanked and non-existent, so anything a owner can get out of his house will be a relief. We had a neighbor that "rented out" his slip behind his house in the good times. I have been told there are a lot more that will do it in the bad.

I used to live there, and lived on our boat at FMB. I am not aware of ANY place that still does dry-docking there (FMB). There is a place off of Sumerlin where we used to keep one of our fishing boats. It was right next (and part of ) the Marine Max delaership. They kept some sailboats on the hard, but they converted it to dockominiums. Not sure if they stopped dry-docking boats, but I think they did. Call them at 239-481-1132. That is the marine max, but they will know the marina as it is right next to them.

Of course, I have not done this for several years now so my info may be a bit off.

Best of luck,
