Depends on what you call "reasonable" Over the last 10 years winter storage rates have been small what they have done is begin to nickle and dime the owners. Example, poppet's were included in the haul. Now we have to rent them from the yard. It used to be that the mast down and up were in the same bill. Now they are charged separately, once for down and once for up. On my last haul out they charged me to remove the boom and vang. Never saw that before. I just noticed that if you have the yard winterize your motor then starting battery removal and storage is mandatory. I think the list goes on. As for places to look that I think are reasonable is Yankee Marina in Portland CT. Up the river and across from Middletown. A do it yourself yard ( cause the mechanics are power oriented )

I have not used this yard in a long time but I know people who still do.
Besides the CT river is beautiful in the fall.
