I can recommend Key Alegro for a nice marina and can give some good references for boat repairs/etc in that area
Hooking Bull has 25tonne haul out and is a nice quiet yard where you can work on your boat Hope this helps
Hope this question isn't far off topic, but what does one do for 2 mos. while waiting for better weather? Are you actually staying in that area? During these instances, does one concern themselves about a livelihood/income, or are the vast majority retired/well to do, so not an issue? I would think a delay such as this would really affect any budget established for the trip. Maybe this is subject matter for another thread.
