"DIY yards" have been getting harder to find all over the US for the past 20 years. Concerns with EPA violations and liability issues and simply keeping the profits have hit everywhere.
You scrape off some bottom paint, it gets into the gravel, goes into the ground, and in some states the marina has to bulldoze the top six inches off the entire property and have it hauled off as hazmat. Crazy, sure, but I can see why some owners are simply in terror of DIY.
