Cruisers also get hauled at Baddeck Marine (think that is the name) in Cape Breton.

Any of these places will be much cheaper than Maine I think - no Hinckley affect.

Enjoy cruising down east. We loved Newfoundland in particular.
Many thanks Killarney. Great examples. I'll put those in the database.
