Da plan: We're up here at the top of the Great Lakes. We plan to start the full-time cruise in a year or two. But instead of rushing through the St. Lawrence and Atlantic Canada we're looking at spending a couple of years exploring the area. This would necessitate hauling out somewhere in Maritime Canada (or perhaps Maine) the first year, and probably NFLD the second.
Looking for info on good yards and cost estimates from those in the know.
You could check with the Dartmouth Yacht Club, Armdale Yacht Club and maybe the Bedford Yacht Club. DYC does work on boats I'm not sure about the others. The south shore is also a good bet 'Lunenburg' area and there are several boat yards on the eastern shore ie. Sheet Harbour area. Sorry I can't help about costs as my boat is trailered in the off season as well as being a DIY'r.
