Re: eastern long island winter storage
Should I dare to ask how you've come to know this? Didn't Manhasset Bay YC allow you to do some rudder work DIY? Did they let you paint the bottom there?
There are fewer and fewer DIY yards these days. If none of the marinas in 3 Mi. Harbor pass muster I'd check out as far away as Mt. Sinai, Port Jeff, even Huntington/Northport.
Generally, the agreements state no bottom painting. They didn't charge too much though, IMHO.
FIberglass and epoxy work are fair game.
