Putting a boat on the hard?

I found I boat I would like to purchase in San Diego and it needs a good amount of work. Does anyone know a good yard to store a 38ft boat that will allow me to work on it and charges a reasonable storage rate? I would like to get her ready for some summer/fall sailing.

This is something that is done all the time, you'll just have to wait for someone who knows San Diego to chime in...or start calling yards out of the phone book or on-line.

It has never been done because it is not possible.

That's Funny

But may be true ...It is getting harder to find marinas that allow owners to work on their boats...Good Luck

I agree with hog - no marina charges "a reasonable storage rate", left or right coast.

Reword the question using unreasonable, and this thread will fill up very quickly.

Part of the problem is many marinas and boatyards no longer allow people to do work on their own boats. A lot of this is due to the EPA cracking down on waste handling, and bottom paints are considered hazardous waste, since it is a heavy metal toxin laden material.

Also, on the two coasts, marinas are getting pushed out by residential and commercial developments, and that means the few that are left are getting more expensive, since there is greater demand and less supply.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks for the input guys. I may look into Mexico and see what they got for storage/repair facilities. I can't believe there are so many boats in such poor condition at some marinas. People pay $400 or more month to let their boats fall apart. Kind of sad really.
