Cheap location with lift for "short haul"

Would anyone have leads on marinas with lifts that don't charge much for the "short haul" - i.e. pull the boat out for inspection, may be power wash, and then back in.
Mine is $8/ft which is not a total disaster, but I think someone should do better.

$8 a foot in New Jersey be a bargain. Without a power wash, I pay $300 for a 30 foot boat to pull the boat out and put in back in.

Brak,
Where'd you find 8 bucks a foot. That would be a steal for me.

Hmm, strange. Herrington Harbor North lists $6.50 a foot for boats under 40' or so (and $8 after that), so that's one that is cheaper right there. My marina is Zahnisers.

I recall my previous yard (Casa Rio) charged less ($4.50 or so) and so did another yard nearby (can't remember the name, Rhode River may be) but they are a bit dicey and I'd like to avoid them if I can.

I can't find a diver to go replace my zincs (and I don't feel like diving into the marina muck) so I am considering doing a short haul, but only if its cost effective.

I want to say I paid $110.00 for a quick pull, power wash and back in? I will check our records and see if I can confirm. Whatever it was it was a lot cheaper than I expected. Of course we are slip holders, the price is probably different for others?

Yup, I found it already, paid $3.00 per foot, or $111 for our 37' boat.

Thanks Chef This is a bit of a trip for me but I'll keep it as a viable option anyway if I go that way (doing it on purpose would cost more in fuel if I have to motor and food if I get to sail ).

My boat has a Datamarine depth instrument which I'd like to replace - if you are interested in it.

Thanks 737Chef, that's the closest I've found to me - now to call and see if they will do a Gemini.

Brak,

Spring Cove in Solomons is showing $6.00 a foot for Haul & wash. I used them a few years ago on another boat and was pleased with both their service and pricing.

My 2008 work request for HHN is showing $6 for hauling, $2.75 for washing plus $75 per half hour in the slings if you need additional time.

They just sent me a bill for $75, as I requested to be pulled before lunch break and hung over the well so I could inspect and paint my centerboard.

I got a quote of over 1000.00 bucks for a short haul by the supposedly Morale Welfare and Recreation supported U.S. Navy operated Marina in Annapolis - and that was with a sneer and obvious 'we don't want your stinking catamaran' undertone. In fact the manager of the nearly frigging empty yard said he could only tolerate two gemini's at one time.

So much for being retired Navy.

I would love to pay 6 a foot for a haulout, and my beam is only 3-4 feet more that your's, now I just have to find one that's not a 6 hour sail away.
