Summer storage in Fla.

Happy New Year to all,

I am forced to return home early (end of Feb.) from my 1 year off due to buisness but would like to leave the boat in northern Fla. I came down from Ohio. will return around Oct. of 09 to cruise for another 4-5 months.

I would like to find a do it yourself yard to store the boat on the hard while i am back in Ohio. not necessarily looking for the cheapest place to store, but safe and knowledegable. so far i am looking at

Brunswick landing marina,GA not a do it yourself yard but protected

Tiger Point Marina, Fernandina Beach

Green Cove Springs, Fla. Probably a long waiting list, plan to call them after the holidays

Does anyone have other recommendations i may want to consider.

Thanks for any advice offered

P.S.... I love this place

Might want to look a bit further north, since getting insurance coverage through hurricane season might be a bit expensive if the boat is in Florida... or even Georgia.... Just a thought...

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.

We have a few good marinas in the Panhandle of Florida, but it looks like your on the east coast....

Good luck finding a kind marina!

I would have suggested up the St. Johns River for best protection in north Fl, but I see you have that listed. Sadler Point Marina in Jax, Fl is also a DIY yard, but much smaller than Green Cove. Holland Marine is also in Green Cove, not a DIY yard, but they may store for you. Another option that is a DIY yard not as far north, but a large and well-protected facility at the Titusville Basin next to the Municipal Marina. I believe the name is still Westland. 'good luck in your search, Aythya crew

I use a DIY yard in St. Augustine called Xynides Boatyard.[904-824-3446] They are a small yard run by a family with generations of experience building and repairing boats.

Good luck with Green Cove Springs. They have a 'good ol' boy' system--if they don't know you, you can expect a call from them sometime after Hades freezes over.

Personally, I'd stay away from Ron Holland's place. (Don't bother asking why...I don't wanta be sued.)

You didn't mention how big a boat. If it's smaller, you can go further up the river to Palatka. If it's a big boat, the Shand's bridge will stop you cold. Low clearance.

It may not look nice but I had no security problems at all,people live on their
boats on the hard while working on them,$3.50 a month working yard price.
