Charleston Boatyards info needed

Charleston Boatyards info needed


Hi, y'all,

We have a wedding to go to in Charleston next spring and want to kill two
birds with one stone by getting boat work done on what may be (famous last
words) the last time Flying Pig sees the US mainland before we have to get
off the boat.

Charleston is several hours closer to the activity we'd do other than the
wedding during our time ashore, so we're considering basing in Charleston as
opposed to our previously expected yard in Fernandina Beach.

We have three requirements, all of which are met by our previously expected
yard, Tiger Point Marina, with whom we'd been very happy in the past:

The yard must accept our self-insured status

The yard must allow us doing some work on our boat, and living aboard during
that time (during which time we'd expect daily lay day charges)

Bottom job and other work done by the yard will allow us to not pay storage
during the time the boat is there while _we're_ not working on the boat

Recommendations?

As I have sometimes-limited access to broadband, which limits my ability for
web-based applications, if you'll also copy responses me directly at
skipgundlach@gmail.com I'd very much appreciate it.

Thanks, so much...

L8R

Skip and Lydia

Hi, Y'all,

I promised I'd report back when I had results. The delay has been caused by
my inability to reach Hazzard and Dolphin Cove...

I also did a comparative analysis between our top choices, Tiger Point
(Fernandina Beach, not, of course, Charleston) and Rockville Marine. For
our purposes, they were similar in cost, but not being able to live aboard
(requiring hotel costs) has forced us to return to Tiger Point, not a
negative, as we've had excellent results personally, as well as have
encountered many cruisers who share our positve thinking about their
experiences with them.

My report:

Hazzard marine never responded to several emails...

Dolphin Cove Marina - Haul Out
DIY, (less than 3 months) $15.00 per ft per month, Up to 2 people
$150.00 + Monthly Wetslip Storage Fee, $1.00 per ft per night ( Boats are
measured Length Overall )+ $5.50 for electrical hookup ("electricity is
metered," so presume one-time fee? ), haulout and PW/Bottom work not
specified, unknown extra labor - sent another 8-11, 8-25, no response

Pierside Boatworks - About Us
H//L $10, PW 3.75, 2coats 18 + T+M to prep, Lay 1.50/day, storage 1/day or
13/month, contract, 87.50 - Response:
We do not have facilities here & do not allow living on the boat in our
yard. It will take us a maximum 4 days to complete the bottom job, assuming
there is no rain. D-I-Y storage & storage rate will apply the day we are
finished. I do apologize for the delay in responding to your email.

Thank You,
Lisa
