Re: DIY Refit Yards in the East Coast, USA

The East Coast of the US does indeed cover a bit of real estate and there are no doubt hundreds if not thousands of places that allow DIY work and would be cabable of hauling your vessel.

The Chesapeake has a high concentration of such facilities and I'd recommend you concentrate your search in the Deltaville VA area of the Chesapeake. I believe there are several marina's with lifts capable of hauling your boat and there is at least one marine railway that is definitely up to the task. That facility also has a great deal of experience with wooden boats.

Checkout these places to start but there are others you might try.
