Looking for recommendation

Close to buying a Shannon 38 for cruising/liveaboard. Since wife and I live in AK, we are shipping boat to west coast for fitting out before we sail her to Alaska. Can anyone recommend a reputable marina/boat yard that could re-rig our boat (rod rigging) and perform some needed repairs/modifications (like painting, upgrading thru hulls, interior work, etc., and possibly fiberglass repair as some areas of cabin have some water intrusion damage to the core)? Anywhere on the west coast is fine, not much difference, we chose west verses east as boat will probably be there until the spring and better weather window. Thanks for any help...

Svend''s in the San Francisco Bay is great:


But I would ship the boat to the Pacific Northwest and avoid the slog up the coast
against prevailing winds and currents.

Great pick on the boat by the way...

My brother did similarly with his J/30. Seattle-Juneau took him a LONG TIME. If you''re shipping to the West Coast, you might want to get further north to start with, unless there''s something in CA you especially want to see.
