Best Haul Out in Caribbean for Paint/Refurb

I am taking my boat from Isla Margarita to FL this winter and want to haul it out for paint and refurb. Bottom paint has been done. I intend to do most of the fixup work myself so I need a yard that will allow that. Have been thinking about FL but am concerned about limitations on painting outside.

Will need a larger lift. Boat is 56 foot steel ketch at 33 tons.

Anybody have any thoughts?

Both Peakes and Powerboats in Chaguramas have pretty good reps and can handle your size...but here's a link to a chart with all the marinas and lifts and rate there:

Grenada Marine did great and reasonable work for us and it doubles as a customs check in point so if Grenada is more to your liking, give them a shout as they also have a 70 ton lift.

kaakre,

St. Augustine Marine in St. Augustine can haul you. They have a DIY yard available and also can do the work for you if you wish. The facilities are rather sparse as they're essentially a boatyard and not a marina.
