Need Ideas for Cheoy Lee project
I'm getting back into sailing after being out of it for a while ( Annapolis area ). I am considering buying a 1966 Cheoy Lee 27 to restore. There doesn't seem to be anything structurally wrong - just a lot of brightwork and topsides that need restoring. Paint, varnish and a lot of elbow grease out to do the trick. However, I think to do this project right, it needs to be done indoors and in somewhat climate controlled conditions ( mainly because of all the varnishing that needs to be done ).
Anyone have any ideas about a place I could rent for 3 months? The worst case scenario would be to build a tent like structure at a do-it-yourself yard ( if they still exist??). But as winter is approaching, most of the yards will be full with haul-outs. Ideally, I could find warehouse space somewhere with a door big enough to fit the boat on a trailer ( this would be in the Annapolis - Baltimore area ).
I'm kind of stuck on this, because the project will be difficult to do outside in the dead of winter. Anyone have any ideas?
