DIY Yard Needed -Florida/SE US
I am in need of a boatyard that allows DIY and use of independent workers to complete the interior of my old 56 foot steel ketch. She is 56/15/9 and weighs about 15-20 tons.

No glitzy marina features are needed-- just need a good working yard close to a West Marine and Home depot.

Any recommendations?

We were very pleased with Charlotte Harbor Boat Storage, Inc, Placida,FL. Don't know if they can handle your boat. PH # 941-828-0216. Worth a call. Can live and work on the boat, Home Depot very close, West Marine not too far. Best of Luck

They allow DYI, Liveaboard, and West Marine and Home Depot are not too far away. We will be pulling out there this spring for a bottom job.

Good Luck.

I believe there is also a Cracker Boy at Fort Pierce also. West Marine is close, but not Home Depot.
