Question Boatyard in San Diego

Hello,
I am planning to move (trailer) my sailboat a Columbia 34 to San Diego and was wondering if anyone could recommend a boatyard in the San Diego Bay area to lift my boat into the water and to step the mast for a decent price.

Thanks,
Chris

You might want to try Driscoll's in Mission Bay. Though it's north of San Diego bay proper, It's got DIY type arrangements and more reasonable prices than yards on Shelter Island. You'd have to sail or motor around Point Loma to get into the Bay (about 10-15 NM depending on how far south you need to make the rounding because of the kelp at the end of the Point).

Many Boat transporters launch boats at the Shelter Island Ramp and then motor them with the rigging in cradles to the yard's docks just to step the mast. The Ramp is free. The Driscoll yard is just on the south side of the Mission Bay entrance.

Thanks for the info, sounds great!! I am not sure if the boat transporter is willing to submerge his trailer but I'll ask.
But I'll contact Driscoll's in Mission Bay anyway!
Thanks,

There's a Driscolls, Shelter Island Boatyard and Koellers all next to each other here in Shelter Island, all will fit your needs but, I would call Shelter Island BY first, then Koellers

So you're moving into engines now huh. I'd think electrical would pay better, and be easier on the body.

Poopdeckpappy: You do varnish work? We should chat if your project list is thinning out.

TV195: There is Knight and Carver in San Diego Bay south of the Coronado bridge also. Oceanside has a lift that might suit you as well if you then want to sail your boat south into San Diego from there.
