Florida Panhandle DIY boatyards/marinas

I am looking for a DIY boatyard in the Big Bend to Panama City, FL area.

My goal is to take out a 29' sailboat (10' beam, 5'3" draft, 7,500 lbs dis.) for bottom checks/repairs/repainting.

I would appreciate any listings in the Florida panhandle area.

Update:

So far I heard of one boatyard in the area which allows for DIY boat work.

Bay County Boatyard on the Watson Bayou in Panama City, FL

Anyone know of any other DIY boatyards?

Port St Joe's Boat Works

I just heard of another place that may or may not allow DIY work. But no one answers when I try to call for info.

Anyone know of Port Joe's Boat Works? I think they also go by the name "Gulf County Shipbuilding Inc". They are located just off of the GICW near White City, FL

There is one in Carrabelle. Might be called Timber island Marina.

Re: Florida Panhandle DIY boatyards/marinas

Bay County boat works is probably your best bet. I have had business dealings with them in the past and I highly recommend them. I'm not sure about timber Island because I haven't been there in two years. Carrabelle can be a very difficult place to get supplies. at a reasonable cost....... Panama Marine supply has good prices on most anything you will need.

Sure did miss that. In that case I take it all back, no DIY marinas in NW Fl.
