Best haul out in Vancouver BC Area?

Anybody know the best priced haulout in the Vancouver BC Canada area
I have to do scraping and bottom paint ,and should probably count on some repairs too so a decent workyard fee would be necessary
I'll be doing all the work myself and I'm on a somewhat limited budget

Currently I'm moored in Burrard inlet just East of the Iron workers(2nd Narrows)memorial bridge

My boat is a 24'(on deck) wooden gaff cutter based on the picaroon design

Thanks

There used to be a tide grid at Burrard Civic Marina. The best price for a paint job if it is still there. For yard work maybe Mosquito Creek Marina in North Vancouver - it's close to you as well.

Lynnwood is quite good, that's where I'm at. No idea on prices though. Right under the second narrows.

You'll need to phone around. Rates vary and some places (Mosquito included) have a sliding scale.. ie one rate for the first 3 days and increasing after that. Also you need to figure the total based on the haulout rates combined with the daily cradle fees. If you're not certain you'll only be a day or two you'd probably be better off finding the least expensive daily storage/cradle rate. You'll be glad you did if you end up staying out for unexpected problems or issues.

Mosquito and/or Lynwood would make good sense for you and they are generally among the better deals overall. The best deal is probably Shelter Island but that's all the way around and back up the Fraser river past Steveston..

Given your location, you have lots of convenient options. I don't know anything about Lynnwood, so can't help you there.

We have friends who moor and haul out at Mosquito Creek. They aren't very impressed with the management, or the care taken in moving boats. Also, while the problem isn't as severe as in previous years, you need to make sure that any potential loose gear is locked or bolted down.

Granville Island could be an option, but I don't know if they just look after charter or brokerage boats.

We're hauling at Reed Pt next weekend. That would be about 1 hour motoring eastbound for you. Slightly more expensive than Mosquito Creek, but none of the above hassles. I can tell you that they are cheaper than Granville Island. If you go that route, Inlet Marine looks after dry storage and travel lift bookings.

We haven't been to Burrard Civic since we bought our own boat in 2009, but the tide grid was still there then. If the marina office doesn't have a separate listing, just look under Vancouver Parks Board.

Granville Island is not the place to do your own work. It is the place where you just write a big cheque.

SJ's right - Reed Point would make sense for the OP too.

Both Lynwood and Mosq Cr are run by the Squamish Band these days.. they've made some major improvements over the past few years but actually have downsized their haulout area significantly - at least at Mosq Cr.

Reed Pt will not be as convenient if you live on the North Shore - it will be a longer commute. There's also Thunderbird Marina and Race Rocks out in West Van.. but prices will be higher.

And Brian's correct about Granville Island too - higher rates but you can do your own painting and other work, with the requisite (everywhere) precautions these days.
