Check with some of the smaller Marinas that are not affiliated with the big chains. I used to keep my boat at Harry's in Westbrook Ct and as long as you follow his rules you can do just about every thing yourself. Harry is very knowledgeable and a great resource, just stay on his good side.

I'm doing mine at liberty harbor marina next year. My boat is at liberty landing, across the canal from them, but liberty landing doesn't let you do your own bottom work

Call me. There's one that will let you do everything, following their rules. Then there's another that will let you do everything except apply bottom paint. I recommend them both.

Brad

Morgan Marina off Raritan Bay in Parlin, NJ lets you do it yourself, but the 35' drawbridge between the bay and the marina is closed for repair until April. Sorry

There are rules for waterfront businesses. I used to paint at Old Man's, now I can't. Some yards have storage facilities away from the water where you can sand and paint.
