cheapest drydock facility on Vancouver island?

Hi helping replace thru hauls on a hefty steel boat and was wondering if anyone knows the cheapest place to drydock on van isle. Figured asking would save me from calling up every bait yard around. Thanks

Vancouver Island's a big place... Victoria area or Nanaimo? If it's a large boat that will be limiting too.. In Southern BC I'd say Shelter Island, a few miles up the river from Steveston will be your best bet, big lifts and lots of space with almost certainly the lowest fees.

On the island, not sure, but Nanaimo has a few on Newcastle Channel including a serious marine ways if no one has a large travel lift there.

The Port Hardy end, the Victoria end, or the middle?

How large and heavy is the boat?
