Sidney, BC - spring haulout yard recommendations

I need to choose a place for some basic spring maintenance in Sidney, BC. I hate just picking somebody at random and recommendations would be appreciated (as would warnings). I am looking for competent work at a reasonable price (aren't we all) but have really no way of comparing the outfits. Even if we assume they both do good work and have similar hourly rates, I can't see how one can compare costs.
So, anyone care to recommend a boat yard ?

BTW, I am looking at getting some minor dings fixed, hull cleaned and waxed, hopefully last years bottom coat is still good so just a pressure wash and, last but not least, I need an 'indiscretion' fixed in the lead keel (damn rocks!)

I am looking at Blackline Marine and West Bay Marine but if there is some other yard I should look at then by all means, please mention it.

For cleaning and waxing, drop Fraser an email, fraser@proboatclean.com, he restored the gelcoat on Tangerine and is likely to do a far better job than a yard. He might also help with dings etc.
