Question Seeking GOOD Boat Yard S. FL.

Will some of you tell me of a good boat repair yard in South Florida.

I'd like one below Ft. Myers on the west coast.

The work to be done will be a bottom job, with fiberglass repair.
Installing a new rear engine seal, a dripless stuffing box, and
some other minor (yea right) stuff.

I may also require rigging and interior wood and wiring work.

Anyone know of a GOOD yard that may be able to do this?

Thanks everyone.

Jim

There isnt much South of Ft Myers except Naple$$$ and Key We$$$t. If I were you, I would go North to Sarasota/Bradenton or the Tampa area. There are ten times more boatyards North than South.

Doubt he much cares, as he needed the boat yard FOUR YEARS AGO. I would highly recommend you check dates on posts before replying and read the POST in my signature to help you get the most out of sailnet.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hey Coco,

I've fallen into the "old post" trap more than once myself, so don't worry.

I entirely concur with your response and think your info. will be useful to others.
