need a place to work on 35' in Toronto Canada

I'll be posting the whole comedic story to a blog soon, bun in the mean time, anyone have an idea where I can, for a reasonable price, store and work on a 35' sloop within an hours drive of the Toronto, Canada area -

Bluffers park marina
the price for storage isn't bad and the access to power and your boat are excellent.

There are several marinas that would fit your requirement but you will have to call around to check for prices. Gord May's suggestion is excellent. Depending upon the type of work you will be doing, the indoor storage option may be attractive. I expect it's expensive during the winter but I've found it almost empty during the summer so you may get a break on pricing. Port Credit also has very good GO train connections to Toronto if you are without a car for whatever reason.

Additional options are the Outer Harbour marina in Toronto or possibly Bronte (not too familiar with the latter though).

I completely rebuilt my O32 at Port Credit Harbor Marina in Mississauga.
It's at the foot of Hurontario and Lakeshore.
They don't ask too many questions.
Go in and see the girls in the office.
Prices are reasonable and the people are friendly.
I wouldn't tell them you plan on doing a "project".
Just buy outside storage, keep the bills paid up, and go to work.

The key at PCHM is to "get along" don't ask for anything, be friendly and keep a low profile. If you follow these rules you can build an H-Bomb inside the facility and they will just smile at you.

It is truly a place for a boat project.
They have a 30 ton travel lift and a mast crane with skilled operators for both. The Marina is close to everything, their is a chandlery (Mason's Store) right inside the Marina, LCBO is on the corner. Post office, supermarket, Tim's, Second cup, and more food than you can count all in 2 minutes walk or less.

You should go down this week though...
The place it filling up and the haul out schedule is into late November, early December already.

A 35 footer will cost you about $1900 or so for outside storage.
Less if it isn't to beamy.

FYI: Your boat must be insured to be in the yard. They ask for it now and won't touch you with out it. Easiest insurance around if you need it in the Toronto area is Robertson and Robertson.
