Boat Yards on the Gulf Coast

I would like to truck my 37 ft ketch to the Gulf coast to prepare for a voyage to the Yucatan. From Denver, CO it seems impossible to find a boat yard that will off-load my boat, help stand the mast, and let me work on it. I only need a week ( that means two) - yard work to roll on bottom paint and a dab topside repair, rest in the water. As I used to live in New Orleans, and they could sure use the money, I'd prefer to land near there. Of course cost is a factor. Thanks, Rob

Can't help you with New Orleans, but these ol' boys can handle the job in Biloxi, MS.
Rebel Boatworks Shipyard.
They have handled work on the Biloxi Schooners..."Glenn L. Swetman" and the "Mike Sekul".

Just a quick Google away. A couple miles south of I-10 via I-110. Easy navigation for big trucks.

I had a date with Seabrook Marine in New Orleans this month to fix some damage to my hull, DIY. (I live on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain). I could tell by speaking with the yard guy that they don't normally have space for DIY, but apparently they are aching for business and I had only but to ask.

The rate was $15 per day. Seems like the haul/block rate was 10-11 bucks per foot.

Try Schubert's Marine in New Orleans. They're still rebuilding, but may be able to do it. 504-282-8136. If they can't, they'll tell you who can.
