Yer boat yard fees?

What do you guys usually pay per month when you're on the hard? I'm hearing $300/month around the Gulf of Texas (some call it the Gulf of Mexico - but they're morons)...and that sounds stupid. It's freakin' land!

Just curious since I'll have a sweet pimped out yacht on the hard near Rockport, TX in the next year or so and I don't know squat.

(Also - how do you adhere shag carpeting to interior teak?)

Sounds a lot like $300 per month.

$135/mo on my 34 footer for storage, or $0/mo if the yard is doing work on the boat. If you really want to stick carpet to teak, use gorilla glue, lots of it. If that dont work use lots of 5200! Have fun..............

Up north the yards charge BY THE FOOT and BY THE SEASON, and short term storage may not be available in the winter. Once the yard fills--you're in until they can get to you in the launch sequence.

Shorter term is going to be charged higher rates, just like dockage terms.

And folks who book year-round (dock or mooring plus winter haul/storage) usually get a break off both as well.

SmackDaddy,

As they say, "Size matters", and yard fees usually depend on LOA -- with a surcharge for the "fat cats". I pay just over $2000 for six months of winter storage in RI (47 ft), but that includes the round trip with the travel lift and a bottom scrub.

As for the carpet -- only "girlie-men" (as Arnie would say) have shag carpets on their soles.

depends on how big the boat is

yards around here measure by the sq footage, meaning length X width. No discount for the v shape of the bow
