Largest Yards on E. Coast?

I'm looking for the largest yards on the E. Coast. I've been to Indiantown in FL and making a trip to Deale MD in a couple of weeks. Where are the big yards located where you may find some good deals?

I'm always looking at all types of boats but it would be a dream to find a Bristol Channel Cutter for sale that "Needs some TLC" Me and and one or two other people on the planet I'm sure....lol

Brewers is a big one in terms of size and amount of yards BUT i dont see the yard as having much to do with finding a deal ?

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Just Looking

Just looking for places where people haul and store boats. Never know what you might find.

Herrington Harbor North (in Deale) is the largest one I know of on the Chesapeake. Sounds like it's already on your radar, though.

In Annapolis and Solomons, the concentration of largish marinas would make them good destinations. In Annapolis, Burt Jabins and Port Annapolis would be two of the larger ones. Washburns, Zahneiser's, and maybe Spring Cove (??not sure on that one) would probably rank largest in Solomons.

But I would think it would be more efficient to simply drive a keyboard around the web. Maybe not as much fun, but...

We'll I haven't been to HH North in a while but it is not exactly a cheap place to let a boat languish. There is a small yard just across the bridge from HHN where it seemed boats were going to die. I looked at a CS36 there a couple of years ago.

You might try the yards around Deltaville, VA also. No one big yard, but several fair sized ones and being that its among the cheapest places to keep a boat on the Chesapeake its probably more likely to have a few that are neglected.

Good Luck,

Bill

Thanks everyone, I'm driving up to NC today to look at a boat. John, I looked into touring the PSC factory but it's a few hours from where we're going and we have to get back, I would like to go up to Washington sometime.

Brandon,

That's a trip I'd like to do sometime too -- but I'm still waiting for my invitation.

Actually, I've heard Washington is a good place to visit by water -- I've toyed the idea of sailing down there for a look.

well I got my 1985 C30 TR there for $1000! (HH N) but found it on craigslist.

I love to sail, coming from a Swordboat capt's loin one would think I'd of caught the bug long before now! Oh well, this ones for you Bisque...(My Father may he RIP)

Now If I could only stay away from working on the damn things I could sail more!

Well I suppose the flip side of HHN being expensive is owners that don't need/want their boats anymore are highly motivated to sell.
