Milwaukee area marinas

I will be moving a boat from Chicago to the Milwaukee area. I need to find an affordable place to store the boat this winter. I need to do work on the boat this winter, so, they have to allow DIY in the yard... any suggestions?

Larsen's in Waukegan lets you do DIY.

Thanks, I'll look into that one. I picture myself spending a bit of time under a tarp this winter fixing a new-to-me Bristol 27.

Congratulations! That's a good lake cruiser!

Southwind Marina in Milwaukee is where I keep our boat over winter. Very good pricing and good access throughout the winter. No problems with owner work but decent yard crew when help is needed.

Gene Cramer is also a local fixture and sailboat guru who has partnered with Milwaukee Marine for boat storage. Gene knows old sailboats about as well as anyone and is one of the "good guys" of sailing.

I find that Milwaukee Marine is a little dirty and kind of run down whereas Southwind is fairly well kept with electricity and water (after the freeze danger has passed) readily available throughout the storage area.

I think you'll find that Southwind will be one of the least expensive options available in the area. Hard to beat clean, good access, and cheap.

You may want to look at Categories - Milwaukee Sailing Forum. The guy who runs it just bought a Bristol 29. We delivered it from Manitowoc to Milwaukee a few weeks ago. NICE BOAT.
