Cheap DIY boatyard with Dry Dock storage Florida/Georgia

Hi

We're an Australian couple who have just purchased a 30 foot Bristol. We need to find a cheap DIY boatyard with dry dock storage (possible liveaboard option while we work on her?) in the Florida/Georgia area. We need to be able to sail her in, haul her out and dry dock her. Somewhere ideally not too far from a major airport. Boat may need to be in dry dock for about three months while we make a trip home (May through July)

We'd welcome any suggestions

Ant & Carol

Try Indiantown Marina on the Okeechobee waterway, just west of Stuart, FL.

Does Georgia have a west coast? Anyway I'd opt for Tiger Point marina in Fernandina Beach right on the FL/GA border about an hour from Jacksonville airport.

A Shameless plug

For Green Cove Springs Marina. Located on the St. Johns River just south of Jacksonville.
I admit I am the dockmaster there, but we might be just what your looking for.

Crackerboy was a friendly place to work. But it's more than a walk to any stores so plan on renting a car. They lock up after about 9pm and it's pretty quiet. You can stay aboard on the hard. Big plus is Marine Connection Liquidators about 5 miles away. TONS of used gear.

Green Cove Springs Marina (2nding Dave's shameless plug) is a friendly place with a lot of folks doing the live aboard while refitting thing.

Green Cove Springs Marina is where I'm refitting, great prices, very frendly staff, convinent to St. Augustine and Jacksonvill so you can get anything you might need in terms of supplies. In St.Augustine I heartily reccomend The Sailors Exchange for SUPER deals on parts, rope, sails, etc.

Good luck!

Mike

Hi!

I am purchasing a boat in Inglis, FL and plan to take it to a DIY yard after purchase. I figure I would take it south along the coast to somewhere between Tarpon Springs and Naples. Can anyone recommend some good options for DIY boat yards in this region?

Thanks!
