Less expensive place to haul out?? (Close to NY or Long Island)

I'm planning to haul-out for 2 weeks to do some keel work, specifically re-barrier coating the top part of the iron keel "very near" where it meets the hull. Then she'll go back in the water and we'll be on our way.

Anyone know of an inexpensive place to do this on Long Island? Nearby would be ok too, like Stamford CT, the lower Hudson River, or Northern NJ.

Brewers Glen Cove wants $1000 ($20 a foot) for the haul in/out and blocking. Is there any place cheaper?

Regards,
Brad

You might try Spicer's Marina in Noank, CT. We hauled there a few years ago and I can't remember the cost but it seemed reasonable. They have a very good marine store there if you need to buy anything.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

KS,

I'll call them today.

Good to know about the marine store too. I usually go to West Marine but it's 30 minutes from where we usually winter/haul-out.

Anyone else have any suggestions?

Regards,
Brad

Brad,
Maybe as far away from Garden City as Noank, CT but folks on the lower Hudson seem to use a DIY yard in Stony Point, NY. There is also the place in Tarrytown where Bubb2(Mike) keeps his boat - just not sure if they are set up to handle your 50' Bene.

I'd also check any of the non-Brewer's marinas from Manhassett to Huntington and even Port Jeff/Mt. Sinai. Brewer's has set the standard for high prices while buying up many of the independent yards.
Is your Bene 505 still out at MTK?

You might try Manhasset Bay Shipyard and Manhasset Bay Marina.

I'm hauling out for the winter at the shipyard this year. Was in Glen Cove for the past two winters, but when Brewer's jacked up the price after buying them, it just wasn't worth the added drive time compared to Manhasset Bay Shipyard, which is much closer to home.

I hauled out for Irene at the marina. Manager was nice, but the owner tried to back out on hauling me out for the hurricane while I was on the way over there and after they said the day before that they would haul me. Not cool. They eventually hauled me, but it shouldn't go down that way. I did look at them for winter storage, but decided I didn't like the idea of a constant flow of late night partiers from La Motta's milling about my boat all winter.

Generally the LI South Shore, the Hudson, and New Jersey yards will be cheaper than the yards on Long Island Sound. Depends on if the convenience is worth the extra $.

Good advice Jim.

I have a solid weekend of work to do, so I won't need to commute that often. (Could stay overnight on board, and even take Monday off.) The extra weekend is in case of rain.

It would be worth it to save $500.

Regards,
Brad

Plumbean,

You are the man!!!

MBSY is $300 to haul in/out and $3 for the hull cleaning. They apply bottom paint at $75/hour, but I don't really need a big bottom paint job, only some touch up at the waterline. Goerge there was very cordial. I actually can't wait to meet him.

That's $450 (plus a bit for painting), versus $1,000 for Brewers.

Thank you, thank you thank you!

Regards,
Brad

Happy to be of service. I actually haven't met George yet either, as I ended up dropping the winter storage contract off after hours. I've been in the yard a bunch though, as The Rigging Locker is located there. When will you be coming into port? I'm moored about 400 yards from the shipyard, but won't be hauling out until the end of October.

Best,

MD

"Have not met George yet". Your both in for a treat!
Actually after initial meeting/impression...you will
be dealing with a highly competent, highly regarded
professional...who happens to dance to his own tune.
Brad, let me know when will you be bringing Summer Boost into
Manhasset Bay?
