Sorry Dick

But the only way to get here is through Jacksonville. The marina is the last stop up river from Jacksonville due to bridge clearance. The bridge just south of the marina has 45' clearance. Comming from the ocean or the ICW the lowest fixed bridge is 65'.
FYI the St. Johns runs south to north.

Cape Marina at Canaveral will allow you to DIY.

Harbortown Marina will not, and I don't think the other marinas in the Port will either.

I was on the hard at Cape Marina early this year for about 5 weeks to do a lot of painting, and I found the folks there to be nice. They do have a funny pricing policy intended to get you out of the yard quickly (it rises over time).

If you need to live aboard while on the hard, Cape Marina allows you to do so.

Cap'n Dave,

Is the only access through Jacksonville? I'd rather be further south but this place sounds great for repairs. I also have a marina where I have stayed before near downtown for in the water so JAX, while it's a bit out of the way, is attractive.

If you really want to go to NE Florida

Try Green Cove Springs Marina. Haul out 1.75 per foot .45 a foot per day for the Work Yard. The place is allways full

Dick Pluta Thanks for the tip, Cameraderie. We only draw 5 feet so it shouldn't be a problem. I'll check into Crackerboys. It sounds just right.

camaraderie Come in the Ft. Pierce inlet and go traight in to Crackerboys yard for the on the hard stuff. Right next door is Harbortown Marina if you need to be in the water for a while. Crackerboy has NO slips...they hav a nice lift and good yard help and you can contract with locals for sevices or do it yourself. You may have to play the tide for haulout...but we did it with 6' at high tide with no problem.

DIY yard in East Florida

I plan to return to the US from the Bahamas for a while to do some much needed maintenance and upgrading. Can anyone suggest a reasonably priced DIY yard on the central Florida Atlantic coast where I can leave a boat for a few months. I can do in the ater most of the time but need to go on the hard for a few weeks to do the bottom work.
