Where to unstep mast in/near Tonawandafor Erie Canal

I posted this question on CF, but do not seem to be getting the answer I need. We are just about to hit the Erie Canal and hear the consensus is to avoid Wardells if you are looking for patient, professional help.

So if not Wardells then where should I unstep my mast? I don't mind paying reasonable labor rates for god help.

Try rcr yachts. Good reports but no personal experience. We ended up going the other way.

Be aware wardells is the last fuel stop before the canal but if you show up with a mast on deck it's reported he'll refuse to sell you fuel!

Thanks much!

I prefer to buy my diesel at gas stations. Fresher. Wardell can kiss my 4ss.
