That sounds like their rates. They've fully eliminated seasonal or even weekly/monthly rates. They charge by the foot per day and you'd drop your jaw to see the dozens of 100ft+ boats that still stay for months.

If you're going to Portsmouth, where NEB is located, highly consider using the Hinckley yard. They are not exclusive to the Hinckley brand, they serve everyone. They are next door to NEB, which has a very mixed reputation. NEB huge and it probably depends on whether you hit the lottery, with whichever tech is assigned to your job.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
