Re: Dry docking a 29' boat (impossible dream?)

There are boat movers with hydraulic trailers and if there's a steep enough ramp around they can pluck you out of the water and transport you to wherever you can find a lot.

Any storage yard that stores RVs during winter should be able to provide that kind of service, if you can find a boat mover with the above equipment and it's not too far away I'd think the move might be $5-600. Off-water storage fees are likely to be lower. However you'll still need at least a small crane to drop the mast, unless your marina has a mast tower.
