Re: Moving to the Florida Gulf Side
Florida is a very big place to say "anywhere." You could be talking 300-400 miles.
On the east coast, Playboy Marine in Fort Lauderdale is a very reasonable DIY yard that is close to Sailorman and a bunch of other chandleries for when you need a quick part. The rates are on its web site.
On the Okeechobee Waterway, there is a boatyard on the way to Ft. Myers that is extremely reasonable, albeit kind of far away from civilization.
Not many decent DIY yards on the west coast, where I live.
