Searching for marina south of hurricane zone

We are searching for a marina that can handle a 70-foot motor sailer, 7.6foot draft 17.6-foot beam.
They need to have a travel lift that can handle 75 ton. Looking for a marina to put on the hard and place
back in water when complete. Rent for being on hard from June 2020, until October 2020. We are looking to be able to have electricity and water while on hard.
Allow us to live aboard while on hard and allow us to work on boat while on the hard. We will be doing
mechanical work, wood working, fiberglass and painting. Painting will be with rollers and brushes, no spraying.
Allow us to hire local help, for cleaning and painting etc. would like marina to have showers,
laundry, and bathrooms. We would also like to have access to ladders / scaffolding to use or rent.
Also, would like to have hardware store, lumberyard, auto parts and grocery store nearby.
Grenada, Trinidad, Tobago, or areas south of the hurricane zone

Also concerned with safety issues being this close to Venezuela

Re: Searching for marina south of hurricane zone

I don’t think you are going to have a lot of choices.

We lay up in Grenada Marine but they have only 70 ton lift capacity.

So the only help I can give is to exclude one.

Powerboat Mutual or Peaks in Caguaramas are your only options that fit most of your requirements, but if you are afraid to get near Venezuela (8 miles) then you are sh*t out of luck as far as I know in the Eastern Caribbean.
Panama or Columbia may have places that might work, but I'm not familiar with those areas.
