Thanks Halberdier, this is very helpful indeed. The west coast of NFLD seems like a reasonable target to me. Clearly these service centres are geared toward the commercial fishing folks. Were there any special challenges in getting them to take you on? I assume you contacted them ahead of time. What about the availability of jackstands? We're a full-keeler (6 foot draft). We sit easily on the keel, so all we need is a solid base and good stands.While there are few yacht clubs and "marinas" in Newfoundland and Labrador there are several service centres each with a travel lift. My 36 fiberglass 5 ft draft ketch spent the winter of 2010/2011 at the service centre in Port Saunders (on the West side of northern Newfoundland.
