Looking for a storage space on the hard for 40' Trawler

In GA, SC or NC. Far enough south I don't have to mess with winterization. On the hard, safe from hurricanes. Any suggestions where I can accomplish these goals and what the cost might be?

Thanks

I think you need to get further south not to worry about winterization. The freeze zone probably goes at least into north Florida.

Re: Looking for a storage space on the hard for 40' Trawler

I'm not an expert on this, but I think for it to be cold enough to hurt the boat it has to be well below freezing, but I'm no expert.

I've heard Florida is not cruiser friendly and for sure not a good place to be when the blows strike, but again I'm no expert.

If I buy this boat, I have to put her someplace safe while we wait for my wife's visa to come through. That could be sometime the way they give preference to everyone except citizens and honest folk.

Re: Looking for a storage space on the hard for 40' Trawler

My brother lives in Jacksonville and tells me in Jan the temps get down into the low 20's on the cold nights. The daytime temps will get into the 50 degree range. That of couse is during a cold spell.

Now - I have an outboard powered runabout boat. It can sit out in 10 degree weather as long as no water is left anywhere in the engine and the engine is fogged.

I'm not a Floridian, I have no idea how cold it gets there, but I guess Jacksonville being about as far north as you can get would be colder than Key West. I just want the old girl safe from blows and to be ready for me when the time comes to leave. All without costing me a kings ransom, ya' know?

To be safe from hurricanes you basically need to take it inland... 100 miles or more. Look for 150 ft above mean sea level for the local airport's ground level.

You might consider Anchors Away Boatyard (website) in Hampstead, NC. They allow owners to work on their boats. Free haul out & $250 monthly on the hard, at last check. You will need to winterize! gts1544 - George

fwiw, there is nowhere on the East Coast that is "safe" from hurricanes, its is all a matter of risk and preparation.
