Seeking Good Yard for Rigging in Tampa Area

Hi, I'm a rigger just relocating to Tampa Bay from Maine and I'm looking for a yard to work with for steps and unsteps etc. Any ideas or recommendations? Thanks, Will

Salt Creek Marine is one of the few DIY yards left in St Pete. There are also a couple of yards in the Gulfport area of St Pete.

The only one I knew of on the Tampa side (Bahia Beach) was converted from a great yard into a failed condo development a couple of years ago... what a shame.

Good luck - there's enough of a marine community here that I'm sure you'll find something. Not to mention the Catalina /Endeavour Catamaran factories in Largo...

Try Brad Kadau at Paradise Yacht Services (727-327-3334). He has done good work for us over the years.

Good Luck.
