Yard in San Francisco that will allow owner bottom paint

I am looking for a yard in San Francisco (or somewhere in that area) that has the ability to haul and block a 40 sailboat that will allow me to paint my bottom. Anyone got any ideas?

You might call Berkeley Marine Center.

Berkeley Marine center at the berkeley marina allows DIY as does Napa Marina. You have to use the sanders/vac at berkeley by that was only $15 a day I think (4 years ago). Good folks there.

They allowed me to use my own paint there though. Napa requires that you buy their paint. Napa's a bit of a haul and out in the boondocks, about 9 miles from downtown napa.

I called Berkeley Marine Center a moment ago to get a progress report on our boat and asked about their scheduling for a 40 haul out for DIY work on the hard. Shannon told me they are booked until June. Hope this helps.

Re: Yard in San Francisco that will allow owner bottom paint

Thank you so much everyone! I made a couple of calls after posting this and was directed to Berkley also. I called them and they seem like really great folks... over the phone anyway. I am currently in the Seattle area. I am going to be heading south in August. So I am just going to head up into Lake Union for a couple of days before heading south to kill all of the junk currently attached to my bottom. Then I should be good for the trip to San Francisco. The kind folks at Berkley have pencilled me in for the first week of September. Should all work out great!! Thank you for your replies!!!!
