. It's a great place for DIY and probably the best deal in the area.
BUT, it is a small town and at least 20 miles to the nearest West Marine or any other boat store. The marina can order supplies for you and they get a pretty good deal with their port supply discount.
We've been here for a week, and I really like this yard. Lots of hardworking DIYers getting things done and boats launched quickly. The price
is right - $0.40 per foot per day for the work area and $4/foot per month for storage
. I like that this place seems to be a good "hurricane hole." Thanks for the info you provided. Yes, West Marine, Home Depot, Harbor Freight Tools are a bit of a drive, but it's nice to use the air conditioning
in the car in the afternoon and get out of the yard for a bit.
