Diy mellow boatyard near Baltimore?

Any suggestions for a good diy boatyard somewhere near Baltimore? I may need to pull my (37') mast. Need to do a small amount of glass work, maybe bottom paint (maybe not) and lots of small jobs. Would like a hose and an outlet nearby and a nice crowd. Is there anything?

You bet. Maryland Marina in Middle River. The people are so nice to work with there, nice facility, very laid back and you have a nice place to eat and have a beer right next door (Sunset Cove). Ask for Wayne.

Thanks that's great. Do they have a lift?

Any other suggestions?

They do have a lift and a very reasonably priced ship's store. They can order anything you want and get it there quick. I just redid the bottom of my Alberg 30 and couldn't be more pleased. Do as little or as much of the work you want. Good folks

Re: Diy mellow boatyard near Baltimore?

A few suggestions...

Oak Harbor Marina in Pasadena - talk to Ken. Old Bay Marina in Edgemere - talk to Brian. Youngs Boatyard in Edgemere - talk to Phil. All have a very laid back vibe and allow DIY.

Oak Harbor has a crane on site and Ken is a very experienced and reasonably priced rigger. He's also one of the biggest Harken dealers on the Chesapeake and can usually handily beat online sale prices on Harken.

I'm not sure what the crane situation is at Old Bay and Youngs. I believe Old Bay acquired a bucket lift last year but not sure if they can use it to pull the stick.

Excellent information as replacing the rigging and likely the furling gear is on our to-do list. Thank you.

Have heard lots of good things about Young's but no personal experience.

Re the ship store at maryland marina, do you have to buy supplies through them? Or it's just there as an option?

Old Bay Marine , Low cost DIY yard, You may need some extension cords and a hose or two but water and electric is available. There is a crane available next door (Ed will bring it over and pull your mast were ever the boat sits, think he charges $150 each way, you do all the prep work.

Someone was recommending Pasadena Boat Yard, anyone know anything about that? Said it was very cheap. I'm into cheap...

Re: Diy mellow boatyard near Baltimore?

sully75, I can give you lots of reasons to avoid Oak harbor Marina. let's just say your service will be a crap shoot as to whether you get what you need done right and at a decent price. Pasadena yacht yard has changed their service people several times, they lease the service for the yard. No experience with whoever is doing it now. I'm not sure if Young's can handle what you need. Call them and they will tell you if they can or not. Both Maryland marina and Old bay are good options. We spent a couple of decades in that area. Chuck

Ok I think I'm going with maryland marina. It seems to be the cheapest and is closest to where I'll be living.
