Happy Sailing!
Thanks for the info , what do you use for paper charts

I was forced to leave mine in Salinas for 18 months. Worked out great. Two hooks, lots of chain. I stripped everything off the deck, dodger/bimini/solars/wind gen/sails. Left the dink deflated covered and lashed on the bow. Got a ride to shore. This is not something i would do regularly. Due to some unfortunate circumstances I had to come back to RI. I flew back to check on it every 6 months. But finally after 18 months I had some time off and was able to sail her back to RI.

And puerto Rico is better then nanny cay/spanishtown or independant boat yard

Cheaper too
We are also looking for a place to leave our sailboat in 2014. Wondering if you would mind sharing the "why's" of which place is better. Is it just the cost are or there other issues we should know about.
