Puerto Rico hurricane season haul out/live aboard

Hello,
Will any marinas in PR haul out a small sailing cat and store for hurricane season and also allow live aboard for at least a few days to prep the boat? Reasonable $$?
Thanks.

The huge Puerto del Rey Marina south of Fajardo isn't too bad on price, but will not let you live-aboard when on the hard. You can rent a house for small money on a weekly basis nearby though.
I've heard that Isleta Marina is both inexpensive and allows live-aboards when on the hard, although they never responded to my inquiries last year.

Yeah, I never got a response from Puerto Del Rey either, despite a couple of calls.

Re: Puerto Rico hurricane season haul out/live aboard

have you considered Dewey, Culebra? i have not been there for a storm but if you cannot get a haulout it looked protected, somebody will correct me if i am wrong on that

how small is the cat? trailerable? or improvised trailerable? maybe the seatow or towboat office there can recommend something, good luck, looks like irma will be a bad hurricane, hopefully not a cat4 as forecast

This is the bay where Fatty Goodlander lost Carlotta. Not that it's a bad bay, but it is open to the west and is not what I would consider a hurricane hole. Wonderful, friendly place Culebra, and I highly recommend boaties explore it.

Thanks.
I'd suggest you check out Nanny Cay on Tortola, or the yard in Spanish Town on Virgin Gorda. Both allow liveaboards although VG has holes dug out where the boats are strapped down securely.
