Re: Recommendations for boatyards in Tampa/St. Pete area
You might try Snead Island Boat Works in Palmetto, on the Manatee River in South Tampa Bay (941-722-2400). Gary Alderman has been taking care of our boats for 20+ years and the yard does good work. As for your other post regarding a marina, take a look at ActiveCaptain which lists the marinas
in the Tampa area on their interactive charts
