Recommendations for Boatyards in Tampa / St. Pete Area

Need to have my Taswell 44's bottom soda blasted, epoxy coated, and bottom painted. Looking for a yard in the Tampa/St. Pete area.

Will have the yard do the work, but would like to find a place where they can use an airless sprayer to apply the undercoat and bottom paint.

Any suggestions?

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.

FWIW...

Another boat yard I have used for exactly what you want is Embrey Marine in St. Petersburg. Tell Chad I recommended his yard.

Re: Recommendations for Boatyards in Tampa / St. Pete Area

Several years ago we used Progressive Boat Yard in St. Pete (about 100 miles from home). They did a good job but it was a hassle. Because of their location, they required us to remove ALL electronics from the boat and take them with us. Of course, this meant re-installing everything when they put her back in the water which delayed our departure.
