Virgin Islands Dry Storage?

I am thinking about dry storing my boat (43' sail) from June through late-October) in the USVI/BVI corner of the Caribbean.

Does anyone have experience with a good yard there?

Nanny Cay, Tortola


Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour, Virgin Gorda (good, but less convenient)

Nanny Cay is a good suggestion.
Lots of various services right there as well.

Inedpendent Boat Yard / La Vida Marine Center on St Thomas is less expensive than those mentioned above.

Fajardo, Puerto Rico is another nearby option.

Beware - many people wish to store their boats on the hard during huricane season... so don't delay in making your reservation.

Personally, I prefer to let my boat ride-out a storm supported in a fluid rather than on rigid hard stands.
