Do-It-Yourself Boat Yard in Clear Lake / Kemah TX Area

I am looking at a project sailboat located in the Clear Lake area, near Houston. There is no way I can relocate this boat to my area soon, so I need some ideas about a storage boat yard in the area. I am not planning on doing any major work there, just securing and removing valuables (e.g., outboard). Any ideas would be appreciated.

Re: Do-It-Yourself Boat Yard in Clear Lake / Kemah TX Area

Starship Marina comes to mind if all you want is mast up, dry storage of a trailer sailor. Clear Lake Marine Center allows more diy work but limits that to activity that doesn't produce dust or debris. They also have a lift so if your boat isn't trailerable this is your only ticket on the lake for diy. I think Marsh Marine does mast down storage but I'm not sure about that one and they probably aren't diy. The Wharf has boat and trailer storage but it would have to be mast down and probably no longer than around 25' loa. Enterprise Marina seems to have a large trailer storage yard in a lot just east of the marina and I've seen a few sailboats in there with mast up but they may be derelicts. And finally Seabrook Shipyard has a dry storage area but I'm not sure if their travel lift goes over there. It looks like mostly smaller stuff on trailers.

Thanks, Garrett - I used a fellow named Bob Marsh to move a boat several years ago - might be at Marsh Marine. Don't need to do any scraping, grinding, or painting. Mainly just securing for a month or two. The mast is already down on her.

There is room for storage at Seabrook Marina. There is a lift that you use yourself to put your boat on your trailer.

What about Payco Marina in Galveston, its been a while since I was there, but there seemed to be several boats in the yard in various states of repair.
