Leaving my Boat in a Boatyard for 10 month

Will head south as soon the Weather is favorable. Plan to sail mostly offshore from Victoria as far as I can go in 6-8 weeks down the Westcoast. Then I plan to houl the Boat out at a Boatyard and leve it there for my next leg in 2012.

I am interested in knowledge/experience based recomendations.

The Boatyard must be considered a safe facility so I dont have to worry to much that my Boat is broken into and stuff stolen.

Any Boatyards from Mexico to Chile.

Thanks in advance for every reply.

Never hire someone to do something you can do yourself better.

none that I can think of that would be safe to leave your boat unattended. I've talked to boatowners who hired a local to guard their boat and returned to find it striped.

Have a look at the bottom half of this page: The Boatyards Guide
"It is not so much for its beauty that the Sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Re: Leaving my Boat in a Boatyard for 10 month

When I was in Colon on the East side of the Panama Canal a few years ago there were a few boats left there on the hard, they seemed to be well looked after. The Balboa Yacht club on the Pacific side burned down in 1999, very sad, it was a unique place but you could call the Panama Yacht Club at +507 6616 2408, or you could transit the canal and keep your boat in Colon for the Winter. The Caribbean would appeal to me much more than the South American Pacific coast anyway. Alternative option for me would be Callao, Peru. There's a great Yacht club there, I'm sure you could negotiate a relatively cheap and very safe hard storage deal. Yacht Club Peruano
