Looking for north Florida hurricane season storage

i'm new to the forum, with plans to move my Allied Princess ketch down the ICW in May and store her in the north Florida area for the summer months and I am looking for any suggestions, recommendations, anyone may have, I prefer to store her on the hard where DIY would be allowed.
Any tips on the ICW from the Narragansett Bay Area to northern Florida would also be welcome.
Thanks

I like these people. Green Cove Springs Marina - The Cruiser's Homeport

While checking Green Cove Springs, right next door is Holland Marine (Tom Holland 904-284-3349). I have had work performed there as well as luanching my boat from delivery.

Both marinas are in an old Navy hurricane hole repair facility.

I'm sure that there are many places around Jacksonville that may fit your needs, but if you would like to stop a little farther north, my favorite DIY boatyard is near Saint Marys, GA. It is St. Marys Boat Services on the North River just off the St. Marys River. Rocky Smith is the owner. It is not the Ritz but it is a good honest family owned yard. Their prices are very reasonable and they have contractors available and will work with you to help complete any project you may have.
The phone number is: 912 674-5804.

Re: Looking for north Florida hurricane season storage

Several years ago I had good luck with Riverside Marina in Ft. Pierce. OFFICIAL PAGE - RIVERSIDE MARINA, Inc.

That may be a little farther south than you want. And since it's been several years I can't comment about the relative costs.

Another vote for Green Cove Springs - they have a good secure area for those leaving boats, happy for you to work on your own boat in their yard, friendly and helpful staff.

I've never stayed at Green Cove Springs Marina but I've been there by car and read their website. I think it would be worth checking into. Look on active captain for reviews.

Immediately to the south of St Mary's Inlet is Tiger Point Marina, just up Egan's Creek. Great place, great rates, and the owner is first class. DIY is OK as long as you know how to act.

Re: Looking for north Florida hurricane season storage

Green Cove Springs is farther way from the coast if a storm is brewing. The affects will be far less and you should look at insurance considerations if your boat is insured. We also like Tiger Point and have had work done there with excellent results. But you are right on the coast. Tiger Point has a special trailer with cradles for storage and tie downs in the storage yard. But check to make sure you can work on the boat there. Because of Tiger Points unique storage facilities, some insurance companies will discount or not charge a higher rate during storm season. Chuck

Re: Looking for north Florida hurricane season storage

If you decide on Tiger Point and DIY work they charge you $25 per day for you to work on your boat in addition to your monthly fee.. This was as of 2 years ago.
