Recommended boatyards Ft. Laud. hurricane storage?

We're thinking about sailing the boat up to Florida next spring and putting her in a boatyard through hurricane season and to have some work done.

I did an internet search for boatyards in Ft. Lauderdale, and was quickly overwhelmed. We're looking for a yard that can haul a catamaran and do various electrical, cosmetic and mechanical work etc. over a three month hurricane season. We're looking for someplace close to the Bahamas, as that's the direction we'll be coming from. So we don't, for example, want to have to sail around to Tampa.

Does anyone have any personal recommendations as far as boat yards with storage and travel lifts that do good work?

I bet that's a pretty common question. How bout boat yards to avoid?

Lauderdale Marine Center would be best for you I think.
