West Florida Boat Yards

Can anyone recommend a reasonable boat yard in the Bradenton-Sarasota-Tampa Bay area? I have used the one in Ruskin but I understand they no longer exist. No one seems to allow do-it-yourself anymore.
I apologize if this is the incorrect forum heading to post this type of request.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Re: West Florida Boat Yards

There is a do-it-yourself yard in Gibsonton and also Salt Creek Boatworks in St. Petersburg. I know Salt Creek and they are excellent - I only know the Gibsonton one via internet, although I maybe replacing a tilt motor there in the near future. I realize this is a request for information from a long time ago, however, I think many people still need to know where to go to find help and also be able to do the lions share of the work themselves.
