Cheap storage

I am in Nassau on my 29 foot sailboat, and would like to store the boat from July-November. Does anyone know a good and not too expensive place that is relatively close by (in the Bahamas or the west coast of florida). I know there are some places in the Abacos, but I think they are already full up. Thanks.

Try Nick and Caroline the BASRA people. They are in Coral Harbor (Back side of New Providence). Try contacting them as BASRA Coral Harbor on Ch 72 or go to the Cruisers Lunch on Thursday to meet them personally.

your cheapest storage would be in the Indiantown area. Green Cove Springs up the St. John's River is cheaper but is full with a long waiting list. These are both on the EAST coast of FL. There is storage available at Green Turtle Cay and Marsh Harbour, both in the Abacos.

Thanks for the info everybody. I called Nick and Caroline, and they have a 40 foot minimum and charge 400/month. Does anyone know about Freeport, Georgetown or the Miami/Lauderdale area? Since time is not a huge issue for me, i would like to find a better deal, if that is possible.

You won't get anything cheaper in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale. You might try Georgetown Marine in Masters Harbour.

One other thought, if you want to leave it in the water you can get a mooring in Hole 3 in Georgetown.
