Question Good boatyards in Tampa bay

I am thinking of booking in to Progressive Marine in Tampa Bay for summer storage etc.
Any comments regarding the yard?

Can't add anything to your choice so far. I do know that I've heard great things about Snead Island. Lots of cats back in the yard also.

You would be much wiser to run down to Snead Island Boat Works on the Manatee River. Much wiser...trust me.

My experience at Progressive was very poor. Overcharging, unauthorized work, belligerent attitude by yard owner. I later learned that the yard has a very poor reputation locally.
