Haul out in northern Queensland

Looking for an affordable haulout in northern Queensland, Townsville to Port Douglas or further north. September to April.

Our aluminium alloy 14.4m x 7.3m Mumby Cybercat prefers to be hauled and stored. Insurance companies are a bit of an obstacle, but may consider dry storage with cyclone tie-downs.

Anybody cracked that nut?

Re: Haul out in northern Queensland

You might look at Gladstone, I know it's farther south, but Gorjac's (or however you spell it) has anchors for tying boats down. Plus, it's inland from Curtis Is. and the cyclones tend to follow the island. Originally, I was thinking about Cairns, but you'd have to do something mangrovey there. IME, April is a little early to think of being cyclone free. Really, for cyclone safety, you should be south of Cape Capricorn.

The weather cares naught for us, please be careful.

Bundaberg but that got wiped last cyclone from flooding.

Australians dont haul out for cyclone season, generally, so prices may not be affordable.
