Haul out options in Tampa Bay Area

Looking for options to haul out my Seawind 1000 close to the Tampa Bay area where my brother lives. Need to sand and paint bottom and change fluids in the outboards. Hope to find a place to pay for pressure wash and sanding and I will use my own paint. Also store for later part of hurricane season.
I know about the places around Ft. Myers but it is a longer drive. Maybe Sarasota is as far South as I would like to go, but I am flexible. Also happy to go North past Tarpon Springs and even Chiefland.

Suggestions welcome.

Re: Haul out options in Tampa Bay Area

Not sure of any places in Sarasota that can haul out a cat.

In St. pete there is Sailor's Wharf, but also not sure how wide their lift is.

Re: Haul out options in Tampa Bay Area

I'm hauling out Monday at Pitman Marine on the Anclote River, Tarpon Springs. I don't know about their travel lift but I'm told that owners are alowed to work on their boats. Even then you need to check. For example, they are letting me pull my chain plates.

I just looked, 75 tons, 20 ft beam is their limit

Pitman is a good yard. Not sure if they will let you paint. We are at Progressive in St Pete right now. no diy. Fair pricing and no daily yard fee. 26 ft max beam, only place in town.

Re: Haul out options in Tampa Bay Area

There is another yard in the manatee near Palmetto with a good rep. Have no idea if you can work on your own boat.

Re: Haul out options in Tampa Bay Area

Snead Island Boatworks in Palmetto will not let you perform your own work. But they are good, competent yet pricy. They do have stroage for long term.

Cortez Cove Marina can and does haul Cats, and you may negeotiate with them. You will probably find them reasonable. I have my boat on the hard there at this time. Cortez, Fl is between Sarasota and St. Pete.

Re: Haul out options in Tampa Bay Area

If pittman in Tarpon Springs, lift is wide enough, they are great people, my friend and I did a pull in January and we did a large portion of the work on both sailboats, including some paint work. they will work with you very well. Actually they were glad that we wanted to do most of the work.

I just hauled my boat at Pitmans in March. Dave and David were great to work with.

Re: Haul out options in Tampa Bay Area

You could also call Elite Marine, next to Sailors Wharf- Carl: 727-656-8718 and 727-249-4009. Hard to get them sometimes, but they did fine by me. I don't think they allow you to work on the boat, but they are good. Also, Steve Smith Mobile Rigging (SSMR) works with them, and is next door, and is great. Embree marine is next to them, but they charged me $1200 to put up my 2 masts on my 38' Spray, so they are a rip.
