Haulout in Chesapeake

Does anyone out there have any recommendations for a haulout and storage facility in the Chesapeake area? We have a Maxim 38 cat, 21ft beam, and may decide to head north to the USA (currently in Curacao) by the middle of next year and put the boat up for sale so need it stored somewhere, and for insurance reasons above 36N. I'd be grateful for any info and particularly recommendations. Cheers!

It depends on whether you want to do the work yourself or a full work yard. We are currently in Solomons, MD and Zanheisers can haul but they are not a self help yard. Or freinds on Rhapsody a seawind 1200 hauled and the the bottom done. They do excellent work and really take care of the boat during the process. I also thought thier rate was resonable. There is also washburns. I haven't yet confirmed but I saw they had hauled a Manta 42 and they are a self help. There are some others and Since in the spring I need a bottom job I will be looking around for other facilties.

Thanks for the info Bil, you might remember you helped me out with some email advice some time ago. We usually like to do our own work, but on reflection we may not even need to haul in the U.S. as we'll have done that previously. All we really need is somewhere secure and hopefully cheap to leave the boat for a while, possibly afloat.

Several brokers in the Chesapeake have dockage for listed catamarans, but they charge. While you may get more exposure from a non-exclusive listing with several Agencies, Being 'just down the dock' may get you more lookers.

Go to pleasure cove marina, It will take up to a 24' 6" beam boat and you can do the work yourself or have them do it for you. It's where most the upper bay cats go.

I do remember you and we still peak at your site every now and then wishing it was us out there doing the writing rather than here doing the reading.

Sandy,

I compared Pleasure Cove to Herrington a few weeks ago and went with the former. Herrington has a nasty habit of raising its rates at will. Expect to get hauled, power-washed, blocked and stored at Pleasure Cove for the cost of storage only at Herrington.

You might want to look into the yards in Deltaville, VA. I am certain that some of them can pull cats and they may be less expensive than Annapolis area.

Good point. Hawaya. I've been hauling at Herrington for 12 years because of habit and because West Marine is on the property. My boat truck knows the way there, but I'll have to go check out Pleasure Cove. I'll discuss it with truck.

Sandy,

I found Pleasure Cove's prices a better deal as I hauled out in mid-October and they required a fixed price for everything until as late as April 1. Five and one half months at Herrington Harbor with the probability of a rate hike wasn't competitive; but if you are hauling out now it may be a better financial choice.

It also depends on what services you need. Pleasure Cove does not offer mast stepping services at the moment, for example. As others have mentioned, many multi owners have selected Pleasure Cove. Actually, I think the multihulls outnumber the monohulls! As such, I have gained some educational value given the variety of designs -- an unexpected perk.

Michael
