Thanks for your responses on this. Firstly I should clarify that the mast
is not 68' but 56' - I meant the clearance from waterline to tip of mast
incl antenna's etc is 68'. So she is not the rocket ship I may have given you the illusion she could have been. Notwithstanding, she is a Crowther designed performance cruising cat - we did win the laid back Georgetown Regatta
in B multi fleet and 3rd overall in racing
St Augustine has been great. We have been there the past 3 seasons and next will be four so I was thinking of a change. Exploratory research
only. The hardstand
area is fine, very professional at lifting in and out, facilities just ok although we do not stay on the boat. Bathroom's leave much to be desired for anyone staying on their boat doing work. I believe they view the centre as a working environment
only. Having said that they have built an excellent lounging room with large TV, air conditioned, tea making, comfortable lounges etc and good wifi
. So they may well be looking at bathrooms next???
To me they are reasonable in cost however they do charge commission fees
should you want your own tradespeople working there. Also you cannot do your own antifouling.
I now may well look at the Chesapeake although this is further north than I need to be.
Again thanks for your feedback.
