Trimaran Haulout in British Columbia?

Hey folks,

Anyone know of a yard within sailing range of Vancouver, BC that can do a haulout of a 39-foot Searunner trimaran? My beam is 23 feet overall.

My boat does not have the attachment points for a crane, so it would need to be done with a sling.

Ideally I'd like to find a full-service/self-service place that I could put her up on the hard for a week or so, employ professional help for some of the tasks (through-hulls, zincs, maybe painting) but still do the majority of the grunt work myself... or at least assist, I'm still learning.

Thoughts? Recommendations? Places to avoid?

Mine needs to be hauled out at Shelter Island Marina Richmond
You can sail anywhere on the planet and never be more than 7 miles from land - it might be straight down, but its never more than seven miles

Drew, How was the trip? This is Astoria Oregon. You can call port of Astoria if your interested. There are few things going for it. It is really close to my favorite marine a block away. There is plenty of room, and all the do it yourself you could ask for....It looks like plenty of width to haul your 37', I hauled my 34' on much less in Mexico.
