Best Chesapeake lift/hardstand rates?

I'm on the Annapolis side. Are the rates better on the Eastern Shore? Anyone have any marinas with good prices/facilities to recommend?

I've found the prices down the bay a bit to be a lot more reasonable. How do these compare for you?

I am at Young's Boatyard. From what I have seen in the area he has pretty good rates and Phil is a great guy. Not too far from you I don't think.

You might look at Jennings on the Great Wicomico near Reedville – used to keep a boat there on the hard, off and on over several years… they used to have a railway, but now just a big travel-lift… don’t think they have a website, but is a fairly complete facility as far as boat repair (but little else) with modest rates (can’t recall what they are, but noticeably less than I’m paying at Colonial Beach which certainly isn’t Annapolis level); lots of sailboats on stands even if they are a bit off the beaten path and the actual dockage small…

boat yards

I can second the positive reference on Jennings Boatyard in Reedville, VA. Great place, good folks, reasonable and you can work on your boat.

I think we all need to look at bestboatyard.com I found out that they have a do it your self yard (if you want). They do have the best rates $3.00 a foot to haul out,and two weeks to work in the yard (on your own boat) with no charge.

Last time I was at Young's he did not have a travel lift that could haul a Tayana 37 but that has been a while now. Best family owned marina with great service, good prices, do it yourself or have it done and very well protected in all weather conditions is Oak Harbor Marina on Rock Creek. Tell Ken that Chuck recommended them. You won't regret it and you will meet some very friendly Tayana owners.

He can haul a Caliber 40 and a couple other boats that size, so I suspect a Tayana 37 would be fine. When were you around here last?

I was by there last week. Nice folks, lots of space, with water and power.
On the downside, not accessible in weather, no wind protection and in/out only at high tide. You need to call to set up best time for haulout. But those are small problems when you consider the prices. It should be a fantastic place for DIY'ers.
