Ah yes the Edison memorial bridge at 55'. Good point, I forgot about that one. The other 3 are swing/ bascule. I actually was just at the fort Myers boat club and they seemed cool. Several people were doing bottom painting close to the wet slip were I was installing a engine. They have a two wash areas with a water filter/recycle system, probably a state environmental law thing. Maybe they would do that and you could paint it yourself. I asked about a haul so I could change a prop and they didn't have any problem with me doing my own work. No showers or anything so I didn't stay long. $1.50 a foot without shower was a bummer. Nice place it seems they were building a 5 star joint when the economy crashed and all progress stopped dead.

charlotte harbor boat storage in Placida at the top of the harbor, really nice clean yard with a good attitude and well set up for people living aboard on the hard while working on the boat.

+1 for Charlotte Harbor. But talk to them about your draft first. Low water levels in the harbor and canal during the winter can complicate access.
