Re: DIY yard in Near Vero and Boca

Twice I've used Cracker Boy at Ft. Pierce, they're ok, but like to charge you lots for materials. Max draught probably 7' at springs. If they've got the same rigger as in 2012, check his work very carefully.

Worst Marine and a Publix within walking distance. Ace Hardware nearish too.

Don't have anything to do with Whiticar Marine across the creek. Fecking nightmare...

I'll second the thoughts on whiticar. Riverside is cheaper but a disorganized mess. Cracker boy is more organized, more room to work but more expensive.
