Do it Yourself Boatyard - Florida West Coast

Hello, I am looking for a good, inexpensive (relative term), do it yourself boat yard on the West coast of Florida. I'd like to haul, redo the bottom, clean it up and store it until she sells. Thoughts?

Thanks,

Mark

I used appollo beach marina, You may have to pull the stick for him to lift you as the lift is wwII vintage, but a great little yard. The owners name is Phil and the yard is very low key.

I was just in a conversation with a couple of Tampa local boaters. They mentioned that Shell Point down in Ruskin was doing haul outs for $300 round trip regardless of size and they are a DIY yard.

I don't have firsthand knowledge, but they are on my list to call.
