Haul-out in Jacksonville, Fl

Last year someone gave me the name of a marina where they haul-out each summer (I lost the name). The prices were cheap, but he indicated that there is a waiting list. We will be passing thru J'ville next week and want to get on the list.

Can anyone give recommendations for cheap on-the-hard storage in or near J'ville?

Thanks
Roger & Evans

The only cheap place in that area is Green Cove Springs. In fact it's the only cheap place I know of on the whole east coast of FL. The waiting list has over a hundred names on it. There is a yard in St. Mary's GA that hauls a few boats - St. Mary's Boat Services 912 674 5802. If you want cheap storage on the east coast you have to go to NC. By the way if anyone knows a good cheap yard in FL. east coast please share it with us.

i once hauled out and ended up doing a MAJOR refit in st augustine.
http://www.staugustinemarine.com/
i had a wood boat and we found lots of rot, had to replace planking and i pulled the mast and rerigged; we were there for 2 months!
this was quite some time ago, but the yard was very happy with DIY, (which was already becoming extinct in florida and many yards would not haul us because it was a wood boat!); the manager was very encouraging and they matched west marine prices when we ordered supplies from them. it was a very productive haul out; we did all our own work and the yard really impressed me as honest and helpful.
i have also hauled twice at the glades, which is on the ockeechobee waterway; prices were good, but you are very much on your own out there and far from marine stores or shopping of any kind and any repair advise from the management is best ignored imo.

I'll second St Augustine Marine, I've hauled out with those guys and had a great experience. Very reasonable and cool with DIY.

I am at St. Augustine Marine now and although it is a good yard it is also an expensive one. The rates just went up to $12 per foot per month. That works out to $500 a month for a 40 ft. boat when the taxes are included. Not cheap in my book. This is for long term storage.

Thanks for the replies. Vasco...Green Cove Springs is the one. Hate to hear that the waiting list is that long, but we will get on it. Hopefully we will still be cruising when our namews come up!!

Thanks
Roger
