Re: Jacksonville FL DIY yards

Sadler Point Marina is looking like a good choice. I'm familiar with the area and my daughter works just down the road so it works out well and saves a lot of drive time compared to GCS.

thanks

Yes, I should have mentioned that too. When I was talking to them earlier this year she did day that you want to check for the schedule ahead of time. They can get backed up. Driving by the other day I saw several open spots but that can always change quickly of course.

Re: Jacksonville FL DIY yards

I have flexibility as I plan to be in the area for the holidays. The other part of my planning now is if I use sadler I need a place to store once I'm done my bottom work etc as I wouldn't want to leave it there sitting at $1/ft per day

Well went here because I needed 1-2 hours of time in the pit with the crane. That ended up costing $1658! The most disorganized uncommunicated place I've seen. Avoid it at all costs, because it will cost you otherwise.

Re: Jacksonville FL DIY yards

Well I just spent 5 days hauled at Sadler Point Marina and they were a world improvement over St John's Boat Works. They were always friendly and helpful and I never felt they anti DIY. Communication was always easy and in the end the bill was as expected without any surprises. And location wise as a traveling cruiser you would be a fool to haul out at St John's, or the hell hole of Green Cove Springs, over Sadler just due to the things you could walk to while there.
