seasonal wet storage

I am planning to sail my 40' motor sailor south via the ICW early this fall and wet store it until after the xmas/new year holidays. I'll pick up the boat early 2016 and spend several months cruising then return it to wet storage for the next summer. I'm looking for a safe, affordable marina or boatyard, preferably DIY, in north Florida or Georgia in order to keep insurance premiums down. The boat draws 5.5' and has a mast hight of 50'. Does anyone have any recommendations for a no frills yard or marina I might contact?

Re: seasonal wet storage

Look for dry storage, it eliminates nearly all the problems and worries.

Re: seasonal wet storage

Best place for wet storage is Brunswick Landing marina in GA.

Re: seasonal wet storage

Thank you Vasco, that was the kind of advice I was hoping to get. I'll give them a call. Any other suggestions from anyone for marinas or yards will be greatly appreciated.

Re: seasonal wet storage

I second Brunswick Landing. Well protected and there are lots of other boats there doing the same thing. Prices aren't as bad as Florida too.
