Maybe someone else knows of a place, but I suspect you are going to have to make other living arrangements while your boat is out of the water
There's a boat works in the Salt
Creek area of St. Petersburg (I think it was "Salt Creek") that allowed someone in my club to live on their boat while they worked on it.
After I got my boat and lived aboard, Snug Harbor in or near Indian Rocks Beach, FL allowed me to stay on the boat for a week while they worked on it. That was a year ago last December. I don't know if Snug Harbor allows you to work on your boat but my friends from the club did do their own work.
