Whystay,

I visited Riverside today. They are filled with boats seeking refuge from the hurricane and the marina sustained some damage to docks. On-the-hard is well populated.

Owner suggested you call and get latest status before solidifying your plans.

Re: Help! Recommendations for affordable liveaboard diy yard / marina in Florida?

Thank you all for your time & thoughts! After waiting out Matthew & following up on your suggestions, we narrowed our considerations down to Riverside in Ft Pierce & Charlotte Harbor/J & R Marine Services in Port Charlotte. We decided on J&R as it was every so slightly less expensive & our families have places in St Pete's & Marco Island. We were actually all set to ship her down to J&R this coming Monday, but there was a bit of a miscommunication with the shipping company with the timeline/quote & it's no longer plausible with our budget.. so a new set of searches begins.

Marathon Marina and Boatyard, (305) 743-6575. Haul-out, live-aboard dry, ample store and rental of anything you need. West Marine a few blocks away. Been there, done that. Will be there again, it's been 15 years since last.

Are there fixed bridges to pass under on the way in to Indiantown Marina??

Re: Help! Recommendations for affordable liveaboard diy yard / marina in Florida?

Apologies...I answered my own question by looking at their website. 56' at the lowest fixed bridge. Height of my mast...55'. I'm good as long as it is a low tide. I would probably use some moveable ballast to heel the boat over a few degrees to give me some wiggle room. Great thread. Thank you!
