I going to make suggestion where you can work on your boat at Salt
Creek Marina,, which is just south of downtown St. Petersburg
They have lift
boat down, but requirement is you have to buy their paint
bottom of your boat, no tool loaning. I was there last year for three month and price
was 600.00 dollars month. There aren't too many places in this area were you can work on your own boat. I think this is closest one for subrounding areas you are looking for. Also there are places to get parts
for your motor
if need be in downtown (yachtpower Supply, Yanmar
dealer is little way from there. The man to see is Keith Donaldson if you need sail repair in building above office of Salt
Creek, he does really good work on Sail or replace sail.I would never used anyone else and prices are reasonable
If you need fiberglass
repair, there is Fiberglass
Coating Inc. everything in fiberglass you will ever need is there. It 20 minutes drive from Salt Creek. If you need rigging
repair is next door over. So I hope this help you out because what ever you need it is close by for just about anything for sail boat.
Salt Creek Marina
107 15th Avenue S.E.
It is easy to get to Salt Creek and depth
is deep enough, so no going aground.
You have to go EAST of Sunshine Skyway, stay in the mark areas, Tampa Bay is very shallows.
If I think of any other things to help you out I will send another message.
I hope this really help you out, smooth sailing.
