Dry storage for FL summer/hurricane season - deep draft

Hello,

I'm starting to think that dry storage for hurricane season is the ticket for me. I won't lose my slip for the rest of the year, hardly used the boat in summer because it's so hot/we travelled by plane instead and it would be one less to think about having the boat already good to go in case of a hurricane.

Willing to travel pretty much any where in FL. I live in Tampa but the boat is in Jupiter. So whatever is a safe, secure location that could let us do some work while it's on the hard would be great. The only restriction is we need 7'3" to get in and have 62' air draft.

What's the best bet so I can plan for 2022?

7’ 3” draft? Are you sure? If so, think your on your own.

You can work on your boat on the hard if its inside work. Outside work, other than cleaning is frowned upon. Cracker Boy across Taylor Creek allows you to work on the boat but doesn't have long term storage.
