Here is copy of my post about shell point marina.
Shell Point Marina in Ruskin Fl is letting me live aboard while Iím on the hard/DIY yard status.
Some people move to slippage from hard which Iíve been offered but plan to move on in a few months as Iíll have big/heavy stuff done I canít do in a slip/swinging in a mooring
$1 a foot a day.
$5.50 a foot for haul out/blocking...same fee for splashing...or $11 a foot for haul/blocking/splash...
$35 month sanitation fee
$75 a month liveaboard
fee if you stay on your boat
(very few do, most use contractors to do work)
If you provide your own bottom paint
there is a $75 gallon tariff which encourages you to buy your paint
from them. Prolly not much more to simply let them prep/paint your boat
Forks for racked boats/bigger charter
boats being spotted onto trailers. Another launch/ramp for reasonable sized trailers as well as travel lift
w/16í beam max load, theyíve pulled 60í stink pots and currently thereís a 55 SeaRey across from me. Seen them splash Beneteau
51í Oceania and biggest cat was a Gemini
32 which I believe is biggest cat they can haul w/travel lift/certainly as travel lifts splash basin is 18í
GatedMarina with for hire maintenance
yard & offers DIY
yard as well as rack storage
(most of their business with maintance of said racked boats) as well as some slips w/some liveaboards (20?)
, two other 1/2 baths as well, itís a racked boat power boaters marina essentially so lots of oowerboaters coming and going, with some dockage and slips, has a pavilion with tables/grills & decent sunset view of obscured St Pete across Tampa Bay.
Middle of nowhere as far as Tampa area (its 4 miles to US Hwy 41 where town begins) no laundry
on site and small marina/yard no bar/restaurant on site.
Very very challenging channel to get in here (why itís not a sailors yard and the few sailboats here at docks donít leave) at 5í4 draft
and 1.3 high tide I was bumping muddy/sandy ground more than a few times coming in.
Theyíll refer to you people who can pilot/assist you if youíd like, these people heeled a 8í draft
blue point yacht in here, itís still here so this is a fact.
I have power, can work
on boat 8am till 7pm daily.
Theyíre letting me park my Harley and car at my boat, use my charcoal grill
at boat as well.
If you want bare bones smaller yard w/personable atmosphere issues addressed on per issue basis not a one size fits all rule
book in sleepy quite place outta the way this is it!!!
