Where can you work on your own boat in NSW?

Hi Everyone
This is a very Australian post, but I am trying to find somewhere to work on my own boat in NSW? I'm looking for somewhere to haul out my 9m catamaran (16' wide), do the antifouling, service the engine and touch up the paint on the topsides. Nowhere in Pittwater will allow any of this-- does anyone know somewhere in NSW where I can get her out of the water for a few days to work on her? As opposed to paying an arm and a leg to pay someone else to do it....

Thanks
Phil

I have a feeling you may be able to do that here in Bermagui

Bermagui Marine Services | SLIPWAY | REPAIRS | SHOP

Give them a call. Can certainly handle your boat size.

Cheers,
Mick.

The Yamba marina was fine with DIY a couple of years ago, and the Harwood slipway was good for longer term projects.
