Haul out in Fla. Lift that is 28' wide

Heading to Fla. from St Thomas. Is there a lift in Fla (around fort Pierce onward north) that can lift a 50'-28ft wide cat? I know Charleston has one for big money and I need to do my own repair.

Harbortown in Ft Pierce has a 30' lift and last I heard allows DIY.

These also have lifts and/or trailers that can haul a 28' beam, but not sure about the work part.

Didn't say if you're power or sail - if sail, I believe you need to pull the mast to use the big lift at GCS.

St Augustine Marine Center. They use an under lift with tractor. Your weight would be the only limit. Only 1 draw bridge and no fixed bridges between the inlet and the SAMC. They will let you do your own repairs with the exception of bottom work.

Does anyone know of a haul out for a 80' x 40' cat in Florida or Caribbean?

At that width you are looking at RMK at the Miami River but with a sink platform

I recommend Port Canaveral. This yard is also known locally as "Scorpion Marine". They'll haul you and let you do your own work (except your own bottom job). They're reasonably priced.

Marine Center in St. Augustine has a long history of terrible complaints. I've personally been screwed over by them and they were discourtesy while they did it. I've spoken to many others with the same story and you can do your reviews online. Go there and beware.

Great people at Whiticars. They are located within Harbortown Marina. Ask to talk to Tom...he is very helpful...runs Whiticar’s service. I’ve been there several times with a cat. Hey...tell him Craig sent you

Sailor911-Lauderdale Marine Center can handle you. You'll have to go up The New River which shouldn't't be a problem for you. There're be 5 bridges that will be required to open for you, they don't operator though from Mon-Fri during morning or evening rush hour traffic. But other than that 24/7, almost forgot -one railroad bridge also.

I didnít have an issue with St Augustine marine center. They pretty much just hauled us and launched us with some rigger work though.

Re: Haul out in Fla. Lift that is 28' wide

I called Harbor town 6 weeks ago and they had no room at the inn. We did haul out at Cape Canaveral/Scorpion but I'd be surprised if they still had room. The other suggestions I don't know about. One other last chance if your in a real bind is Lauderdale Marine Center. I had berthed there for a week earlier this year and thought they might want some seasonal business. When I checked they still charged the same rate - $300 per DAY. Then two weeks ago they started sending me e-mails about doing a seasonal haul-out so maybe reality has set in.
