DIY boatyard in South Carolina?

I'm hoping for some advice on a DIY boatyard in SC. I recently called several yards around Charleston and the only one I could find allowing DIY was Charleston City Boatyard. They quoted $3.50/ft per day, and no monthly or seasonal options. I'm looking for a DIY boatyard I can haul out and work on a boat on weekends for a season. I've looked around and apparently SC has stringent regulations on yards, and therefore there aren't many who allow you to DIY. I really don't want to move the boat to NC or Georgia, so any advice would be appreciated. As well as any I should avoid like the plague.

I checked through most of those posts, unfortunately, they mostly covered Florida and NC. The ladies island marina was new info for me, I'll check them out today, any other recommendations or warnings are appreciated!

Ladys Island is a marina only. Try Sail Harbor in Savannah

Re: DIY boatyard in South Carolina?

You might try Detyens ship yard in Charleston. Other than that there is one in Adams creek but no work on weekends, only m-f 9-5.
I saw that Brunswick GA has a travel lift next to the marina but don’t know if the marina operates it.

Re: DIY boatyard in South Carolina?

I suppose,depending where you are or want boat to be-search local commercial establishments that have plenty of space (power,water hose)

Don't know if you'll live on it while on the hard(?)( night watchman Lol )

ask if you could trailer boat,after making deal ( rent ),
& put on cradle where they choose

Haul out/in is a wash on cost- just the trailering & cradle(boat hauler will have this)

prolly more beneficial this depending how long out of water though you'ld prolly need some form of liability coverage


All The Best

Re: DIY boatyard in South Carolina?

Anywhere in SC would be fine, but I would prefer the low state as it is quicker to get to from our house. The boat is 42 feet, so non-trailer-able, and I would only stay on it over the weekend while I do the work. New thru-hulls, bottom paint, various upgrades, and I want to rewire her, but that can be done in the water. This will be a long term situation, so I'm hoping to find somewhere that will let me store her on the hard and do the work on weekends. Didn't even think of liability coverage, thanks for the info, one more thing to worry about.
