No, but I was hauled out last year and S/V Basik from Washington was next to me in Napa, Ca. You can do your own work there. The weather is good. They have a great chandlery too. Great yard

Canal boat yard still advertises DIY

Home

Haven't been there in years. Last time I was there they had strict rules. Tenting for any sanding, tarp under the boat. None of my tools, sanders, vacuum, etc. passed their requirements. I had to rent everything. Easiest was to rent from them to make sure I had the right stuff.

You might try La Conner Maritime Services. They are pretty strict about any work that can result in groundwater pollution, but try to accommodate customers' needs.

I think them, Boat Haven in Pt Townsend, Canal in Seattle, and one of the Anacortes yards are the only ones left in the state.

I had a good experience at Hylebos, but they've had problems with people not following the rules and leaving them open to EPA fines. I'd just be up front that you'll be following the policies, and then do a good job staying tidy and you'll have no problems there. Everyone on staff was very good to me, especially when they saw we were serious about doing things correctly.

Re: DIY Boatyard in Washington State

Just to update, Hylebos in Tacoma no longer allows DIY work. After talking with them, it sounds like they had too many people who refused to abide by the rules putting them at risk of big EPA fines.

I'm probably going to Pt Townsend next time, since at least I can sleep on the boat and reduce the time wasted commuting back and forth like I would with Olympia or Seattle.

Possibly colony wharf in Bellingham. Over by the old GP factory, separate from Seaview.
