Moving to FL

We are going to be moving to FL at the end of summer. We are having the boat shipped down from the Great Lakes. (Yes, I know we can drive it) We are shooting for the Jupiter/West Palm area on the east coast. There are reasons for this, relatives, jobs, etc.

I'm looking for recommendations on where to ship the boat and marinas in the area. We have been looking but thought I'd access the hive mind. The boat will need to be made ready for blue water, i.e., bottom redone, mags changed to zincs, possibly having electronics upgraded, etc. We'd like to ship the boat to a location that can do this work as well as recommissioning her when ready. Once the work is done, we are looking at a marina that has good amenities, security, reasonably priced for Annual slips, fuel and easy access to the ocean. It also needs to accommodate our draft of 7' at low tide as well as our length of 43'.

Looking forward to hearing thoughts and recommendations.
