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
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.
