On the hard storage east coat Fl

The best laid plans have fallen apart and we need to leave Lagoon 46 to return home for family crisis. We can’t find any dockage anywhere so we’re looking for a month or more of storage on the hard on the east coast of Fl. Any suggestions on where to look?
We’re in the Abacos presently and looked into Bradford Marine in Freeport but can’t get our dog and cat home from there. Ferry allows dogs but not cats. Go figure!

You might try Scorpion Marine at Port Canaveral. They have several catamarans on the hard Most marinas at the port are full but you might try Ocean Club if you want to stay in the water

Friends are hauling their cat for a few month's storage at Harbortown Fort Pierce. No idea if they have additional room but call Wade there to find out.

If you can make it to Green Cove Springs on the St. Johns River, just south of J'ville, they have tons of space to store a boat on the hard.

There's always Lauderdale Marine Center up the New River. Too bad about the cat, Knowles in Lucaya could handle your boat.

Only if you want things stolen off your boat. Just our experience.

We have used Indiantown marina 4 times. They have the best travel lift crew I've ever witnessed. The down side is the service department. They vary from incompetence to just plain stupid. Hard to believe the travel lift crew and service department are the same company.

Re: On the hard storage east coat Fl

For short term I'd look for a slip or simply dockage.. You might try Nettles Island Marina.

Re: On the hard storage east coat Fl

I may have my L-42 sold and we might close on Dec 10, if the survey on the 3rd goes well.

My friend and I are on the Florida east coast and we might be able to babysit your Lagoon. I could send you references, etc. I have been cruising in the Bahamas three times, I have been sailing for 50 years and have owned two different catamarans and many other sailboats and motorboats. I am a retired woodworker but I also have mechanical skills so I am comfortable on most vessels. It is just an idea but it might work for you. If you have good ground tackle, we could babysit at anchor for a month or ?

We have been trying to figure out what we will do if the boat sells….if it doesn’t, I am heading to the Bahamas in the L-42.

Thanks, I will keep your offer in my pocket. The bottom is due to be done, so I might just have it done if we have to pull it which gives me another reason to pull it.

Re: On the hard storage east coat Fl

Indian town marina appears to be fairly far inland w multiple bridges. At 82+ ft of air clearance, we’re not ICW capable

Re: On the hard storage east coat Fl

Looking at the chart. Any knowledge or info on the locks and bridge? Looks like we will be at Scorpion but need a day or two to prep boat for hauling. No room at dock so we need to anchor out. Looking at wide spot along ICW North of locks but have ZERO knowledge of inlet and especially locks!

Does that remain an issue at Green Cove Springs?

I know there were a spate of thefts when we were laid-up there in 2015/16 (not from ours thankfully), but had understood that'd been resolved?
