Ft Lauderdale marinas/boat yards DIY?

If I buy this 48 Defever I'm going to need a DIY boat yard in the Ft Lauderdale area to get her ready to take up to the Chesapeake. Anyone know of a yard with reasonable prices?

Glades boat yard is about 100 miles inland , across lake O , and is $20 or so a day on the hard.

+1 for Glades. Was there looking at a boat a week ago. $20 per day day gets you water and electric. Good travel lift and what looks to be competent yard hands.

As a side note, they have a long term storage yard with quite a collection of yard queens. They don't let you walk in the storage area unless you are with the boat owner or his broker. There was a 36 or 40 Willard in the yard a couple of rows over that had been there for several years. Didn't realise that the yard wouldn't give out information on contacting the owner or let me take a pic of the name and home port, until after I left the storage area. Would liked to have known if that one was for sale.

How would Glades compare with Indiantown for 4 months of hurricane season storage on the hard?

Did not save their yard price sheet. But I believe (don't quote me) long term storage was a 3 month minimum at $3 per foot per month plus haulout and relaunch. Broker I was with said that their only hurricane damage in the last 10 years was 1 snapped sailboat mast.

Indiantown has more professional staff , but is closer to the east coast.

Glades is better for its location .

Have you thought of simple wet storage ? Usually $200 a month about 5 miles from Glades in a Hurricane Hole.

FF,
Will consider wet storage as we get closer to the time.
2 years ago, in Demopolis dry ended up cheaper because I had to do the bottom anyway.
