What I like about the place, no problems with DIY yard work. Easy relaxed atmosphere, nobody super pretentious, people just seem like honest hard working folk. there is a mix of vary nice looking boats and run down looking boats. This yard also demolishes and crushes old boats which is fun to watch. And sometimes I get free stuff.
here it is near LAFB in Hampton. We pay $150 per month.
The owner has a metal working business with the area shipyards, but the marina he seems to run for the fun of it. He really enjoys it, he is there all the time working on projects.
Another advantage he will haul out any wooden boat even if falling apart. A lot of marinas wont do that. My boat is in great shape, but when I called 4 marinas, Dandy Haven, York River Yacht haven refuse to haul wood boats. Belle Isle and Marina cove will.
