Some yards allow living aboard on the hard.

Now I realize that the relationship I have with my yard may be the exception, but if you could have that same relationship, wouldn't you want to support that business?
As you point out, you have that relationship, in part, because of you how you treat them. One of my (many) pet peeves is consumers who treat businesses like crap, then expect the business to bend over backwards for them. I am a firm believer in buying local, and treating businesses with courtesy and respect. While it initially may seem to cost you a few more $$$, in the long run I think it can save you money and lots of aggravation.

Every 2 years, and that's a stretch since a lot can happen below even in 2 years.

Every year. If for no reason than to just keep an eye on things. Lots of things that can sink a boat under there if left unchecked. There is also nearly always some project that needs doing where being on the hill is required.
