PNW haul out for steel hull stripping?

Anyone knows a DIY haul out place in the PNW, where I could strip the paint layers down to the metal myself? The boat is 78K pounds, so I will need a 30-40T crane.
The job is not urgent, but I cannot afford to pay a boatyard for this job, which can be 20-25K dollars.
Thanks.

Do they allow DIY? Can they haul out a 35 tons vessel?

Thanks.

The boatyard will charge me 20-25K dollars. I cannot do that.

My buddy rebuilt an old tuna boat, roughly 70 ft at the main yard at laconner, so don’t count them out. He had to be careful about adding too much steel as he was close to the yard limit, but it was a pretty big boat. Worth asking.

Port of Port Townsend. The best DIY spot in the PNW. Tons of tradespeople there who can assist if you need. They have a 330-ton Travelift that can haul boats 150' long. Also a 75-ton lift that they hauled our 50K lb. boat with (plus a couple smaller lifts, too).

You'll do fine there! (We spent 2-weeks hauled there in June and did most of the work ourselves.)

Great! Thank you.
Port Townsend is close enough to Bremerton. So, we are talking about the Port of Port Townsend, or there is a boatyard, as well?
The number I have quoted came from a gentleman, who works at the boatyard. He told me the 20-25K dollars for a 50-55 footer steel hull sand blasting + paint job. This is why I never considered the place.

Yes, the Port of Port Townsend operates both marinas in town. Point Hudson, the smaller one just off downtown, does have a boatyard but it's Sea Marine. I *think* they might allow DIY work there, but not certain.

The larger yard is commonly referred to as Boat Haven. It's southwest of Point Hudson and has room for 100 boats on the hard. If you've ever driven into PT from Bremerton it's the yard across from Safeway and the hardware store. It's huge! You can't miss it... :-)

I think part of that cost is capturing all the debris from the sandblasting. I would check into the environmental requirements in the State of Washington.

From what I have seen in Port Townsend, any boat related work can be done there.

I have been convinced by others that sand blasting is not worth doing it alone in WA State. Maybe vapor blasting will work? I need to ask the boatyards.

The Boat Haven , in Port Townsend does allow sandblasting .. with stipulations. There is a new dustless blaster in town that has done some boats.
Look up these guys.

The P.T. yard is a DYI yard, probably the best one around

I talked to Boat Haven yard in P.T. They allow sand blasting, as long the boat is completely covered and environmental rules are honored.
They do not allow wet blasting.
They haul out is not cheap, quite pricey.
I think, I will keep looking for another yard.
