We are planning on Shipping Dragon's Toy, our IP37 back to the East Coast to cruise the Bahamas for a few years. We are looking for a yard to off load the boat from the truck and reinstall the mast and also a secure place to leave the boat during the hurricane season.

Any information or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hayden, I think Tom meant some place on the east coast. Didn't you have Island Spirit some place near Stuart? Isn't there a Hinckley yard over there?

OOPS, Right you are, I missed that, I thought of west coast FLA. Yes, we used the Hinckley Yard in Stuart Florida for storage and launch, that would be a good place to truck into. We also used MACK SAILS of Stuart Florida, and they work out of a yard called....
Apex Marine
260 NW Dixie Hwy, Stuart, FL 34994
apexmarinerepair.com

This yard is a small work yard with a marina next to it. You could easily truck to APEX, off load there and hire Mack Sails to re-step the mast. This would be far cheaper than Hinckley.

Once launched, you could :
A: Dock right there and work on the boat
B: Move a short distance to Sunset Bay Marina into a dock or a mooring ball.

B is the best option becuase Sunset Bay is a dream and the town of Stuart fl IS A DREAM.

This area is one place Radeen and I could make home on the water. Sailing out of here is in the river or out the inlet to the ocean.

Sunset Bay Marina & Anchorage ?
Marina in Stuart, Florida
Address: 615 SW Anchorage Way, Stuart, FL 34994
Hours: Open today · 7AM–6PM
Phone: (772) 283-9225

So, that is my option. Truck to Mack Sails working yard, APEX.
Launch and move over to Sunset Bay.

Thanks so much for all this information, Hayden. Whimsy needs new chain plates so we are giving all this a very close look.

Chris:
Hands down, if you are in reach of Stuart Florida, then I would trust and hire Mack Sails to replace the chain plates. Hands down. If west coast Florida, then Snead Island Boatworks. Otherwise, sail up to Maine and hire Norm Pierce in Boothbay Harbor. These are the top resources at this point from my understanding and my working with these people.
