try a diy boatyard that allows live aboards. think about the amount of nasty bottom paint dust and fiberglass coated clothes that go through the washer and the residual left.

Sailed in last year. Had at least 12 feet all the way. Just watch out for concrete that has fallen off underwater by the seawalls when you tie up. As mentioned above, channel in is closed during a norther.
