    Hi everybody,
    Might be buying yet another Cape Dory in MA and looking for an inexpensive yard to store her till summer. She's sitting on the hard already and will have to be trucked to a yard, so recommendations on low, reliable transport would be helpful, too.
    Thanks in advance,
    Greg K.

    Greg if you are located on the Cape Cod Pecks boat yard is pretty accommodating not fancy but they have power and water available. I used to keep my Catalina 30 there

    What part of MA? It’s a big state. I’d feel good about recommending FL Tripp in Westport http://www.fltripp.com/

    Nice boat. Same year as our former Sherpa which btw is still going strong in the Med with the new owners since 2011. We're looking for a much smaller boat.
