Default How to get in.

If you have a dock to keep your boat at, try calling some of the smaller boat yards that have a travel lift. I did get in touch with my outboard yard and they said they have 50 ahead of me and can't take the risk of getting shut off from the ramp with non service customers.
Many are boat yards and still working, I got a rate of $12 a foot for launching from one in Pompano and they could have put me in today.
I had a small yard I do a bit of business with put me in today. I don't have bottom paint, but likely good for 2 weeks now.

From what I was told today, if you have a receipt for recent repairs then you can launch to get back to your slip.

Do you happen to have the name of the yards? I posted an ad the other day trying to find anyone (even a backyard with an incline) to launch one-way with no luck. We have a dock to go to, cash to pay, and haven't found any options. Thanks in advance
