Default Boat stacker using Marina Bulls Forklift in San Francisco to BC

Hi, I work as a boat stacker in Australia using the Marina Bulls forklifts. I am visiting San Francisco to Portland to BC in your summer.
I would love to visit at least one (ideally a big one) of similar facility during my holiday. To get an idea of how they do things differently.

Can someone recommend a stacker that is not too far out of the way (close to city), which is big, and friendly for me to drop by and have a look?

Thanks V12Mac. Any idea which of these in West Coast is the largest? Our yard holds 290 boats so I hope to see larger ones. I'm nowhere near FL unfortunately.

With the huge tide swings we get out here the high and dry concept dosent work as well. You'd need a really tall fork and a monster seawall.

I'd look at the high volume guys on lake Washington.

They don't stack, it is all at ground level, outside, with a lot of moss growing a lot of boats
