Default Hawaii's Big Island - boat harbors?

A friend of mine is moving to the Big Island for a 2 year contract and loves to fish - what are the good small boat harbors with launch ramps? I know Hilo has one but their crime rate is worrisome..

Thanks.

Hi Henry
I see your friend is looking for "Dry" storage.? That's doable if he wanted "Wet" moorage it's at least a 5 year wait list for 26' and under. HONOKOHAU Harbor in Kailua Kona has two double launch ramps,can be busy in AM due to tourist boats and locals...Call. Richard at 1-808-351-1857. (Dry storage)....Always nice to meet another THT member??

If the 2 year gig becomes permanent he'll ship his boat over and either dry stack it or store it on a trailer.

I spent a few months in HI a couple of years ago. Considering that they are a bunch of islands I was kind of surprised at the lack of small boat harbors and smaller boats.

I don't know, I think it's outside of Hilo or along the North coast due to the crime in Hilo.
