Re: Haul-out facilities in Grenada

Hi Ben:

We have hauled out at Spice Island Marine yard 4 times.  Always had a good experience.  Our first time there was the second year the yard was open and one year before hurricane Ivan (thank goodness) the Cat 4 hurricane that destroyed all the boats in the yard and 80% of the structures on Grenada. It pushed the jacks stands through the hulls of the boats and layer them all down.  There were major improvements in the yard after that with better anchors, better positioning in a chevron pattern, and better drainage etc.  I can highly recommend the yard to you. There are laundry facilities on sight, and the Budget Marine store is in the yard as well as canvas and sail shops etc.  

As an aside, we stayed in the Cool Runnings apartments while hauling and re-commissioning.  It is about a 2 block walk from the yard.  Basic but priced right with AC, kitchenette, and comfortable beds.  Clean and secure with guard.  Small breakfast/lunch restaurant on site.  Managed by:
