Any DIY yards in Minnesota near Minneapolis?

by Gillian
(Washington, DC)

I have a 1963 35' wooden trawler than I have been working on in Maryland.

Maryland is a great boating community but still few DIY yards that welcome wooden boats.

I've been fortunate to have found a marina and have a great friend in the owner.

Nonetheless, a potential career move might relocate me to Minnesota.

Does anyone know of a welcoming yard where I can spend my days off working on my big old boat?

That's a lovely old trawler, will you be putting her back in soon?
