Question Looking for dry storage in Chicago area for one week

I'm hauling a 28' Magnum to the Chicago/Juliet area and need to store the boat for a few days. Can anyone help out with name/phone number of a "dry" marina?
I was initially going to leave NJ on Thurs 9/18/03 , and meet up with the new owner on Saturday 9/20/03, however due to hurricane "Isabel", I'm thinking about leaving earlier and storing the boat for a few days.The new owner is driving out from Seattle Washington and will pick up the boat on Saturday 9/20/03. Any help or suggestions are appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Try Skipper Buds in Winthrop Harbor Illinois. They are on the IL / WI border. I am sure they could help you out, but are a little out of your way.

847-872-3200

I think Oasis Marine is in Chicago. I don't know their number.
