This facility is equipped with a travel lift as well. And is listed as full service.

I have also located a tank manufacture near the area that you may wish to reach out to for the actual tank as well which the marina service will also be able to assist you with.

Luther’s Welding Inc.*****

That marina seems to have really good reviews and is stated to be full service, I have noted the travel lift so hey should have no problem accompanying your 39' vessel.
