Pamlicotraveler is on a distinguished road
Having a full-time dockmaster or staff of dockmasters who can keep an eye on boats, especially in troubling weather.

The one I recall being impressive is Zahniser's in Solomons Island Md. I was there during a storm and the staff was out in the worst of it with flashlights and walkie talkies. It's anectdotal since I was just there for that one storm, but it is what you would like to see - marina staff braving the weather to check on boats.
