RainDog is on a distinguished road
I am in the Seabrook Marina. My $.02 compared to other marinas in the area:

Good: 5 minute motor the Bay compared to 20-30 minutes for many other marinas
Good: Friendly staff and fairly active social scene
Good: Bathrooms are clean and always well heated/air-conditioned

Bad: Facilities and grounds not as nice as some other marinas (e.g. Waterford)
Bad: Wi-Fi only works about 1/2 the time (from what I hear it is flaky at all the marinas)
Bad: You only have a dock on one side of your boat (most Marians are that way, but a few you have docks on both sides so you can tie-between)
Bad: Really close to the bridge, so a lot of road noise.

The main thing that keeps me here is the proximity to the Bay. I would not want to motor 40 minutes round trip every time I wanted to sail. For me that is worth putting up with the road noise. If I sailed less often, I would prefer one of the quieter marinas further up the lake, such as Waterford.
