Re: looking for nice marinas VA/NC/SC
I am the author of the Atlantic Cruising Club's Guide to Mid-Atlantic/ICW Marinas (Norfolk, VA to St. Mary's, GA) book with bound-in DVD. All of the data from the book and the 5,000 photos from the searchable DVD are all also posted at the AtlanticCruisingClub's website. While this consumers' guide is intended for cruising boaters looking for transient slips, there is a huge amount of data that would be useful for boaters looking for extended, liveaboard stays.
If you have specific questions after reviewing the site, please post them here or email me through the site. I know the areas quite well, have visited every marina several times and can likely answer most questions.
