Re: looking for nice marinas VA/NC/SC
I don't often make recommendations for marinas, but you have to look at River Dunes. A 5 star resort marina. We paid under $300/month last summer for a 42' boat.
Only downside is it's remote. You might need a car. But for that price, you could get Enterprise to deliver from New Bern on a long term contract. They do have 2 loaner cars for short hops to Oriental for groceries & hardware.
