Re: looking for nice marinas VA/NC/SC
I'd look at New Bern Grand Marina in New Bern, NC. The facilities are great. Located right down town New Bern. Floating docks, free pump outs, swimming pool, and great staff. Last time I checked the rates were $8 per foot monthly, $6.50 per foot with an annual or 6 month agreement. 10% discouunt for prepay.
Easy sail to Oriental, about 20 miles. Location wise Oriental is about perfect but I don't believe there are any floating docks and the marinas in Oriental were higher priced. Good luuck!
