Re: Deltaville Area Lodging
You're right, there aren't a lot of options. I stayed in Kilmarnock. That was the closest hotel I could find.
Granted, you're a lot closer to D'ville than I am, but you'll want to factor in the logistics of getting any boat home into your considerations. There aren't any airports close by, the closest car rental agency is in Kilmarnock and you can't do one-way rentals to there, there's a U-Haul in Kilmarnock, but then you have to get from Kilmarnock to D'ville and there didn't appear to be any cab companies in that area. Getting a cab from Norfolk isn't cheap.
Ultimately, I basically was stuck either trying to find someone to come along and drive the car home, or hiring a captain. We hired a captain. I have a name of a surveyor if you need one. He did a "sanity check" survey for me for $100 before he did the full survey. Basically checked for the BIG problems that would make you want to walk away from a boat.
To which marina(s) are you headed? If you go to Norton's, please tell Mike that the guy who bought the Allmand from him finally got her home.
