I promised I'd report back when I had results. The delay has been caused by
my inability to reach Hazzard and Dolphin Cove...
I also did a comparative analysis between our top choices, Tiger Point
(Fernandina Beach, not, of course, Charleston) and Rockville Marine. For
our purposes, they were similar in cost, but not being able to live aboard
(requiring hotel costs) has forced us to return to Tiger Point, not a
negative, as we've had excellent results personally, as well as have
encountered many cruisers who share our positve thinking about their
experiences with them.
Hazzard marine never responded to several emails...
