Here's a for-what-it's-worth update...
There are plenty of mooring buoys available and plenty of room for any cruiser-sized boat. It appears there is dry space available, too, because the marina has worked to accommodate its customers. It's a popular enough site with a great array of support services that it will be full sooner or later. It's unlikely the piers will be an option in the foreseeable future.
A nearby resource for a few little guys, expecially weekend sailors who live nearby, is the Knight's Marina at Black Creek. The site is a county-owned boatramp that is relatively new, more or less 10 years. There are plenty of government-imposed rules that may keep away some sailors, for example no live-aboards or even spend-the-night-aboards.
The slips appear limited in size, surely nothing above 40' would fit, maybe even a littl smaller than that. However, within those boundaries, it's a clean and attractive facility, moderately priced. It never will compete with the old navy facility, but it's a nice little alternative.
