We are in Brunswick, GA (just north of the Florida border).  Almost no damage in the marina, mainly due to luck.  The maximum storm surge came at low tide, leaving only 4 to 5 feet of piling above the dock.  We have a 6 foot tidal range...

The hurricane also stayed well offshore as it passed Brunswick.

Winds peaked at 80 knots with sustained maximum winds between 50 and 60 knots.

All in all we feel very lucky.
