Hello Tony,

First of all, you won't be able to get a SM into

Hello all,

It is time to start heading back to the US. Can
anyone tell me of
a "good" marina that has yard facilites? I would
like to pull the
and generator out of our boat and give the engine
room a total
upgrading. We have reservations at a marina in
New Bern, NC., but
there are no facilites for the work I would like
to get done. We
prefer to stay in No. Carolina or So. Carolina
maybe even Georgia.
plan to get there just about Christmas. Thanks in
advance for any
