We have just been able to get back to the island.  We are assessing the marina.  At first glance, boats appear fine, some facility damage, docks received the most damage.  More to come.

We hope you all have come through Hurricane Florence with little damage, and this update finds you and your families well and safe.

We have been able inspect most facilities and are pleased to report that boats appear unscathed and our facilities suffered only minor damage. We, however, have not been able to access the island to see the marina. Photos from law enforcement and others paint a positive picture at the marina. The dry stacks and boats appear intact, as well as the dock house. The docks, however, are damaged significantly.

We will continue to update you as we learn more. We anticipate being able to access the island Monday or Tuesday.

Our prayers remain for the wellbeing of those with less fortunate outcomes. Thank you for your continued business and God bless each of you and your families during this difficult time.

Our entire staff is working diligently to prepare for Hurricane Florence and we wanted to update you:

We have an extensive waiting list of customers who need their boats hauled. We are working down this list now, but encourage you to explore other options you have available to you.

If your boat is in dry storage with us:
Forklift service ends at 2:00pm today for dry storage customers
Please remove cushions, canvas, curtains, covers, and anything that could blow out of your boat
If you need your boat moved down for any of this, please do it before 2:00pm

If your boat is in the water:
Secure with extra lines and fenders
Avoid tying tightly to pilings if possible, so your boat will rise with the tide/surge
Remove cushions, canvas, curtains, covers, and anything that could blow out of your boat
Make sure your batteries are charged so that bilge pumps will run
Check your battery switches and make sure they are off, so non-essential equipment doesn’t drain batteries

We also recommend gathering insurance policy numbers and phone numbers for your carrier’s claim line, in the event of a loss. Check with your insurance agency if you need this information.

We have begun to pull boats, as per our agreement, for customers who participated in our 2017-2018 PCG Winter Storage Program.  We have a contractual obligation to offer services to these customers first, as a part of our winter storage agreement.  Once we have fulfilled our obligations to these boat owners, we will continue to help our other customers as well.  Please continue to e-mail us with your questions,  Thank you for your patience.
