Headed south from Beaufort, NC on ICW. Stopped over at the old Boatshead Marina in Georgetown. It is now called Georgetown Dry Stack Marina. This is a very recent event as is evidenced by some improvements which hopefully will be undertaken very soon.
The people are very friendly and this facility should improve to be a nice stopover.
Mens and Womens restrooms and showers need some attention but are adequate.
Dockage is $1.50 per foot and $5 per day for 30 or 50 amp electrical per day or $10 for both.
One note, I could not raise the marina on the radio and had to call at 843-546-1700. Hopefully, the will be equipped with handheld radios before long. Adress is 18 South St. James Street, Georgetown, SC 29440. email at

We sayed at the Baotshed on April 17 2011 The staff were friendly but the price is now $1.50 a foot and thw WiFi does not reach the transient docks.

The fuel dock is the transient dock, either on the inside or outside. 1.50 per foot includes 30 amp and cable. Floating docks. No pumpout.

We stumbled upon the Boat Shed Marina when once again we were not able to find sutible anchorage in the harbour.
Can not say enough about how great they were with us. Even gave us a lift to the Ice House to fill our propane tank.

Because of high winds and very cold temps we pulled in to Boat Shed instead of dropping the anchor. This is our second stay here and we find it a great place to tie up. They have changed the marina office to a larger building and now have a super stocked ship’s store. Cost of $1.40 per foot includes electric, WiFi, water, and cable TV hook-up. The fuel hoses can easily reach any boat on the dock. Several trash containers spaced along the pier. Friendly staff and close to town and all the restaurants.

Boat Shed Marina. New docks and great people. We were sailing north out of Charleston Harbor to Georgetown and got stuck when the wind shifted to the north and we had to tack several times. We got there two hours after they closed but two dock hands stayed to help us dock. Very good people and we will definitely go back there.

We stopped at Boat Shed every trip north and south over the past 3 yrs. It is one of our favorites. The marina staff are always helpful and friendly. The town is great for walking and the Rice Museum is wonderful. We stopped there in Jan. & May of this year and were not disappointed.

Georgetown, SC, tied up at Boat Shed Marina for two days. Barely adequate non-climate contolled showers (one in each rest room) but inexpensive dockage and easy walking distance to historical downtown with good restaurants and a harbor walk. I would try Hazzard Marine next time with a bigger, new floating face dock and perhaps better shore facilities. The entire town closes on Sunday, with the exception of a few places, but a great small town stop nevertheless.

Hi Folks:
We had 3 beautiful days of cruising the ICW since we left Writesville Beach.We arrived in georgetown SC on saturday afternoon and took a slip at the Boat Shed Marina. We have been traveling with a couple on a sail boat, we both make about the same speed. They have done the trip 5 times previous to this year and are familiar with a lot of good places to anchor and dock. They are Bob and Lynn Guyott from Maine. We have to stay in Georgetown at least until Thursday because of gale force winds south of us. We have calculated that we will not get to Florida before we want to return home so we have made arrangements to leave the boat at a marina in Brunswick GA. The place was recomended by a couple of boaters, including Bob and Lynn who will be staying there for the winter and will keep an eye on our boat for us.
Georgetown is a very old city and has lots of nice historic buildings and houses, they also have a waterfront walkway. In colonial days large amounts of rice and indigo were grown here and exported to England and Europe.
The weather remains unseasonably cold and we have been having rain
on and off for the last two days with heavy overcast in between.
So that’s all the latest news, I will write again when I can.

Ourselves and several other boaters had a great stay at Boat Shed Marina at Georgetown three weeks ago. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, and helpful, and the rate was $1.40 all inclusive, no discounts. Boat Shed is between Hazard and Harborwalk. Nice floating dock and fine water and power, clean restrooms and showers, but no laundry. It is an easy walk to a nice rice plantation museum, some fine restaurants, beautiful residential area, and an old small downtown area. One of the boaters stated that the meal at the Rice Patty Restaurant was one of the best on the Loop. I also understand that you can use the mooring balls, if one is available, and no one oversees them. We had a very fine stay at Boat Shed.
