The question and answer below are copied from the Net’s “Ask Your Neighbor” page, which was, in turn, copied form the AGLCA mail list. Of course, no surprise here. We particularly recommend Ross Marine, and these good people are a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR!
We are heading N from Savannah and just found our daughter inlaw is having our grandbaby a few weeks earlier than expected. We’ll be gone from the boat a few weeks so would like it kept on the hard until we return. Please suggest a Charleston area boat yard or marina for this.

Roger & Mary,
In the Charleston area it is very unusual to store a boat on the hard. Even in the dead of winter boats are in the water. Having said that there are three boatyards in the area you can try
Rockville Marine http://www.rockvillemarine.com/
Ross Marine http://rossmarine.com/cgi-bin/p/awtp-home.cgi?d=ross-marine
The City Boatyard http://www.thecityboatyard.com/
Your other option is to leave the boat in a Marina.
I have a boat at Bohicket Marina and would suggest leaving your boat there in the water.
