In addition to the extensive repair facilities at Thunderbolt Marine, so ably described below by “Captain T,” don’t overlook the excellent transient dockage available here as well! And, I also second the recommendation for Tubby’s Tank House. The seafood is AWESOME!

Try Thunderbolt Marine on the Wilmington River. Coming North go in via Wassaw Sound, but watch the buoys carefully. Huge facility. Used to be the refit facility for Palmer Johnson. If they can’t fix it, I’d be surprised. We had a turbo replaced there a few years ago.
Watch out for the flying teeth, nasty little black fly thang’s that come out just before sundown.
Check out Tubby’s Tank House Resturant a short walk from the marina.
