    Reggie: I hauled my sailboat our summer before last. My Marina is Ashley in Charleston Harbor. Took the boat up the Ashley River to Dolphin Cove marina for the haul out. they have a big lift and very reasonable rates. very nice and easy to deal with. their cheap rates are reflected in the deferred maintenance of the facilities but the nicer places are more expensive.

    I have not until today had knowledge of anyone going up the Ashley River that Far to Dolphin cove Marine. Price definitley was right. For the others who may consider this location, You need to clear a 14 ft air draft to get up river as they do not want to open the two Old Draw Bridges. We have plenty of Marinas in Charleston and the near by area. It all depends on what amenities your want and how close to downtown Charleston You want to be. We enjoy life at the City Marina. Best Regards….Ya;ll come see us now Hear.
    Capt Bob Kovach,

    They were opening the drawbridges, I think on the hour upon request.? There were boats waiting for them to open so they could go through.? We are about 15 ft. (with our canopy?up) and the bridge tender said the bridges were 18 ft. at high tide.? We had no problems going under.? You have a beautiful city and wonderful restaurants.? I am sorry we only had enough time to sample a few of them!? Today we are going to Beaufort and plan to anchor out and dingy in. Also, we are thinking of toping off our fuel before we leave S.C. Everyone tells us S.C. has the best fuel prices.?
