In my case, the contractor couldn't/wouldn't help me so I found the part on line, spent $100 for overnight shipping and was on my way the next morning.
Of course it's not between Hilton Head and Norfolk anyway.
Active Captain has reviews on marinas and boat yards, but like with everything else, you have to take them with a grain of salt. You can find great and terrible reviews for the same place.
