Safe harbor storage

Hi All.

Looking for safe harbor storage on the lower east coast for July..November. on the hard or wet slip. North Florida East coast ideally.

Any recommendations?

We’ve used SH Skull Creek Hilton Head for a 3 month contract of wet. Ended up there when couldn’t find berthing in FL. Near Savannah/Hilton Head airport and have needed to fly in/out. Hence the need to have a secure place to leave the boat. No SH service vendors but they allow outside techs. Unlike NEB they do not charge outside techs a fee for access. No travel lift. Would use thunderbolt if we had that need or a complex problem. Local divers are reasonable. Setting is very pretty. Below the freeze line so leaving has meant just closing a few through hulls and locking up.

Do you mean "Safe Harbor" the marina brand? Or safe harbor, the concept?
