There is a railroad in Georgetown, SC on Sampit River and a travellift in Charleston, SC on the Cooper River (Detyens Boat Yard).

I just resealed my saildrives (Volvo) during haulout. Let me know if you need any info on the process. Good Luck.

I could give you some names in Virginia, but can't help with SC.

Skipper Bob has a list of yards, and their max beam, but I think there are others.He lists Anchor Marina @ Myrtle Beach with 19.5. Maybe they could advise of someone wider. Hazzard Marine in Georgetown has a heavier Travelift, but not as wide.

Is water leaking into the saildrive, presumably past the hub seal? I had water getting in that way. I was able to clean up the oil, and fix what I consider the root of the problem, without hauling. Your leak could be worse, though.
