Best Savannah, Georgia marina for Storm protection

We are transient in Georgia looking to tuck in and hide in Savannah for Florence. Looking for local knowledge and recommendations on marinas that provide the best storm protection..

Thx

Both Fort McAllister in Richmond Hill and Isle of Hope in Savannah fared well last year.

Or, pick a river and go about 10 miles upstream, you'll escape the storm surge, at least.

No, you have time, call Brunswick Landings Marina, ask for Ralph and see if he can find you a spot, do it now and get moving.
Ralph posts here often and will help you out if he can

Both Hogan's Marina and Sasser's Lee Shore Marina on Turner's Creek, Wilmington Island had no damage from the two hurricanes two years ago. They were shielded by Walgreens and Publix, two big buildings adjacent, so the hurricanes passed right over the marinas.


At this point the prediction is for a 25% chance of a storm (1-minute-average wind of 39 mph).....
