Have to agree with camaraderie, N. Carolina has some good sailing/cruising. I don't think you'll like S Carolina, or Georgia
. Not much and the spits are long toturous things just waiting to have you run aground on them. N.C. has some very reasonable locations to store your boat and you can still find good values as far as housing.
We stayed in New Bern for about a year!! Sunspot Baby still lives in New Bern... He is a good source.
