Leaving Goose Creek you enter a cut. There is a Coast Guard station right before the Hobucken Bridge and R.E.Mayo Co., a commercial fishing dock, right after. You can dock here and it is extremely reasonable. Electricity is available but you will need a regular plug, not a boat cable. The office has a few snacks and hardware items, and Ice.
Last august after leaving Oriental heading north, we blew a cooling hose and sailed into Hobucken late in the evening. After spending the night tied to the commercial fishing dock we went to the office to see if they might have a hose. They didn't and I said "oh well I guess I'll hitch a ride to town and find one" The proprietor (who had never seen me before) said "No, take my car, the keys are in it" By 9:30 AM we were repaired and on our way.
Thank you R.E. Mayo!
