The closest marinas by water are Lake Gaston Water Sports, Holly Grove Marina and Morningstar Marina. Morningstar and the Stonehouse Timber Lodge are the closest by land (the other two are on the north side of the lake, so 5 minutes by boat ends up being about 30-40 minutes by land. All have gas. Lake Gaston Water Sports and Morningstar have more boating supplies. Holly Grove has an extensive fishing supply store, and also has good sandwiches, hot dogs and hamburgers. Morningstar has a great grill for burgers & fries (etc.), and kids love feeding the fish off the docks.

I recommend Donnie Davis of Stateline marine (134 Warren County Acres Rd, Littleton, NC 27850). Phone: (252) 586-7585. He can come right out to the house for most repairs. I've not used them, but I know that Lake Gaston Water Sports and Morningstar Marina also have parts and do repairs.
