November 2015 As posted on ActiveCaptain – My wife used Hank’s services to get to grocery store, hardware store, and ABC. Much better than taxi and very knowlegeable.Attended his weather navigation briefing that evening. Very well done and invaluable information for our trip south, plus it’s free. His handouts were on our bridge the whole time next day, will be again tomorrow.
Thanks for the kind words. Glad we could help!

May 2015 As posted on ActiveCaptain – While our boat was in the yard, we utilized Hank’s services several times for various things. He was very responsive & right there when you needed him. If you ask for something unusual, Hank will bend over backwards to accommodate you.
Thanks for a great review. Glad we could help!
Carl Nelson, Owner, S/V Moon Tide, Shannon 55
November 2014 As posted on ActiveCaptain – Hank watched over our boat for a month while we were away. His service goes far beyond the typical marina “don’t worry, we’ll keep an eye on her”. Hank spent an hour onboard learning the boat’s systems before we left. I then got regular email reports that he had checked the boat as well as a note that he was monitoring an offshore storm and would add dock lines if the storm changed course. He also arranged a deck cleaning and diver before we returned. Hank also gave us rides to and from the airport, to restaurants while we were in Southport, and to the grocery store for provisioning before we left. I’ll go out of my way to stop in Southport in the future just because I know Hank will be there to help.
Thanks for entrusting Moon Tide to our care!
Van and Emily Beck, Owners, S/V Frances, Bristol 47.7
April 2014 As Seen on the Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net, CruisersNet.net -Hank Pomeranz has worked with us since we brought our Bristol 47.7 Frances to Southport from Maine in November 2013. He has proven to be highly conscientious and reliable with yacht services and has gone the extra mile for us at every turn. Hank is a real asset to local mariners…
Thanks for entrusting Frances to our care!
Jim Feeney, Owner/Captain, MV Kathleen, Fleming 55
March 2014 Posted on ActiveCaptain for Southport Marina -While Kathleen spent a month at Southport Marina (which we highly rate) we engaged the services of Hank Pomeranz who runs Carolina Yacht Care. Hank was very accommodating, including his assistance with a repair job to a battery charging system, checking on the boat almost every day, making sure we had adequate heat, electric power, monitoring volts and amps which was an issue as we had shipped off the mastervolt for repair. Hank helped us with transportation and lots of local advice. His boat is berthed at the marina and he lives in town. He is a meteorologist and has developed an app for your iphone for site specific weather forecasts. I highly recommend his service.
Thanks for entrusting Kathleen to our care!

January 2014 (Posted on ActiveCaptain for Deep Point Marina) – …Hank at Carolina Yacht Care (see brochure in marina office) will take you into Southport, give you the tour, take you by hardware, grocery, whatever stores, as well as restaurants in Southport. Took friends of ours home for Christmas dinner. Wonderful guy, great service. Do call Hank and do stay at Deep Point…
We appreciate the great recommendation!
