Staff (manager, dockmaster, security guard) were very friendly and helpful. There is a security guard there all night. Dockmaster helped us tie up and gave us a choice of several slips. Floating concrete docks and nice pedastels were great. The dockwa page showed they had gas fuel, but they don't - at least not now (March 18). Stop at the Wilmington Marine Center on the way up the Cape Fear River for fuel so you won't have to back track if you want fuel before you dock. The lack of fuel was the only disappointment. Location was great - can easily walk to town for food, shopping and lodging.
