My experiences have been equally positive.  While I've not bought a boat in SC, I'd have no worries if I did my home work.

I've been comming down each summer since 1974, so I may be a new commer.  I call Isabel (She's a sweetie) at Marina Real the day before I come down.  She has a slip picked out for me and know's what services I want.  If I'm in a hurry, they"ll launch my boat for me.  Enrique will gas my boat (21 ft) with the same service as a 45 ft sport fisherman.  They help my wife in and out of the ramp.  I've had darn near every boat owner in the marina help her back in when needed.

Over at the SC marina, I've gotten equally good treatment at the fuel dock when buying 200 ltr of gas as a guy buying 2000.  Good folks, trying pretty hard.

I've had boats serviced in SC with no hassles.  Overall, if folks are telling you to expect trouble, I doubt they've been to SC, or they did something silly.

Go down there are go out on a charter, get the feel of the area.  You won't regret it.
