My mistake for thinking Oriental was part of outer banks. At this point we're just thinking of possibilities so anywhere around there is a possibility - thanks for the ideas.
Washington is THE place for Pacific Seacrafts since they're made here now! Those guys are a great resource, and it sure is nice to be around the other PSC boats. At Carolina Winds, where I keep Kon Jeni-Al, there must 8 or so others...from the 31 footer to 40. The thing I like about Washington is the access from the mainland. From Charlotte, where I live, it takes me about 3:45 minutes to reach, as compared to over 5 hours for Oriental. I guess you'll be coming down from the north so think Raleigh, then 1:45 minutes from there.
Washington is pretty deep and very protected. It does take 30 minutes or so to get to the sailing ground, but the upside of that is protection from storms.
Washington is a great little town. It's probably the most historical town I've seen in N.C. and I'm a native.
