Lido 14' would require a trailer and hitch: www.lido14.org
and might be cheaper then a Holder 14': Holder Vagabond 14 sailboat for sale
I have sailed a Laser on the ocean down in Guadaloupe from a Club Med many, many moons ago. They had a protected lagoon we put in at and sailed through a 'hole' in the reef out into the Carribean with maybe 3' swells. It was a blast and I'm pretty sure I pissed off the Frenchy waterfront guy who did not want us to leave the lagoon area in the first place.
You can launch a Laser from an ocean beach in small surf; that will be your judgement call. Better to start out in a semi-protected area near the ocean that you could retreat to if needed. Some of your NC inlets to the ocean have some nasty reputations for currents and waves though.
Pamlico and Abemarle Sounds not big enough water for you?
