Trailering a boat - How to step the mast upon arrival (oriental, nc)

Hi - I am planning my first trip to Oriental, NC. Since my boat is currently located in Raleigh, NC, I would have to trailer the vessel until I arrive in Oriental.

I called a few of the Oriental marinas and they do not have a boat ramp nor do they provide assistance with stepping a mast. I have a 22 foot boat, so the mast can be stepped with 2 or 3 people.

So - my question is once I arrive in Oriental, I don't know how to get my boat in the water (This is somewhat embarassing, but true)

Alternatively, I could start calling other places around (new bern, maybe) but would I hit the same problem?
