Do an internet search for public boat ramps in the state. Maryland and Pennsylvania both have sites through their fish commission or Department of Natural Resources that list all the public boat ramps operated by those agencies.

Generally, if there is such a site for NC, it should provide access details. I did a quick Google search and came up with lots of hits. I'm not familiar enough with NC to know which one would help you.

Also, go to activecaptain.com. Other boaters might have posted ramp information and it's usually more up to date with temporary hazards and other information like that.

If I misread your post and you just need assistance stepping the mast, the only thing I can offer is ask another sailor that's also putting his or her boat into the water to help you. Worse they can do is say no. I don't know of any ramp that has employees who assist with mast stepping.

Reason #4 why we kept our trailer boat in a slip.
