Just something to think about, but a loop boat and a long weekend boat are two different things. I boated in your local waters for 6 years. Little Washington is a great little town, but the water distances are pretty long for other destinations. Of course, Bath is a pleasant close stop, but not much there. It seems a boat with a good turn of speed say at least 12-14 knots cruise would help on the distances. It would also help when trying to get home if the weather has turned bad. Those NC sounds and rivers can deal a nasty chop.

20 years is a long window. There will be plenty of time to decide on a loop boat.
