Keep us posted with what you come up with. I am limited in how big I can upgrade with where I am at currently and I don't want to trailer. Would love a covered slip with a lift.

There are some pretty big boats in wet slips under a roof right out side the Ale House. I don't know if any have lifts though and I dont know the name.

We like Kerr not alot of people on the lake . We camp at North Bend Campground next to the dam. We did a poker run in Sept. I think their were 12 boats and 4 jet ski's but we had a blast. Lots of coves to hide in . Great water to play in . Here are the 4 boats out of the Hampton Roads Powerboat Association that went to the poker run in Sept.

www.bestoflakenorman.com has 17 marinas listed with about 3 or 4 that specify dry storage. the one that is supposed to be able to handle 38+ footer is about 4 miles out Perth Rd., just not sure the name of that one thus far.

The name of that Marina is Morningstar Marinas @ Skippers Landing in Troutman, NC. 14 mi up from the main channel.

I've kept my Spectre there for 2yrs. They treat me like gold! Very clean, very accomodating & great people. I'm almost positive they've stored a 40' Fountain Lightening there.

It's a haul up the interstate but a great ride for me on the water. With a 100mph+ boat being 1 mi from the sandbar would be about a waste to own the Spectre.

Feel free to contact me if I can be of any further assistance.

When you say 14 mi., you are referring to water miles, correct? About 4 or 5 miles from Hwy 150 out Perth Rd.?

I-77 exit 28 takes you to the Rusty Rudder & Holiday Marina which are closest to the Sandbar which is the regular hangout approx 1 1/2 miles from the marina. Morningstar Marina is off of I-77 exit 42 or 14 miles up the interstate. It's actually probably closer to 18 driving miles but 14-15 nautical miles by boat.

You are correct, 5mi north of Hwy 150 up Perth Rd on your left.

Sorry I don't know the channel markers off the top of my head.
