Atlantic Beach/Morehead City. First rate boat, Captain and crew.  Would not
go out when conditions were bad unless divers insisted; some boats would
take you to a rotten but safe dive in order to collect a fee -- not this
boat.  A truly straight operation.  Dives were on wrecks, although at some
point, wrecks begin to resemble reefs.  Great dives.  6th time back (twice
this year) and have booked for next year.

Boat comfortable but not elegant.  Most charters are reserved for returning
groups so that newcomers catch as catch can.  Very high level of renewals,
for understandable reasons.  As season wears on, liklihood of storms seems
to increase but policy of no dive, no pay mitigates the weather risk.
Stayed in beach house recommended by captain.  Excellent; great value.
