If it were me, I'd avoid Topsail unless you truely know it well and can run it all the time. Shoals up quick and you can end up in ankle deep water with 4 ft rollers on you in a heartbeat. I compare it to lighthouse channel runnin out of Harkers... them shoals shift and unless you follow a big boat out.. can be tricky if you dont run it all the time. Be carefull following big boats to as they've been known to strike sand as well and it usually happens pretty quick,, dont wanna run up their tail pipe..

Wrightsville without a doubt and right smack in the middle between the two inlets you mention. Masonboro inlet, deep water, no navigation issues, pretty much no brainer and once inside, good runs north and south in the ICW.

I'm sure Mike will chime in on Topsail. Masonboro get's my vote! (probably one of the nicest inlets on the NC coast) ;)
