Most of it is in a flood zone.

Lot of houses are built on stilts.

Flood zones are expensive on insurance if your carrying a mortgage.

Grew Up in New Jersey,

Joined the Marine Corps at 20, in '77

Bought a home here in '92, Jacksonville/Onslow county near Camp Swampy(Lejeune)

Retired in 2009.  I wouldn't live anywhere else.  Nobody retires and moves up north.

My boat is on a trailer and can reach most New River boat ramps in 30 minutes or less.

 

FWIW, this is way down on the list of considerations for moving/living here but Marine Fisheries Management is as crooked as a New Jersey construction project.  Off shore/pelagic not so bad, but between indiscriminate inshore large mesh gill nets, (=1 slot puppy drum-redfish, 4 speckled trout and soon to be no flounder and -0- stripers except the upper Roanoke - a day) steel boats dragging 200' of head rope through the Pamlico and Albermarle sounds killing 4lbs of juvenile finfish for every pound of shrimp, expect to do a lot of catch and release.  * and I didn't even mention floating oyster leases.... 

 

I Still hold to line 4 above.

 

V/R,

G H Mason

NC does regularly check licenses, registration and boat equipment. 

We do a lot of crabbing. I would like to be oyster farmer, someday.

No stilts. I cannot abide a house on stilts.

Some people do concrete columns with brick

Nice Area.  Lots of blowboats.  Good offshore fishing, but it is a longer ride than say Harkers.

Contrary to popular opinion, sailboats do NOT have the right of way.

They think they do.

And forget the law of gross tonnage.
