Wound up going to contract on a house in Oriental with dock plus the land next door the price was right on both .


Yes I have the flood maps had a survey also home inspection including termite spoke to several "neighbors" spoke with insurance brokers for hurricane flood etc. coverage all was good.

Jecaro,

Congrats on the house. I was actually looking at Oriental (among other areas), what attracted you most about the area? I heard it's kinda quiet there.

A plot of land with waterfront so that I can have our boat in the water in our backyard.

No, not yet. Should I? That would be east of Beaufort and the North River, right? I'm still trying to learn all of the areas.

Well I don't know, if your only criteria is a plot of land where you can keep your boat on the water, there are lakes and rivers all over the east coast that would fit the bill. There's really nothing else you care about?

Navigable water that is on or eventually leads to the ocean, with sufficient depth to move up to a bigger boat someday without having to worry about tides. So brackish water is ok, but a lake isn't. I'd prefer not to have a 1/4 acre lot where I'm right on top of my neighbors and an overly oppressive HOA. "10-20 minutes to milk" is ok, but a half hour drive to get to a store to buy milk isn't. My dream home would be a spacious log cabin home on a 2 acre waterfront lot with a boat tied up to a concrete hogslat dock, but I doubt I'd find a lot that would fit that bill.
