Thanks Charlie.Bill is always good to listen to.
Included in the Fairfield Harbor complex is Black Beards Yacht Club. They are the second best yacht club that I have been around. I would be a member except we keep our boat closer to our home at Duck Creek Marina.
Florence was by far the most damaging hurricane that I have experienced in the 20 some years that we have lived in the New Bern -Jacksonville area. Most damage to boats that I observed was, in order of seriousness: boats on the hard floating off their stands, boats floating onto and or destroying docks, floating docks floating off their pilings. I stayed aboard at our slip and tended lines while water depth varied from 4.6 feet to 16 feet. Wife stayed at home. Although we had riverfront property for a couple of hours we had less than $2500 worth of damage. We now have a generator so the sump pump will run.
Best of luck in your decision.
How far inland do you have to go before flooding is no longer an issue?
