    I like the idea of boat rentals and if you stay near waters close to Atlantic Beach you should be fine. However, even the most experienced boater in the area runs in to trouble all the time once you get out near Cape Lookout, Shackleford Banks, and in some places near Beaufort Inlet.

    The shoals and sandbars are consistently changing and the channel markings are not always up to date.

    Surely if there are rentals in the county someone is having these discussions with people who don’t normally use boats and have no idea about the area’s constantly changing maritime landscape.
