I just wanted to say welcome to boating on the Albemarle! We’re going on 15 years now with a boat docked out back. However crowded the beaches and land based establishments are, being out on the water is always a completely different experience with almost no one around at all, and never ever a crowd. Fishing, crabbing, tubing, cruising to some favorite boat reachable restaurants, or just anchoring out by the community beach. You’ll quickly get used to the does and don’ts. Good luck!
