1)The Houseboat owner is involved in a lawsuit with the HOA of Sea Gate the neighborhood he try's to dictate. 2)The owner of the Houseboat allegedly owes a lot in back taxes. 3)The owner of the Houseboat was seen taking personal property out of the boat hours before the fire. 4)The owner of the houseboat drove almost two hours to eat dinner the night of the fire at the Red Lobster in Jacksonville (I guess the seafood in Beaufort isn't fresh enough). 5) the Houseboat which he cried about on TV has been for sale for at least 3 years. 6) He is a developer who is struggling like all other builders and developers. 7) He has the worst reputation in Carteret County for being a dirty businessman and a bully. 8) The fire started on the starboard stern. Out of sight until it was too late.......smells VERY fishy to those of us who know him. The fire marshals / arson investigators need to do their due diligence on this one!

Just found out that Gary Hill, the owner of the burned houseboat "Compromise" had some real estate in Stanton Landing development (which he developed) foreclosed on two weeks ago. This is a desperate man trying to stay afloat.
