  • Today the population of Harkers Island is 1651, and the old fishing and boat-building traditions are in trouble. Says Jim Sabella, an anthropologist at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington: "If you go to Harkers Island with the notion that you're going to find this quaint, old-timey fishing village, forget it. It's just not there. It's only when you've lived there for a while, and you get to know the families, that you see the older way of life coming through."
