Editor’s Notebook with Joe Evans

Walking the Dog


have inadvertently become a member of a cadre of morning Labrador retriever walkers in my community. We muster at the school bus stop where we ship off our little scholars. Then we set out to get our money’s worth from squeaky sneakers and spiked medieval training collars as we give the dogs some fresh turf to sniff. We march the neighborhood’s outer loop along the water’s edge overlooking the Severn River and the Bay. We are an imposing fur parade marching four abreast (eight, counting the dogs) featuring an endless display of marksmanship by the boys in our pack, and the constant pulling by the girls who seem to imagine the tour as their own crucial Iditarod. This morning, as we walked along the bluff overlooking the shallow bay between Tolly and Thomas Points, we saw a three-masted schooner sailing south before a steady northwest wind. A substantial motoryacht was dropping down from planing speed as she entered the mouth of the Severn, no doubt headed for a U.S. Powerboat Show berth. I instinctively scanned the usual spots for signs of good fishing—a huddle of skiffs around the rocks at the Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse, a cloud of gulls diving over a ball of troubled baitfish over the Tolly Point Shoal, a change in the shade of the sun’s reflection on the water where silversides and bay anchovies wrinkled the surface, or perhaps a lonely fly-fisher working a long cast over the submerged rocks at Bay Ridge. Sure enough, a trio of early-risers had their white skiffs drifting on the edges of a discreet eruption of feeding stripers and the nervous water caused by frightened menhaden just south of the shoal. I’m sure I recognized two of the anglers as members of our local Coastal Conservation Association chapter; the same two

who had helped me close the annual fundraising banquet the night before. Impressive stamina and dedication, I’d say. The measure of their reward was easy to gauge by the lively bend of their fishing rods, the breadth of their smiles, and the tension on their leashes tethered to unruly fish. We Lab-walkers talk as we walk. The topic this day was time. We agreed that American life had become so busy and the days so full that we didn’t seem to have any hours left to do what we really wanted to do. Walks had become shorter and more rushed, we hardly ever go to movies anymore, can’t take a weekday to go shopping in Virginia… I was thinking that those dedicated fishers joined in action with the feeding rockfish had worked it out somehow. Not only had they taken the evening to bid on auction items they would never need, gnaw some chewy roast beef and beans from the buffet, and hang in to get their money’s worth at the open bar, but they had rallied before sunrise to launch boats and take their chances on the raffle we call Fishing the Chesapeake in October, apparently a good bet. One of the walking team said as she leaned back against the pull of her charging retriever, “I wish I had more time so I could go to the gym.” Going to the gym is good. Good for the body, good for the soul, and good for the economy. But, all I could think of all of a sudden, and I might have even said it out loud was, “I wish I had the time to go to the gym so I could go fishing instead.” See you on the water next time.

Letters Dear Joe: You may not remember me. We worked together about six years ago to get the Patapsco River Power Squadron eligible to teach at the Bass Pro Shop store in Arundel Mills, Hanover, MD when it opened. I am proud of the fact that we have taught classes throughout the years since the facility opened. Pardon a bit of unsolicited input, but please look closely at your cover of the October issue. (I try to find and read every issue.) This one clearly has a case of Corona beer stored on the open floor of the Water Witch. It should be clear in all aspects, that boating and alcohol do not mix. No one is clearly drinking on board, but most folks don’t store other stuff in a beer box, and I don’t think the vessel was delivering the booze. A small point, but one to look out for. Hope all is going well with you. I will be teaching the November class at Bass Pro… Brian Becker “Proud to be District 5” Thanks Brian. Of course I remember you. Good to hear from you. We talked about the beer issue before running the shot. It was a toss of a coin. We know that boaters enjoy beer and other alcohol on the water, and that’s not all bad. However, we do promote the designated driver concept. There was no indication that the helmsman was drinking, so we ran it. Thanks for reading PropTalk. Dear Joe: I was saddened to learn of Maynard Lowery’s passing (PropTalk October 2008). I first heard about Maynard Lowery when I purchased,  Chesapeake Lady, renamed Long Haul, a 38-foot wooden Lowery deadrise.  As I started what became a five-year restoration on the boat, I became more informed about him and his boat building history. In 2006 I traveled to Tilghman Island to meet him. His knowledge of the Lady was fresh and clear and he spoke of her as if he had built her only yesterday. He talked of her colorful history as a pilot house boat on the C and D Canal and of being stolen and later found in Georgia.   I left the island with a new friend. The boat, now renamed Mallori  Niccole, cruises the Northeast River and the Upper Bay.   Thanks, Charles Boyle Perryville, MD

Letters PropTalk is pleased to publish this original contribution from Max Rudow, the eight-year-old son of noted fishing and boating writer, Lenny Rudow. His first honorarium consists of a rare and official PropTalk ball cap and a crisp 10 dollar bill suitable for framing.

Dear PropTalk: o you like to take your kids fishing and boating? I am eight years old, and I love it when my dad takes us on the boat. I have learned three really important things on the boat—here they are: 1) If you get seasick or if your kids do, I have important news for you. Go to Queeze-Ease is like a Chapstick container that fits in my pocket, and when I take the top off and sniff it for five to 10 seconds, I don’t feel sick any more. It cost $15. Pretty cool huh? This is for a person of any age, which is good because I can’t take the pills grown-ups do to avoid getting sick. If you have kids and they feel bad sometimes, you should get this for them. There is one down-side, it wears off in about 15 minutes, but then you can just sniff it again! 2) Another important thing I’ve learned on the boat is teamwork. If you want your kids to learn teamwork, just take them fishing. My brother and sister and I work together to net the fish we catch, and when we have a really big fish on the rod. We also work together to pull up the anchor. We all get along better on the boat, and we are always working together like a team to catch fish and run the boat. 3) Speaking of catching fish, this is the third thing I have learned: You can buy bait called Fishbites at K-mart or a tackle shop, for about $10. I like Fishbites because they come in different kinds like worm or shrimp or clam flavors. (But don’t eat them. I tried and they don’t taste so good!) They are good because they aren’t messy like regular bait, but the fish do like to eat them very much. Those are the three most important things I have learned on the boat. I will go boating and fishing forever, and if you share these three things with your kids, I bet they will, too!

Mahogany and Chrome in St. Mikes

John "Racehorse" Williams brought his 1932 Ventnor speed-racer all the way from Versailles (Kentucky) for the first Concours d'Elegance boat expo in St. Michaels.


ast year to rave reviews, the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels played host to the Concours d’Elegance, a high-level judged show of extremely collectable automobiles. Limited to 50 cars, the show drew hundreds of vintage car freaks who paid the $50 entry fee just to look at (but not touch) these perfectly maintained symbols of mechanical lust and pride. Some of those cars belong to the Inn’s closest neighbor, Judge John North. This year on September 27, the Judge’s son David hit on the idea of including classic wooden boats in the weekend’s fun with a show at the Miles River YC. For a first-year event loosely tied to a second-year auto extravaganza, it came off well with boats in the water and on land from as far away as Versailles (Kentucky). This will be an event to keep an eye on. Stay tuned to PropTalk for news as the maritime version of the Concours d’Elegance develops for 2009. —Story and photos by Joe Evans/PropTalk 18 November 2008 PropTalk



he U.S. Coast Guard demonstrated the new 45-foot Response Boat-Medium (RB-M) [above] on the Potomac River in front of the Washington Monument September 24 [not shown]. The RB-M will replace the aging fleet of 41-foot response boats as part of a modernization initiative. The project was developed and managed from USCG’s Washington office. Chesapeake-based talent on the project includes David Shepard (Annapolis), a Webb graduate who is a project officer in USCG’s Office of Boat Forces, and Jeff Curtis from Crofton, a technical manager. The RB-M has a top speed of 42.5 knots with a pair of 825-hp MTU-Detroit diesel engines pushing a pair of Rolls Royce water jets. Steering and trim control are managed with a flick of a wrist from the X-Box-styled armrest of the helm chair. The boat is engineered to be self-righting in a roll-over, and she has crew accommodations for extended missions. The first of the new boats has been delivered and is operating out of the Little Creek Navy/USCG base in Norfolk, VA. Photo courtesy of USCG

Investing in Our Fishing Future


n September 26, President George W. Bush signed an amendment to an 1995 Executive Order recognizing the marine and freshwater conservation impact of recreational anglers and allowing responsible recreational fishing and boating in marine protected areas and federal lands. The policy is the result of two years of efforts by sportfishing and conservation organizations to secure recreational fishing and boating access. American Sportfishing Association vice president Gordon Robertson says, “Every time American anglers buy fishing licenses or sportfishing equipment, an investment is made in fishing’s future.”

The Write Stuff

mily Gibson, Jennifer Holstein, Cooper Joy, and Joseph Le-en Chiu won the 2008 Maryland River of Words (ROW) Poetry and Art Contest, part of the International ROW Poetry and Art Contest. Robert Hass, a former U.S. Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner who conceived ROW, says, “One of the things I love is that you get a whole flood of different styles, from very bold, bright-colored, poster-style representations of things to, as the kids get older and more sophisticated, echoes of the different traditions of modern art that they’ve picked up. In all kinds of ways, the students’ intuitive sense of the natural world educates me as I just look at their work. As John Muir wrote in the 1870s, ‘We’ve got compulsory education. What this country really needs is compulsory recreation. I want people to go to the school of the wind and the trees.’ It’s important to have kids understand that part of their education is an

informed knowledge of the places where they live and the experiences of the people who are working to save the environment... to give them a sense of hope and power we’ll need to take care of this land in the next century.” The next contest deadline is February 15, 2009.

What's in a Name?


n September 2, BoatU.S. and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service teamed up to reinforce the recreational and conservation values of sportfishing through a public information campaign called The Ethical Angler. The campaign’s seven-point code of responsible fishing practices (“A-N-G-L-E-R-S”) encourages people to avoid spilling pollutants, never leave trash behind, gain knowledge about aquatic nuisance species, learn fishing and boating regulations, educate fellow anglers, respect private property, and save fish for tomorrow.

She traveled 9500 nautical miles from Baja, CA to Solomons, but you wouldn't have guessed that from the looks of her. Interestingly enough, Fleming aficionados are a varied lot. Some are first-time boat buyers, if you can believe that! Some are sailors coming to powerboats for the first time, and others have owned every boat imaginable, and now want the comfort and luxury that Flemings offer.

“Powerful you have become, the dark side I sense in you.” -Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back

ave you ever noticed how many sailors are becoming powerboaters, especially aging baby boomers? It seems to occur in stages: Stage I: The racer stops racing, and goes cruising. “Racing is too intense, and we don’t like to go out sailing when the weather’s bad or there’s no wind.” Stage II: The monohull is traded in on a catamaran. “We’re tired of living on an angle. And look at all this room!” Stage III: The sailor samples the Dark Side, and gets a powerboat. “My knees are giving out. You spend half the time on the Chesapeake motoring, anyway.” The chosen boat is usually a trawler type; comfortable, relatively easy on fuel, and not much faster than a sailboat under power. I’ve seen this happen with lifelong sailors and cruisers. I’ve even heard, from reliable sources, that a well-know racing champion on the Chesapeake bought a powerboat, though he’s keeping the racing sailboat, too. It helps to own a marina. But what do you call someone who has both kinds of boats? binautical? ambinautical? Duobarcal? (Italian derivative) poor? And then someone who changes boats would be transnautical?

The manufacturers are responding, many creating separate powerboat divisions (often with different names to hide their shame.) These new boats seem to be designed for sailors: traditional lines, nice bits of wood trim, efficient diesels, displacement hulls. Some look like sailboats without masts (and presumably, without fin keels). Sabre, for example, now has three times as many powerboat models as sailboat models. One has to admit that powerboats have their attraction when the air is hot and the wind is light; at least you can get somewhere. Sailors counter that being on the boat is the destination. Luke: “But how am I to know the good side from the bad?” Yoda: “You will know... when you are calm, at peace, passive.” And powerboats make excellent committee boats and chase boats for sailboat racing! Let’s face it. Sailors are outnumbered. There are 12 million boats with motors

registered in the United States; 210,000 of those have sails. That is less than two percent. (Yes, I know they’re not counting all those Optis, Lasers, and 420s, but they’re not counting canoes, kayaks, or rowboats either.) On the Chesapeake, the odds for sailors are a bit better. But there is hope and inspiration. A good friend just celebrated his 80th birthday by purchasing a brand new 47 foot cutter. Sure, it’s got power everything, including halyard and sheet winches. But, by gum, it’s a sailboat! Yoda: “A Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side.” Luke: “Is the dark side stronger?” Yoda: “No, no, no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.” Stage IV: Finally the former sailor is completely seduced by the Dark Side, and gets a “go fast” boat. The heck with oil imports and global warming.

It’s not easy juggling a land-based life with a life on the water, and quite honestly, there are days when I don’t think I can pull it off. by Jody Reynolds


he relaxing summer I envisioned aboard Hermione, our 1925 57-foot Elco, on my favorite waters of the St. Lawrence River didn’t entirely pan out. Don’t get me wrong; it was a blast. It just wasn’t so relaxing, except for some stolen days at exquisite Calumet Island. Captain Mike Wright, my co-conspirator in this adventure, and who swore he only liked salt water, instantly fell in love with the clear blue river, the boats, and the people. I’d worried that he’d miss the swing of the tides, the aromatic marshes, and the shellfish dinners, which are not often available in restaurants along the St. Lawrence. At this writing in mid-September, we have left the river and are berthed in the Barge Canal near Syracuse, NY where Her-

mione will get some fresh bottom paint, and I will attend to other business, which is my topic this month. Between boat shows and the usual marina and town-dock visits, we figure we have had at least 1000 people aboard in our two-month visit to the 1000 Islands. One of the reasons we bought Hermione was to share our love of these historic boats, and we’ve sure been able to do it. We’ve entertained total strangers from 7 a.m. until well after 10 p.m., sometimes in our bathrobes. Many of Hermione’s guests were extraordinarily knowledgeable about old yachts. A couple we met last week once owned Gatsby, a 57-foot Elco we know from our visits to Charleston, SC.

Aside from the usual questions of length, age, and history, visitors want to know where we’ve been, where we’re going, and how we manage. They often say, “This boat sure looks like a full time job.” Well, she is and she isn’t. Mike and I have the privilege of living on a boat. We wouldn’t trade it for a minute. But while we are self-employed, we both work, a lot. And not always on Hermione the way we planned to. Mike travels the Atlantic coast performing surveys on classic wooden boats, consulting for owners of the same, and delivering boats from harbor to harbor. Together we are working to develop Hermione’s charter business. That has been complicated by an uncertain travel sched-

ule and conflicting business obligations onshore. While Hermione is parked, I am selling a large house, disposing of furnishings, sorting through accumulated treasures, and moving the remnants to a smaller place on pretty Cazenovia Lake. There I can keep the minutia of my land-based enterprises that make the maritime pursuit just barely possible. This means phone calls, e-mails, government issues, tenant issues, and the full suite of other things that require nearly daily attention, regardless of where I am. Fortunately, the Internet makes this possible except in some lonely stretches of the Carolina and Georgia ICW where wireless service is spotty. It’s not easy juggling a land-based life with a life on the water, and quite honestly, there are days when I don’t think I can pull it off. But then I look at our lovely Hermione and know it’s worth the effort, the confusion,

and the headaches of shuttling to airports, juggling cars up and down the Eastern seaboard, packing and unpacking, and lugging files in briefcases and business clothes in hanging bags so they may be donned at a moment’s notice. (No mean feat on a yacht with limited storage.) A person with a corporate position doesn’t have the daily flexibility of those who work for themselves. However, landbased employees receive regular paychecks including extras such as medical benefits and retirement contributions, features that independent waterborne workers must secure for themselves. But for everyone who yearns to live aboard for a year or a lifetime, I will offer a word of advice: Do it as soon you can. The saying about nothing being certain except death and taxes is true. And you never know when, except for taxes, of course. In l984, at the age of 48, my husband suffered a heart attack that should have ended his life, and which everyone assumed would end our cruising adventures. We both ran businesses at the time. I had already fought a bout with cancer at the age of 30. We were

fortunate to learn early on how tenuous life is, and we chose to live ours close to the wind and water. We still worked, but climbing the corporate ladder or running the most dominant business in town was no longer the burning priority. I figure that even while I charged around as a consultant in a major multinational business, I still managed to log about 40,000 miles on the water in the 20 years before my husband died. There were times when his illness made sailing long distances a foolish proposition, but that was our choice. When he died at the age of 69, I tried to release my dreams of living aboard. I attempted a big return to business responsibilities with only occasional boating adventures. I managed just two years of normalcy as my friends and family breathed premature sighs of relief thinking that I had come to my senses. But it just wasn’t enough. Then I met Mike Wright on a delivery of a friend’s Trumpy, and we came up with the crazy idea of buying Hermione and taking her to revisit the ports that define our coast. If you love boats and the water, and living onboard is your dream and you have someone who shares that vision with you—

go for it as soon as you can. On the other hand, if you have a significant other who does not have a passion for boats and water, don’t fool yourself into thinking that this will change when you retire to that boat of your dreams. Now for the nitty-gritty. I’ll just say it—anyone who leaves home for extended maritime living is a fool if he does not have the following in place: Will, living will, and health-care proxy in the hands of the person traveling with them or a dependable land-based alternate. Power of attorney in someone’s capable and trusted hands. Physician contacts and medical records in case something happens. Guardians named for children and wellloved pets with financial provisions for same. Come to think of it, this is a pretty good list for landlubbers to heed as well. When it comes to grim prospects of death, illness, and taxes, you can’t be too prepared. At sea, it’s hard to juggle business, family, and friends, and it does take a toll. But for those of us who gather energy and comfort as mariners, it’s clearly the way to go.

Rogers made that

PROP PERSON the River Medway in Gillingham, England. Four drawings line the tool box’s inside lid. Compartments inside the trunksized container shift, which makes access quite easy. All, of course, held together by perfect dovetailed joints. At age 16, Rogers entered the fiveyear apprenticeship that leaves him in rare company today. “There’s only one other that I know of,” he says. “Basically, this is a degree in wood working.” Two years into his studies, the program dropped to a threeyear requirement. Details were not ignored during his training. Rogers learned how to make structural joints as well as cabinet joints. He worked on a warship, then merchant ships, and, finally, wound up working at a fiberglass plant, of all things. Britain’s call for well-trained ship’s joiners was on the wane. “I was catching the tail end of it in the 60s,” he says. And so he crossed the pond. From Urbanna, he worked his

way north to Washington, DC, and Annapolis fitting out boats with highend cabinetry. But he wanted to tackle more creative work, plus, he got sick of working inside boats, banging elbows and knees, hitting his head. Nothing is ever at a straight angle. In 1979, he opened the studio. In 1984, he moved into the former corner store at Severn and Second. Today, Rogers still uses the same chisel he was issued as a young apprentice to carve 200 to 300 nameboards a year, including those found on Fleming yachts. Of his chisel, Rogers says: “That does it all. Gothic Roman. Old English. Script.” Ambitious projects such as a compass table emerge from his studio. At the moment, he’s transforming an iron patio table and chairs with maple, American walnut, and mahogany rescued from a turn-ofthe-last century wardrobe. Old wood tends to find its way into Rogers’s shop, where slabs of juniper stand alongside black walnut. A pair

of doors from an old powerboat stand alongside. “I’ll probably slice them up and make picture frames,” says Rogers. That’s more or less how Rogers’s drawing of the tug Alice of Seattle hanging nearby got its frame. The oak used to be part of a dock. Maritime drawings in ink or ink and watercolor, a creative outlet Rogers pursues in winter, hang in the studio’s front room alongside nameboards, ship’s models, and neatly-labeled drawers full of tools. Like the studio’s slabs of wood, old tools seem to come home to the Severn Street shop. People give them to Rogers, because, as he says, “They know I’ll do something with them. Use them, restore them, or give them away to someone who’s deserving.” Ergo, the pair of 19th century clamps that claim storage space alongside the dozens of other clamps used in the woodworker’s trade. Rogers pulls out a pre-World War II chest reel hand drill. “Its Forstner bit drills excruciatingly clean holes,” he points out.

Rogers also hangs onto the old country in his own way. His studio is named for the ravens that dwell in the Tower of London; legend says the British Empire will fall when they leave. In one of his back rooms stands a game called a bar billiards table, straight from England. “This one still takes a shilling,” he says. A shilling, eh? As charming and old world as a ship’s joiner creating handcarved nameboards for yachts using the same chisel he got as a kid.

Eastport 32

om Weaver and Mick Price took us out on their new Eastport 32. Weaver is the president of the Eastport Yacht Company, and Price is the primary designer of the boat. (Weaver is also a designer, and provided his tweaks to the design.) These friends are both steeped in boat and yacht experience, and they know what it takes to put together a goodlooking, fine-performing boat.

The Eastport 32 sports a Chesapeakestyled deadrise shape with a bit of Carolina flare and a touch of tumblehome thrown in. She has a low, sweet sheer line and a party-sized cockpit, together with comfortable accommodations for a weekend cruise.

Checking out the boat before the ride, we found a good-looking, well thought out boat with a lot of cool ideas. There is plenty of seating in the cockpit under a long, hard canopy that provided good sun shade. The galley is up, under the canopy where the action is. Granite countertops are standard 42 November 2008 PropTalk

in the galley and head. The upholstery on the seats and settees is made from the hides of virgin Ultraleather cows. The hardtop is enclosed at the forward end. The remainder of the hardtop area can be enclosed with zip-in, roll up, drop down, zip out, stow away canvas and clear plastic curtains. The helm position features deluxe, Australian-built Navigator helm seats; very substantial competitors of the benchmark Stidd chairs, the Barcalounger of helm seating. These chairs matched up with a remote-controlled wide screen and beer would constitute couch potato heaven.

The workmanship throughout is very good. Hidden areas are finished and clean. There is a substantial amount of room in the bilges and a lot of stowage throughout. The glasswork throughout is fair and smooth, and the detailing, including the non-skid, is crisp and well-defined. Finished secondary liner molds are used in the overheads and are used extensively below to

create a “hoseable” interior. The use of trim detailing makes the interior inviting rather than stark, however, so the overall effect is that of an easily maintained, comfortable accommodation. The power package is a pair of Volvo D3 190-horsepower diesels in boxes in the cockpit. The boxes blend into the cockpit seating so that they do not visually or physically intrude into the arrangement. By lifting the hinged boxes, you gain very good access to the engines.

The ventilation to the engines is through air intakes inside the cockpit that are baffled for noise attenuation. This also keeps salt spray and mist out of the engine spaces. The noise level in the cockpit is not any higher than that of a boat with intakes in the hull. The propellers are housed in pockets, or tunnels, keeping the draft to a gunkholer’s dream of 22 inches. As we remember from an earlier lesson, burying as much as 40

percent of a propeller disc in a pocket does not materially affect performance. To check out the performance, we took her out on the Bay. Idling out of Back Creek, the engines turned over at 800 RPM, and her speed was 5.2 knots. Low speed control was very good.

There was a bit of a chop on the Severn Roads and the Bay. Running her up to full speed, (WOT in the parlance of professional boat testers, PBTs) read 3650 rpm, and the GPS said that we were making

reducing the chance of someone snagging you while cruising down the marina fairway.

The other standard item is, of course, the boat’s signature hydraulically operated pickup-style tailgate in the transom that allows you to fish or jump overboard without climbing over the washboard. This drop-down door becomes your swim platform that folds away so you cannot dent it backing into a slip. It’s completely cool and functional, like the rest of the boat.

29.6 knots over the bottom. The Eastport 32’s ride was soft with no tendency to pound in the chop or in powerboat wakes, and her acceleration was quick. Hard turns to port and starboard were crisp, controlled, and tight, with a light inboard bank. Important in a boat with tunnels, there was no ventilation of the propellers in the hard turns. High cruise RPM was 3300, for a 28-knot speed. At 2500 RPM, the speed was 19 knots, and the wake was still low, indicating good efficiency. At 2000 RPM, we were moving at 14 knots. This gives an owner a good selection of cruise speeds and fuel consumption venues.

The base boat, which Weaver says was essentially the one we tested, is priced at $278,000. Options include air conditioning, a Good-Ole-Boy aft-side helm station, teak cockpit sole for your scrubbing pleasure, and more powerful engines.

Sea March by Rick Franke


ff our port beam the comforting flash of the Thomas Point Light repeated rhythmically. Miles ahead and off our bow twinkled the array of red lights adorning the vast antenna farm on Greenbury Point. In the clear, crystalline air, each light had an almost star-like quality to it, as though pointing the way to home, but not tonight. It was a few degrees above freezing, a clear, still, moonless night on the Chesapeake in early March, that season when the days begin to hint of spring, but the nights still belong to deep winter. We did not turn for home that night, because the year was 1962, and we were on a sea march. A Sea March? Only the U.S. Army could come up with such a self-contradictory phrase. I was in the open wheelhouse of an Army LCM-8 on its way to Delaware to keep the world safe for Democracy… In the 1950s many small towns, including Annapolis, had Army Reserve companies in addition to National Guard units. Ours was the 464th Transportation Company (medium boat), housed in a converted Pontiac dealership on West Street next to

44 November 2008 PropTalk

Chris’ Pool Hall. The medium boat referred to was a Landing Craft, Mechanized, Mark 8, or a “Mike” boat for short. We had two of them, which were docked at City Dock at the foot of Prince George Street and were used once a month for training. Mike boats were brutes, but they were very effective ones. Picture a 73-foot-long steel shoebox, with a hinged ramp on one end and 800 horsepower on the other, and you begin to get the idea. Two banks of GM 671 diesels provided the horsepower, with two engines driving each propeller through a common transmission. The two banks were controlled by an early version of single-lever controls mounted next to the five-foot spoked wheel. The widely spaced propellers coupled with a flat bottom and big barn door rudders, supported and protected by heavy skegs, produced a vessel that was far from beautiful but surprisingly maneuverable and virtually indestructible. The boats were designed to deliver men and material to a beach and could transport a M-60 Tank or a fully equipped infantry company of 200 men at over 10 knots.

In the cold war era of the 50s, the draft was still in effect, and as young men entered their senior year in high school, they began to dread the arrival of the letter of greetings from the President. An alternative, pitched by recruiting sergeants, was to volunteer for the reserves, go off for a mere six months training, and spend the rest of your eightyear hitch going to drills one weekend a month, right in your own home town. I signed up along with many other young Annapolitans. Many of the names on our unit roster can still be found in the local phone book, such as Campbell, Hicks, Krissoff, and Cantler. In the first year of the Kennedy administration, most Americans had never heard of South East Asia. All attention was focused on Europe, where Armageddon was supposed to begin with a vast tank battle between the forces of NATO and the Warsaw Pact on the plains of East Prussia. When the East Germans built the Berlin Wall in the summer of 1961, that possibility did not seem remote at all. President Kennedy recalled the reserves to active duty, and we found ourselves at Fort Eustis on the James River for a year.

As the crisis in Europe simmered down, and it was obvious we would not be needed to ferry tanks across the Rhine River, the Army came up with some training exercises to keep us busy. One of those activities was a “Sea March” to Fort Miles on Cape Henlopen to conduct over-the-beach training for a variety of armor and truck units. This is how I found myself shivering in the open steering station of a Mike boat on that cold March night. We loaded the entire battalion onto our boats and headed up the Bay that March,

11, and were so underpowered, they would barely do five knots empty. Standard procedure when we operated together was to tie a Mike boat on each quarter of an LCU and pull it along at a breakneck eight knots. Fort Miles is now a Delaware State Park, but it had been a major amphibious base during WWII. A portion of the base was reopened and became our home for three months of almost daily operations. We would load the first vehicles at 0600, go around the long breakwater and assault the beach on the ocean side of Cape Hen-

finally deactivated and returned to reserve status at the end of that summer. Our boats went back into mothballs, and the 464th moved to the Washington Navy Yard. Most of us left the reserves as soon as we could. History moved on, and very few people even remember the Berlin Wall crisis, eclipsed as it was by subsequent events. But every now and then, when I’m on the Bay after dark and I see the red lights on the three remaining towers on Greenbury Point, I remember a young soldier shivering in the cold on a clear March night.

We loaded the entire battalion onto our boats and headed up the Bay

passing Annapolis around midnight and arriving at the Curtis Bay Army Depot around dawn, where we loaded the vehicles of the 150th Armored Cavalry from Huntington, WV. The West Virginians were a game lot, but most had never seen so much water before. About half were seasick before we left Curtis Creek. We proceeded up the Bay and through the C&D Canal. Mixed in with our Mike boats were about a half dozen Landing Craft, Utility (LCU). These boats were relics left over from the Korean War era. They were over a hundred feet long, with a crew of

lopen. We’d do this three times a day and then return to our floating docks. I was fortunate during this period that the non-com who was nominally in charge of our Mike was not fond of boats, so I did almost all the driving. I learned a lot about boat handling during those three months. Although the Mike boats looked awkward, with a little practice, you could put one propeller ahead, the other astern, turn the wheel hard against the twist and waltz them sideways, even against the wind, and park along the dock in a space no longer than the boat. In the early summer, we returned to Fort Eustis (by Sea March, of course) and were

Winter Prep:

You mean you can really use vodka?

by Gary Reich

Some seasoned mariners swear by cheap, plastic-bottle vodka from the nearest discount liquor station. The question, of course is, “What should we do with the leftover fluid?”


n late September, as the southern hemisphere continues its slow wobble toward the sun, the first of what will be many pushes of cool, dry air works its way down from the North Pole toward Bay country. Leaves change color, Canada geese arch in tight formation, and rockfish send flashes of silver skyward as they fatten up for the long cold season ahead. While we sit in our homes watching the football seasons wind up to conclusion and the festivities from Times Square, our boats sit exposed to a cold and frosty blast. If we take the proper steps when we lay them up, everything will be ready to go when spring returns. But carelessness is often accompanied by swift punishment from Old Man Winter. In the worst case, a thru-hull freezes and bursts, sending your boat to the bottom. In minor fashion, the damage can be as insignificant as a broken showerhead. A little preparation in the fall can avoid most negative scenarios.

Ethylene glycol-based antifreeze, usually found in automotive systems, has no business in the marine environment. It is highly toxic. Propylene glycol-based antifreeze is what you want to use. This chemical is harmless to the environment, and it’s even found in consumables such as ice cream and lipstick. You can find the good stuff at any ship’s store, RV supply house, or even your local hardware store. For potable water systems, some seasoned mariners swear by cheap, plastic-bottle vodka from the nearest discount liquor station. The question, of course is, “What should we do with the leftover fluid?” For the raw-water side of your engine, make sure you get non-toxic engine antifreeze, which has corrosion inhibitors to keep rust at bay.


This is where the vodka comes in. First, open all of the outlets (sinks, showers, etc.) and run them until you have emptied your freshwater tanks (when the outlets start to sputter). Once you have sufficiently emptied the system, close all of the outlets except for the one farthest away from the water tank. Next, depending on the size of your system, introduce the non-toxic antifreeze into your water tank and run the pump until the vodka or the pink antifreeze, depending on your choice of chemical, is coming out of the outlet. Repeat the process for all the outlets including the hot water side. Don’t forget any outside freshwater mixers you might have. Water filters can be changed in the springtime when you flush your system. Hot water tanks and accumulator tanks should be drained and laid up. Refer to your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s specifications for winterization. Be sure to tag the breaker for the hot water heater so you don’t turn it on dry in the spring and burn out the element.


Other Water Systems

Many marine air conditioning systems rely on raw water to do the job. Simply close the raw water intake for the air conditioning circulation pump, remove the hose from the seacock, place the hose into a jug of antifreeze, and run the pump until pink liquid flows from the air conditioning discharge. Same goes for raw-water washdown systems, live well pumps, etc.

For winterizing the cooling system, most folks remove the raw-water intake hose from the intake seacock and dip it into a jug of antifreeze or a larger container with a few gallons. It’s as simple as starting the engine and running it until antifreeze is coming out of the exhaust outlet. Two people make the job easier. For larger engines, many have good success filling a five-gallon bucket with antifreeze, dipping the hose in, and then running the engine until it is almost empty. It is very important to refill it as many times as it takes to get the antifreeze all the way through the cooling system to the exhaust outlet. For gasoline and diesel inboards that are equipped with a hand crank, follow the fogging and fuel delivery system winterization techniques, as outlined in the following outboard engine section. Fogging is not feasible for larger engines.


Outboard Engines

Flush the entire cooling system with fresh water to remove residual salt and corrosion deposits before layup. Most ship’s stores sell garden hose suction cup kits that fit snuggly over the outboard’s water intake. Once you have thoroughly flushed the cooling system, drain the cooling passages by opening the ports located on the engine and downshaft itself (check your owner’s manual for specifics). Purchase a can of quality fogging oil from your local ship’s store or auto supply house. Fogging oil protects the inside of the engine’s fuel supply and combustion chambers from corrosion. Before you winterize the fuel delivery system (by shutting off the supply from the tank and running the lines dry), take off the air intake to the carburetor. Just as the engine is about to run out of gas, give the carburetor a potent dose of fogging oil to protect the insides of the engine’s fuel system for the winter. Fog the cylinders by removing the spark plugs and giving each chamber a good twoto three-second blast of the oil inside each chamber, and then replace the spark plugs.

Drain and refill the gear case. Draining is as simple as removing the drain plug at the bottom of the unit. Refilling can be a little more challenging since you must refill from the bottom to float off any bubbles through the upper hole. The commercially-available screw-in kits help simplify the process.


Fuel Tanks

Many skippers store their tanks full, as a means to reduce condensation, but you’ll hear a load of debate on the subject. Some folks believe stabilizers don’t work, and that a cup or two of water is easier to deal with than an entire tank of bad fuel, while others believe that water, left to its own devices, will badly corrode even the highest-grade metal tanks. If you plan to go with the “tank full” mode of winterization, you will want to purchase an appropriate stabilization agent and apply it to the tank according to the manufacturer’s instructions. For diesel fuel, Biobor JF is a popular stabilizer that also works to destroy fuel-borne algae and microorganisms that live in diesel fuel. For gasoline, Stabil “freshens” the gas and also works to emulsify water that condenses in the tank over the

winter. Don’t forget to change your filters while you’re fiddling with the fuel system.



First order of business (no pun intended) is to have your holding tank pumped out. After evacuating the contents of the tank at the pump-out station, it’s a good idea to flush and re-evacuate the tank a couple of times with fresh water and also to run fresh water through your heads and associated plumbing/hoses. Once you’ve completed the flushing process, the easiest way to winterize the sanitation end of things is to remove the intake hose for each head. (Be sure to close the seacock first.) Insert the hose into a jug of non-toxic antifreeze, and pump it into the system. This will also leave a little bit of antifreeze in the holding tank to protect it. Next, switch your Y-Valve(s) to overboard discharge and work the solution all the way to your overboard discharge seacocks and then shut it closed. The key is to work antifreeze through every part of the sanitation system: macerators, Y-Valves, manual overboard pumps, and the heads. If you have a LectraSan or other Type

I treatment device, you will need to follow the manufacturer’s very specific instructions on winterization. No use in having a several-hundred-dollar hunk o’ junk aboard come springtime because you ran antifreeze through it or did some other warranty-voiding thing.



The best seacocks have “winterization plugs” that will allow you to drain residual water out of the ball or plug portion of the valve after you have placed it in the closed position. For discharge seacocks, you can simply run antifreeze through them and then close them once fluid is flowing from the thru-hull.



If feasible, remove the batteries from the boat and place them on a trickle charge through the winter (remembering that gel batteries have very specific voltage requirements for charging). Your garage will be fine, but a storage temperature of about 50˚F is ideal. For lead-acid batteries, make sure you top off the electrolyte (distilled water is best). And no worries, concrete/cement cynics, Captain Die Hard of Sears Roebuck fame says, “unless your battery was built before 1967 … you can store it on cement.” If you cannot remove the batteries from the boat, make sure your battery charger is “smart” and doesn’t blast a high-amperage charge on them all winter long. This will greatly reduce the life of your batteries, especially gelled-electrolyte types.



Covering the boat not only reduces its exposure to the elements, but also helps to protect drainage scuppers from ice and melting snow. More than a few boats sink every year when melting snow turns to ice, and then cracks a below-the-waterline thruhull attached to a cockpit scupper or deck drain.

50 November 2008 PropTalk

The old blue tarp method is tried and true, while others have custommade canvas for the job. The trick is to protect the boat from the elements while keeping ice and snow from drainage areas, especially if the boat is in the water. Shrink-wrap virtually eliminates most storage problems but can introduce moisture if not properly vented. Make sure your installer puts vents in and also protects any chafe points. Boats painted with two-part polyurethane paints must have a foam barrier installed between the shrinkwrap and paint, as the plastic can cause paint blistering.


Miscellany for “in the water” boats

Stuffing boxes (drive shaft(s) and rudder(s)) should be wrenched shut so no water drips in. Tag the nut so you remember to readjust it in the spring. Exhaust ports should be tapped closed with wooden plugs in case heavy snow forces them under water. Dock lines should be fitted with chafe protection at all rub points and hefty spring lines fitted to keep the boat from getting stuck under the dock during extreme low tides.


An ounce of prevention…

By now, you’re likely nursing a set of bruised and bloody knuckles, a twisted back, and questioning your involvement in the outdoors. There really is nothing worse than sitting around all winter wondering how your boat is faring. If you’ve followed some really simple steps in the fall, you’ll have no need to wonder how she is while you’re sitting in your lounge chair watching the fourth quarter count down.

Going to the Show: Get Set To Be Amazed!

The U.S. Powerboat Show has once again rocked City Dock with exhibitors, experts, gear, gadgets, people, and the main attraction—a couple hundred spectacular new powerboats with banners flying high!


he newest of the new in powerboating is in Annapolis for your viewing pleasure. Check out about 150 boat brands (20- to 75-footers) and everything else you and your boat have to have from nearly 500 exhibitors! Tenders and trawlers, fishing and performance boats, cruisers and motor yachts, Down Easters and inflatables… You name it; they are here. Accessories and apparel, marinas and magazines (hint, hint), and engines and electronics are just a few of the goodies on hand. Meandering the maze of docks, tents, and boats, even veteran Show goers sometimes scratch their heads and look to the skyline to get their bearings. To help you make the most of your Boat Show experience, we created this special Boat Show section. Here, you’ll find insider tips about everything you’ll need to know. We cover showtimes, parking, seminars, hot new boats, what’s outside the gates, some local lore, and a few fun facts. Stop by and visit PropTalk staff at our usual spot in Booth F6 along Ego Alley. We’d love to meet you.

Showtimes Press/Trade/VIP Day Thursday, October 16—10 a.m. to 6 p.m. $35 (all ages)


General Admission Days Friday-Saturday, October 17-18—10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, October 19—10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Adults $16 per adult; $8 per child ages 12 and younger


Parking, Football, and Such

n every Show day except Saturday, take Route 50, and exit at Rowe Boulevard/Route 70 (Exit 24). Head toward Annapolis and follow signs to nearby Boat Show Parking. Shuttle buses will take you to and from City Dock on a continuing schedule from 9 a.m. until one hour after the Show closes each day. On Saturday, October 18, Show parking will be relocated to Riva Road, because Navy football is at home against Pittsburgh (3:30 p.m.). Take Route 50 (Exit 22), follow signs to the Show parking lot, and take a free shuttle. Show week is a good time to “set chicken eggs and cut hair,” according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac. “Warm and sunny” are the buzz words, with temperatures three degrees above normal. (Bring a light jacket for when the sun goes down and the rum comes out.) Public restrooms are attached to the Harbor Master’s office just outside the Main Show Gate in addition to the portable ones provided within the Show.

Boat Show Tips * Wear comfortable shoes. You will

walk a lot. Don’t let your feet hold you back. Slip-on and slip-off shoes are best.

* Bring small sticky return address labels. As you tour

the Show, you will, no doubt, sign up for more than a few mailing lists and even enter a few drawings. Why fumble for your pen or, even worse, wait in line to use someone else’s? Simply stick a label and continue on your way.

* Park smart. Arrive early and park in Eastport. The

walk across the bridge and into the Show will be a great warmup. Or, pick up the water taxi at the Chart House dock. If you arrive late—after, say, 9:30 a.m.—park at the stadium lot off Rowe Boulevard or at the Riva Road lot (Saturday only) and take the free shuttle into the Show.

* Take a water taxi. Annapolis is blessed with a first-class

fleet of water taxis. This is a fun way to move around town during the Shows and throughout the season. While you’re underway, chat up the driver. Water taxi captains are typically some of the town’s best sources of news and restaurant tips. Water taxi contacts: (410) 263-0033 or VHF 68.

* Plan your Show route. If you need to speak with someone specific or carefully investigate a product, service, or boat, the best time to do this is first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon. Crowds peak from about 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday is the busiest day, and Monday is the slowest.

* Bring some cash. There are ATMs around, but a pre-filled

pocket will make for smiling faces. Pit beef sammies, beverages, cool bottle openers, little battery-operated fans, nutty buddies handed over the fence, and a plethora of other musthave treats will line the aisles.

* Be prepared to: take off your shoes before boarding most boats, stand in line (that’s a good time to mingle and read all the literature you will have picked up), dive into the tents at the first sign of rain, exchange business cards, and take notes and photos every time you see something cool!

* Tell the vendors that you read PropTalk Magazine. Every little bit helps when you’re trying to “cut a deal.”

Boat Show Tidbits

by Allison Blake


f you slip into Chick & Ruth’s Delly for breakfast during the Boat Shows, go ahead and order some eggs. What’s cracked into the skillet will be one or even two individuals among more than 120 dozen eggs (1440 eggs) consumed at the Main Street mainstay on any given boat show Saturday or Sunday. The “delly potatoes” on your plate? A mere smidgen of the 300 pounds consumed. If you order Pusser’s signature rum cocktail, called the Painkiller, you’ll be quaffing one of approximately 25,000 consumed over the two weekends. Think about that: 25,000! The rest of Pusser’s signature rum drinks sold add up to only 7000. If you buy a Nutty Buddy from the Optimists Club, you’ll be one of 3000 people spending $3 a pop on the ice cream treats made right here on the Eastern Shore. If you’re in line for the Fleet Reserve’s pit beef, you’ll tuck into a few bites of 9000-10,000 pounds of beef sold during the duo of Boat Show weekends. If you stop into Annapolis’s maritime shopping central, Fawcett Boat Supplies, Inc., head for the shoe department. If it’s the U.S. Sailboat Show weekend, that guy preparing to buy boat shoes will be purchasing one of 650 pairs typically sold over the weekend. Powerboat Show weekend? It’d be one of 350 pairs sold. That’s a drop-off of more than 50 percent. Plus, it (sorta) proves that hunches can pan out. If asked, you would have guessed that the sailors snap up the boat shoes, wouldn’t you? Sure you would. Scroll through your mental file of sail vs. power clichés, and see if you can’t come up with another. Here’s one from Mangia, the Italian pizzeria at the bottom of Main Street: “Powerboaters want something quick and fast,” says manager Mike Mishoe. “Powerboaters are built for speed. Obviously.” It’s those sailors who linger over a glass or two of pinot grigio. But sometimes, the numbers don’t bear out the clichés. If you’ve ever heard that powerboaters drink beer and sailors drink rum and wine, think again. There’s no discernable pattern, reports Gary Reiner, director of operations for the well-located Mills Fine Wine and Spirits at the bottom of Main Street. “One year, the powerboaters drank more wine, and the sailboaters appeared to be buying more beer. Every year it’s different,” he says. “It’s up to the universe. Whatever it delivers.”

Thus the name, Soggy Dollar. Chesapeake mariners may enjoy the season’s first taste of nutmeg in three levels of potency at Pusser’s Caribbean Grille on the west side of Ego Alley right at the Marriott gate to the Show. Boat Show bartenders premix the lethal concoction of pineapple juice, orange juice, and cream of coconut daily in five-gallon buckets. Each drink contains ice, Pusser’s dark rum, and the mix topped with freshly grated nutmeg. Pusser’s is the official rum of the British Royal Navy. Until 1970, sailors of Great Britain’s Royal Navy were issued a daily ration of rum by the ship’s purser. “Purser” over the years became “Pussers.” Please bring one to Booth F6 for the thirsty editor of PropTalk Magazine; thank you.

tax. For tax purposes, the purchase date is the date you make the final payment or take possession of by J. Dirk Schwenk the boat. To avoid the tax, you must file a completed Maryland B110 Affidavit of Out-of-State Use form, which your boat dealer should have. If you buy a boat outside of Maryland and take delivery and final possession elsewhere, the boat can return to Maryland without tax for up to 90 days. You may keep the boat in Maryland for additional days in the calendar year if it spends fewer days in Maryland than it does in a single jurisdiction other than Maryland. Time spent commissioning does not count as time in Maryland. The statute is ambiguous about how this works, however, so you may want to conduct final settlement after commissioning is complete. Going South? Florida taxes boats that arrive in that state within six months of purchase or are owned by people that also own real property in Florida.

Boat Tax Tips for Show Shoppers


s you get set to buy a boat at the Boat Show, it helps to know the basics of our state boat taxes. The Maryland boat tax is five percent of fair market value on boats purchased in, titled in, or principally used in Maryland. The tax is payable to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and the money is earmarked for waterway improvements, water access, and to encourage the public use of the state’s marine assets. Penalties (10 or 100 percent) and interest (18 percent) apply if the tax is not paid within 30 days of the boat becoming taxable. Boats to be registered, titled, or principally used in Maryland should pay the tax at purchase. If you are buying a boat in Maryland to take to another state or jurisdiction, the boat must leave Maryland within 30 days to avoid the Maryland

Thinking of buying a boat through an out-ofState LLC? Taxability is generally measured by the location of the boat, not the location of its owner. Delivery out-of-state or offshore may allow a purchaser to avoid the immediate imposition of sales tax by Maryland. Don’t forget that if you bring the yacht back for extended use in Maryland, DNR is going to want that five percent, and if it believes there was a fraudulent effort to avoid tax, there will a 100 percent penalty and interest of 18 percent. For more boat tax tips, call (410) 263-4464, email, or visit Editor’s Note: Since the Boat Show is in Annapolis, we’ve focused on Maryland.

Beyond the Boat Show

by Rowenna Thorson

18th century when it was known for its expensive residential homes and fine arts venues. Fashionable, extravagant mansions became coffee shops with upstairs apartments. Opera houses disappeared in favor of Irish pubs and novelty shops. Even after so many years and changes, Maryland Avenue retains its charm, expertly doing a balancing act between historical street and trendy shopping area. Nestled between restaurants are art galleries, antique stores, and enough specialty gift shops for any treasure seeker to find something special. You can still hear horse-drawn carriages clip-clop-clopping along the avenue, but now they must wend their way between cars parked bumper to bumper and tourists snapping photos.


Take time out from the Show to tour our town. You won’t want to miss the dining, the shopping, and the drinking opportunities that abound. The PropTalk-recommended walking tour starts at a central location: Maryland Avenue.


Deep in the Heart of Town

he top of Maryland Avenue opens onto State Circle, which lassos the State House, a Georgian-style building constructed in 1772. The Capitol building was the site of George Washington’s resignation as General of the Continental Army after the Revolutionary War and the signing of the Treaty of Paris. Maryland legislators still use the building and frequent local establishments. A stroll to the end of the street, and you’re at the Naval Academy. When the Naval Academy was founded in 1845, Maryland Avenue was the entryway to the main gate. The main entrance has been relocated, but the Maryland Avenue entrance remains, and it’s located with convenient access to

the Academy chapel, the crypt, and stunning views. Guided tours are available every half hour. In addition to visiting a museum that offers exhibits and videos covering the history of the Navy and current life for midshipmen, visitors are free to wander the grounds. In 1708, people strolled up Maryland Avenue toward State Circle. The cobblestone street was populated with quaint shops, taverns, and homes. There were boats on the harbor, crabs to be eaten, and drinks to be had. Three hundred years later, I still find myself tripping on the loose, uneven cobblestones as I walk up the historic street toward the statehouse. It looks a bit different than it did in the

Two Schools of Thought

round the corner from Maryland Avenue is St. John’s College. When I mention that I go to school in Annapolis, the typical response is a look of disbelief and a “You go to the Academy?!” After I assure them that I couldn’t do 20 push-ups to save my life, I have to explain that while the Naval Academy is the biggest and most well-known school in Annapolis, it is not the only school. Started in 1696, St. John’s College is the third oldest college in the nation. Founded before Annapolis was even incorporated, the college is a treasure trove of history mixed with modernity. The college is built around McDowell Hall, the third oldest academic building in continuous use in the country. The college is also home to memorials for the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and World War I as well as a Liberty Bell replica. The buildings are some of the oldest in the town, and the “Great Books” course of study at St. John’s includes texts from Homer to Heidegger. Yet, the campus is full of lively young students, who despite their penchants for ancient literature, bring a fresh, new spirit to this historic town. Though the two Annapolis colleges do not have many chances for interaction, every spring they duke it out in a croquet match on the front lawn at St. John’s. These two very different groups of students congregate with a healthy dose of rivalry and community spirit.


Continuing Around Town…

minute’s walk from State Circle is Church Circle, home of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church. The historic district branches off from these two circles, which serve as the epicenter of the city. Take the second turn off of the circle, and you’ll end up on West Street, surrounded by museums, restaurants, spas, shops, and boutiques of all kinds.

West Street is a modern blend of commercial, residential, cultural, and professional elements. The street is constantly bursting with activity and buzz. Live music bleeds out into the streets from pubs, restaurants, wine bars, and coffee shops. Main Street also begins at Church Circle. This street connects the circle to the City Dock, but it is not just a means to an end. This street is jampacked with whatever kind of restaurant you could want. From Irish pubs to sushi bars and quaint breakfast places with sandwiches named for locals, you’ll find it on Main Street, along with a spatterMore About Town… ing of trendy shops, antiques boutiques, Whether on foot, horse, boat, trolley, or Segway, there’s a guided tour for everyone.

down Compromise Street, is the bridge to the “Other Side”: The Maritime Republic of Eastport. Though technically part of Annapolis, don’t tell the locals that! When bridge repairs were required 10 years ago, The Maritime Republic was founded, and still retains its very distinctive character. Rivalry between


the Annapolis side and the Eastport side of the bridge comes in the form of good-natured competitions, with the Across-the-Creek Tug-O’-War, and the 0.05K (164 feet!) Bridge Run. Eastport was established long before these traditions became, well, traditions. The first bridge over Spa Creek was erected in 1870. The quaint neighborhoods scattered with high quality, one-of-a-kind restaurants, pubs, parks, and maritime businesses make it well worth the trek across the bridge.

appily, November’s Club Notes have been expanded, thanks to the legwork of our roving editor, Joe Evans, and all the super stories and fine photos our club reps have shared. Mixed in with their great reports of where the parties, fishing action, and fun are on the Bay, we’ve got news from rendezvous of big boats and classic cruisers, good-deeddoings, a rescue adventure, turtles on trawlers, and more...

Treating Veterans to a Bay Cruise


Vets Day hosted by the Northern Virginia Sail and Power Squadron. Photo courtesy of Frank Shults

ver wonder what you might do for a wounded veteran of our armed forces? The Northern Virginia Sail and Power Squadron (NVSPS) and the Chesapeake YC recently took several wounded war veterans out for a Day on the Bay. Working with the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the Chesapeake YC, we offered powerboat and sailboat rides to a group of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans over Labor Day weekend. Despite threatening weather conditions, 18 soldiers and family members showed up for our gala event. The weather turned out to be beautiful

all afternoon, and the hearts of everyone involved grew in size and depth as friendships were formed and stories of personal tragedies were shared. Most of the soldiers were patients at Walter Reed for about a year; many were looking forward to heading home within the coming months. According to Walter Reed officials, boat rides have become one of the favorite recreational activities of our soldiers. One service member commented to his advisor, “Since returning home from Iraq over eight months ago, I had not slept at night nor been able to relax in the day. But following that boat ride, I slept my first good night’s sleep, and I can relax again.” Upon returning from our voyages to Annapolis, St. Michaels, and the West and Rhode Rivers, our guests were treated to a wonderful evening including dinner, friendship, and enough great food to feed an army (pun intended)! Following dinner, the soldiers were given boating shirts and hats donated by Chesapeake YC’s Auxiliary. Old timers and young soldiers were bonded by the unspoken experiences of combat separated by generations or simply admiration of our service men and women for their courage. It was a truly wonderful experience., —by Frank Shults

Pick One: Your Boat or Your Life?

n September 3, crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel from Old Point Comfort Marina in Hampton, VA, I was with captain Rebecca Colaw, Lori Kuhn, and Lisa Cumming aboard Liv A Lit’l on our way to dine at a restaurant along the Lynnhaven Inlet in Virginia Beach. We are members of the Hampton Roads Sail and Power Squadron. Joking, at first, we noticed what appeared to be a boater near the entrance to Lynnhaven Inlet “having fun doing donuts” in a 17-foot Carolina Skiff. We soon realized that there was no one on the boat, and the situation immediately turned into a search and rescue operation. We soon spotted a father and son floating about 40 yards from their boat. When the two were within reach, the skiff’s captain promptly asked, “Permission to come aboard, Captain!” One of the two

was wearing an inflatable bright yellow life jacket, which was the only “noticeable object” spotted in the water. The two said they had been in the water for about 10 minutes. We retrieved both of them from the water. “It was just like bringing a skier back onboard after a day on the lake,” says Colaw. Once the two were safely brought aboard, they asked us if we would be able to stop the skiff. Colaw replied, “I’ll save your life, but I won’t save your boat!” She then radioed a “PAN PAN” to identify the emergency situation to all boats in the area as well as communicate with the USCG Hampton Roads Sector to request their assistance with the runaway vessel. Colaw says, “It was just like we learned in the book,” referring to the USPS Safe Boating Course she had just recently completed. How did the two end up in the water? The

father said when he “bent down to pick up the GPS,” the flat-bottom boat listed just as a wave hit the boat broadside, throwing them into the water. Neither could remember the specific event, because “it had happened so fast.” Arriving in a 25-foot response boat, assisted by a 45-foot response boat from Station Little Creek (SLC), USCG personnel brought the skiff under control by heaving lines into the engine’s propeller to slow the rotation of the propeller. They then used a boat hook to disengage the throttle, stopping the boat. USCG Petty Officer First Class Charles Poston, a coxswain at SLC, said, “If they had used their kill switch, this situation could have been prevented.” We have invited the two boaters to join our squadron’s next safe boating class! —by Jean Grunwald

Lymans Captivate Locals


n August 23, the Lyman Boat Owners Association in Galesville, MD put together a first-time gathering on the Chesapeake. These are primarily lapstrake designed wooden boats, but the Sandusky Ohio-based company also made fine fiberglass craft in the final years of production. Lymans are famous for their high quality construction and were designed to handle the rough water that Lake Erie dishes out. They also are excellent boats for the Bay and its tributaries. Twenty-five people delighted in seeing a 1970 26-foot Cruisette hardtop, 1959 and 1960 23-foot inboard runabouts, 1955 and 1957 16-foot outboards, and a 1975 24-foot Fiberglass Biscayne. Commodore Michael Lloyd flew out for the event, which was arranged by Joe Adams. The gathering featured a jaunt from the mouth of the West River, up the Rhode, around Big Island, and back to Thursday’s Steak & Crab House for a great late-afternoon lunch and a beverage or two. We hope to double or triple our numbers next year and have a more extended gathering maybe with a BBQ, overnight, and raft-up. We know of no better classic wooden utility that can handle the Bay chop and look so good doing it!,, —Report by Michael Parramore and Michael Lloyd —Photos by Al Schreitmueller

Fear Not the Turtles


n September 23, a slow and steady fleet of 87 trawlers proudly displaying their mascot, a turtle or two, began a leisurely trudge up the Choptank River to the recently-renovated Cambridge Municipal Yacht Basin for five days of fun, information, food, and socialization at the Marine Trawler Owners Association’s (MTOA) northern rendezvous. On the first day, the entertainment and enlightenment options organized by Chesapeakebased co-chair people, Jacqui Johnson, Jeff Robinson, and Mike and Kay Jones, and the town of Cambridge, kicked off a non-stop schedule including a local spa experience, a tour of the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge, art gallery tours, many happy hours, trips to St. Michaels, knitting classes, wine tasting, dance lessons, high tea, a book discussion, live music under the stars, seminars galore, and the

first Gangplank Fashion Show, featuring costumes made from onboard material with the emphasis on things nautical, from the bilge to the bridge, from rope to duct tape. The Northern Rendezvous party did not end with Sunday’s Bloody Mary and mimosa brunch and the evening concert. Many in the fleet simply dropped lines and headed out for a week of low-speed cruising around the Bay organized by Cindy and Al Gellene to include serene anchorages such as Plaindealing Creek at the Tred Avon River, the Rhode River near High Island, Ridout Creek off Whitehall Bay near Annapolis, and the Magothy River behind Gibson Island, ending at Anchorage Marina on the Patapsco for the Fells Point Festival. —Report and photos by Joe Evans/PropTalk

Classics Grace Charm City

wenty-one vintage cruising yachts belonging to members of the Classic YC of America (CYCA) gathered at the HarborView Marina and YC in Baltimore to celebrate their fourth and last floating rendezvous of 2008. The event also served as a modest boat and vintage car show as well as the board of directors’ meeting. The yachts came from as far away as Solomons and New Jersey. CYCA came together naturally in 1971 after informal classic boat festivals held in Cambridge and Rock Creek, MD. The stated purpose was to promote the ownership, preservation, restoration, and knowledge of classic pleasure vessels. However, based on the scene at HarborView, the club exists to have fun, eat well, and bask in the sun and the glory of owning special boats. The essential membership requirement is simply the ownership of a boat that is 25 years old or older that is restored or being restored. The club is not limited to wooden boats.

Off and On

his past year, the Silverton Owners Club met more online than offline. The club hopes 2009 brings more raft-ups, rendezvous, and parties. If you like Silvertons and want to brew up some fun, contact

We Gather Together…


n July 19, 45 members of the Wilmington Sail and Power Squadron (WSPS) had a picnic rendezvous on the Sassafras River. Later, near Sue Island in the Middle River, members shared a picnic and crabs with the local squadron and toured two new boats. Three sailboats took a mini-cruise September 13-14 to gather with 20 to 25 people in Rock Hall, MD. The fall picnic was held in Kennett Square, PA September 28. The club’s Safe Boating Certification classes at McKean High School in Wilmington, DE have begun. The guest speaker for the October Social Gathering completed a 3.5-year circumnavigation onboard his 42-foot boat. —by Dotti Brabson

The Hatteras LRC Club will rendezvous in New Bern, NC October 23-26. Everyone is welcome.


Just Having Fun…

eptember 4-7 brought 12 boats with countless Hatteras 1510 Club members to the fun Tina and Ben Fishel dished out during the National Rendezvous in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. All Hatteras yachts designed between 1971 and 1988 by naval architect Jack Hargrave, either 53 or 58 feet in length with a beam of 15 feet, 10 inches, are eligible for the club. Mad Hatteras and Size Matters were among other vessels braving Tropical Storm Hanna and enjoying the hospitality at the Inner Harbor East Marina, with cocktail parties, yacht tours, a dinner cruise, seminars, and more. —by Helene Butte

Offshore Powerboat Racing National Championships on the Choptank


n September 19 through 21, 35 offshore race teams from across the country gathered on the grounds of the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Cambridge, MD. This was the sixth year that the fleet of overpowered boats has come to race at this five-star resort overlooking the Choptank River. The Chesapeake Bay Power Boat Association (CBPBA) hosts and organizes this Offshore Powerboat Association event. This year the races signified the national championships in eight classes. Chesapeake-based teams were represented in every class, and two rookie teams made their debut. Early arrivals were able to join CBPBA members in the annual golf tournament on Friday. The racing covered two days of action, with the winners determined by combined points from Saturday and Sunday. With cash prizes totaling $25,000, racing was intense around the slick-calm, nearly fourmile oval.

The first set of races featured the smaller four, five, and six classes ranging in maximum speed from 70 to 85 mph. Crofton local Steve Daley strapped into a class-six Rendiel One Design race boat for the first start of his career. The owner of a 38-foot Fountain, he took this opportunity to race by leasing the boat for the race. The deal was cut on Friday night, and Daley raced the next day. He came in third on the first day and a very-close second on day two. “This is about the coolest thing I’ve ever done,” he says. The father and son team of Pat and Dusty Retier from St. Mary’s County launched Thunderstuck, their 26-footer, with hopes of improving on the year’s results. However, they were nipped on Saturday by the Specialized Racing Team, which won the race. On Sunday, the Retiers rallied to win, but Specialized Racing produced the overall championship score and bragging rights.

The final group in the first race was class four, with Jimmy Jernigan of Pasadena racing his 35-foot Fountain, Steady Pumping. “I know I have a chance to win, but I am out here to have fun and to say I was able to do this,” says Jernigan. He finished third on Saturday and had to retire with an engine alarm issue on Sunday as an older Cigarette boat, Bounty Hunter, forged ahead to victory. The big boats in classes one, two, three, super-cat, and extreme raced in the afternoon heats. Brothers Jimmy and Bob Enselmo from Grasonville, MD took their Bull on the Beach, a 32-foot Doug Wrightbuilt catamaran, to the battle and finished third over all. The overall winner was the crew behind Friendly Racing, a 30-foot Vicious Cat. In class two, it was a battle of the Fountains as Strictly Business, Wazzup, and R Rated Racing (from Ocean City, MD)

shook up the river. Strictly Business took the win. R Rated finished third overall. Class one was dominated by the Cleveland Construction Team after the Extractor team spun out on turn one on Sunday, spitting the three crew members into the river. The racers were quickly plucked from the water, and there were no serious injuries. The final races included Extreme and Super-Cat boats traveling in excess of 120 mph. The Chesapeake Bay was represented by the father and son team of Art and Britt Lilly in Chaos, a 40-foot Skater, Mark House from Virginia, the throttle man on Tom Cat, and Todd Harper and Mike Young

with Extreme/Cancun Cantina, a boat owned and operated by the fun-loving dance house of the same name in Hanover, MD. The Chaos team took the win after some tight racing with Talking Trash from New Jersey. Cancun Cantina won the Extreme class. Racing on Sunday was curtailed after Tom Cat flipped on turn three. The crew was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries. At press time, race director Ted Ginnity reported that the prognosis was good for both racers.

im Floyd and his crew at F&S Boat Works in Bear, DE have three major sportfishing boats under construction and another on order. The finishing touches are being applied to Lasik, a 70-footer for an eye surgeon based in New Jersey. This is an enclosed-bridge yacht with 19.5 feet of beam, 2800 gallons worth of fuel tanks, a pair of MTU M-93 2400-hp diesel engines, and a Larry Belkov interior including four full heads and accommodations for 10 sleepers. She will displace about 85,000 pounds and cruise at 38 knots. The anticipated WOT (wide-openthrottle) speed is in excess of 43 knots. She should be splashing around by the time you read this report. Next in line is a 72-footer for a customer who is moving up from an F&S 65. She’s shaping up nicely with a 19-foot, nine-inch beam, tanks for 2780 gallons

of fuel, a displacement of 93,000 pounds, twin MTU 16V-2000-hp engines, a cruising speed of 36 knots, and a WOT pace of about 44 knots. She should be ready to run by next year’s mid-Atlantic billfish season. Right behind her in the shop is the jig for a 70-footer for Thomas Turner in Baton Rouge, LA. She will be a further development on the F&S 70 concept—built for speed, comfort, and raising leviathans. On a sad note, Coal, the black F&S Boat Works Labrador retriever and Floyd’s closest friend lost his battle with a troubled heart and had to be set free. Seems his heart was too big after all. Floyd and Coal were inseparable until the day that Coal had to be put down. According to those who knew Coal, there was not a piece of scrap wood that he didn’t want to chase. He is sorely missed.

Sawdust and Coal, Jim Floyd's late great Lab

Gorilla hose connections at all intersections to resist vibration issues. This one will also feature deep prop tunnels to reduce the designed draft to four and a half feet. The engines will be a pair of 1675-hp C-32 Cats delivering a predicted top speed of 42 knots and a cruise pace of about 35. The props will be custom five-blade wheels by Veems of Australia. The boat will feature three staterooms and full heads made comfy by four 12,000 BTU air-conditioning units, which will also keep the mezzanine cool for the riggers and spectators. Onboard systems support will come from a 21-kW Onan genset with a 15-kW backup unit. The boat could be ready to fish in the spring of 2010. Garufi and Roop are also working on plans for a 54-footer as well as a 40-foot, solar-powered deadrise.


ay Allen at Allen Boats in Cambridge, MD has a 46-foot Markley hull to transform into a proper Chesapeake Bay yacht for John Whitman from Galesville, MD. She should be ready to go in the fall of next year.


he Composite Yacht team in Trappe, MD has two 26-footers to build for the Florida fishing market. The design and tooling for this jaunty sportfishing boat were developed in spare hours and weekends over the course of 2006 and 07 to fulfill a dream imagined by Martin Hardy and his sons for an easilydriven, somewhat high-tech boat that could fish in blue waters and still be nimble enough for Chesapeake Bay action. Initial tests with the prototype and hull #1 powered by 315-hp Yanmar engines had the boats tearing around at 35 knots

Additionally, the crew has an order to finish the bare hull of a 31-foot Willis Beale-designed Down East-style yacht for David Miller in Royal Oak, MD. The hull is being built by RP Boats in Steuben, ME. The plan is to have her cruising the Bay in the spring of 2009.


ugene Evans and his family at Evans Boats along the Crisfield Road delivered a flurry of boats this summer, including the last two 43-footers of an eight-boat order for the Army at Aberdeen Proving Grounds. These boats were built and equipped to patrol the shoreline where the Army tests ordnance. Also in service is a 36-foot research vessel delivered in April that is supporting the testing of unmanned remote-controlled mini-submarines. Evans also built a custom 38-footer for the Disney operation in the Abacos. The boat is organized to haul staff and support Chesapeake Bay Powerboating

people from Marsh Harbor to the resort. She is equipped to seat 35, and she churns along with a single 355 Cummins diesel. The Disney captain and crew joined the boat in Crisfield and cruised her to Florida and across the Gulfstream to the Bahamas in comfort and without incident. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation took delivery of a 50-foot Evans in June to use for educational trips. She is certified for 49 passengers, running on 20-percent biofuel through a Cummins QS electronicallycontrolled engine tuned down to 230 hp for a green-machine approach burning be-

tween six and seven gallons an hour. She is in service at the Foundation’s South Creek location in Hampton Roads. Now under construction in the shop is a 29-footer for Richard Stockton College in New Jersey for research and education duty. Next to her in the shop is a 38-foot extended cabin cruiser for Richard Fadeley of Parksville, MD. This one is getting a 490-hp Cummins diesel. Also coming together for show and tell is a 36-foot by 12-foot outboard-powered fishing boat. Evans plans on rigging her with a pair of F-250 Yamaha four-strokes. She will feature accommodations for overnight trips, a full head, an up-galley, and a big main salon.


huck Clark at Clark’s Fiberglass in Centreville, MD is in the midst of a total rebuild on a 42-foot Lippincott hull for a customer in Chestertown, MD. The boat has new decks, pilothouse, frames, floors, bulkheads, and Awlgrip paint. The original pair of Detroit diesels has been spruced up, and the interior is getting teak trim coated in Epiphanes

varnish as the project heads toward a late October completion.


immerman Marine in Mathews, VA delivered Montrose, a Z-36 to Paul and Sheila Palmer. The Palmers had their first look at a Zimmermanbuilt boat at the 2005 U.S. Powerboat Show in Annapolis. Now under construction at the yard is a Z-31 built on a Duffy hull from Atlantic Boat Company in Maine. This model will essentially be a Z-36 only smaller and with the galley up.

om Weaver at the Eastport Yacht Company in Annapolis recently packed and shipped hull number six of the Eastport 32 series to a customer in Brisbane, Australia. The boat was loaded on a RO-RO (roll-on, roll-off ) ship bound directly for the Brisbane waterfront where Nick and Alison Stump are waiting. The couple flew to Annapolis to sea trial the boat, left obviously pleased with their decision, and are now pacing the docks as their boat and the down-under summer slowly come. Hull eight is in St. Mary’s County, MD with her new owner, who is reported to have remarked after his break-in period checkout, “Back in the spring when I took money out of the market to buy this boat, I worried about making the right decision. Now the market is down 50 percent, and I have a great boat instead.”

Shorebuilt 24-footer features a 9.5-foot beam, entirely composite construction an 80-gallon fuel tank, and a top speed of 38 mph with a 150-hp four stroke. The Shorebuilt 18 has a 6.5-foot beam, no wood, and a distinct, wave-chopping vee forward. The new design will have 8.5 feet of beam and the clean, wave-cutting hull that defines the series.


ill Donohue’s Annapolis Classic Watercraft now located at Sarles Boatyard in Annapolis is fully operational after a major move from a shed on the Navy’s old Greenbury Point yard. The main impetus for the move was the ability to handle larger boats. Sarles has an excellent marine railway leading directly into a covered shed where work can progress in defiance of fickle weather. First on the list at the new place is Art Spinetta’s 38-foot Chris-Craft Sea Hawk for rebuilding and refinish work. Bob Hinman’s 1958 Chris-Craft Capri (Elvis) was also in the shop for restoration work. Also on the recently-completed list are a Herreshoff 12½ for Paul Davignon, skeg and running gear work on Rusty Conner’s 1941 ChrisCraft cruiser, and varnish and paint work on Richard Lowery’s 80-year-old cruiser 82 November 2008 PropTalk

Also in the works is the rehab on a 21-foot Capri, which now sports a new bottom, frames, keel, and chines. The crew recently spruced up a 1941 Chris-Craft Barrel Back, including new bottom planks, fresh paint, and varnish. LeCompte’s son Sergeant Robert LeCompte has returned from his second and last tour with the Marines in Iraq. He and his wife Ashley are now a daily part of the Dockside team, safe and sound, and glad to be home.


ick and Ricky Roe at Roe’s Marine in St. Michaels have splashed Bobby Higgin’s new 46-footer. Everything came together well in the final stages with Ken Daniels from R&D Boat Supply in Cambridge handling the exten-

sive electronics installation while Rick Sr. built out the interior with teak trim. Initial sea trials had the 670 Cummins diesel turning a maximum of 2210 rpm. Cummins specifications indicate a top turn of 2300, so the prop will need some tweaking. Nevertheless, she was making a brisk 28 knots at her break-in pace. Not too bad for a big 46-footer with furniture. Now in the shop is an open-cockpit 26-foot project with a 350 inboard Chevy engine for a customer in Florida.

iffany Yachts on the Great Wicomico River near Burgess, VA continues to make progress on a new 38-foot concept in between commitments to yacht owners for service, repair, and upgrade work at the venerable Cockrell family yard. The cabin top is now resting on the hull as the rubrail is being faired in to match.


eorge Hazzard at Wooden Boat Restoration in Millington, MD is making a new mahogany keel, white oak stem, and frames for a 1946 20-foot Gravette utility boat. Also in the shop is a 20-foot Chris-Craft Riviera for a new bottom. For this restoration, Hazzard is removing the bottom in one piece. He will then loft and build new frames using a copy of the original plans. The strategy is intended to save some time and allow the old planks to be used as templates. An 18-foot 1962 Cruisers Inc. classic in the shop has a new white oak keel, and the hull is being faired with West epoxy thickened with West’s 410 filler before being primed and painted.


om Jones at Crab Alley Boats in Grasonville, MD recently delivered a 16-foot skiff with a 15-hp Nissan engine to Harvey Houck of Nags Head, NC. Jones is building a 19-footer now with forward and aft casting decks along with a pair of swivel seats set up for shallow-water fishing. Crab Alley skiffs are uniquely built using PVC panels and frames finished to yacht standards with Awlgrip paints.

eid Bandy at Bandy Boats in Annapolis has delivered his latest creation, a 25-foot sportfishing dream for Glenn Dixon in Crownsville, MD. The boat is a one-off project molded of E-Glass on Corecell foam with MAS Epoxy. She will have a 300 Suzuki fourstroke on an Armstrong bracket for power. The bracket features underwater lighting for looks and to attract baitfish at night. The owner is mocking up and installing his own electronics and accessory packages. Once that is complete, Bandy will complete the paint work.

In the meantime, Bandy has begun work on an entry in the Professional Boatbuilder Magazine design competition. The parameters of the contest are to build a 16.5- to 18.5-foot boat with a maximum of 25-hp power burning less than two gallons of fuel per hour while maintaining a 15knot cruising speed with four adults (650 pounds). Bandy intends to mold the bottom using Corecell foam, glass, and epoxy. He will use juniper for the topsides dressed out with Sapele trim. He has acquired a couple of vintage Johnson outboards, a 15

Diamond Jim Escapes

or the fourth time in so many years, a speciallytagged striped bass dubbed Diamond Jim has escaped the net in the summer-long Maryland Fishing Challenge. (There were actually three Diamond Jims, one per month beginning in June, with each being viable as the grand-prize winner only for the month it was released.) Nevertheless, more than 1000 hopeful anglers gathered at Sandy Point State Park on September 13 to find out if Governor O’Malley would pull their lucky number as he handed out more than $50,000 worth of prizes to anglers who had caught citation fish across the state and thereby gained entry into a random drawing. Last year, 224 anglers qualified. This year, the action grew to 1345 from 24 states, Canada, and Brazil. When the numbers had been drawn, and the had dust settled, Fred Manage of • October 25-26 Edgewater, MD drove away in a • November 15 2008 Toyota TUNDRA truck and • November 15-16 Edir Sauerbronn Dos Santos • November 15-16 of Rio De Janeiro was on the

Eleven-year-old Hunter Betz from York, PA, Mike Currie of Leonardtown, MD, and James Harrison of Annapolis won $1500 prize packages donated by Bill’s Outdoor Center and an additional $2500 in Boater’s World gift cards for their good luck and efforts. Nathaniel Rowe from Hagerstown, MD received an $800 TAG Heuer watch from Smyth Jewelers, who also had committed to supply the diamond had a $5000 Diamond Jim fish been caught. Boater’s World was prepared to stand behind a $25,000 cash prize to go along with the rock. Additionally, 11 junior anglers were awarded vouchers for guided fishing trips donated by the Maryland Charter

Good Deale

he first annual Deale Pro-Am Fishing Tournament went off without a hitch over the September 6 weekend. Even as lingering rain and wind from Tropical Storm Hanna moved through, the fleet ventured out and caught fish. A couple of amateurs reeled in the first through third biggest rockfish. Jeff Schulte from Edgewater, MD weighed in the first- and third-place winners. Steve Hayden from Shady Side, MD took second. Captain Cindy Sheridan took fourth and was the only pro in the rockfish money. The winning bass weighed 11.95 pounds. The top bluefish was a 4.7 pounder that fell to Captain Jacob Henderson’s charms. The biggest Spanish mackerel weighed 2.48 pounds and was caught by Captain Alex Williams. Tri-State Marine put up special awards for winners on Parker or Grady-White boats. More than $4500 were handed out by the Deale Captains Association, with a portion going to injured war vets at Walter Reed Army Hospital.

PropTalk November 2008 87



aptain Tom Hughes, an Orvis-endorsed light-tackle guide fishing from Chesapeake Beach, MD, knows that cooler nights will cause the early morning shallows to come alive as predator fish chase the bait up against the beaches and rocks. The top-water action will be awesome. Fall is the prime feeding time for stripers as they fatten up for the coming winter. Good hunting areas include the sandy southwest side of the Poplar Island Complex down to Black Walnut Point. On the western shore, try the stretch from Parkers Creek to the Gas Docks at Calvert Cliffs and on to the Cedar Point Rip. Flyfishers should gear up with nine- to 10-weight rods with a red and white pencil popper such as the Orvis skipping bug or a sparse Clouser Deep Minnow on the business end. A six-foot, 20-pound tippet will help turn the fly over in the wind. Put your rod tip in the water as you strip the fly back in dramatic one-foot pulls. If you see a swirl as a fish comes up and misses the lure, keep retrieving. Often, the fish will circle back in a tight turn and get it on the second swipe. If you prefer light spinning tackle, remove the hardware from a large popping lure and tie on a two-foot 30-pound fluorocarbon leader to the trailing hook ring. Tie a tough epoxy-bodied fly on the leader as a trailer for the popper. The popper will get the attention of the fish, and one will surely swim up to take the fly. Just like that. Captain Tom Hughes (433) 690-3164 88 November 2008 PropTalk

aptain Mark Galasso, sailing out of Kent Narrows, expects October and November to bring the greatest number of fish as the Bay comes to life in advance of winter. The baitfish will be leaving the creeks and marshes for deeper water, and the predator fish will be moving to cut them off. Large shoals of bay anchovies, silversides, and peanut bunker will gather in Eastern Bay and other open waters where aggressive stripers and blues will tear into them. Swirling birds, anxious for a free meal courtesy of the rockfish and blues, will show you the way. The largest white perch of the year will settle under blitzing schools of stripers and blues and be happy to have the scraps. Don’t be surprised to find a beautiful speckled sea trout or two in the mix. Try jigging small metal spoons near the bottom to reach the larger stripers, big perch, and the occasional speck. Soft plastic baits are great for fishing up the water column as long as there are no bluefish at the party. The blue’s razor teeth and wasteful habits will mean severed plastic on your hook and wasted money at the tackle shop. The biggest rockfish will be chasing the peanut bunker. Find the menhaden and you will find the stripers. Captain Mark Galasso (410) 827-6188, (410) 310-1200


aptain Gary Neitzey in Centreville, MD is also counting on Eastern Bay to light up with splashing fish. The blues will leave after the first frost, but the stripers will stay well into winter. The lower Chester River will also be a good bet as the stripers and blues cruise the mouths of creeks and ponds where the bait fish will run the gauntlet. When you find breaking fish, cast out a Bass Kandy Delight (BKD) or a bucktail lure to get in on the fun. Jigging spoons will work pretty well also. In shallow waters, prospect with swimming plugs such as the Stillwater Smackit to get the fish’s attention. Captain Gary Neitzey (410) 758-4262, (410) 937-8753


aptain Sonney Forrest and his Fin-Finder team out of Solomons, MD are live-lining for stripers straight into the fall season. The small summer blues have been chased away by the bigger knuckle-busting bluefish, which can be a problem when swimming a live spot out into the current. The blues just chop them in half. But it’s a terrific way for anglers of all ages to have fun. White perch are making a good fall showing at the mouth of the Patuxent River. This is where the Norfolk spot are hiding as well. Captain Sonny Forrest (800) 831-2702


aptain Pete Dahlberg in Solomons, MD picks late October and November as his favorite time for catching fish in the Chesapeake Bay. He likes to run from the Patuxent River to the Eastern Shore Islands (Barren, Hoopers, Bloodsworth, Holland, Southmarsh, and Smith) to find clear waters and hungry fish. Visibility in shallow water is a critical component of success. Focus your effort on points of land where the current rips. Many of these places have submerged stumps and land structure left when the sweeping currents eroded the shore. Striped bass and sea trout hide in these places. Dahlberg likes the six-inch BKD in the chartreuse glitter shade on a quarter-ounce jig head for starters. The three-inch chartreuse Storm Shad lure is also a good choice. If the fish are up and feeding, he goes with a Lonely Angler Needlefish plug or a Storm Chug Bug. On many early fall trips, he catches fish on nearly every point he works on the shallow eastern side of the Bay. The key is to drift quietly toward the target zone. Slip a small mushroom or grappling anchor over the side to hold your spot in a brisk wind or steady current. If you have current flowing over good underwater structure, you will catch fish. Captain “Walleye” Pete Dahlberg (703) 395-9955


aptain Joe Riley in Ocean City, MD is counting on a good wahoo bite offshore based on the records of years past. The tuna action has been up and down all year, so he’s not making any year-end sushi predictions. The bluefin tunas will certainly return and provide some action on their way to the Outer Banks. Riley is moving his boat to Virginia Beach to be closer to the tunas and to enjoy the building striper bite as winter comes on. Captain Mike Hutchins will take over the boat while Riley heads to Guatemala to pioneer a sailfishing program at the Buena Vista Lodge. He’s booking trips for his clients now through March.
