Get Away by Joe Evans

A

staycation is not a vacation. In my experience, taking time off from work to stay at home is an invitation that becomes an obligation to fix stuff around the property—wood, paint, lawn and garden, which can be fun for about an hour. It’s better to abandon the to-do list and get lost somewhere around the Bay. Here at CBM, we go by boat from point-to-point or out-and-back, and up or down the creek or across the Bay for crabs, beer, a sunset and maybe an overnight stay or two. But we don’t always need a boat for this, and some of the best getaways are not very accessible from the water. Sometimes the Bay conditions aren’t right for a cruise. Year before last, we had a trip planned to run to Oxford to watch the log canoes race, but it was set to blow 20 to 25 knots. The crew was not keen on getting wet on the Severn to Tred Avon transit, and they wanted to hit a couple of antique shops anyway. So, I suited up and took the skiff around alone so we could load up and follow the racing after lunch at The Masthead at Pier Street, and I paused a couple of times to harass breaking stripers around Poplar Island. I got drenched. Sometimes it’s better to take a car.

Which is to say, getting away beats any staycation. Let’s go.

Old Salt Boiling sea salt on the Eastern Shore of Virginia by Robert Gustafson

HELENE DOUGHTY PHOTOS

W

14

e entered our sixth salt-making season on a crisp April day, loading three pristine coolers, a wire bushel basket, and a set of 12-foot oyster tongs into a home-built, 17-foot skiff launched from the ramp at Red Bank, a tiny shell-fishing hamlet between Nassawadox and Machipongo on Hog Island Bay. Local metal artist Buck Doughty and I got to talking about the possibility of making our own salt about five years ago. We researched the tradition going back to the 1600s, commandeered Doughty’s 20-gallon, cast-iron, black-duck-anddumplings cauldron, and decided to give salt-making a try. We figured it shouldn’t be more complicated than just boiling fresh sea water. We were only slightly wrong about that. Without salt, our colonial ancestors faced illness or starvation. Valuable meat would rot before it could be eaten, and the abundant piscine bounty of the Bay could not be stored in white oak barrels for winter. When word came in 1613 that Virginia’s barrier islands, not far from Jamestown, offered ideal salt-making conditions, Governor Thomas Dale dispatched twenty men to live on what is now called Old Plantation Creek to establish a saltworks on Smith Island to supply the struggling colony with the indispensable mineral. That effort and subsequent monopolies and government bounties ultimately couldn’t keep up with the burgeoning colony’s needs, but salt-making was never entirely forgotten on the Eastern Shore.

ChesapeakeBayMagazine.com

July/August 2019

The first time we made salt, we thought it didn’t work. We boiled all weekend, and by Sunday night, we had about five gallons of water left from the original 30 gallons, but no salt. We split the water and took it home. The next day, independently, we boiled what we had and suddenly, salt started precipitating out. It’s a pretty cool natural phenomenon. The water finally becomes over-saturated and salt starts to fall to the bottom. We each collected about a half-gallon of Eastern Shore salt, and we were hooked. Since then, we have experimented and refined the process by heating and cooling the water and skimming the large crystals (fleur de sel) off the top of the pot. We still have a lot to learn, but we have been making perfectly good salt from the very beginning. Conditions here are ideal for recreational salt-making. Thanks to the proactive efforts of the Nature Conservancy and others to acquire and forever protect these barrier islands, the waters remain some of the cleanest on the Atlantic seaboard. Abundant stands of hickory, cherry, pine, and oak grow close to the shorelines and buffer the undeveloped land. The scene that unfolds before intrepid adventurers is as wild and untouched as Governor Dale’s salt-boilers would have experienced in the early 1600s. There is not a boat or building in sight. Black ducks and buffleheads fly overhead in twos and threes, and shorebirds collect along their historical breeding grounds from the mouth of the Bay to the northern tip of Assateague. We steer our skiff into Hog Island Bay toward a spot known locally as “The Deeps.” Hog Island is visible across the increasingly choppy water to the east, and just south is Smith Island where Governor Dale’s men made salt for the colony over 400 years ago. Away from the protection of the marsh, the early spring breeze whips up small white caps, and we waste no time in

Step one: Get the water.

dipping about 25 gallons of saltwater into the coolers before swinging the small skiff back into the relative calm of the creek. We glide up to a mudbank, and Doughty begins to sound the bottom with the hand-tongs for that hollow thud of iron hitting live oyster shell. Fresh oysters have become an essential part of our saltwater boiling process. And beer. We fill the wire basket to about half with fat, legal-sized oysters, and cruise back to the ramp and home to let the water in the coolers settle overnight. The next morning, we build a wood fire underneath the cauldron, which hangs by a chain from a tripod of stout saplings. The pot weighs about 100 pounds and takes two to wrestle into place. We’re unsure of the pot’s provenance, but it was probably used for clarifying lard, making apple butter or even salt, back when. We pour in seawater and settle down and open beers for a long wait. After about 20 minutes, steam begins to rise. We talk about marsh-hen hunting and the relative qualities of sea-side versus bay-side oysters; the clam house we share needs some repair, and there’s always the weather to discuss. We add more water and open fresh beers. This is a partnership. Neither of us would contemplate making salt alone.

Around noon our wives appear with offspring, a puppy, cheeses and a bottle of Vintner’s Blend from Chatham Vineyards on Church Creek near Machipongo. Excellent stuff. We put a round of oysters on a grate over the fire. The teenagers take over the cooking duty and pass roasted oysters around as they become available. For a time, standing around a fire is more appealing to them than screen-time indoors. Everyone is laughing and cooing over the new dog. As the oysters become just a pile of shells, and with the wine bottle

empty, the families disperse toward other weekend activities, leaving the ESVA salt-men alone to tend the fire, add water and trade stories. The stars fill a black sky and the water has reduced to about three gallons of strong brine. This is a small batch. Boiling sometimes goes on for two days with periodic middle-ofthe-night wake-up calls to add wood and stoke the fire. We split the brine and take our shares home to finish on kitchen stoves by skimming the large crystals. The result is several pounds of fresh, white sea salt with a slight smoky scent. Crunchy and bright, this is a fine table salt. The salt that falls to the bottom of the pot is finer and rounder. This goes into quart Mason jars for general cooking use. We love this salt for its flavor and because it reminds us where we are, which defines who we are—people content in a skiff in the marsh, tonging oysters, making salt, and spending time together on Virginia’s beautiful Eastern Shore. h Robert Gustafson is an easternshoreman by way of Chicago, Harvard, and a career on Capitol Hill.

BARRIER ISLANDS SALT CO. VIRGINIA’S ARTISANAL SALT MAKERS Anna and David Lee have brought commercial salt-making back to the Eastern Shore of Virginia after a 400-year absence. David, a 100-ton boat captain, and Anna, a former food industry executive, opened Barrier Islands Salt Co. after moving to Cape Charles to enjoy a small-town, coastal lifestyle. They boat-harvest the pure waters off Virginia’s Barrier Islands, the longest expanse of coastal wilderness remaining on the east coast, to make flake sea salt that reflects the merroir of the waters. Since its introduction last year, the salt has been enormously popular on the Eastern Shore and beyond.

Follow us on

To meet demand, the Lees recently acquired a quaint 1930s former gas station in the town of Cheriton and are converting it into a saltworks and retail shop. In addition to their signature sea salt, they plan to begin marketing flavored salts including a rosé-infused version that incorporates rosé wine produced at the award-winning Chatham Vineyards in neighboring Machipongo, Virginia— an unprecedented merroir/ terroir blend.

Fair Winds Leo Wardrup Cup—a cruising event for serious racers, and vice versa by Clara Vaughn

PHOTOBOAT.COM

E

ach August, dozens of sailboats dot the southern Chesapeake Bay, gathering for a weekend of competition and camaraderie during the Leo Wardrup Memorial Cape Charles Cup. The regatta returns for its 16th year this Aug. 9-11, sending cruisers and racers from Norfolk to Cape Charles, on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, and back during the destination race by Broad Bay Sailing Association. “People absolutely love this race,” said Christina Ritger who, with her husband, Ben, is co-chairing the 2019 event. “It’s a cruising event for serious racers and the racing event for serious cruisers. There’s literally room for everybody in the regatta.” The idea for a race across the southern Bay was born more than a decade ago in a conversation between friends. “I was new to racing, and I was dissatisfied with the length of the races and wanted more opportunities,” said Bill Barnes, one of the Cup’s co-founders and a

longtime participant in the regatta. “A few of my close friends who were veteran sailors—Leo Wardrup and Sonny Smith—gave us the idea of a two-day race to Cape Charles and back.” Wardrup, a retired Navy captain and longtime Virginia House delegate, agreed to raise funds for the new regatta if Barnes organized the event. With the help of Lou Tuttobene, John McCarthy, and Scott Almond, the duo drew more than a dozen sailboats the inaugural year, and the Cape Charles Cup was born. The casual competition quickly grew into one of Broad Bay Sailing Association’s most popular events, according to Scott Almond, a lead racing official for the event. He watched the Cape Charles Cup draw more than 70 cruisers and racers by the third annual event. “I would attribute it to Bill and Leo’s event philosophy,” Almond said. The two-day race was “unlike any

other event in our area,” providing a weekend-long slate of sailing and social events that quickly became the talk of crews in the southern Chesapeake Bay. “It helped that Leo and Bill had found a decent amount of sponsors, because the race was well-funded, the trophies were nice and the parties were great.” After Wardrup passed away in 2014, organizers renamed the race in his memory. His 38-foot schooner, the Black Widow, still races in the Cup each year. “It wouldn’t have happened without Leo,” Barnes said. “Leo Wardrup was the force behind the event,” said Hank Giffin, former race chair and still an organizer behind the event. Fundraising allows the organizers to keep entry fees low—$115 ($165, if received after July16). The fee gains

participants a package including a regatta T-shirt, hat, and other gifts, as well as meals and drinks, starting with Friday night’s dinner in Norfolk and including four tickets to the renowned dinner and after party Saturday night in Cape Charles. Every skipper gets a copy of the regatta yearbook, which features the participating boats and skippers. “All told, the package is worth between $350 and $400,” Giffin said. “We consider it the best bargain in the Bay. We raise money in order to keep the race entry fees low and keep the things that really keep the race fun.” Even so, the regatta’s growing popularity has allowed sponsorship dollars to surpass the cost of hosting the event, leading to a partnership with Sail Nauticus. The Norfolk-based non-profit sends youth on the water to learn about science and develop life

skills from swimming and first aid to teamwork, leadership and communication through sailing. “Leo developed that relationship back in 2012. We all knew at that point that Sail Nauticus was a good program that helped kids get involved sailing,” Almond said. “That was where we wanted to be—helping programs that educated kids through sailing.” “They do an amazing community outreach and we believe that you can learn things on the water that you couldn’t learn anywhere else,” Ritger said. As Barnes sees it, Sail Nauticus can bring new life into local sailing, too. “We need young people coming in, and hopefully some young people in Norfolk will have the sailing experience and be interested in moving up into bigger boats,” he said.

Crowds will gather in the hundreds for the 2019 Cape Charles Cup, kicking off Friday night, August 9, with a skipper’s meeting complete with dinner, drinks, and music at Bay Point Marina in Norfolk. On Saturday, rolling starts of various classes launch from Norfolk’s Little Creek Marina and crews race roughly 16 miles across the

Chesapeake Bay to Cape Charles. The slower boats start first to allow the fleet to sail in similar conditions and arrive together for the party. The winners of the classes are determined by handicapped corrected time to make the racing as fair as possible. “It really opens up the playing field and that’s what I think is so

alluring,” Ritger said. Saturday night, an awards ceremony and after party takes place on the C-Pier at the Oyster Farm Marina, in Cape Charles, where crews are greeted with cold drinks, buffet dinner, and live music. Top competitors in each class take home a one-foot-tall crystal sailboat by Virginia Beach’s own Glass Baron Art mounted on a varnished wooden base, “The most beautiful piece of crystal you’ve ever wanted,” Giffin said. Crews launch from Cape Charles the following morning and race back to the western shore, marking the end of the Cup, and the start of planning for next year’s event. “It’s a year-round process. It doesn’t stop. Once the race is over, you start planning for the next year,” Barnes said. From ordering trophies to coordinating with the U.S. Coast Guard, the Cape Charles Cup “takes a lot of effort to coordinate,” Giffin said—but the event is worth organizers’ efforts. “Everybody just seems to get along [in] the different generations.

Making a Skipjack Nathan of Dorchester celebrates 25 years of Chesapeake Bay heritage by Charles Rouse

round 1870, Meyer Nathan, a tinkerer, arrived in Cambridge, Maryland. He probably never set foot on a skipjack; yet he and his son, Milford, would, over a century later, have a profound influence on preserving the heritage of Maryland’s skipjacks and his hometown. Nathan eventually set up a furniture store and built it out to become one of the largest on the Eastern Shore. He bequeathed the business to Milford in 1911, who expanded the business to include nine locations on the Delmarva peninsula. Milford was also a pillar of Eastern Shore civic society as a Mason, the chairman of the Cambridge Hospital board of directors and the Farmers & Merchants National Bank. In his will, he provided for the establishment of the permanently funded Nathan Foundation, which would become Dorchester County’s largest charitable organization, and it would benefit various causes including the building of Nathan of Dorchester, the last “dredge boat” skipjack to be built on the Bay. The idea came in 1991 with the “Committee of 100” formed by citizens intent on promoting Cambridge as a destination. The goals were to establish the Richardson Maritime Museum, build a Choptank River Lighthouse replica at Longwood Park, establish a visitor’s center at Sailwinds Park, and acquire or build a skipjack to preserve the Chesapeake sailing oyster dredge tradition. A Dorchester Skipjack Committee convened to take on the project and enlisted the

ChesapeakeBayMagazine.com

July/August 2019

help of Harold Ruark, an experienced local boat- and model-builder. Without a suitable skipjack to buy and restore, the committee decided to build one. Ruark was well-prepared to design the boat and oversee the process. His nephew Bobby, also a master builder, would manage the project. It had been nearly 40 years since anyone had built a skipjack. She would be the only one ever built from a formal set of plans. The Nathan Foundation stepped up to provide the seed money to sustain the project, with the stipulation that “Nathan” must be in the boat’s name. On June 4, 1992, the boatbuilding crew laid the keelson, which was carved from a donated, 143-year-old loblolly pine (Spicer Brothers Lumber Company), and everyone joined in an invocation and a blessing. Thus it began, and after 14,000 volunteer hours spread over three years, she was ready to sail. Donated space, material and services came from all over. The local


taxi service took volunteers to and from the site. Generation III, the local boatyard, donated space. Townspeople brought boxed lunches and baked goods to keep the crew going. Cummings of the Chesapeake, Inc. donated the main engine. Mercury Marine/MerCruiser provided the engine for the push-boat. Mid-Shore Electronics pitched in navigation instruments. North Sails Chesapeake built the roughly 1,400 square-feet of sails, and various unique steering, rigging and hardware came from derelict skipjacks around the watershed. Most of the work was done with traditional hand toolsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;adzes, augers, chisels and saws. Visitors came from all over to follow the production, (including a Norwegian film crew) and school classes came to learn. On July 4, 1994, more than 500 people came

for the christening by Nathan descendant Gladys Nathan. The Nathan is an immersive experience that draws people in and sparks a vision of what life can be like when people and nature blend, and excursions are full almost every time she leaves the dock. She has also served as a traveling ambassador visiting cities up and down the Chesapeake Bay. For many, seeing the boat at Long Wharf or sailing on her brings back memories of fathers, grand-fathers, and great grand-fathers who sailed and worked on skipjacks back in the days. The Nathan keeps those memories alive for the next generation. The spirit of the Nathan of Dorchester may be best summarized in a poem, written by two young boys after a summer sail in 2000:

No matter what tack, on that lovely skipjack; She sailed on the breeze with the greatest of ease. The red-shirted crew, how to sail, they knew; From hoisting the sails to filling the pails. Thanks for the ride, on that boat so wide, We had a good time on her, the Nathan of Dorchester. h

Carl Brady, Heirloom Farmer

Family Heirlooms The Chesapeake secret to better tomatoes is old as dirt. by Allison Blake

COURTESY PHOTO

f the Chesapeake’s 11,684 miles of shoreline, the Patuxent River’s Honey Branch gets no glory. It should. Along its shores are rare pockets of Collington sandy loam, a well-drained soil that grows tomatoes you can’t live without come summer. Once prized by tobacco growers and found in parts of Anne Arundel and Prince George’s Counties, Collington is good for growing all kinds of vegetables. But especially tomatoes. It also “grows very good houses,” as Prince George’s Soil Conservation District Executive Director Steve Darcey says. Development leaves few farmers still tilling this particular soil. ChesapeakeBayMagazine.com

July/August 2019

Farmer Carl Brady is a hold out, the last guy growing and selling his heirloom vegetables along a welltraveled commuter stretch of Central Avenue west of Davidsonville. Softspoken with a deep sense of local history, Brady hails from a long line of local farmers. In 1982, when he bought 26.5 acres and named it Queen Anne Farm for a colonial era port that used to stand nearby, he knew what was under his feet. “Anyone who grew up around here knows about Collington loam. It naturally contains one- to three- percent organic matter,” says Brady. “Most soils don’t have that much organic matter. It’s sandy, for draining. It always stays loose and friable so the roots can develop.” Cherokees, Hillbillies, Brandywine, Early Girls—Brady grows them all. Back in early April, heirloom tomato varieties, Celebrities, Fourth of July, and sweet, little Sun Sugars, had sprouted and were headed for the greenhouse. By late June or early July, they will start to pile up on the shelves of the boutique farmstand Brady and his wife, Carole, operate near the Patuxent River in Prince George’s County. The farmstand is the product of meticulous care—a model of DIY before anyone thought that was anything but the norm. Carl built the structure 30 years ago from oak trees felled by a hurricane. A wagon bed acquired from a neighbor holds much of the produce. Above it hangs a hand-hewn yellowpine shelf, salvaged from a tree that came down in a storm, and above that hang the wheels from Carl’s father’s hay rake. “What Carl and I try to do is keep things as natural as possible,” says Carole. “We try to include Marylandmade products and keep it local— cheese, jellies, honeys. We pick in the morning to sell that day,” she says. Carl grew up on his mother’s 70-acre family farm in central Prince George’s County (his paternal family’s

30 acres were across the street) and started growing his own corn before he graduated from high school. Over the years, drought and debt taught him to diversify his crop. So, you’re also likely to find a zucchini varietal ordered by seed from Italy; cucumbers for slicing and pickling; various exotic squashes; and, in fall, turnips, kale, collards and mustard greens alongside the farm’s popular pumpkin patch. But it’s the 10 varieties of tomatoes that have customers stopping by on hot days to pick the perfect tomato for the day’s perfect tomato sandwich. “I know what a good tomato is so, naturally, I wanted the customer to have that experience,” says Carl. “When I started my little stand, there were five others on Central Avenue. I always stick with the old varieties, like Rutgers and the Marglobe, but I’ve gone more to the heirlooms. They don’t have a lot of shelf life, but they have a lot of flavor.” Which begs the question: which variety do these experts prefer? “My favorite is Brandywine,” says Carole. “Rutgers. Or Marglobes,” says Carl. “Old varieties of tomatoes.” And their tomato sandwiches? With Hellman’s mayo. “That’s the one for me,” says Carole. “If you really want to do it right, make them on white bread.”

Her husband agrees. “You don’t want anything detracting from the flavor, and white bread is inert.” Collington was a settlement in the area going back to colonial times. Its apparent namesake soil is also found in parts of Calvert County and, it seems, areas of New Jersey. Up until recent decades, tobacco was an abundant crop in Southern Maryland. As it turns out, tomatoes and tobacco are both members of the plant family Solanaceae, and the region’s soils have unique characteristics that favor those plants. “I’m not saying our soils grow a better tomato than, say, soils on the Eastern Shore,’’ said Anne Arundel County Extension Agent Dave Myers. “But they do contain glauconitic sand, a mineral naturally high in potassium. You need to have a good potassium content and the best growers are kind of artists at getting the soil’s potassium and nitrogen balance right. “Historically, maybe that kind of gives some of our growers an edge,” he said. “There are other good soils around the state, but I’ll admit, I’m partial to Southern Maryland tomatoes.”

Good Neighbors A solid oyster reef takes teamwork. by John Page Williams

esterday evening, I snuck into an event hosted by the Chesapeake Oyster Alliance and cheerfully tasted a range of freshly-shucked aquaculture oysters from different sections of the Bay. They were beautifully shaped, with clean, deeply cupped shells, just right for a high-class raw bar. The shape and the unadorned surfaces of the shells came from time in an oyster tumbler, a device that oyster farmers use to chip away the edges and encourage them to grow into the ideal

half-shell presentation shape. The burgeoning Chesapeake Bay aquaculture industry and our resurgent love of oysters are reasons to celebrate. The Chesapeake Oyster Alliance works collaboratively with other organizations and citizens to accelerate Chesapeake Bay oyster restoration efforts, which provide essential water filtration and fish/crab habitat ecosystem services.

develop to take advantage of niches in the ecosystem they inhabit. Look at how trees and shrubs grow to compete for sunlight with the other plants around them. Some grow tall to form a canopy, while shrubs and grasses bend to catch patches of sunlight that shine through the shade. Marsh grasses balance their needs for sunlight with their tolerance for water around their roots. Various species fit together in a community based on the elevations of their root systems. Differences of less than an inch in soil height can determine which one has the advantage at each level. As summer comes to the Chesapeake, the members of these plant communities grow according to their capabilities and requirements for sunlight and the chemical building blocks in the soil. These processes have developed over millennia to form intricate webs of life that fit together in ways we can hardly imagine. It’s easy to observe the process around a patch of woods or a marsh. Less obvious are the dramas playing out in the open waters of the Chesapeake, its rivers, and its creeks. Bay restoration scientists speak of rebuilding foundation species such our eastern oyster. But that iconic bivalve is not alone. In fact, reef restoration is a much larger enterprise than just growing oysters. The aim of these projects is to create underwater structures where diverse arrays of opportunism can fit together and flourish. For example, the NOAA standard for planting restoration reefs is five million spat-on-shell per acre, with the objective of having 15 to 50 of those baby oysters survive to maturity per square meter. A waterway like Maryland’s Harris Creek or Virginia’s Lafayette River (both now declared fully restored by NOAA standards) have lots of square meters of reef


surface built of combinations of shell, stone, and concrete overlaid by spat set-on-shell. But the aim for the ecological community isn’t just millions of oysters. It’s a biologically diverse community of tens of millions of opportunistic critters that can take advantage of what the surrounding waters bring them in ways where they complement one another. Sound complicated and abstract? Well, yes to the former, but no to the latter. Complexity increases the chance that there’s a species to fit every niche. But the next question becomes as concrete as “who eats what.” Here is where a restored reef begins to earn its keep. Most Chesapeake waters offer too much of one class of food— phytoplankton, which are microscopic algae that drift and grow on sunlight energy and the

nitrogen and phosphorus fed to them by stormwater and air pollution. Our waters need grazers such as oysters to consume those algae cells. For several millennia, the trillions of critters on our oyster reefs occupied those niches, but over the past century-anda-half, the grazing communities declined even as we destroyed our reefs. The problem became especially acute because we were fertilizing more and more algae growth as the grazers declined. Hence the push for reef restoration today, which has produced success stories like Harris Creek and the Lafayette River, with at least eight others slated for restoration in the immediate future. We have learned that investing in three-dimensional reefs really works. More and more people becoming fascinated by oysters are participating in reef

projects in their home waters. But reef restoration is expensive enough that, in addition to monitoring its effectiveness, the Chesapeake’s scientific community is studying ways to do it most efficiently. That process is focusing on several unassuming reef critters: hooked mussels and sea squirts, which are the messy brown shellfish and “sea grapes” that crowd oyster shells. Just like the oysters, they are grazing on the phytoplankton that washes over them. Over the past six years, a crossdisciplinary team of scientists from the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, the University of Maryland, and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science have collaborated to evaluate sea squirt and hooked mussel biomass and the rate at which they filter water. It turns out that individual mussels don’t filter as much

But the biomass of mussels on restored reefs may be greater than that of the oysters, so they may filter just as much water and graze as much phytoplankton.

he Orange Crush is synonymous with our summertime beaches. It began at the Harborside Bar & Grill in West Ocean City in 1995 when it was the local watering hole for fisherman grabbing a cold drink after a hard day on the water. My father-in-law worked on some of those boats, and he has some great stories of characters that frequented those docks. For a couple of years, the cocktail was exclusive to Harborside, but it didn’t take long before the rest of us caught on. These days, you can find them on the cocktail cards in pretty much any place you go to in the Mid-Atlantic. I’ve seen them as far north as New Jersey, and as far south as the Carolinas. Freshly squeezed juice is the key to any Crush that’s worth its weight. While most of us have a carton of OJ in the fridge, this isn’t the place for it. They are traditionally made with an orange press, which adds a certain something, squeezing out more of the essential oils from the peel, I suppose. Nevertheless, a regular old citrus reamer or juicer is just dandy if you don’t have a citrus press at hand. The other two essential components are vodka and triple sec, and from there, the possibilities are endless. I love using what’s in season to add a spin to the standard variations—strawberry, watermelon, cantaloupe, coconut—you name it and you can probably crush it. While this cocktail is my summertime go-to, it’s also wonderful during those cold winter months when you want a taste of summer. Lemons, limes, and grapefruits are at their peak in January, and those old standbys get me through until summer is knocking on our doors again. So, without further ado, here are a few of my favorites. Cheers to the Chesapeake!

GRAPEFRUIT CRUSH I’d say grapefruit is my favorite crush variety. It’s a little less sweet than its orange counterpart, making it hard to drink just one. I like adding sparkling water instead of soda to help reduce the sweet factor even further. 1 1/2 grapefruits, juiced 1.5 oz vodka 1 oz triple sec splash of grapefruit sparkling water ice Pour all ingredients into cocktail mixer and shake. Strain into a cocktail glass filled with ice. Garnish with grapefruit peel or slice.

BLACKBERRY CRUSH Blackberry and fresh lime sing together in perfect harmony. These bodacious black berries are their best when picked up from your local farmers market or roadside stand. I’ve even come across them growing wild on our neighboring barrier island of Assateague. This recipe is equally good using fresh raspberries.

riven hard and put away wet”: That’s a close description of the treatment given to the skiffs the baymen of Long Island’s South Shore use to harvest clams with Steiger 28 Miami bullrakes. Most go to their slips carrying plenty of mud LOA: 28' as well. Alan Steiger was Beam: 10' one of those bullrakers in Draft: 25" (engine up) the 1960s, but he also had Transom Deadrise: 22° woodworking skills, so he Weight: 8,400 lbs. built his own skiff and Max HP: 600 repaired others for his Fuel Capacity: 200 gal friends. One thing led to Available through another, and he began Annapolis Yacht Sales— building skiffs from scratch. Annapolisyachtsales.com He made the transition to fiberglass in the 1970s with a tough, fast, able, and pretty 21-footer that ran on a semi-V, 14-degree deadrise hull with a sharp

forefoot. It quickly gained a good reputation. Inevitably, recreational anglers began visiting his shop and asking for it. More things led to others, and today the Steiger Craft line offers open and pilothouse boats from 21- to 31-feet. True to their roots, they are tough, fast, able, and pretty, but most now run on 22-degree deep-V bottoms for offshore use, with four-stroke outboards from Suzuki and Yamaha mounted on transom brackets. Many of the boats still work in commercial roles, including charter fishing and law enforcement. Make no mistake, though: these are not semi-displacement workboat hulls. They are built to run hard in calm waters and sloppy seas. A case in point is the 28-foot Miami pilothouse model, which we had an opportunity to sea-trial around the Bay Bridges with Annapolis Yacht Sales staff on a day when a northerly wind in the ’teens built short


three-foot seas against a full-moon flood tide. At 8,400 pounds dry with twin engines, the 28 is a heavy boat built of hand-laid, solid fiberglass around an I-beam stringer grid. It carries a limited lifetime hull warranty. Nothing shook or rattled as we ran into the seas. The pilothouse has an upholstered portside couch with tackle drawers and general storage under and wellplaced overhead grab rails. The deck is rigid, so we recommend deck shoes with wellcushioned insoles. Our boat had a pair of 300-hp Suzukis, which could drive her to a top speed of nearly 50 knots. That wasn’t realistic on such a blustery day, but speeds in the mid-20s were, with the engines trimmed in a bit and trim tabs down just enough to attack the seas with the hull’s sharp forefoot and deep-V bottom. Rain-X on the windshield made it easy to see through spray, but the boat comes with sturdy windshield wipers as well. Running with the seas, we raised the tabs, trimmed the engines out, and rode easily. We spent some time drifting and easing along at trolling speeds in several directions. The eight-foot beam provided comfortable motion at all points. This boat has bow thrusters, but we were impressed at how well the big propellers allowed us to maneuver with the throttles, both outside the harbor and backing into the slip. So, what is a strong, stable boat like Alan Steiger’s 28 Miami good for in the Chesapeake?

With her big, open cockpit, pilothouse shelter with aft curtains, and forward cabin with V-berth, head, counter, and sink; she’d make a great platform for watching sailboat races, working as a race committee utility boat, sightseeing around the Bay; and taking a crowd out to watch a sunset or Blue Angels air show. And she's very good for fishing—trolling, jigging, or drifting bait anywhere around the Bay. Her 200-gallon fuel tank and efficient engines promise enough range (over 280 nautical miles, with 10 percent in reserve) for deep-drop expeditions off Virginia Beach. Huge fish boxes, an in-sole livewell, a cockpit helm station, rod holders on the aft edge of the pilothouse, tackle drawers, toe-rails and bolsters along the cockpit washboards, under-gunwale rod racks, and Steiger’s signature sinker bins along the cockpit sole under those racks allow the 28 Miami to adapt to any style of open water fishing. The 2020 version will have an exended pilot house and larger dinette to accomodate a microwave and coffee station, and bow thrusters are now standard equipment. These are heirloom boats, built strong enough to serve generations of water-loving families or commercial operators. h

ABOVE: (L) The Steiger 28 Miami provides ample working space for fishing, crabbing, and play. (R) 22 degrees of running surface deadrise provides a comfortable ride in bumpy seas without sacrificing very much speed.

The Chesapeake Marina Equation by John Stefancik

T

he Chesapeake Bay runs roughly 200 miles from the Susquehanna River to the Virginia Capes and features more than 11,000 miles of shoreline. If you wanted to cruise to every creek, cove, and river, you would be hard pressed to visit the same place twice in a lifetime. For most of us, the access and support system for Chesapeake adventures is one of the 434 marinas that ring the Bay. Marinas are our gateways to exploration and relaxation. These marinas offer so much more than storage. Trained marina staff members make sure you are ready to go by protecting and prepping your precious vessel—maintaining your powerplant, adjusting your lines, polishing and waxing, applying bottom paint, brushing on varnish, charging your batteries, and keeping an eye on things while you plan and execute your excursions. Chesapeake marinas are as diverse as they are plentiful. They run the gamut from basic, do-it-yourself boatyards to fullservice marinas with fuel, on-site restaurants, pools, lounges, playgrounds, dock bars, chandleries, and spas. The plethora of marina options produces healthy competition that attracts expert staff and inspires efforts to be the best (Consider CBM’s annual Best of the Bay contest). The result is a wealth of choices—among the finest in the world. We are certain that the standard set by Chesapeake Bay marinas establishes a high bar for other regions with shorter seasons and fewer cruising options. Our experience proves that, here on the Bay, our boating aspirations are in good hands. h

’m not brave enough to don the leathers. Not that the offer isn’t out there. “Everybody starts this practice somewhere,” Christian Benefiel, the guest instructor leading the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s first-ever iron casting, tells the assembled guests. Behind him, a coke-fired blast furnace breathes with a malevolent rumble, while the initiated are going through the ritual of covering nearly every inch of their potentially flammable parts with leather garments, right down to the spats that cover their boots. “We want this to be an inclusive activity, so if you’re doing your first pour, we just ask that you follow someone who’s more experienced. The most important thing you can do today is ask questions.” It’s early spring, and the museum’s shipyard is humming with excitement under a bluebird sky and a crisp breeze. The night before, several dozen people had taken part in a “sip-andscratch” event, where they enjoyed some beverages and etched their own designs into 10-by-10-inch scratch blocks—which kind of look like big ash trays— all the while learning about the art of pouring iron. Designs ranged from starfish to anchors, and now those blocks are laid out side by side on long wooden planks, waiting to have molten iron poured into them. They, along with a variety of other, much larger pieces, including some

pillow blocks for the anchor windlass of the museum’s 129-year-old bugeye Edna E. Lockwood, will be forged today in a process that’s fundamentally unchanged for thousands of years, and which Shipyard Programs Manager Jenn Kuhn is thrilled to add to the museum’s expanding Apprentice for a Day (AFAD) program. “We’re so excited about this,” says Kuhn, who came to the museum in 2011 from Seattle as a shipwright apprentice. “I’ve always wanted to learn metal casting, and it just goes hand in hand with what we do here . . . we’re trying to preserve all of these crafts.” Apprentice for a Day grew from the museum’s public boatbuilding program, through which people could help the shipwrights with various projects. But it was primarily boatbuilding and restoration, and Kuhn has worked to expand the program into something much more broadly hands-on and topically diverse. These days, the program ranges from one-day demonstration events, like today’s iron pour, to three- to seven-day intensive hands-on learning sessions in specific skills from a master in the field. One-day events include marlinspike seamanship, in which participants learn sailmaking techniques and leave the class with their own hand-made ditty bag, to navigation, engine repair,

and even a class where you can bring your own small boat needing restoration and have the yard’s experts assess whether it will be a dream or a nightmare to accomplish. Workshops include blacksmithing, brightwork, and introduction to woodworking, while intensives include metal working, timber framing, and a 10-day skin-on-frame kayak building class. You can even customize a program to meet the needs of yourself or your group for a day or a week of hands-on training. Kuhn first partnered with Benefiel, a Baltimore native, in 2013, when he came to the museum as an artist-in-residence. A metal sculptor who got into the art as a teenager, Benefiel now teaches sculpture at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. The recipient of a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award— among multiple other honors—and a Fulbright grant that took him to Finland, he has conducted residencies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki and at Pirkkala Sculpture in Finland, as well as the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont. His work has been shown in galleries from North Carolina and Maryland to Estonia and Latvia. He learned about the museum through his wife, a St. Michaels native, and approached Kuhn with the idea of a residency.

“I talked to Jenn, and they hadn’t really done it before, but she said, ‘Let’s give it a try,’” Benefiel says. “She said she’d give me a bench, and I would teach them how to melt and cast bronze.” Benefiel now teaches an AFAD workshop in casting bronze and aluminum, and today’s demonstration is taking it to the next level—casting iron. It’s a more intense form of metal work, requiring higher heat, a different furnace and different techniques. Benefiel has brought his portable furnace, a hulking, rusty-looking beast that has a distinct Mad Max vibe to it, thanks to the friend who helped him design it. “He’s a real motorhead,” Benefiel says. “There’s much cleaner ways to do this, but it’s just so cool!” This furnace is a called a cupola, a style dating to the 1600s, Benefiel says, and named for its long chimney stack with a cupola on top which helps draw the poisonous gases more effectively up and out. Lined with two inches of heat-resistant refractory, rated to about 3,200 degrees Fahrenheit, it can be dismantled by section, which makes it portable. Standing on thick metal legs, it has four primary vertical sections stacked atop one another: At the base is the well where the molten iron pools before being July/August 2019

tapped; above that, the wind belt, which is basically a complex bellows comprised of multiple wrapped and curved pipes (hence, the Mad Max look), some of which end with cap nuts that are removed periodically to poke the fire with lengths of rebar, as well as to attach blowers to pump air into the furnace; the melt zone where the serious combustion takes place (more on that in a moment), and at the top, the chimney. The whole thing stands about 12 feet tall. Next to it is a metal table stacked with drywall buckets, each containing a “charge” of six pounds of foundry coke— blocks about the size of a big fist, nearly pure carbon that burns clean at high temperatures—and 35 pounds of iron; mostly broken up old radiators, bathtubs, and the like. Today, 600 pounds of iron will go into the furnace in these individual charges, and it will melt amid the burning coke, flow into the well, and come out 75 to 80 pounds at a time—about every 10 to 15 minutes—as a boiling-hot, fluorescent, orange liquid. Furnaces, Benefiel explains, each have their own character and idiosyncrasies, and there’s a certain amount of superstition about them. I begin to understand why as I watch Benefiel and several others—some with the museum, others metal artists and former students of Benefiel who are casting ChesapeakeBayMagazine.com

art pieces today—slowly bring the furnace to life, a process that takes several hours and has the same kind of excited, jovial teamwork as a barn-raising. “Iron is more of a community activity; you really can’t do it alone,” Benefiel says. “This iron community is a collection of loveable maniacs. Well, maybe not loveable, but maniacs!” “We have iron coursing through our veins, every one of us,” says Lauren Koch, who’s in the University of Maryland’s three-year, studio art master of fine arts

program . Today, she’s casting a piece for her mid-program project, called “Residium.” To get things rolling, Benefiel starts with a wood fire, some blocks of coke and a few spritzes of lighter fluid. Adding a blower to the windbelt gets the fire hotter, and then Benefiel tosses chunks of coke down the top of the stack. By the time he starts adding charges— standing on the table and pouring the contents of the buckets straight down the chimney—the others have spread sand all around the work area, laid out the

molds in pour lines, and begun to don the leather, face shields, and other gear that will protect them from the fire, heat, and molten metal. There’s a certain ritualistic feel to the whole exercise, not least because of the nature of the beast. At 2,600 degrees, the iron starts to melt. 2,800 degrees is when you pour. And through it all, the furnace gains heat, momentum, and a kind of barely contained power that’s absolutely mesmerizing. By the time the pouring starts, the furnace is a living, roaring

god which demands its supplicants’ full attentiveness and care. At least two people are at all times tending to it, unscrewing cap nuts on the wind belt to poke and stir the fire, or poking and clearing the slag hole at the top of the well. As the well fills with molten iron, the iron initially dribbles out of the slag hole and indicates, depending on its consistency, when it’s ready to pour from the tap near the well’s base on the opposite side. Sparks and the occasional chunk of debris

fly out of the slag hole, and from 30 feet away, the heat is palpable. What had been smoke coming out the chimney is now pure, shimmering heat. As the first pour nears, Benefiel gathers everyone around and goes over who will do what. The pour team is in charge of handling the refractory bucket, catching the iron from the tap and then moving to the pour line and pouring the molten metal into the various molds. Others are charged with the simultaneous opening of the tap, which is plugged with a wad of sand and refractory material called a bod, and closing off the slag hole—a process that’s reversed as soon as the pour is completed. The skimmer skims slag and impurities off the surface of the molten iron just after it goes into the vessel, and then, during pouring. The choreography is precise and careful. At about 1:30—some two hours after Benefiel started the fire—Matt Engel, lead educator at the museum, who had spent hours preparing the sand mold for the Edna Lockwood’s pillow bearings, shouts as what had been a sticky sludge of molten metal at the slag hole suddenly starts running as thin and liquid as water. “Ok, let’s open it!” Benefiel says, and the team moves quickly into position. Using a thick iron bar, Benefiel stabs away the bod that has sealed the tap. Suddenly it bursts open, and a startling stream of brilliant

orange liquid gushes wildly from the tap into the bucket. As soon as the bucket is full enough, he plugs the tap with another bod as the pour team—led by Kuhn at the “live end” of the bar holding the bucket—moves carefully to the row of molds and starts pouring. This process repeats about every 10 minutes, about eight times. Between pours, they switch roles so that everyone gets experience at each job, discussing the choreography of the pour each time. Every now and then something will catch fire—a wooden edge of a mold, the top of someone’s leather-covered boot—and it’s quickly and nonchalantly doused with sand. After the final pour, they disconnect the blower on the wind belt, open all of the cap nuts on the pipes, and then pop the bottom of the

well open. The last of the red-hot coke drops to the sand below, a volcanic pile until someone sprays it down with water. And just like that, the beast is quieted, still shimmering hot, but withdrawing into somnolence again. Tomorrow, Kuhn, Benefiel, and the others will return to open the molds and see how they did. “It’s kind of like Christmas,” Kuhn says, “you don’t know what you’ve got till you open it.”h

Amazing GRACE by larry chowning

S

herman Holmes Jr. and his younger brother, Wendell, grew up at Christchurch in Middlesex County, Virginia, attended the all-black St. Clare Walker High School in the late ‘50s and ‘60s, and were stars in the Wolverine school bands. They went on to become a groundbreaking national and international musical group featuring a blend of blues, soul, gospel, country and rhythm and blues. In 1979, after decades of singing and playing across the country, the brothers joined with Popsy Dixon to become the Holmes Brothers band. They signed record contracts in 1989 with Rounder Records and in 2001 with Alligator Records. The Chicago Tribune called their Alligator album Speaking in Tongues a “joyous, foot-stomping carnival . . . a gift to the world of music.” They performed in 58 countries, sang for President Clinton, appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman (with Joan Osbourne backing up), and numerous other shows. They won the 2005 W.C. Handy Band of the Year award, and the Soul Blues Album of the Year award in 2008. In 2014, they received the National Heritage Award, which honors those who preserve America’s historical character, and they also won an Achievement in Living Traditions and Arts award from the Maryland State Arts Council.

Sherman and Wendell are the sons of school teachers, Easter and Sherman Holmes Sr.. The boys grew up singing in the Calvary Baptist Church choir and started their musical life by taking piano and organ lessons. Wendell got his first paying job at the age of 11, earning six dollars a Sunday playing organ for the Grafton Baptist Church in Hartfield. When the brothers were 13 and 10 years old, they formed a neighborhood band and started playing at Herman Wake’s juke joint at Cooks Corner. Wake was Easter Holmes’ first cousin. “We didn’t sound like much, but we could make some noise, and whenever a band did not show up Herman would call us up,” said Sherman. “We used to say we’d rock ‘em on Saturday night at Herman’s and save ’em on Sunday morning at church.” “Daddy liked it when we played at Herman’s, but mother didn’t. Throughout our careers she referred to our lifestyle as the ‘sporting life’ and did not accept it until we performed in front of President Bill Clinton. Then she thought it was all right,” said Sherman. When the boys became part of the St. Clare Walker band, Sherman took up the clarinet and excelled. He graduated from St. Clare Walker in 1957 and entered Virginia State University. Wendell continued in high school playing the trumpet and guitar and played with a band that regularly performed at The Tides Inn in Irvington. “They played for tips and, many a night, Wendell came home with fifty dollars in his pocket, and that was good money then,” said Sherman. Sherman studied composition and music theory at Virginia State and played the clarinet in the college band. Lloyd Price, who had the million-selling hit Personality, came to the school and talked Sherman into a summer musical stint in New Orleans. “He was driving a brand-new Lincoln Continental, and it seemed like a good opportunity,” said Sherman. That summer, Sherman got to experience the New Orleans music scene but had to call home for financial help to get through the summer when Price neglected to pay him his $28.50 for a night’s work and left him in New Orleans. When the money came from his mother, Sherman caught a Greyhound bus and rode home on the back seat through the segregated South. When he got back to Virginia State, he decided to take the second semester off. In 1959, he and another student went to New York to play in a band with singer Jimmy Jones who, in 1955, had the hit song Handy Man. Sherman had taken up the bass guitar while at Virginia State, which proved to be a real asset. “I never saw a clarinet in any of the bands in New York,” he said. “After that, I was a bass guitar player for life. “With Jimmy Jones I was making $50 a day and that was when minimum wage was $1.10 an hour. I could work 40 hours a week at a regular job and not make $50,” he said.

Sherman went all over the country with Jones, and, after Wendell’s graduation from St. Clare Walker High School in 1961, the two of them left together that summer for New York and a lifetime of music. “We both loved the business, but Wendell really loved it because, in part, he never liked working for anyone else,” said Sherman of his late brother. “Wendell’s first job was helping a white lady around her yard. He went one time and never went back, and, as far as I know, he never worked a steady job in his life. Music was his life.” At the start of their careers, the brothers joined several bands, but in 1963, Sherman formed The Sevilles. The group lasted six years and the Holmes brothers gained lasting experience by backing up such performers as The Impressions, The Drifters, John Lee Hooker, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis and Jerry Butler. After the Sevilles, the brothers performed regularly with other bands on the Chitlin’ Circuit at blues clubs like the Apollo Theater in New York, Howard Theatre in Washington D. C., and juke joints up and down the South. They formed working relationships with some of the top blues/folk artists in the country. The brothers regularly played in bars and night clubs in Greenwich Village. Through the 1960s and 70s, they traveled around the country playing their music. “We tried it all. I even bought myself a white cowboy hat and was singing country music,” said Sherman. “At that time, I was the only black country-western singer around.” From time to time, they went their separate ways with Wendell making his living exclusively with his

music. During the 1970s, the disco sound took singing gigs away from blues and soul singers. “We didn’t play disco,” said Sherman. When times were tight, Sherman found full-time work. “I eventually got a day job in Westchester, New York, making light fixtures by day and working clubs with my music at night. Wendell moved to New Jersey and was working the bars and nightclubs in that area.” In 1967, Wendell started playing with Willie “Popsy” Dixon, a drummer and singer. Along with Sherman, they started performing with a succession of Top 40 bar bands. They worked bars into the late 1970s when the brothers and Dixon were about to give it all up. Instead they decided to leave the bands and try it as a trio. “We decided we would go trio, and when we were considering a name for our group, our agent said, ‘why don’t you use your own name . . . Holmes Brothers.’” In 1979, the Holmes Brothers hit the stage and never looked back. “I was 50 years old when we recorded our first album,” said Sherman. “The business was hard on a family, and a lot of musicians did not look after their families. Wendell and I always found a way to provide for our families. “We played all over the world. We spent six weeks in West Africa on a Goodwill Ambassador Program sponsored by President George H.W. Bush. We made music in 58 countries. When we played for President Bill Clinton and later Vice President Al Gore, we were assigned secret service people, and they even went into the bathroom with us,” said Sherman with a laugh. “It was not always an easy life

bumping around from gig to gig,” said Sherman. “But we always approached it as we were professional performers and we felt that our music was a gift. “Wendell and I saw it as what we were supposed to be doing in life. I always had an imagination, maybe because I’m left-handed and stuttered when I was young. I found some aspects of day-to-day life to be difficult, but when I started playing my music— and that is to this day— everything seemed normal. I never saw any reason to stop.” “We played every kind of music, and because of that, there were people in the business who referred to us as music prostitutes,” he said. “We just loved all kinds of music and the greatest thing about music is how it pulls people together. “You can say what you want about hippies and rock & roll, but that was the era and sound that changed our lives forever,” he said. “That’s when we saw whites and blacks coming together for the first time to listen to the same sounds, and no longer were our gigs for all black audiences.” The three people and sounds that have made the most impact on Sherman are an interesting mix. When asked who they were he said without hesitation, John Mingo Banks, Little Willie John and composer Samuel Barber. Banks was a tenor singing in the Calvary Baptist Church choir when Sherman was a child. Between 1890 and 1900, Banks formed a quartet and traveled extensively in the North performing, and he achieved the distinction of traveling to England to perform for Queen Victoria. “He had a voice from God, and I listened to it every Sunday,” said Sherman.

Little Willie John was an American rock and roll singer who had hits Fever (1956); Need Your Love So Bad (1956); and All Around the World (1955). “I never met him, but that cat could sing,” said Sherman. Samuel Barber composed Adagio for Strings (1936), the composition Sherman says he wants to be played at his funeral. “It is a masterpiece and has been my favorite piece of music for most of my life.” His favorite gig was when the group played in Los Angeles at Willie Nelson’s birthday party. “We were playing in Europe when we got the call that Willie wanted us to play at his birthday,” said Sherman. “Willie flew us first class from Europe to Los Angeles to make his party. We had recorded one of his songs and he liked what we did so he invited us.” There

were numerous groups and singers at the event. “Bob Dylan, Jerry Lee Lewis and Keith Richards were there,” said Sherman. “Each group or performer had their own limousine to ride in. It was first class. Man did we have a good time, but we had to pick up the plane tickets home, so don’t you know we rode home regular class,” said Sherman with a laugh. Wendell and Popsey died in 2015. “Popsy wasn’t my real brother, but he was my brother,” said Sherman, becoming quiet with emotion. “Lord, I miss those two.” Sherman lives in Christchurch, across the street from Calvary Baptist Church where his joy of music started. He continues the group’s legacy performing around the country as the Sherman Holmes Project. He often plays and sings Amazing Grace as a

tribute to the Wendell and Popsy and his own spiritual and music heritage. Under the direction of Jon Lohman, Virginia State Folklorist and Director of the Virginia Folklife Program, Sherman and the group The Legendary Ingramettes performed a 10-day good-will tour in May in Serbia and Bulgaria. “I will never stop performing,” said Sherman. “It’s the greatest profession in the world. It is the only profession where people applaud when you come on stage and applaud when you go off. You can’t beat that!”  A longtime Chesapeake Bay writer from Urbanna, Va., Larry Chowning has authored nine books, including Deadrise and Cross-planked and Chesapeake Buyboats, definitive histories of traditional Chesapeake Bay vessels.

eing a Baltimore boy and a sea-kayaker, I’ve grown accustomed to navigating hazards that lurk just beneath the surface of the Patapsco River’s postindustrial coastline. Sweet spots can be found, often where bulkheads of abandoned maritime infrastructure create protected, quiet waters, but getting to them sometimes involves avoiding barely-submerged rebar or other pointy hunks of hull-battering metal. The trick: go slowly and wear polarized shades. The resulting scrapes and gouges notched on my kayaks have been few, with no impalements, wet exits, or watery-rescue stories, and the payoffs have been memorable. The windy winter days I paddled around in Curtis Bay in the 90s were the stuff of meditation, nosing my

craft into placid micro-climates afforded by the open remains of wooden ships, still-standing reminders of bygone human toils, where birds rested and nested in the oases of shrubby marshland inside. But, time, tide, and waterfront development have reduced opportunities for such outings. Not so in Mallows Bay, where the Potomac’s celebrated ghost fleet is sunk into the muck of the riverbottom, a little downriver and across wide tidal waters from Quantico, Virginia. As an eco-historical paddling destination, Mallows Bay has the Patapsco River’s urban shores beat by far. Unlike the Patapsco, where working vessels and other larger craft at times regard kayaks as nuisances, and even gaining access to the water can prove hazardous, Mallows Bay is set up for paddlers. While its


designation as a national marine sanctuary, proposed in 2015, is pending, Charles County, with broad support from institutions interested in preserving nature and historical sites, has set the place up very nicely for paddling. Mallows Bay is one of many sites in the world where retired merchant and naval fleets have ceded their utility to more modern vessels and had their still-valuable parts stripped, are put out of use. These ghosts add useful ecological structure to the local habitat, drawing all kinds of shelter-seeking flora and fauna. When their final resting place is in the shallows, they fall to pieces in place over time, with loose parts ending up ashore to add to the riverbank’s nearby rack-line of tree trunks and other beached flotsam and jetsam. What remains with the

mother ships eventually becomes a jumble of partially submerged ribs and planks—a terrarium in situ. Shafts of rusty metal abound in Mallows Bay’s water column, as exposed or submerged as the river’s level dictates at any given hour. They serve as perches for birds where they protrude. So many ship remains have congregated here that dodging immobile metal is a paddler’s regular preoccupation. The deterioration of many of the skeletal, vegetated vessels has advanced nearly past the point of recognition; they look more like estuarine knolls than derelict structures, until one gets close enough to notice the metal parts embedded in the substrate. The hazards are clearly spelled out in A Paddler’s Guide to Mallows Bay, the pamphlet available at the

July/August 2019

launch site. “BEWARE OF HIDDEN WRECKS. It is dangerous to travel through the central shipwreck cluster,” the pamphlet explains, “especially during high tide when ship remains lie just below the waterline and are invisible to the paddler.” More sage advice: “Not recommended for inflatable kayaks or stand up paddleboards.” This slightly fraught aspect of paddling Mallows Bay forces a go-slow approach, good for letting the mind soak up the site’s historical and ecological assets. It’s simple enough for a savvy, weather-wise paddler to avoid hull damage in a low-draft, super-maneuverable kayak, and other worthy preoccupations abound. Try to silently approach the surrounding bird life perched atop spikes or inside shrubs to get a good snapshot. Visually comb the rack line for items of interest and look up to the top of riverside trees to check for eagle and osprey, or gaze ahead at the scattered canopies reaching across downed trunks into the river from the actively eroding bluffs behind them. A high-quality kayak launch pier and the aforementioned pamphlet, which doubles as a self-guided tour map, make paddling Mallows Bay a cinch. If you lack a kayak, or want company, the county parks department

92 ChesapeakeBayMagazine.com

July/August 2019

offers an outfitted, guided tour on Sundays, May through October, for a fee, and local outfitters are also available. The facility, near the tiny town of Nanjemoy, is used as a put-in point for trailered boats, and it’s also a draw for shoreline anglers, but its paddler-friendliness is unimpeachable. My visits to Mallows Bay bracketed this past winter. The first time, in November, I did nearly everything wrong. I saw that there was a self-guided tour map available next to the kayak pier, but forgot to even look at it, much less bring it with me on my outing. Instead, I did what I always do when I arrive to embark—unload my kayak and gear from the truck, park it, don my neoprene skirt and personal floatation device, grab my wooden Greenland paddle, tap my phone for the GPS, and get right into the water. My first move was to head straight to the most obvious ship out there, which I later learned is the Accomac, a steel-hulled ferry abandoned here in 1973. It was the only thing I did that followed the pamphlet’s recommended tour path. I went astern of it to get a close look and surmised its use by a generation or two of disaffected youth and weekend warriors.

mallows shallows Then I pointed my bow for the nearby Benzonia, a 1919 product of a Columbia River, Washington shipyard. I soon realized I was in treacherous waters with seemingly random submerged and other hazards. I slowed to a drift, occasionally dipping my paddle to make directional adjustments, and started a staring contest with the gathered gulls and cormorants that stood sentry on the spikes and other structures. They eventually flew off. I managed not to knock into anything. In the mid-November chill, I wanted to open up a bit and get the heart rate going. I headed for open water, free to speed in my favorite kayak, a 1998 Dagger Meridian with a Kevlar hull, which I’d just spent good money to have refurbished with new gelcoat. As I played in the river’s main stem, I gazed at my GPS and thought of the possibilities: Mallows Bay could be a great put-in spot for more ambitious paddling outings, up or down the river. Given the river’s width here, the fetch on windy days could make for exciting, bow-plunging challenges. I headed back toward Liverpool Point, Mallows Bay’s downstream boundary, and decided to return another day with a more impact-forgiving kayak, like my polyethylene-hulled Necky Looksha Sport, before trying to navigate the graveyard any further. To cap off my first visit, I headed into what is essentially Mallows Creek’s tiny delta, dubbed the Burning Basin on the map. After gaining the 48-foot-wide gateway, I found a few wrecks amid the marsh-tinged waters. Bethlehem Steel once used the site for salvaging metal from the ships, but today nature wins out. A few anglers were trying their luck, perhaps hoping my quiet, gliding craft wouldn’t spook the fish.

mallows shallows I picked another still day for my return in March, this time better prepared to paddle the area. In the meantime, I brushed up on some history. Turns out, Mallows Bay and the Patapsco are linked on this score. Both graveyards received poorly designed, barely used ships built hastily during a $1 billion U.S. Navy boondoggle after the start of World War I. While examples from this effort remain at Mallows Bay—Casmalia, Mono, Bayou Teche among others— and a few are believed to be moldering still in Curtis Bay and Curtis Creek in Baltimore, most of those put out by Baltimore shipyards joined the others who met their fate in the Burning Basin at the foot of Mallows Creek. A Baltimore local told a Baltimore Sun reporter in 1995 that construction defects were obvious once he’d compared the shipbuilding plans to his measurements of the remaining wrecks. No wonder that many saw little use before they were scrapped and burned. Elsewhere in Mallows Bay, there are unmarked and unmapped remains dating as far back as the Revolutionary War. During the Civil War, this stretch of the Potomac shoreline was heavily fortified to face the possibility of a cross-river confederate attack. Native American artifacts dating as far back 12,000 years have been found in the area. It’s nice to have these facts in pocket while perusing the watery landscape, giving fuel to imagine how Mallows Bay’s history over time has accumulated cultural layers. This time, I followed the selfguided tour map’s instructions, heading out to the Accomac, then turned upriver across open water toward the Georgia-built Casmalia. Rounding her, I pointed toward Grady’s Spit, a small protuberance of shoreline festooned with what the

storms have brought in—Igloo coolers and deck chairs tangled up with large tree limbs. The return trip along the coastline, put me up close and personal with the wrecks. Some vessels are grouped together, such as the Three Sisters Wrecks, lined up next to one another, and the Flowerpot Wrecks, so named because of their profusions of vegetation. Others are named individually, like the SS Afraina, known to have made at least one trans-Atlantic voyage, and the SS Boone, christened by First Lady Edith Wilson before a crowd of thousands. As I glided, I encountered a floating piece of waterlogged lumber, maybe ten feet long and eight-inches square, too heavy to for one man to pick up. It looked like old-growth timber, and probably broke loose from one of ghost fleet’s roster. It was encrusted with small mollusks and insect larvae, a reminder of how alive Mallows Bay is thanks to the wrecks. As spring arrives, the damsel flies and dragon flies hatch, and the bass will rise to the occasion. The wildlife must be accustomed to the substantial engine noise emanating from Quantico’s many military fly-overs. The entire route is a mere 2.5 miles, and any navigational confusion can be easily cleared up by heading for marked buoys, which bear numbers for corresponding points of interest on the map. It’s slow-going, so schedule about two hours to enjoy it. Just make sure to grab the map and bring it with you, and remember to leave the fancy kayak at home. h Van Smith was a longtime staff member of the now-defunct City Paper in Baltimore. Since building his first sea kayak in the 1990s, he has occasionally found reasons to commit acts of paddlingbased journalism.

THE AGRESSIVE PURSUIT of Leisure A family anchored by their floating summer home

E

very summer in the harbor of Gibson Island, where the Magothy River ends as it curls back on itself, a houseboat appears. It’s not at a dock but anchored toward the back of the harbor, well offshore and out of the way of the local boat traffic. The boat has been in that spot almost every summer since 1960. Or maybe since 1973— the answer depends on who in the family you ask. The family is the Boykins, three generations of whom have made the yearly pilgrimage to their home on the water. Lone Star is a 90-year-old houseboat bought by Mr. and Mrs. Boykin in 1960 and currently owned by their children. This generation is now preparing the next one to take over. Their children, young adults all, are learning the ropes. One of the siblings, Rebecca Boykin, known as Rebel, is a nurse who runs an operating room. She’s unpacking groceries in the small galley when I arrive after the sort trip out with the irrepressible Captain Denver Sanner, the Gibson Island harbor master, in the community launch. “You must be a Northerner,” Rebel says, since I get there a little early, which to houseboat people means I’m really early. Soon, Rebel’s daughter Tory, her niece, Charlotte Tracey, and Charlotte’s dad, John Tracey, arrive, either brought by Sanner’s son or in their own small boats. John’s wife and Rebel’s sister, Nina Tracey, will get there that night, after I’ve gone home. Most of the extended family lives in the Mid-Atlantic region, and in the summer, many of them come to the houseboat every weekend. Gibson Island is a private island, and this is a private houseboat. And yet the Lone Star is so much part of the landscape, such a community anchor, that visitors and neighbors treat it as a kind of public landmark. The houseboat was built in 1929 for George Mackubin, of George Mackubin & Co.. The company has had several name changes as partners left and new ones joined. You might know it as Legg Mason. In the early 1900s, Mackubin used his young firm to invest heavily in the Houston Oil Company, which built his group into the large investment firm it is today, with a 100-year presence in downtown Baltimore. In a nod to the state that made his wealth, Mackubin named his new boat the Lone Star. Mackubin, an Ellicott City native whose mother descended from Martha Washington, was a founding member of Gibson Island. He came to the island especially for duck season, staying warm at the potbellied stove in the boat’s living room. Early on, he anchored the boat in the harbor but moved it up the river to Redhouse Cove after a fight with the LEFT: A narrow hallway connects Gibson Island Club.

As Rebel tells it, her parents were spending a fair amount of time on Gibson Island by the late 1950s. Her father, who ran a costume jewelry business, loved to sail. Her mother was a landlubber from Michigan. “Every summer we would have to re-teach her how to do a bowline,” says Rebel. But her parents were smitten with Mackubin’s houseboat and told him they were interested if he were ever to sell. Which is what, by 1960, Mackubin wanted to do, asking more money for it than the Boykins could afford. The next potential buyer wanted to turn it into a riverboat casino, but Mackubin insisted it go to a family. He called the Boykins to see if they could make a deal. When they got off the phone, Mrs. Boykin told her husband, “Mortgage everything!” Since then, the Lone Star has shaped the family, as the kids grew up there and brought their own kids to do the same. The young cousins, in their 20s today, are more like siblings. To them, summer was the Lone Star—sleeping on the roof, jumping from the roof, having island kids over, playing in sports camps at the club. “It was freedom,” says Charlotte. There were rules, of course. You couldn’t run on the deck. You had to get back to the houseboat before dark. You could sleep on the roof, but you wake up early or you wake up with a sunburn. (The kids remember lying out like starfish while their grandmother slathered them with aloe vera.) You had to wear a lifejacket on deck until you passed the swimming test, which was a lap around the boat. It’s harder than it seems. The 85-foot-by-46-foot boat moves on its 150-foot chain, which is attached to railroad car axles that anchor it in the mud. It can be a long test. The kids had a lot of freedom, as long as they accepted the responsibility. And they are starting to accept the responsibility for the houseboat itself, of which there is no small amount. After all, the wooden Lone Star has been sitting in water for 90 years. For example: In 1974, the houseboat sank. It was winter, and the bilge pump failed. Because the water’s only 10 feet deep here, the top stuck out. Mr. Boykin used huge balloons to float the boat while pumping water out. The boat was salvageable, unlike much of what was inside it. The furniture was ruined, including an old player piano. John believes this is when the Boykins moved the boat to its current mooring. Rebel thinks they moved it when they bought it. The family also took the chance to renovate the boat and remove the engine. As John puts it, “It’s a boat, and yet it’s not Lone Star’s cabins are filled with a boat.” homey touches, but the roof is Today, the Lone Star is still a popular sleeping place for painted white, and it’s the kids. homey inside with beachy July/August 2019

trinkets. Anyone is allowed to add whatever they like, as long as they only use blue accents, which helps deter arguments. A cupola brightens a long narrow hallway that’s flanked by five bedrooms. There’s a living room one on end and a dining room and galley on the other. The galley received the biggest makeover, with a propane-fueled refrigerator replacing an old icebox, and windows added to brighten the space. They added ceiling fans throughout the boat and put a grill on the deck. The player piano was replaced, and the replacement eventually tossed. Today, they rely on Bluetooth speakers and DVDs for entertainment. If Boykin family getaways have an underlying first principle, it’s a devotion to making things fun. “I refer to Gibson Island in general as the aggressive pursuit of leisure,” says John, who works at PNC Capital Advisors and is also a trained pianist. When John and Nina’s son graduated from the Naval Academy in 2012, the family towed the houseboat to Annapolis for a week, using three smaller boats. It took four hours to get to Spa Creek, where it sloshed around from all the local traffic. The Boykins, Traceys, and friends piled into sleeping bags at night. The houseboat became a regular stop for the water taxi. Back in Gibson Island Harbor the family goes crabbing and windsurfing. They like to throw big parties—the houseboat cocktail is a rum and tonic, served to guests with a napkin reading “What happens on the Houseboat Stays on the Houseboat!” The trick to having fun once you’re out on the water is to have a kind of fatalism. You make do with what you have. One of their favorite activities is storm watching. The forecast is for stormy weather next day, and Charlotte’s excited to sit on the stern, where it’s dry, and watch it with her boyfriend, who hasn’t experienced a houseboat storm yet. “It’s a safe harbor but it’s so exciting,” she says. When the cousins were kids, their parents made a big show of telling them to batten down the hatches and get ready. “I had adrenaline when the storm rolled in, and then it’s just calm. Just calm when it is here, finally.” “Make do with what you have” is their attitude toward most things onboard. Grocery lists, especially, are planned extensively on land. They have a group text thread devoted to it. The family members consider themselves conservationists first, and have a septic system, LED lighting, and solar panels. They have AC, but they don’t use it except on the stillest, hottest nights. (There can be a surprising lack of breeze on the houseboat.) They collect rainwater for showers, which are limited to five minutes. “If you even take a shower,” says Rebel. If you do, you turn off the water while you The back deck is the perfect place soap up.

she says. They’ve learned that Dove sinks and Ivory in the harbor that’s been its sumfloats. mer home for decades. “You make it fun,” Rebel says. That sense of personal responsibility also extends to when something goes wrong. Be prepared, and for everything else, figure it out. The family is generally very prepared. John, Nina, and Rebel are teaching the upkeep to their kids, most of whom passed their boating safety courses by the age of 12. “There’s something every week that needs to be repaired,” John says. They must check that there is enough oil in the generator, that the bilge pump is working, and that propane has been loaded up. Bubblers stay running in the winter to keep the water from freezing around the boat. The Lone Star needs to be painted every couple of years. Basic maintenance is a big job, since the boat doesn’t come out of the water very often. Mr. Boykin kept a diary full of notes on how to take care of it. The Lone Star, this summer home, this boat-but-not-aboat, is part of the community and part of the island. Locals cruise by in their boats, and shout over the engine noise, passing tall tales to each other about the houseboat. I think they don’t realize how their voices carry over the water. It’s inevitable that the Lone Star would develop legends around it, as it’s been pulled to its harbor mooring each summer and then taken back to the cove each fall for half a century. If there’s one true thing the houseboat has taught the Boykins and their children, it’s about appreciating everything that surrounds it. “My mom would be, ‘Look at how beautiful it is. Look at that heron over there,’” Rebel says. “She was always pointing out the beauty of the sunrise or the sunset and making sure we paid attention to it.” Rebel remembers sleeping on the roof one night and seeing 14 falling stars. “We all have an appreciation for nature because of this boat,” John says. There are ospreys and a pair of bald eagles. Deer and ducks and geese. Efforts to clean up the Bay have brought otters back, too. The boat forces you to live differently, to experience differently. Every morning, your perspective is different, although that’s mostly because the boat swings around. It can be disorienting, and that can be a good thing.” Tory and Charlotte find that returning to the same place every year cements their memories. The boat is part of who they are, the past still with them, the present all they have. They are moored in their selves, and, always, in the family. h The approach to the Lone Star,

Getting Down Find a bit of serenity and something delicious through bottom fishing by Captain Chris D. Dollar

W

ho doesn’t need a break from this world of storms, both natural and tweeted? I suggest you hit the pause button on the run-and-gun style that’s become light-tackle jigging. Stow your trolling rods for a spell; set down the chum ladle; forget trying to break the national plug-casting distance record, and go bottom fishing—by which I mean, going for species that swim or settle near or on the Bay’s floor such as flounder, Atlantic croaker (hardheads), white perch, black drum, black sea bass, catfish, hogchokers, and so on. One of the great things about the Chesapeake Bay is there is no shortage of places to drop a line all the way down off a pier, from shore, from a bridge, or a skiff, dingy, paddle board, canoe, or kayak. Who knows how many personal-best fish, and probably a few state records, have been set by folks plunking down bloodworms to while away the hours? Not so many years ago, while fishing near the mouth of the Choptank River alongside a fleet of charter boats, we quickly caught our rockfish limit. When the tide started to run, a small school of bluefish busted a school of baitfish nearby, taunting us to catch a handful for the smoker. We obliged. The summer sun began

to fall in the western sky, creating a mosaic of porcelain blue. There was time left to fish, so we did what any self-respecting angling generalist should do: We anchored over a small live oyster reef and dropped cut bloodworms and peeler crabs onto the bottom to see what might be there. As dusk settled in, the bite turned on, and we reeled in white perch while hovering in a state of blissful suspension. The best bottom fishing in the Bay is over live-bottom areas, for which the Chesapeake is famous. These are places where oysters grow and maintain an active ecosystem of interdependent critters. Here, bottom fish can hide, rest, and feed in favorable water conditions continuously filtered and oxygenized by the oysters and their neighbors. Locating a good patch of live bottom means the difference between catching and wondering what you’re doing wrong. A good place to start is with the famous ADC Chesapeake Bay Chartbook which outlines and identifies the Bay’s traditional fishing hot-spots; it’s currently out of print, but worth picking up a used copy if you can find it. Most of these locations are centered on historical oyster reefs. If there are boats on your spot when you arrive, be courteous and setup where you won’t crowd them. If you come up empty but your neighbor is catching, make a strategic shift, or strike out for another likely place. Maryland’s part of the Bay is full of good bottom-fishing places. Above the Bay Bridges, Podicory Point, Snake Reef, and Belvidere Shoal draw anglers in the know. Meaty catfish have become prevalent here in the past couple of years. If you run out of Annapolis, then certainly you’ve wet a line at famous white perch haunts—Hacketts, Tolley, and Thomas Point bars. Across the Bay, the Chester, Eastern Bay (Hollicutts Noose Bar), and lower Choptank hold fish. Further south, Holland Point Bar and Cedar Point get their share of the July/August 2019

action, and Tangier Sound and Potomac River have numerous places to go bottom fishing. At the risk of insulting my native state of Maryland, Virginia waters not only hold ample bottom-fishing spots, but more gamefish diversity. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel is the largest man-made fishing structure on the mid-Atlantic coast. Go there. Virginia hotspots such as the Spike, Butler’s Hole and the Silos are worth a try, if you can find them. They are not in the Chesapeake Chartbook. On Virginia’s western shore consider fishing off of Windmill Point, the Hole in the Wall just south of Gwynn’s Island, and the York Spit. On the other side of the Bay, try the Cabbage Patch or Cherry Stone. Unless you’re targeting big fish such as black drum, a six- to seven-foot, medium-fast action rod matched to a 2500- or 3000-sized reel loaded with

10- to 12-pound test mono is a good outfit for bottom fishing. Braided Spectra (high molecular weight polyethylene fiber) line such as PowerPro and Spiderwire is low-stretch and more sensitive than mono, which allows you to better feel the strike, but if you have kids or novices on board, braid can be much more hassle than it’s worth. It’s slippery and finicky about knots, and it’s so fine that it can slice skin. It can easily foul into impossible bird’s-nest tangles. Keep it simple with plain old nylon monofilament line. The kind of bait you use depends on the kind of fish you’re after. Spot love bloodworms. For catfish, pieces of menhaden or chicken liver works well. Nightcrawlers, clams, soft or peeler crabs, squid, grass shrimp, and regular shrimp will catch a variety of species. Artificially flavored baits such as Gulp and FishBites can bring strikes, but not as well as fresh natural bait.

July/August 2019

The essential “top/bottom” or “high-low” bottom fishing rig is simply a two- to three-foot leader with a heavy two-ounce or bigger bank-sinker tied to the end, above which are tied two eight-inch tag lines with sharp hooks to hold your bait and catch your fish. They are easy to make and even easier to buy at any tackle shop. Bottom fishing is certainly on the tame side of Wild Chesapeake options. It doesn’t take a whole lot of effort or gear, and that’s the point. There is a serenity that comes with anchoring up, setting a rod in the holder, and kicking back as the world spins. You never know what you’re going to catch.
