TWO BOATS RENT ONE SLIP AT FULL PRICE

ast February, we sent Marty LeGrand out to Church Creek, Maryland (population 125 as of 2010) about six miles south of Cambridge for the 73rd running of the National Outdoor Show. The mission was to cover the event, and the star of the show is the muskrat, which has been the feature creature of the weekend celebration since the beginning. As the organizers put it: “You are now in Muskrat Country: the heartland of sportsmen, trappers, watermen and wildlife! We are proud to show you the best that comes from our boot-sucking marshes and the flowing water that surrounds them. Most of all, we hope to share the unique spirit and character of our hard-working people, who keep one foot in a technologically savvy world, and the other stuck deep in our traditional old school ways.” Our commitment to the story was propelled by Muskrat Lovely, a sublime documentary film hidden in the Vimeo cloud. We’d heard about the skinning contest, but the film brought home how fortunate we are to live among communities that revel in preserving the elemental sparks of Chesapeake culture and character. Here, I’ll let Marty describe the film, and I hope you’ll take 58 minutes ($3 to rent, $8 to own) and fall in love with Dorchester County all over again.

A

muskrat-skinning contest with its own beauty pageant? Filmmaker Amy Nicholson thought her notoriously droll father was joking when he told her they held such a thing near where he lived. He wasn’t.

In 2003, Nicholson, a Baltimore native, attended her first National Outdoor Show with a friend. A year later, she returned with a cameraman and a sound technician. They embedded themselves in South Dorchester for several weeks to film Muskrat Lovely, Nicholson’s first feature-length documentary. The 58-minute film debuted the following year, later earning acclaim and a national television audience on PBS’s Independent Lens. The beauty-and-beasties juxtaposition piqued Nicholson’s interest, but her touching film became more than that. “I was trying to get to the bottom of how those two things could possibly live together,” she said in a phone interview. “Sort of halfway through, I stopped asking. You just fall in love with the place and the people, and that’s what the film becomes about.” Muskrat Lovely follows eight beauty pageant contestants, but weaves in muskrat lore, trapping, skinning and cooking tips, and Dorchester’s often self-deprecating sense of humor. (You’re missing a funny bone if you don’t laugh at straight-faced local watermen reading beauty tips like, “If you have big feet, focus attention on your legs.”) Renting a theater in Cambridge, Nicholson invited the entire community to watch the first screening. She’s still greeted warmly there whenever she returns. “I’ve made another feature, but [Muskrat Lovely] was dreamy to make. It was because of the people. That place has magic.” — M.L. Muskrat Lovely is available at vimeo.com, reelhouse.org and filmsbyamy.com.

imberly Richie scrambles down a steep embankment past the rusty cab of a truck embedded in the hillside and pauses on the bank of the Patapsco River. A technician at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Institute (SERC), Richie is here to track river herring. These small fish are actually two species—alewife and blueback herring. They live most of their lives at sea, returning to rivers to spawn in the spring. Both species are in steep decline. Richie wades in, opens a one-liter bottle, and submerges it. Then, in less time than it took to don her hip waders, her sampling is done. The bottle contains only river water, and the fish are nowhere to be seen. This new technique for finding fish is called environmental DNA, or eDNA. The team Richie works with at SERC is among the first to use it in the Chesapeake Bay ChesapeakeBayMagazine.com

watershed. Fish leave behind scales, eggs, and waste as they swim. It all contains DNA. Geneticists can extract that DNA from the water, figure out which species it came from, and get a general idea of how abundant they are. Richie’s team is using the method to create a map of where river herring spawn throughout the watershed. Fisheries biologist Matt Ogburn heads the effort. “It was something that we recognized early on, that we would want an efficient way to sample a lot of sites,” he says. Because of the simplicity of the sampling technique, his team has been able to sample more than 200 sites on tributaries all along the Bay. Those tributaries, along with most of the rivers along the East Coast, once churned with river herring. A century ago, watermen on the Choptank River caught millions each year. “Some of the first Europeans in the U.S. said you could smell the fish before you even saw the stream they were spawning in,” Ogburn says. Pollution,

overfishing, and dam construction have since caused populations to plummet so drastically that the federal government is considering listing them under the Endangered Species Act— a decision on their status is expected early this year. The decline of river herring affects the many animals that eat them— osprey, otters, cod, cormorants, salmon, striped bass, bald eagles and so on. Ogburn hopes that by studying where river herring are still returning to spawn in relatively healthy numbers, we can improve those places where they aren’t doing so well. But finding and counting fish isn’t always straightforward. “If you have a fish tank in front of you, you can count how many fish are in it,” Ogburn says. In a river, they’re more elusive. “It matters whether you sample day or night, it’s warm or cold, or it has rained recently. It’s really hard to know how many fish are there.” Fisheries biologists have numerous tools for tracking down their research subjects. Electrofishing is common. But sending electrical pulses through the water and netting stunned fish requires more than one person, and it isn’t practical for very deep or wide streams. Nets designed to catch eggs and larvae

are standard tools. But this approach requires hours of picking through dead leaves and muck to find the eggs, some of which are impossible to identify by species. High-definition sonar, basically a souped-up fish-finder, is another way to track fish. But a unit can cost $90,000, and must remain in one site all season to be effective. Still, eDNA has its own challenges. Louis Plough of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science’s Horn Point Laboratory is the geneticist who decodes SERC’s water samples. He says it’s impossible to know if a given DNA sample came from one big fish or ten little fish, five minutes ago or a week ago. But Plough can see whether river herring are in a particular stream and whether there seem to be more in one place than another. Moving forward, Ogburn wants to use eDNA to study some of the manmade structures that block river herring from their spawning grounds. “There are tens of thousands of culverts and road crossings all throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed,” he says. Ideally, all of them would be redesigned with spawning fish in mind. But funds are limited. Ogburn wants to use

environmental DNA to identify the spots where a culvert redesign would give conservationists the biggest bang for their buck. “The state highway administration replaces a bunch of culverts every year,” he says. “If there’s a way we can incorporate information on river herring into decisions on which ones are priorities, we can both benefit fish and make the road infrastructure more resilient.” So far, the team has discovered that there seem to be more river herring on the Bay’s eastern shore than the western. And alewife appear to be more prevalent on the eastern shore, while blueback herring are more common on the western. No one knows why that’s the case, but it could have implications for how we manage these fish in the future, and eDNA gives researchers an important new factfinding tool. “The fact that water records something about the recent history of who’s been in the river,” says geneticist Plough, “that’s really powerful.”  Andrea Appleton is a freelance writer who covers science and the environment. She lives in Baltimore.

tanding at just over six feet, three inches and weighing in at 270 pounds, 48-year-old Albert “Buck” Kellam Doughty Jr. possesses strength and finesse, as proven by a long welding career and the delicate pieces of metal art he shapes. His home-based Hog Island Creations studio is just outside Eastville on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, equidistant from the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay. There, he produces delicately-formed wildlife art that is a far cry from his industrial welding origins. “I have lived all over Northampton County but never out of it,” he says. “My family dates back to the first settlers who came to this country in 1608.” He ticks of off numerous ancestors, including several who lived on Hog Island when that ChesapeakeBayMagazine.com

JAN FEB 19 TOB.indd 16

barrier island was inhabited. Doughty earned his welding certification at Eastern Shore Community College in 1992. “I was one of the Shields boys,” says Doughty, referring to Louis Shield, a teacher who developed the welding program at ESCC and produced numerous classes of skilled welders. “He worked on some major ships during his career and really knew his stuff. When you left his class, you were ready for most anything.” Doughty was a welder at Bayshore Concrete in Cape Charles and then for several area farms before trying his hand at artwork in 2006. “I sold three pieces at my first show and thought this might work out,” says Doughty, who soon won best-in-show awards at art festivals in Chesapeake and Suffolk. In 2008, he began producing artwork full-time, but when gas prices soared and the economy softened, he took on welding jobs to make ends meet. These days, virtually all of his time is dedicated to artwork, although he will take on the occasional welding job for old customers if it fits his schedule. Meanwhile, he’s a family man. He met his wife, Helené, when she was a French exchange student at Northampton High School, and they have a 15-year-old daughter, Chloe, and a 19-year-old son Morgan. Doughty was 10 years old when his 50-year-old father, a Northampton County deputy sheriff, died from skin cancer. He couldn’t play high-school sports because he was busy working. Doughty learned from his cousins how to keep lawn mowers and cars running, which helped out. “I had to grow up quick and help support the family. I had two sisters and my Mom at home, but I was the only boy in the house,” recalled Doughty. Today, he’s restoring a 1966 Dodge Coronet. “I’ve got it running like a Singer sewing machine,” he says. And he’s making up for lost outdoor time by hunting and fishing whenever he can.

Time remains in short supply, as he recently took on the job of chief engineer, keeping the equipment running for the Eastville Volunteer Fire Company. Otherwise, he is shaping metal in his backyard shop after dropping his daughter off at school. His recent works include an octopus used as the base of a table, a seahorse, hunting scenes, and a surprising 3-D landscape of New York City. An exquisite piece showing a butterfly emerging from its cocoon is on display at the Cape Charles Brewery. Many pieces are on display at Chatham Vineyard in Machipongo. “I can make anything. You name it, I can make it—clams, trees, crabs…it doesn’t matter,” he says. He has produced over 1,000 pieces, which have sold for as little as $50 and as much as $13,000. He uses scrap metal, often donated or found, for most of his works. Doughty was the 2017 Eastern Shore Ducks Unlimited Artist of the

Year and created a black duck sculpture that brought $1,600 in the annual auction. Doughty regularly demonstrates metal sculpting at the Ducks Unlimited Fall Greenwing Youth Event, and is well-known for his easygoing and generous nature. “I don’t mind giving to good causes when asked, but sometimes I think I am giving away as many pieces as I sell,” he says. Doughty is a member of the local Ducks Unlimited committee. “I am a great believer in protecting the environment. People say we need more jobs,” he adds. “But I’ve never had to look for work. If you are willing to learn and can fix things, there will always be work for you.”  Bill Sterling is a retired editor/general manager of the Eastern Shore News and outdoor editor for the Eastern Shore Post who enjoys hunting and fishing on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.

DN iceboats at Rock Hall in 1977.

Sailing on a Frozen Chesapeake by Pete Lesher

AUSTIN WALMSLEY

M 20

ost sailors lay their boats up for the winter and console themselves by reading sailing adventures when outside temperatures drop below freezing; a lucky few head south to the tropics. But when bitter cold persists and the Chesapeake Bay freezes, the “hard water sailors” emerge. Ice thick enough for winter sports doesn’t happen frequently on Bay waters, but when it does, the iceboats begin to appear. On a chilly December 31, 1917, with a high temperature of 9 degrees, Talbot County sailor and boat builder C. Lowndes Johnson, recorded “We have been skating and iceboating all day … I have never known such ice as there is now on

ChesapeakeBayMagazine.com

JAN FEB 19 TOB.indd 20

the [Miles] river and we are sailing everywhere, but have found a few small places which are not very strong, and these we go around.” Lowndes and his brother Graham constructed their 20-foot stern-steering iceboat in January 1904, but the winter of 1918 provided unequalled iceboating conditions. Their neighbor’s iceboat provided the inspiration. Jacob G. Morris had relocated to the shores of the Chesapeake from farther north, where iceboats were more common. By February 16, 1904 it was “blowing a gale all day” and the brothers pitted their iceboat against Morris’s. “We tried her first with a single reef in the mainsail but could not keep the weather runner on the ice … She outsailed Capt. Morris’s although he was carrying it on her for all she was worth.” Like the Johnson’s boat, earlier iceboats were homebuilt. Iceboater Vance Strausburg recalled one made from the former cross at a community church in the Middle River area in the late 1960s or early 1970s. Stern-steering iceboats continued to appear on Chesapeake creeks and coves, but a new type appeared in the 1930s that gradually replaced them—iceboats with a steering skate in the bow—particularly the DN class, named for its sponsor, the Detroit News. The winter of 1977 was the coldest in memory for the region, with overnight lows below freezing for 58 nights in a row. Ice closed the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal for the first time since its opening as a sea-level canal 50 years earlier. Barges delivering heating oil were frozen in. Oystermen wielded chain saws to cut holes in the ice directly over the oyster bars and worked from trucks instead of boats. In January 1977, the DN North American Championship, followed by

the 20 knot winds with gusts to 25. Capsizes not only damaged the boats, but catapulted sailors onto the ice, resulting in injuries. On the first weekend of sailing, iceboater Stan Nadler of New Jersey broke his nose when his boat fell into an open-water hole that had formed where the tide ran faster. Mautz qualified for the finals in the North American Championship but didn’t finish the third race when a port tack sailor failed to give way and collided with him. He told Washington Post reporter Angus Phillips, “It all happened so fast” and Phillips noted that Mautz “still didn’t know who it was” at the end of the day. The North American championship concluded on Monday, February 7, with Michigander John Schuch winning the five-race final series. The following day, the World Cup got under way, and Henry Bossett of Red Bank, NJ, took the honors. The iceboating during the long, hard freeze of January and February 1977 had a lasting impact on the Chesapeake. The newly acquired iceboats have reappeared every icy winter that followed. In 2007, they

the Gold Cup World Championship, was to have been held in Red Bank, New Jersey, but snowfall there made the ice unusable. Veteran iceboat sailor Homer Sieder had moved to St. Michaels several years earlier and reported clear ice, so the competition moved south to the Miles River Yacht Club, the farthest south the championship has ever been held. Sailors from the Midwest, New Jersey, New York, New England, Canada, Germany, Holland, and Poland arrived. Three local sailors scrambled to participate, purchasing or borrowing DN class ice boats: log canoe skippers Vance Strausburg and Jimmy Wilson, as well as St. Michaels dentist John Mautz. Iceboating has unique perils, including rough ice and open water. Ice formed on brackish Chesapeake water is softer than that on freshwater lakes. The cold persisted, but by the weekend of February 5-6 pressure ridges had formed in the 8- to 10-inchthick ice. Hitting the ridges spelled catastrophe for about ten of the 98 boats registered for the North Americans, especially at speeds of nearly 60 miles per hour attained in

sailed in Claiborne Cove off Eastern Bay, where the water is uniformly shallow with little current beneath, “so it’s super safe, other than crashing and bruising,” according to local sailor Roger Pickall. “If the ice is talking to you, if it’s groaning, if it’s pinging, if it’s making noise, you’re on good, solid ice,” says Pickall. The Miles River is regarded as risky, because of the greater depth and current under the ice, which will open holes—often in the same places that caused problems in 1977. In February 2015, two iceboats went through these holes on the Miles River. While the sailors were rescued promptly, recovery of the iceboats had to wait until the following day. Pickall says, “It’s quite a thrill, that’s for sure.” The boats go so fast, “you create your own wind. When you feel yourself slowing down, you just heat it up [steer closer to the wind]. You’re always sailing closehauled.” h Pete Lesher is a log canoe sailor and chief curator at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels.

n each flock, there’s one goose that’s sort of in overall command,” Sean Mann whispers from the corner of pit blind. He’s eyeing a group of Canadas cruising down the Miles River on a mission to somewhere. Mann blows into his Eastern Shoreman goose call. “You want to say taaahoot,” he says, and somehow the distinctive herrrr-onk of a Canada goose chirps out. The geese, about 300 yards out, take a look. “When the geese are on their wintering grounds, as they are here in Maryland, one goose usually leads the flock,” Mann says. He changes up the pitch and frequency to a greeting call as the flock turns his way. “This is the cluck call, h’ronk, h’ronk. This goose is the one that you want to talk to—herrrr-onk, herrrr-onk. The lead goose is the only goose calling until they commit to landing, and then all of the others will join in.” Mann belts out a volley of clucks with the lead goose, which commits. The flock locks in for landing. You could be forgiven for thinking Mann was raised by geese. Generations of

geese have been fooled into thinking his hails, greeting, and laydown calls were coming from one of their own. Growing up in Easton, he absorbed everything he could, hanging around his dad’s gun shop, and was obsessed with learning how to “talk goose” from a young age. He was guiding by the time he was in high school and won the World Goose Calling Championship soon after graduating from college. Mann started making goose calls to get that extra edge as a hunter and a guide, since nothing on the market could quite capture what he was hearing from the birds. After a few trials and errors, he created the Eastern Shoreman call, which is so effective he could charge a premium price and still hardly meet demand. Today, Sean Mann Outdoors makes a variety of duck and goose calls and boasts a professional staff of over a dozen guides. “I was severely bitten by goose hunting at a young age,” says Mann. The business of making calls came from his desire to improve his game. “Making a better call meant being a better hunter, which meant being a better guide, which meant better pay, which meant I could spend more time hunting!” Calling the geese can be more satisfying than the shooting. “It’s also just really a lot of fun to be able to see a bird and call it in,” he says. “In contrast, you can’t see a fish approach very often. You can’t call in that bluefish or rockfish, and watch them come in. But you’re able to watch geese sometimes from over a mile away based on your presentation.” Nothing gets a hunter’s adrenaline pumping like the sound of honkers on the horizon and the anticipation as they move your way like a group of WWII bombers. Mann says the first waves start arriving in mid-September, but it’s usually not until around Thanksgiving that we get our first major push of birds. A cold front will usually slam into the region overnight, bringing thousands of

Canada geese riding in on a northwest wind. “But January is my sweet spot,” says Mann. “When the holidays wrap up, a lot of people have checked waterfowling off their list, but we’re just getting started! The snows [snow geese] are showing up, new waves of Canadas are coming in. If you’re going to have friendly, fresh new birds, you’re going to have them in January.” On some of the colder winters, the Shore can hold half a million geese, or over half the Atlantic Flyway population. But Mann says the birds in Kent County, Cecil County, Queen Anne, and on the Sassafras and Chester rivers, don’t always act like the birds in Talbot or Dorchester Counties. “They’re very different birds up there,” he says. There’s also multiple kinds of Canadas and multiple kinds of snow geese, and they all act differently and talk differently. “Every hunt is different too, and the lighting conditions change the way the hunt goes,” says Mann. “When it’s snowing, it’s magic, and after the snow, when it’s totally freezing, and the sun hits the goose as its flies across the snow, and you can see its breath— that just knocks me out. It’s sensory overload.”  Patrick Ottenhoff writes 52 Week Season, a website featuring interviews with hunting and fishing guides in the Mid-Atlantic.

Coming Through the Rye Resurrecting an Old Spirit by Henry Hong

ourbon currently boasts a near-monopoly in the realm of American whiskey, but another spirit has long held sway around the Chesapeake—Maryland rye whiskey, a fruit-forward, easy-sipping, approachable style that was nationally popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. A handful of the 30 or so registered distilleries in Maryland are bringing the spirit home again—Baltimore’s Sagamore Spirit being the most prominent. But good whiskey can’t be rushed. As of this writing, Sagamore is produced by a large distilling operation called Midwest Grain Products in Indiana, with plans for a fully local blend in the near future. The Lyon Distilling Co., in St. Michaels, claimed the title of first rye in Maryland since 1972 (more on that later) when its limited edition Maryland Free State Rye hit the glass in 2013. ChesapeakeBayMagazine.com

JAN FEB 19 Ches Cocktail.indd 28

Catoctin Creek distilling, in Virginia, has been making an awardwinning rye close to home, and the Baltimore Spirits Company offers Epoch Straight Rye Whiskey, which was sold via crowdfunding in early 2016 and delivered to backers in mid-2018. It is distilled, aged and bottled in Maryland, and the rye grain is sourced from a farm in Thurmont, Maryland. Blackwater Distilling, on Kent Island, makers of Sloop Betty vodka, also has a limited-run, ongoing rye whiskey project, and DC’s One Eight Distilling has gotten into the act with its District Made (formerly Rock Creek) Rye whiskey distilled, aged, and bottled in that city. Rye was the first recorded whiskey distilled in the US, in 1640 in the tiny New Netherland settlement on what is now Staten Island, but Maryland and Pennsylvania are the places most associated with the spirit. Corn, though native to the New World, was more difficult to grow in the mid-Atlantic than Europe’s hardy rye grain, which was quickly established as the crop of choice among early colonists. Maryland whiskey consisted of roughly 2/3 rye, 1/3 corn, and a small amount of malted grain, which is added to aid fermentation. The other prominent whiskey of the time, Pennsylvania or Monongahela whiskey, was usually distilled exclusively from rye, which resulted in a bolder, grassy, sharper-flavored liquor. George Washington’s recipe, now produced in small batches at the reconstructed Monticello distillery, was 60 percent rye, 35 percent corn, and five percent barley. That Maryland-style mix was named Virginia’s official state spirit in 2017. Early American farmers made use of their surplus grain (in addition to corn and other cereals) by making beer, but beer was highly perishable.

Distilling offered a means of making their harvest both shelf-stable by removing impurities, and more portable by concentrating it. This was a skill well known to settlers from Europe, and in Maryland many of those settlers were Irish, who were accustomed to the smooth-tasting spirit resulting from triple-distillation process common in their homeland. Demand spread across the continent after the Civil War, with soldiers returning home from Maryland taking their taste for the distinct tipple with them. As cities on the coasts and their thirsty population grew, farming and eventually production crept further west. In the western region of the Virginia colony, homesteaders were offered free land as an incentive to grow corn and settle the area

(some of that land later became Kentucky). It was the grain subsidy, rather than the oft-praised qualities of the water, that largely drove whiskey production there. An important note is that whiskey up until the late 1700s was clear. By modern legal standards, which require aging in charred barrels, it would not have been considered whiskey. Although charring of barrels was a known technique in the old world, the practice of intentionally resting a clear distillate in them remains unclear in origin. One theory holds that along the Monongahela in Western Pennsylvania, distillers would have to make long trips to get their whiskey to Philadelphia and Baltimore. Their whiskey could end up languishing in barrels for months if weather and road conditions were poor. These barrels were valuable multi-function storage vessels, storing one commodity on the way to market and another on the way back. Oysters would have been a common cargo to bring back from Baltimore. With limited means to remove odors or flavors from the wood that might seep into the next load of whiskey, distillers had little choice but to use fire to dry and disinfect the interior of their barrels. Clear whiskey that required a long voyage acquired a reddish-brown hue and secondary flavors from the charred wood. This whiskey became known as “Old Monongahela”, rising to such lasting notoriety that Melville compares the color of a whale’s blood to it in Moby Dick, which was published in 1851. Eventually, the flavors imbued from aging became the expected norm in whiskey, and even Maryland rye acquired a Monongahela hue. No less a Baltimorean than H.L. Mencken listed rye whiskey among his favorite beverages, and quoted a friend calling “Maryland whiskey—

the most healthful appetizer yet discovered by man.” According to Bud Johns’ biography The Ombibulous Mr. Mencken, he favored the Monticello brand, distilled in Baltimore, which Mencken’s own father claimed was “the best medicine he had ever found for toning up the stomach.” The heyday of rye whiskey would end with prohibition in 1920, an occasion Mencken marked by selling his car in order to stock his liquor cabinet. The only true Maryland whiskey to survive to the modern day was the Pikesville brand, although production was moved to a larger distillery in Baltimore in 1936. It was made there for 36 more years, and the recipe was eventually acquired by a Kentucky company, leaving the gap that would be filled by Lyon Distilling 41 years later. The Kentucky product was sold regionally as Pikesville Supreme Straight Rye Whiskey until 2016, when the distiller decided to discontinue the locally-beloved value-priced brand and instead introduce to the market a premium version of Pikesville, which is aged twice as long, at triple the price. One Baltimore journalist, in a Mencken-like act of foresight, picked up five cases of the old blend before it disappeared. Pikesville’s move was unsurprising, if widely lamented, since it is only in the last several years that rye whiskey has begun its comeback. Established distillers elsewhere in the country began distributing nationally, and new ones began to appear, angling their offerings as niche, artisan products. It has taken even longer for commercial rye whiskey-making to return to the Chesapeake region, and at last, to find its way home.

That power range now extends from lightweight 2.5-hp clamp-on dinghy engines to firebreathing 627-hp V-8s. We boating writers who have sea-trialed these engines through the transition and measured speed improvements in relation to fuel flow marvel at the improvements, and, as boat owners, we smile broadly. It turns out that the polluting blue smoke and high gas bills from old-style outboards were clear signs of fuel waste, which new technologies could remedy very much to the

e are fourteen years into the era of clean outboards mandated by the Clean Air Act of 1992, California Air Resources Board regulations, and similar directives from the European Union. For those of us old enough to have grown up with carburetor-fed, two-stroke outboard motors, it’s hard to believe that that much time has passed. The old technology got us out on the water for many years, but we breathed a lot of blue unburned oil smoke, spent a lot of money on fuel that got wasted, and changed out oil-fouled spark plugs frequently to cajole our engines into idling halfway-smoothly. If we ran our engines a lot, we had to replace them every few years. No more. Give credit to the leaders who nudged the process along and thank the marine manufacturers for recognizing that clean air and

EVINRUDE E˜TEC G2 300 direct benefit of us boaters. The seven gas outboard manufacturers selling in the United States have responded with fierce competition to produce better and better engines built on an array of digital, metallurgical, and lubrication breakthrough technologies. It’s not uncommon now for well-maintained engines to run reliably for 3,000 hours, with some topping 5,000 (an average recreational outboard runs 50 hours per year). In parallel, boatbuilders are designing hulls around specific engines. In a significant number of cases, the outboards are replacing straightshaft inboards and inboard/outboards on boats 30 to 50 feet long, with digital control systems and sophisticated transom brackets allowing two, three, or four engines to run as an integrated team. At Judge Yachts in Denton, Md. for example, all orders for the 36 Chesapeake over the last four years have been for hulls with twin V-6 Suzuki 300s or 350s. Using “digitalbackbone” cable technology adapted from the auto industry, modern boats have hull, engine, electronics, and accessories integrated as completely as we expect from a new Ford F150 or Chevy Suburban. To the manufacturers’ credit, they have paid attention to all boaters, from cruisers looking to power small inflatable dinghies, anglers in 15-foot jonboats, and families in 23-foot runabouts, to offshore anglers running to the canyons. Check the full horsepower ranges of the manufacturers and you’ll see as much attention paid to 9.9s, 60s, 115s, and 150s as the big V-6 and V-8 engines. So, who makes the best? Tough question. Competition is so fierce that none of the players can afford to turn out lemons. Consider also that these engines are far more complex than their predecessors. Sophisticated electronic engine management systems and self-adjusting valve trains have done away with old-style tune-ups. So, what these modern marvels need mostly is regular lubricant changes, clean fuel, and freshwater flushes. If something goes wrong, diagnosis means plugging them into laptops with the manufacturer’s proprietary software. Thus, for a prudent skipper, the decision on

which brand to buy comes down to who will service it. As a boating writer, I have developed respect for all of the brands summarized here, but as a commercial operator whose skiff works for a living, I’ve based my choice on who can keep me running when the chips are down. So, who is offering what for 2019?

Evinrude Alone among the outboard manufacturers, Evinrude has opted for a direct-injected, twostroke fuel system called E-Tec that relies on electro-magnetic injectors feeding cylinders sequentially under extreme high pressure, with air and exhaust flow optimized in the larger G2 (second-generation) engines up to 300-hp through a design process built on computational fluid dynamics. Sound complex? Electronically it is, but it works, and the two-stroke arrangement allows far fewer moving parts than the more complicated four-strokes of other manufacturers. In-house tests indicate superior torque, fuel economy and emissions scores througout the rpm range compared to the competition. The company also offers the Evinrude Intelligent Piloting System, an integrated steering and control system. (Look for a thorough test of a 150 E-Tec G2 on a very special skiff in CBM later this year.)

Honda Honda was the first engine manufacturer to commit completely to cleaner four-stroke outboard technology thirty years ago, and their 90-hp and 130-hp engines led the outboard revolution in the late 1990s. Like the other Japanese manufacturers, the company has a broad stable of powerheads to draw from, ranging from single-cylinder models used for portable lawn maintenance equipment to the sophisticated V-6s that power its well-proven vans and sport utility vehicles. The company is conservative in producing new models, but they do take advantage of evolving fuel management technologies, and the 2.5- to 250-hp engines have a strong track record for durability and January/February 2019

efficiency in both recreational and commercial duties. The 135- and 150-hp models have proven especially well-suited to 19- to 22-foot centerconsole fishing boats.

Mercury For 2019, Mercury offers a new line of sophisticated V-6 and V-8 four-stroke engines producing 175 to 300 horsepower. In the process, it has phased out its OptiMax directinjected, two-stroke outboards and all but the 350 of its inline 6-cylinder, supercharged, Verado four-stroke engines. Since 2004, those Verados proved to be surprisingly durable, powerful and efficient. The new engines, however, with double overhead camshafts, compact powerheads, and significantly reduced internal friction, are extraordinarily light in weight and still possess the thrust to push the ever-larger boats being developed for them. The mid-range 4-cylinder engines of 40- to 150- hp have well-deserved reputations for power, efficiency, and durability. (Full disclosure: this writer has been running Merc 60s on his hard-working skiff since the summer of 2000. The present engine is a 2012 model with a lot of years left in it.) Meanwhile, Mercury has devoted much engineering expertise to its SmartCraft integrated electro-mechanicalhydraulic control systems, elimination of noise/ vibration/harshness, and design of propellers

and gearcases to help fit boaters needs precisely. The company has also worked carefully with Tohatsu, its small-engine joint-venture partner, to develop new, batteryless, fuel injection systems for its 15- to 20-hp and 25- to 30-hp models.

Seven Marine Seven Marine is a new company started by a former Mercury engineer, which amazingly incorporates a supercharged, 6.2-liter, aluminum, Cadillac V-8 block onto an outboard lower unit and transmission developed in cooperation with ZF Marine. Depending on boat size and projected speed, these 527-, 557-, and 627-hp engines (yes, really) are available with a range of lower units and 3-, 4- and 5-blade propellers, including one system with twin, contra-rotating propellers. Most often, multiple (two, three, four, or even five) Seven Marine engines power boats from 34 to 65 feet long. These are most definitely up-market rigs beyond the needs of most Chesapeake boaters, but the technology is remarkable. Look to hear more from Seven Marine, because earlier this year, Volvo Penta, headquartered in Chesapeake, Va, purchased majority ownership in the company.

Suzuki Like Honda, Suzuki has a wide range of powerheads to employ in its outboards. The company entered the U.S. market in the early ‘90s with old-style two-strokes but introduced its first four-stroke—a tough, powerful, efficient, and super-quiet fuel-injected 70-hp engine in 1997. Over the years, many of those 70s have gone into long-time service on crabbing skiffs in the lower Bay. Since then, the line has expanded to powerful 250- and 300-hp V-6s and a new 350-hp V-6 with contra-rotating propellers. The 115- and 140-hp engines have proven themselves on 19- to 22-foot boats. Suzuki was also the first manufacturer to offer smaller, 20- to 25-hp engines with battery-less fuel injection, which are much beloved by crabbers trot-lining from aluminum jonboats. In recent years, the company has increased its dealerships around the Chesapeake to provide strong service and parts availability.

on boats Tohatsu Tohatsu began as a small engine manufacturer in the 1920s. It focused on outboards for commercial fishermen beginning in the 1950s and also became a leader in portable fire pumps. Today, the company manufactures light, sophisticated, four-stroke outboards up to 30 horsepower, which are solid performers on skiffs, dinghies and small RIBs. They also build a line of light but rugged, direct-injected twostrokes from 40 to 115 horsepower. The ones we have tested are remarkably fuel-efficient. In addition, Tohatsu offers highly-engineered large four-strokes from 40 to 250 horsepower. The larger engines have proven themselves especially well on boats that must work for a living.

including, for several years, a line of directinjected two strokes, but it has been all fourstroke now for a decade. Successive generations have proved lighter, quicker, and more powerful while retaining durability and efficiency. All Yamaha’s engines are solid performers, with a new, light, 25-hp, battery-less, fuel-injected model anchoring the lower end of the line. The high-thrust 50-60-70 series, which shares some engineering genes with the Mercurys of the same power, is much beloved by commercial operators, while the 150 is one of the finest overachievers ever built. The 200- to 300-hp engines power many offshore fishing boats in single, twin, triple, and even quad configurations. For multiple-engine rigs, Yamaha offers seamless integration with digital steering and control through its sophisticated Helm Master system. The company’s new 425-hp XTO Offshore V-8 is already pushing boats up to 50 feet long. See our review of twin 425s on Grady-White’s Canyon 336 center console in last month’s issue of Chesapeake Bay Magazine.

An Afterword There are serious developments to watch in both diesel and electric outboards. At the 2018’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October, British company Cox Powertrain introduced an innovative 300-hp diesel, while Germany’s Torqeedo exhibited its Deep Blue electric outboard and inboard drive systems and batteries. We’ll have reports on them later this year. Stay tuned.  CBM Editor at Large and author John Page Williams is a licensed captain and Maryland fishing guide.

usan Windsor was looking for a judge. Not a missing magistrate, but a volunteer willing to sample the entrees in the

National Outdoor Show’s cooking contest. She needed three tasters. I was to become one of them. ¶ The Outdoor Show is southern Dorchester County’s annual mid-winter block party, Olympics, and trade fair, and this neighborhood has a way of quickly assimilating visiting greenhorns like me. Scarcely 30 minutes after one of the show’s shuttle buses dropped us at South Dorchester K-8 School, Windsor had sweet-talked me into judging a competition whose essential ingredient I’d never before eaten. Her persuasiveness was even more impressive considering she’d never tasted muskrat either. “I’m not about to. I don’t eat it,” explained the friendly, busy lady who has organized the show’s legendary muskrat-cooking contest for the past six years.

uskrat consumption is not for the digestively hesitant. If you hail from this marshy, timelessly serene corner of the county, you embrace your culinary birthright with gusto—or not. Personal judgments seem admirably absent here. But visitors learn that regardless of one’s inclination to devour them, the cult of muskrats—those buck-toothed, oddly adorable, breeds-like-a-bunny denizens of the marshes—still holds powerful sway. Every winter since 1938, minus a World War II hiatus, Dorchester Countians have made the aquatic critter with the silken belly fur the centerpiece of the Outdoor Show, a celebration of sporting and cultural life that begins with a young ladies’ beauty pageant and culminates on the same twinkly lit stage with the self-proclaimed World Championship Muskrat Skinning contest. Golden Hill is a splotch of a place on the fringe of Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge about 15 miles southwest of Cambridge. For one Friday night and a Saturday in late February, when ice stills the tidal marshes and trapping season winds down, thousands of local residents and curious visitors converge on Golden Hill’s Eisenhower-era former high school for a celebration of muskrats, other native wildlife and “Dorchester County trappers, watermen and sportsmen,” a fair share of whom happen to be women. Contestants vie for trophies and bragging rights in skills that haven’t lost Eastern Shore practicality: goose-, duck-, and turkey-calling; oyster-shucking, trotline-baiting, trap-setting and log-sawing. But the gold standard for Outdoor Show braggadocio goes to those who can trim the hide off a deceased muskrat faster and cleaner (no left-behind belly fur, no cut-off noses, no knife-nicked pelts)

than their competitors, who, in the men’s and women’s divisions, are so numerous it takes two evenings to determine the champions. Saturday night’s finals pack the school gymnasium where proof of admission (your muskrat image-stamped hand) is required to cheer on the Abbotts, Flowerses, Foxwells and other Outdoor Show superstars. The cooking contest is, by its nature, less cutthroat, but equally clan competitive. My foremost judging credential was that I wasn’t related to the mother-daughter duo who perennially dominate the event. If muskrat cooking had Top Chefs, Nellie Flowers and Rhonda Aaron would be national celebrities. (Actually, Aaron is a celebrity, in the sense that she appeared on Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods show.) Contest organizer Windsor corralled two other genetically impartial judges: another Marty, a professional chainsaw sculptor and former culinary student from suburban Philadelphia, and Mike, a local electrical contractor and outdoorsman who—unlike us Martys—had actually eaten muskrat. With hours to go before being sequestered with our taste buds and tally sheets, I headed to the cafeteria to sample the meat awaiting us. I took the long route, down hallways and into classrooms where vendors sold bas-relief crab plaques made with beer bottle caps, photographs and greeting cards depicting Chesapeake scenery, workboat models twice the size of a laptop with to-scale crab pots, collectible wooden turkey calls, custom leather work, sea glass jewelry, sailboats made with driftwood and, naturally, muskratthemed items—cutting boards, T-shirts, silver necklaces. One couple peddled skeletal art that they fashion from road kill, including brightly painted and elaborately bejeweled deer skulls perfect for Día de Muertos celebrations.

n the cafeteria, volunteers, flush-faced from working over steam tables, dished out crab cakes, soft crab sandwiches, oyster fritters, oyster stew, crab soup, and muskrat meat ($1 for a leg sample in a cup, $5 for the leg-rib combo plate), all prepared with ingredients locally—but unpretentiously—sourced. I ordered a soft crab sandwich (two crisp little fellas smashed between white bread slices), French fries, and a muskrat cup. My strategy: Eat the sandwich and then the muskrat, saving

the fries for purging my palate or dislodging one of the muskrat’s infamously tiny bones. A lady next to me in line eyed my cup of muskrat suspiciously. “That doesn’t look too good,” she observed—sympathetically, I thought. She told me she’d tried muskrat once. “I didn’t like it very much. I’m not going to try it again.” Her tone made clear I mustn’t be swayed by her critique. Muskrat is generally stewed or roasted for hours, but, in either case, must be “de-musked” (relieved of its scent glands) and saltwater-soaked beforehand— preferably overnight—to deactivate its eye-watering pungency. My muskrat piece, a small, brownish-gray joint, seemed to taunt me from its little receptacle. Sampling it, I detected the dish’s traditional sage flavoring plus a healthy dose of pepper. It had the texture of cooked liver and a gamey but not unpleasant taste that didn’t remind me of chicken. In short, it wasn’t disgusting. I’d read somewhere that one devotee claims muskrat is supposed to taste “like a wet dog smells.” At a nearby table, I met Mike Sears and his friend Kim Farrall from Kent Island. Sears was eating muskrat ribs, which did contain small bones, although not trout-like in number, as I’d read. Sears told me he cooks muskrat but doesn’t trap them, buying his frozen from a local market. Farrall said she’s tasted “rat”, as they’re called, but he isn’t a devoted consumer. Others apparently are. The cafeteria serves muskrat for a limited time only on Saturday afternoon, and the supply invariably runs out before demand does. Once a staple of weekend church and firehouse suppers, muskrat dinners are still served on the Eastern Shore and “marsh rabbit” (muskrat’s more palatable nickname) periodically appears on the menu of country restaurants.

ver in the gym, Marcus Flowers was about to show a couple dozen spectators and the newly crowned Miss Outdoors, Jordan LeCompte, how to skin a muskrat. Kneeling on the catwalk where pageant finalists sashayed last night, he had with him a knife, a sheet of cardboard (the traditional skinning platform), several limp ex-muskrats, and a roll of paper towels. Skinners supply their own rats, which must be killed at least two hours before the contest, according to the rules, and

then locked away until needed. (A freshly caught muskrat skins more easily, so time limits ensure a level skinning field.) Timed with stopwatches, competitors skin five muskrats each in the finals. He or she who produces “clean”—i.e. sellable—pelts the fastest wins. The intricacies of separating a muskrat from its outer layer can be graphic, but, essentially, the technique goes like this: Begin with a sharp knife (Flowers’s had a narrow, pointy blade about four inches long); make a few strategic cuts, beginning at the rump; tug the hide vigorously while rolling it toward the final separation point, the head; and, with a final cut, you’ve produced what resembles a wet, streaky-pink sock—the muskrat’s inside-out pelt. Ideally, you’ve skinned the rat without slicing or tearing its hide, or removing body parts you’re not supposed to. “If you rip that nose off, you’re done,” Flowers said. Onlookers aimed their smart phone cameras at him between the large, festive bows that festooned the catwalk. Seated next to him as he skinned, wearing her glittering tiara, furtrimmed Miss Outdoors sash, a 2018 Miss Outdoors, Jordan T-shirt, blue jeans and beige flats, LeCompte, gets a skinning LeCompte watched without a hint of lesson from Marcus Flowers. squeamishness (more than I could say). Per Outdoor Show tradition, she will engage another beauty queen in a ceremonial skin-off tonight, so she needs to learn her pelt-removing chops. Flowers, his hands bloodstreaked, made quick work of another muskrat body, and then another: “You wouldn’t believe how much it wears you out skinning five rats.” Fortunately, the queens will skin just one apiece. The 2003 men’s champion, Flowers learned skinning from his now 90-year-old mother, the renowned “Miss Nellie” Flowers of muskrat-cooking prominence. “She’d still go out trapping with us if we’d let her,” he told me later. “She showed me how to skin the old way,” he told the gym’s rat-watchers, by which he meant before legendary skinner Elihu Abbott invented the “two-cut” method favored today. Competitive skinning BE (Before Elihu) required multiple lacerations per rat and three to four minutes to skin five. The Roger Bannister of skinners, Elihu achieved the record-smashing “five-muskrat

minute” and won his first championship in 1953, taking seven more titles over the next decade. AE, skinners used Elihu’s method and the speediest average an impressive 20 seconds per muskrat. Competition is equally keen among the women, often in a family feud way. “I think they’re all Abbotts this year,” Flowers said of tonight’s women finalists. “We got three Abbotts in the men’s, myself and a Robbins.” In addition to providing lean protein for the dinner table, muskrats once earned trappers a healthy winter income, but pelt and meat prices have fallen sharply. Today, tramping Dorchester’s muddy marshes to check traps is as much ritualistic as remunerative. “It’s just something that gets in your blood,” Flowers said. He’s collected nearly 700 vintage muskrat traps, including one he bought for $850 at an auction because it once belonged to his grandfather.

T

he Outdoor Show traces its origins to 1936, when several trappers got to boasting about their skinning prowess at the farmers’ and watermen’s winter picnic. A challenge ensued, and two years later, it spawned the first Outdoor Show, held at the State Theater in Cambridge. History records that George North of Griffith’s Neck won the show’s inaugural skinning championship. The “national” part was added in the 1950s, when Dorchester’s Republican Congressman challenged a Democratic colleague from Cameron Parish in southwest Louisiana to see whose marshes produced the top muskrat skinner. To be clear, the politicians weren’t offering to get their own hands bloody. Among the men, Cajuns have won five championships, and a Pennsylvanian reigned once. Otherwise, it’s pretty much been Abbotts—Dorchester’s

rat-skinning dynasty—overthrown periodically by an Insley or a Robbins. To this day, Cameron Parish representatives are honored Outdoor Show guests, a hospitality they return by welcoming a Dorchester delegation to Cameron’s Fur and Wildlife Festival every January. The first women’s muskratskinning competition was held in 1940, won by one Willie Wallace Keene. More recently, top skinners have included seven-time winner Helen Foxwell (Elihu Abbott’s niece) and five-time champions Bonnie Abbott, Cindy Paul and Rhonda (Top Chef) Aaron, Marcus’s sister. The ladies are so skilled that some have floated the notion the championship ought to be co-ed. While skinning is taken seriously (deadly so for the muskrats), the Outdoor Show mostly means burning off cabin fever and celebrating what one Eastern Shore clothing company has successfully branded “Brackish Life.” Everywhere I roamed, it seemed, teen fashion favored camo wear and “Brackish” apparel. The show offers much pageantry, but not what you’d call pomp. Dorchester doesn’t do la-di-da. The Miss Outdoors Pageant, introduced in 1954, measures the talents, congeniality, glamour and self-assuredness of high school teens, without parading them in swimsuits. On the other hand, the “womanless” Miss Nature Girl Pageant, a companion fundraiser inaugurated in 2018, showcased (how to put this?) less-flatteringly curvaceous guys, who voluntarily cross-dressed in swimwear and evening gowns. The show flouts gender boundaries in

Bath ’Rats: A Cajun’s Story When it comes to muskrats, Louisiana’s Cameron Parish is Dorchester’s sister skinning capital. Its Fur and Wildlife Festival celebrates familiar traditions: crabbing, oystering, fishing, hunting and skinning. Per custom, Cameron’s top skinners are invited to compete in the National Outdoor Show’s World Championship. Their muskrats often accompany them. Jay Miller won the men’s world championship four times in the 1970s, more than any other Louisianan before or since. He and Dorchester’s Wylie Abbott Sr. battled for skinning supremacy in those days, when muskrats were plentiful in the bayous and Miller trapped as many as 500 a day, selling their meat and fur. He preferred the tender-skinned females in competition. Many joined him, alive in cages, on his flights to Maryland. “I used to bring thirty or forty of them,” he said by phone from his home in Lake Charles. It was a matter of pelt quality control. “If I used [Maryland muskrats] I didn’t know what I was getting.” To be most supple, muskrats must meet their maker as near to competition time as possible. They couldn’t bring their bayous, so the Cajuns used the best precompetition habitat at hand—their hotel bathtubs. The housekeeping staff was none too excited about finding them swimming around in the tub. Miller is retired now, but he still holds one of the Outdoor Show’s skinning records: five muskrats in 50 seconds. He said his personal-but-unofficial best for one muskrat is seven seconds. He recalled one contest in which he skinned his five-rat quota, washed his hands backstage and returned to see his closest competitor finishing his first muskrat. “I was smokin’ that day.” His secret? “Wylie was right,” he said of old rival and friend, the late Wylie Abbott Sr. “Tonging for oysters. It gives you the hand strength to finish that last rat.” —M.L.

other ways. In 2004, Miss Outdoors contestant Tiffany Brittingham became the first to skin a muskrat as her talent. Featured in Amy Nicholson’s 2005 documentary, Muskrat Lovely, Brittingham’s performance was a hit, especially among the audience’s young males. The cooking contest carries its own glory. We judged entries in two preparation categories: traditional (Miss Nellie’s forte) and specialty (daughter Rhonda’s), a catch-all that has produced in recent years muskrat chili, curry, empanadas, enchiladas, pizza, pot pie and a city journalist’s concoction called “Bacon Rat,” a rodent-shaped mound of muskrat-and-bacon sausage covered in bacon strips. Artfully placed in a “swamp” of bourbon-infused sauce, it took third prize that year. In addition to taste and creativity, we were instructed to assess each anonymously submitted entry’s presentation and recipe clarity. The rich ThreeBean Sweet Bourbon Muskrat Chili lost points for failing to note quantities and preparation instructions. The Spanish-style Son of a Gun Muskrat Stew tickled my fancy with its garnishes (one jumbo jalapeno, one toy muskrat). The taste and textures of the gingery Asian Muskrat with Snow Peas wowed us all, while the traditional category was a highly nuanced call between both entries in which I was the minority vote. As Windsor tallied the scores, a small crowd gathered to hear the results and to polish off dishes we judges merely nibbled. In some good-natured culinary hazing, the county sheriff’s office dispatched one of its young officers to get his first taste of muskrat. Windsor announced the winners: Rhonda Aaron swept the top three specialty cooking awards, while Cindy Cook edged out Nellie Flowers in the traditional category. Afterwards, Aaron told me that when she grew up, there were no grocery stores nearby, so her family ate game—muskrat, goose, venison, duck—at least five days a week, plus occasional delicacies like snapping turtle potpie. Today, when she isn’t experimenting with muskrat recipes, she likes to “pot it down”—cook it with potatoes and onions, like pot roast, using pork or other fat

meat for added flavor. I met Miss Nellie, too, who—80 years earlier—attended the first Outdoor Show and sold pelts to fur traders there. “We got fifty cents for each muskrat,” quarters she scooped up quickly, she told me, before anyone “could save them for me.” There are two Buddys synonymous with the Outdoor Show; Buddy Oberender, its co-chairman, and Buddy Foxwell, the voluble emcee of Saturday night’s big finale. As the crowd gathered—parents toting their kids’ pageant trophies, teen boys clomping by in work boots, little girls sporting pink and purple dresses—Zac Brown sang on the gym’s PA system: “You know I like my chicken fried / Cold beer on a Friday night / A pair of jeans that fit just right …” Foxwell introduced pageant royalty: LeCompte, wearing a floor-length, royal-blue gown, escorted by her court, and Miss Cameron Parish, Maeleigh Conner, in an aubergine-colored evening gown and what seemed like a foot-high tiara, accompanied by her cousins, best friend, mother and grandmother, plus an official photographer. They strolled the catwalk. The lights dimmed. Then a melee ensued, otherwise known as The Bead Toss. “You don’t want to be near the stage,” Foxwell warned me. I didn’t listen. Shiny, sometimes chunky, strands of Mardi Gras beads, tossed by the royals, arced over—and occasionally bounced off—my head as spectators lunged for them. The bauble scrum continued until the flingers were finally beadless, which took a while. Next came the auction, a spirited affair led by Foxwell, an auctioneer by trade. Antique eel pots, a sterling Annie Oakley rifle necklace, a six-pack charter fishing trip and a pig roast for 50 all elicited three-digit bids, followed by higher offers for chainsaw sculptures by cooking judge Marty Long. (Hand-trucked to the stage, his scary-big muskrat sold for $1,000.) In a rousing bidding war, Foxwell coaxed the price for the coveted Outdoor Show teddy bear— hand-made of muskrat pelts from the previous year’s skinning contest—to a record-smashing $2,400. With apologies to the Canadian Arctic’s Muskrat Jamboree, nobody seems poised to challenge the Outdoor Show’s grand claim to muskrat skinning’s global championship. Eating these creatures may seem brave, but it doesn’t compare to watching them speed-flayed, which

is a tooth-and-claw sport. There was definitely blood (most of it muskrat) and raw carcasses and a funky odor—somewhere between marsh muck and startled skunk—that gradually permeated the gym. There was obvious prowess, too, displayed for an all-ages audience who cheered family and friends. “C’mon, Elihu, pull that rat!” they exhorted a youngster in glasses. “Keep it [the pelt] clean, Maddie!” they urged a junior women’s contestant. Dakota Flowers bested four other Abbott extended-family members—most wearing “Abbott Strong” T-shirts—to take the women’s championship, skinning five rats in just over two minutes. Her time topped the eventual men’s champion, T.J. Abbott, by seven seconds. Marcus Flowers finished fourth. Sometime after midnight, the skinners received their gleaming trophies. As long as Ondatra zibethicus roams the marshes, South Dorchesterans will use muskrats to take each other’s measure— although perhaps not on every stage. Next year, a world champion muskrat skinner will be named, but a sign near the cooking judges’ enclosure read: “NEW in 2019: VENISON Cooking Contest (Muskrat Will Return in a Few Years.)” I suspect Miss Nellie and Rhonda will still hold their own. h The National Outdoor Show will be held February 22 & 23 at South Dorchester School, 3485 Golden Hill Rd., Church Creek, Md; national outdoorshow.org.

Five Generations of Boat Sales & Service from Baltimore to Grasonville and Annapolis.

JAN FEB 19 Ches Whalertowne.indd 50

12/19/18 2:05 PM


hesapeake Whalertowne, now managed by the fourth generation of its founding family, is Boston Whaler’s largest independent dealer and the second oldest in continuous operation. No surprise that a new customer at this fall’s United States Powerboat Show remarked, “We’ve just moved to Annapolis and found we’ve moved to Whalertowne.” Well, that remark may be a little bit hyperbolic. But the dozens of Whalers on boat lifts along rivers like the Severn, Magothy, and Wye confirm that Whalertowne’s Boulay family has been doing it right for years and years. Chesapeake Whalertowne’s success has more to do with long-term willingness to be an integral part of the community. “Become a local; it’ll pay in ways you’ll never foresee,” says sales manager Rick Boulay Jr. at the Grasonville headquarters. The business started with a local—Bill Kammerer, who had grown up around Miller’s Island, fishing, boating with his family, and competing in 19-foot Chris-Craft racing runabouts. He began selling that legendary brand at his St. Paul Street garage in Baltimore in 1937 before opening a boatyard and marine railway at the foot of Locke Insulator Drive on the Patapsco, servicing Chris-Craft inboard and Gale outboard engines. Kammerer’s oldest daughter, Dottie, married Joe Boulay, a Korean War veteran who had been working for General Motors and Gladding Chevrolet. The young couple took the reins of the company and incorporated it as Baltimore Chris-Craft Sales in 1962. Soon they built it into the parts distributor for five states, and Dottie began selling boating accessories from Dottie’s Nautical Duffle Bag. In 1965, they moved the business across the Patapsco to Brooklyn Park to avoid the hard freezes that paralyzed the marina in severe winters. They began selling Mercury outboards and a line of fiberglass runabouts. The Whaler era began in 1973 when a neighbor who had grown up around the boats in New England asked Joe if he could sell him one. It turned out that he could (a 17 Montauk with a 65-hp Mercury), and Baltimore Chris-Craft became the only Whaler dealer in the region that also sold Mercury engines. Joe quickly became a fan of the boat brand and decided that he should stock the full line. Rick, who was in high school then, recalls him saying, “You can’t sell what you don’t have.” Other Boston Whaler dealers balked at selling the larger Whaler Outrage models that were coming out, but Baltimore Chris-Craft had them all, including the Harpoon and SuperCat sailboats, which Whaler developed after the early ’70s gas crisis. The “part-time” Whaler dealers dropped out, and soon, Baltimore Chris-Craft was Maryland’s primary Boston Whaler dealer.

booth while Dottie Boulay entertains nautical accessories customers at an early Baltimore Boat Show.

Joe and Dottie Boulay felt strongly that sales and service go together, from Chris-Craft engines and parts to boats and outboards. “Our customers are passionate about their boats and the Chesapeake waters where they run them,” Rick recalled his father saying. “Even during a downturn, people will continue boating, fixing what they still own, so service will carry a dealership through the hard times.” “Sales and service complement each other,” he continued. Our customer base won’t walk away. I spend time in the shop every day. It’s part of our backbone.” (Full disclosure: This writer has been one of those customers since 1974.) In 1963, Joe hired Richard Jerns, a savvy young charterboat skipper, to work in the shop. Jerns took advantage of Mercury’s training programs, becoming a certified master mechanic and then service manager. With the Boulay family’s encouragement and support, he kept learning through the revolutions in outboard technology and built an educated, experienced team in the shop before retiring in 2016. The shop continues today under Nick Crispino, Steve Taylor, and other techs who continue to operate by Jern’s service motto, “Ours don’t come back on Monday.” Joe and Dottie retired in 1982, handing the reins to Rick and his wife, Laura. They were fresh out of college, but Rick had been involved in the business since high school. “I was fortunate to have focus from the start,” he remarked. “Focus and strategic thinking are key. We have always managed conservatively, playing the long game, but I learned early to take thoughtful risks, to be ready to move when opportunity presents itself.” One example was bidding on commercial sales to government first responders. Rick worked on hull development with Whaler’s commercial division in the ‘80s and even named the Alert series. Results included Annapolis’ first outboard fireboat, the 25-foot Stainless Steele, and several others for Northern Virginia’s Fairfax County. He also took on Yamaha outboards when they became available in the United States in 1984, giving Whaler customers a choice of power. But Rick’s primary focus all along has been standing by his word, delivering on it, and serving his people. Also in 1982, Rick hired schoolmate Bart Hiltabidle to help with boat shows, especially because he had grown up sailing with his family in Annapolis. With his low-key, friendly approach to sales and service, Hiltabidle has been a versatile team member ever since, spending most of his time over the past twenty-five years in a satellite sales office in the

Eastport section of his home town. He didn’t have to become a local because he is one, born and raised a couple of blocks from his new office on the downtown Annapolis waterfront. “I came along the same month (May) and year (1958) as Boston Whaler,” he chuckled the last time we talked. “If people want to buy boats from us, they will, eventually,” he says. “We’re in it for the long term. I like to see the smiles on their faces when I deliver a new boat, and we often become friends after the sale. If they’re happy, they’ll stay with us. I like to say that I wash boats for a living, and every once in a while, I sell one.” Rick Sr. and Laura, meanwhile, gradually built the dealership into a powerhouse. It accelerated especially after Brunswick Corporation, which had bought Mercury Marine in 1961, acquired Boston Whaler in 1996. In 2000, the Boulays changed their company’s name to Chesapeake Whalertowne to more clearly reflect their commitment to the brand “We’re going all in,” is how Laura put it. Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Park location was becoming cramped for space. In the spring of 2005, they found the solution across the Bay Bridge in Grasonville, which offered much more room for display of new models and storage of customers’ boats. It is still close enough to serve customers in the Baltimore/Annapolis/Washington area while becoming much more convenient to customers on the middle and upper Eastern Shore. Late that summer, they also achieved Whaler Master Dealer status, an elite rank that reflects an ongoing commitment to customer service and satisfaction that leads to long-term relationships.

The Boulays, Jake, Rick Sr. and Rick Jr., at their Grasonville facility.

Rick Jr. summarizes Whalertowne’s mission succinctly: “Do one thing well.” After college, he wrestled with the decision whether to join the family firm and spent several successful years at an elite Baltimore human resources firm before coming to Whalertowne in the summer of 2006. “This is what I want to do,” he says, “But I had to make sure.” In Grasonville, he’s joined by his younger brother, Jake. They play active roles in all aspects of the business, from sales, service, and staffing to the increasingly complex challenge of transporting ever-larger Whalers to and from customers. Handling boats from the multi-engine 320 Vantage (twins) through the new 350 Realm (triples) to the 420 Outrage (quads) requires trucks, trailers, licenses, and insurance that would make Bill Kammerer roll his eyes in wonder. But the team has risen to the challenge. Whalertowne’s most recent test came to the satellite sales office, when its landlord, the Annapolis Yacht Club, decided to build a large new sailing center on the site. Long story short: the Boulays and Bart made lemons out of lemonade, jumping at the opportunity to re-locate on the downtown waterfront at 110 Compromise Street, the former home of Fawcett Boat Supplies. Unlike other maritime businesses that have left downtown, Whalertowne leapt right in. “We had to go somewhere,” said Rick Jr. “The building gives us great visibility. We’re right in the mix of things. This was a matter of sensing opportunity and taking it.” h

For the 1984 Bay Bridge Boat Show at Sandy Point State Park, Joe Boulay Sr., Bart Hiltibidle and Rick Boulay Sr. sawed a whaler into three pieces to prove its unique unsinkability.

id-morning at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, and the apparent wind whipping through the 26-foot RIB skimming across the surface is anything but balmy. It’s January, and the people on board are kitted up like skiers with goggles, balaclavas, gloves and multiple layers of fleece and foul-weather gear.

Barely half a mile out from the bridge at Lynnhaven Inlet, they spot what they’re seeking, as mist spouts into the crisp blue sky. Beneath, the glistening grey massifs of the whales’ backs—the eponymous humpback— part the water with barely a ripple. The RIB, from the Virginia Beach firm HDR, approaches slowly and the researchers on board begin their work, noting the position, the time, and what the whales are doing. They photograph

each whale and compare backs and tails to enlarged images in a binder—a visual catalogue that can help them identify whether this is a new individual or one the team has identified and tagged before. If it’s a new whale, the team carefully maneuvers the RIB alongside and shoots a small titanium dart with a satellite tag attached through the cartilage at the dorsal fin, and for the next several weeks, until the tag falls

off, they will track the whale’s movements. They back away, finish making their notes, and simply watch as the whales, majestic as silence, part the cold, clear water of the morning, their exhalations heavy in the still air. Hopefully, this will be the last they see of these whales, until another tagging trip this year, or maybe sometime next winter. But lately, that’s not been the case.

Scientists carefully maneuver to fire a small titanium dart with a satellite tag attached into the dorsal fin in order to tack the whale’s movements.

Administration (NOAA) Fisheries Service to declare an unusual mortality event, or UME, from Maine to Florida. In the past three years, ship strikes have killed humpbacks along the East Coast over six times more than the 16-year average, NOAA says. “That’s a pretty staggering number,” says Alexander Costidis, the Stranding Response Coordinator for the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center and one of a very few people in the country with the experience and permission to conduct whale necropsies. The UME, declared when a species is suddenly dying more than expected, is essentially an all-handson-deck for scientists to get a better handle on what’s happening. The investigative workgroup developed as a result of the UME includes the

At least 10 humpbacks were

struck by ships from 2016-2017 on the East Coast, more than

6 times the average.

Virginia Aquarium, where Susan Barco, Research Coordinator and Senior Scientist, and her colleague Mark Swingle, Director of Research and Conservation, have been studying whales in and near the Chesapeake for 30 years. “Mark and I both grew up here, and neither one of us remember ever hearing about whales in the area,” Barco says. “The Bay has recovered a little bit, and humpbacks have been recovering, so our thought is that it’s probably either an increase in population or a shift in the prey base, or a combination of those and other factors.” But Barco says that scientifically, so far, there’s no smoking gun other than what is circumstantially obvious: “We have a lot of ships in this area and have had for a long time. I can’t back it up scientifically, but circumstantially it certainly makes sense if there are more whales and more ships there will be more interactions. And whenever a ship and a whale interact, it’s not good for the whale.” Humpback whales are found throughout the world’s oceans, with 14 distinct populations. They can live up to 80 or 90 years, reaching sexual maturity between four and 10 years, and females produce one calf every two to three years. Some populations are still endangered or threatened, while others have rebounded significantly since 1985, when commercial whale hunting was banned. Before that moratorium, humpbacks were hunted to near extinction, with some populations cut by 95 percent. NOAA Fisheries estimates based on a survey from the mid 1990s indicate that 10,400 to 10,752 humpbacks now live in the North Atlantic. All humpbacks are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act, but the whales that we see in the Chesapeake, which are part of what’s called the West Indies population, are no longer considered at risk. They

More and more often, young humpback whales who are feeding in the waters near and in the lower Chesapeake during the winter and early spring are washing ashore along its beaches, many of them the victims of ship strikes. February of 2017 was a particularly grim period, as three humpbacks washed ashore within 10 days, one with the open slashes of propeller wounds on its head and body, the other two with similar injuries. In the Chesapeake, the whales are running the gauntlet of Hampton Roads, home of the sixth-busiest container shipping port in the U.S. and the world’s largest Navy base at Naval Station Norfolk. But the increase in humpback whale deaths on the entire East Coast has prompted the National Oceanic and Atmospheric

breed and give birth in late winter and early spring on the Silver Banks, a broad area north of the Dominican Republic. In summer, they migrate north primarily to the Gulf of Maine, although some have been identified from whales who feed in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and off Newfoundland, Barco says. Most of the whales that are turning up dead in the Chesapeake are juveniles, who evidently are spending more time here as youngsters after weaning from their mothers. “We could be seeing some animals that are as young as a year old,” Barco says. “Most are a little older. We think they are mostly eating schooling fish, which can be bay anchovies, croaker, menhaden. We think menhaden is one of the primary prey, but in stranded animals we’ve seen some of those other species in their GI tract.” Since the early 1990s, Barco and her colleagues at the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center have been conducting the longest survey of whales off Virginia and the mid-Atlantic, developing and curating the Mid-Atlantic Humpback Whale Catalog, a regional catalog of highquality humpback identification images and sighting data.

“We started getting sightings of whales very close to shore in the early 1990s and started documenting them mostly from shore from 1990 to 1992,” Barco says. “That also coincided with us getting strandings in the area. My first stranding was in 1990, and I think we had two to three that year. So, the sightings and strandings started at the same time.” A paper published in 2002 in the Journal of Cetacean Research and Management, of which Barco was lead author, notes that between 1990 and 2000, there were 52 reported humpback whale deaths in the mid-Atlantic states (New Jersey through North Carolina). Of these, 13 were in Virginia, 81.2 percent of them were first-year whales, 14.6 immature, and only 4.2 percent were mature whales. “Of these, the cause of death could not be determined for 39 (75%),” the paper says. “For the remaining 13, 11 were identified as being due to entanglements in fishing gear or collisions with vessels, whereas two showed no signs of human-induced mortality.” While Barco’s research found 52 humpback deaths over 10 years in the mid-Atlantic states, NOAA Fisheries has since documented 39 deaths in the

same states over just the past three years. In the Chesapeake, 13 whales were killed in Virginia in the ten years between 1990 and 2000, while 14 were reported in the three winter field seasons between 2016 through 2018. The NOAA Fisheries UME for humpbacks began on Jan. 15, 2016, when a dead humpback whale was reported off Virginia Beach. (There are also current UMEs for minke and right whales on the East Coast, although the majority of these whales are dying in New England). Since January 2016, NOAA Fisheries has documented 84 dead humpbacks in the UME as of Sept. 30, 2018. The highest numbers of deaths were off New York, with 17, and Massachusetts and Virginia, which tallied 14 each. Of the latter two, the majority of whales died in 2017, with each state reporting seven deaths in that year. Many of the stranded carcasses couldn’t be retrieved for examination, but partial or full necropsies were performed in 2016 and 2017 on 20 of the dead whales, and of those, half showed evidence of collisions with a vessel, far more than expected. “Of the 20 cases examined through April [2017], 10 cases had evidence of blunt force trauma or

pre-mortem propeller wounds indicative of vessel strike, which is over six times more than the 16-year average of 1.5 whales showing signs of vessel strike in this region,” states the NOAA Fisheries FAQ. Complementing the work of the Virginia Aquarium is the US Navy, whose Mid-Atlantic Humpback Whale Monitoring project, led by HDR, is further identifying individual humpbacks and using satellite tagging to better understand their movements. Begun in January 2015, the study, as of October 2018, had compiled a catalog of 119 individual humpback whales. In December 2015, HDR’s scientists began using small satellite transmitters to track the whales for several weeks and map their movements in and near the shipping channels and several Navy training areas just offshore. What they’re finding is that the whales spend a great deal of time in the deeper waters of the shipping channels, presumably feeding on the prey drawn there. “A high percentage of our animals that have been satellite-tagged are spending a considerable amount of time in shipping lanes, about 50 percent of their time for some individuals and

which I think has been a surprising find for us all.” According to an August 2017 project report, 57.7 percent of tagged animals during the 2016/17 field season were tracked west of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. “This was a large increase when compared to the 2015/2016 field season where only 22.2 percent had locations west of the CBBT.” The 2017/18 season was a bit of an anomaly, with the whales spending more time offshore and fewer coming into the Bay. Scientists believe this was due to the colder water temperatures of last winter driving the whales’ prey further offshore, taking the whales with them. “When zooming in on the primary study area at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay using tag data collected from all field seasons, the importance of this area to humpbacks whales (and fin whales) is apparent,” HDR’s 2018 report says. “Nearly a quarter (2,570 of 10,517) of all filtered tag locations were inside shipping channels, and approximately eight percent (808/10,517) of locations were inside the W-50 MINEX zone [a Navy training area just offshore of the Capes].” During the 2016/17 field season, of 172 total large whale sightings, “87 (50.6 percent) occurred in the shipping lanes (all humpback whales).” Similar to Barco’s findings, the majority are young—76.3 percent of those in the 2016/17 field season were categorized as juveniles. “Interactions with vessels, both large and small, are a significant cause for concern for both humpback and endangered fin whales in the study area,” HDR’s report says. “During the 2015/16 season, three individual humpback whales were observed with boat injuries … ranging from non-life threatening to likely fatal injuries. During the 2016/2017 field season, three humpback whales were killed in a 10-day period, all with evidence of vessel interactions that likely led to their deaths. A fourth whale was observed

with severe injuries from a propeller. The 2017/2018 field season also started off with the death of a known humpback whale.” So, what can be done? According to NOAA Fisheries, speed restrictions imposed on ships to protect right whales, including those off of the Chesapeake, can benefit other whales. From November through April, vessels over 65 feet must travel 10 knots or less in these areas. But the zone at the Chesapeake starts at the line between the Capes and then arcs offshore, so that the shipping channels inside the Bay aren’t restricted. If that zone could be extended further into the Bay, Aschettino says, it would benefit the whales. “We have seen ships that are abiding by that speed restriction through the Bridge-Tunnel, and then as soon as they’re through there they pick up speed. And we know whales are feeding there,” she says. “It’s been shown in other areas that oftentimes the shipping companies are willing to cooperate, but it is a big ask for them to slow down. Time is money, and all of that. So, we’re hoping to put together this full data set and have some good motivation for them to participate and help out. But ultimately it’s going to be the regulators who would want to change and enforce it.” Not only is slowing down anathema to tightly scheduled shipping operations, requiring ships to slow down too much in constricted areas like around the Bridge-Tunnel can be dangerous. “Large vessels need to maintain some speed to steer, and when you put them in narrow waters where there are bridges and tunnels and you try to slow them down, there are problems,” Costidis says. The geography of the Bay’s shipping channels is also problematic, since they are relatively narrow, funneling the ships, the fish the whales want to eat, and the whales into the same space.

“Our channels are not particularly deep, and in some cases with these larger ships that are quite full, there may be very little distance between the bottom of the ship and the channel, so there’s no deepwater refuge for these animals at all,” Barco says. Also, while it may seem that a whale should hear a ship bearing down on it, the quietest area of a ship is right in front of it, and whales that are feeding are highly preoccupied already. “When they’re feeding and having sex you can pretty much do anything to them and they don’t respond,” Barco says. “Normally when they’re swimming they would see vessel noise as a threat, but when they are feeding they probably don’t.” This season, HDR’s scientists are continuing their work identifying and tagging humpbacks in the Bay and just offshore, adding a new collaboration with Duke University. Duke scientists will be using a different tag which can provide data about whales’ movements underwater, how deep they are going, and even acoustic information, Aschettino says. For instance, if a whale is submerged and a ship is approaching, the tags should be able to identify the sounds of the whale and the ship and determine whether and how the whale reacts by changing position or orientation. Though these whales are not considered endangered, Aschettino believes that as people become more educated about the humpbacks in and near the Chesapeake they will care more about them. “Whales in general are charismatic megafauna,” she says. “People appreciate and enjoy them, they are such a special species. So, I think there is motivation, and the public would be interested in seeing them safer.” h Wendy Mitman Clarke is an awardwinning writer, author, poet and a CBM editor-at-large.

The author’s second Chessie, Merle, blends in and is ready to go.

The Chesapeake Dog Inside the Chessie Relationship story and photos by Captain Chris D. Dollar

I

didn’t mean to laugh out loud when my editor insisted, “Well, you know Chesapeakes so you’re the guy to write about them.” I chuckled because I wondered if anyone truly knows what goes on inside the head of a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. I’ve been a hunting partner to two Chessies over the past twenty years—the first, a crazy-curly brown male named Huckleberry and my current dog, ten-yearold Merle who sports a dead-grass blonde coat. They could not be any different in personality. Huck was as sweet as pie, and Merle, well, the fact he’s named for Merle Haggard and Merle Watson, dual personalities so to speak, tells you all you need to know. Both dogs shared unparalleled drive and loyalty, and that’s what makes a Chessie a Chessie.

Once, after a day’s hunting in the lower Bay’s marshes, an old salt eyed Merle in the pickup bed, and remarked, “Best way to train a Chesapeake is with a two-by-four.” I wanted so badly to retort that maybe he’s the one in need of a wood shampoo. Instead, I politely replied that that tactic is outdated, and it doesn’t really work. In my experience, hunting with a Chessie, is all about winning the contest of wills and effective negotiation. The story of how the breed came to the Chesapeake is a good one, a truly American tale replete with a sea rescue, laced with mythology and meandering life paths leading to what is arguably the hardest working water gun dog. The breed’s lineage is undoubtedly linked to Newfoundland canines. Their love of water attests to that. Chessies can be traced back to 1807 when two puppies were rescued by the crew of the Baltimore-based sailing vessel Canton that came upon a British brig bound for Liverpool foundering off Newfoundland. The female was named for the vessel, and reportedly was given to Dr. James Stuart of Sparrows Point. The reddish male came to be called Sailor and was taken by John Mercer of West River, Maryland. After that, as many American myths do, things get a bit colorful and slightly murky. Once settled in Maryland, it’s unclear if the pair was bred with each other or other hunting breeds. One variation has Sailor and Canton mated with English water poodles; another to yellow and tan coonhounds, and a third even supposes they were crossbred with otterhounds, or possibly flat- and curly-coated retrievers. Some say the more likely scenario is they were paired with canines native to the Bay region. Whatever the truth, it is undeniable this mingling of dog stocks produced an exceptional retrieving dog. What is also certain is that, beginning in the mid-1800s,

end of the 19th century, waterfowl hunting for sport was taking hold in earnest along the Atlantic seaboard and inland to the Midwest, and as it did, gunners appreciated the Chessies’ exceptional skills, stamina and willingness to retrieve ducks and geese

in the most frigid of waters without fail. Here’s what renowned dog trainer and field judge Bernard Waters wrote in his 1895 treatise on training retrievers— “The Chesapeake Bay dog is remarkably intelligent and physically of extraordinary bone and muscle, and they are said to be indefatigable in work, and persistent in fetching to bag the most difficult birds.” C. John Sullivan, Jr., in his book, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Decoys & Long Guns: Tales of Carroll’s Island Ducking Club, notes the dogs became famous for their drive to “retrieve fowl, loyalty and intelligence. That independent streak is a hallmark of the breed.” I’ve hunted the same area Sullivan, Jr. writes of, as a guest of Jim and Kevin Colbeck. On Saltpeter Creek, we hunted over Kevin’s stalwart Chessie, Tarman, who did his ancesters proud when he smashed through one-inch thick ice to

retrieve a felled bird. It was a phenomenal experience, watching the dog’s unrelenting energy and drive. To him, however, it was just another day at the office. I’ll add that anyone considering getting a Chesapeake and not hunting is risking a bad experience and doing a disservice to himself and the dog. These dogs need to hunt. The winter of 2012-13 was the first time in 12 years that I hunted waterfowl without Huck. He’d passed away in May. Of all the adventures we shared, two come to mind. The first happened in January 2003, as a northwest wind roared down Tangier Sound, pummeling the waters into an angry froth. My young Chessie and I took refuge in the lee of a marsh atoll in the Cedar Island Wildlife Management Area in Somerset County. We weathered the gale, tucked up against the cordgrass like egrets. Like us, the ducks sought

respite from the blow, and a trio of widgeons lit to our decoy spread. I shot three times, one bird fell and was immediately carried away by the wind and waves toward Saxis Island. Ever eager to please, and before I could command him not to break, Huck dove into the icy water and swam for the bird. Sensing the danger, the duck found new life and dove as Huck closed the gap. Huck put his head underwater to scan each time the duck dove. A very unsettling scene unfolded as I watched, shore-bound and on the verge of panic. As this rough-water wack-a-mole played out for what seemed like an hour, I sprinted for the skiff hidden among the cordgrass. I shoved the boat into water deep enough to run the engine and spun around to witness the duck popping up a final time and into Huck’s waiting maw. I met him half-way out as he worked his way to shore. Exhausted,

we sat for a long spell on the sod bank. I rubbed the nape of his neck, grateful he was safe, and heaped praise upon him for his determination. The dog gave me a look that could have said, “No sweat, buddy, I had it under control.” The second tale occurred while camping along a trout stream in the Shenandoah Valley. A game warden emerged from the verdant spring foliage, startling us. Huck barked, as dogs have done for thousands of years to alert their companions of someone or something approaching camp. Without announcing himself, the officer drew his service revolver, pointed it at us, and screeched, “Get your dog under control!” With one hand up, I cautiously stepped in front of the dog, grabbed Huck’s collar with the other hand while imploring the young man with the gun to “go easy.” The dog slid beside me, not aggressively but also

holding his ground. My protector. I repeated as calmly as I could, “Go easy. Don’t shoot.” The surreal standoff lasted all of 20 seconds, but time stood still. When things calmed down, I showed the officer my license and camping permit. True to his nature, Huck had forgotten about the tense standoff, and even tried to extend a “no hard feelings, fella. Like you, I’m just doing my job” via the famous Chessie smile and otter-like tail-wag. The overzealous lawman ignored Huck’s attempt at a handshake, wrote me up on some specious citation, and moved off. In doing so he cemented the facts that he was no dog man, and he was a shaky wildlife officer. A year later, the day came when I watched him struggle to turn around in the sticky mud while searching for a downed pintail. I knew then it was time to retire him. As a duck dog, he was above average and dependable. As a friend and companion his worth remains incalculable. He loved me unconditionally and loved to be with me. I feel the same about him. One of the universal injustices is the woefully short lifespan of dogs. They simply aren’t with us as long as they should be. That’s especially true of Chessies. But I’m biased. In my home office hangs a tattered Peanuts comic strip in which Linus and Charlie Brown are sitting on a dock, looking up at the stars and contemplating the universe. Linus paraphrases Carl Sagan’s perspective of the immensity of our solar system, to which Charlie Brown simply responds, “I miss my dog.”  Captain Chris Dollar is a professional fishing guide, tackle shop owner, all-around Chesapeake outdoorsman and writer with more than 25 years experience in avoiding office work.

You, Me and the ICW Uncle Albert’s cold, Sidney Lanier’s poem, and the short life of a bottle of malt vinegar. story and photos by Jody Argo Schroath

DAY 11

I

am heading down the Cape Fear River as I write this. Well, in fact, I am heading down the Cape Fear River thinking this in my head. I will actually write it down a little later, after I’m tied to the dock in Southport, NC. Of course, by then it might come out a different story entirely. We have no way of knowing really. Not that it matters. There are a lot of ways of saying the same thing. The Cape Fear is a big, wide industrial river with a kick-in-the-pants current. The Intracoastal Waterway—that is, the inside route between Norfolk and Key West—enters the Cape Fear from behind the beaches, about mid-way between Wilmington and the sea, and then takes a sharp right turn a couple of miles before the river hits the breakers. On the Cape Fear, you want to go with the current, which can run four to five knots, and

you want to keep a sharp lookout for fastmoving car ferries, which crisscross the channel, and big ships, which, happily, stay between the lines. It is a beautiful, sunny, nearly warm day in late October, and the current is neither pushing nor pulling Moment of Zen, so we’re working downriver at 6.5 knots. It is a good day because the sun is out and because I saw the first dolphins of the trip early this morning where Topsail Inlet meets the ICW. They were having a fine time gobbling up great messes of fish that had been pushed inside by the flooding tide. “Flood” is a loaded word to use in these parts, where everything for miles and miles around was submerged earlier this fall after Hurricane Florence dumped unheard of amounts of water on the Carolinas and the rivers rose and rose, including the Cape Fear The quiet charm of a Cane Patch Creek anchorage just south of Hell Gate between Savannah and the sea islands.

River, which carried a lot of hog-wallow and ash-pit pollution into the Atlantic to join all those plastic cups circling the gyres. But today the water is back in its banks and clear of storm litter. Broken docks and scattered roof shingles are the only remaining evidence of the catastrophe on this part of the trip, though things may be worse in South Carolina, which comes tomorrow. I’ll have plenty of time to look. At 6.5 knots, nothing passes very quickly. Today is really the first nice day of the trip since I left Annapolis eleven days ago. My enjoyment of the ICW is in direct proportion to the quality of the weather, and so far, the quality has not been good. It has been cold, windy or rainy and sometimes all three at once. Contributing to my gloom was the incident where my brand-new port engine cut out on me as I came through Norfolk. Happily, I have two, and a rainy windy day at the dock at Top Rack in Chesapeake, Va. spent changing and then bleeding the fuel filters took care of that setback. Then it was just cold and windy. So far on my trip, partly because I have been grumpy over the weather, I have not stopped at any of the following cruisers’ favorites—Norfolk, Portsmouth, Belhaven, Oriental and Beaufort. I didn’t even stop at Coinjock for the cruisers’ traditional prime-rib dinner. To be fair, I have stopped at all of those places on many occasions, and leftover prime-rib has several times sustained me deep into North Carolina. On the way down the Chesapeake, I also did not stop in cruisers’ favorites Solomons or Deltaville, but instead found a nearly perfect

storm-hole type anchorage in Lawrence Cove, which is up Dividing Creek on the Bay side of the Northern Neck. And later, I spent a crystalclear Milky Way night at anchor off Broad Creek, just before Albemarle Sound. The next morning, however, there was another little incident when three hell-bent-forleather powerboats rocketed by me like greyhounds after a rabbit on a stick in a narrow stretch and rocked Zen so violently that it de-capped a bottle of malt vinegar in the cupboard, which then dripped onto the counter and pooled on the galley floor. It could have been the honey or the olive oil, so all-in-all, not so bad. Besides, the boat smelled like tossed salad for a while. Happily, most boats on the ICW perform a two-step not found on Dancing With the Stars called the “slow pass.” It works this way: First, the faster boat calls the slower boat and offers to slow down, thereby greatly diminishing its wake and not endangering the slower boat’s condiments. Second, the slower boat says, “Thanks,” and pulls back to a near stop so the faster boat, now going slowly, can pass in a short time and be back on its way. It’s a lovely and civilized system that works without being made into law or written in books. Nearly all boats on the ICW subscribe to it. In southern Florida the system breaks down because there the ICW is busy with a lot of non-ICW boaters who have not heard of, or do not give a fig for, the slow pass courtesy. The only drawback is that from late October to early November, which it happens to be, there are so many southbound boats on the

waterway that by the time you come to a dead stop for 25 very nice slowed-down powerboats in one day, your rate of forward progress is somewhere in the three-knot range. But on the up side, your mustard and pickles are safe. Really, though, it’s a small miracle of cooperation, and it makes you feel better about the world and its future. Well here’s Southport, so I need to pay attention.

DAY 21

T

his afternoon I reached Florida and ran smack aground. It doesn’t matter why, I just did. Earlier in the day, still back in Georgia, I had cruised through Jekyll Creek on a cushion of six feet of tide over its shallow channel and then I had short-cut the channel across Saint Andrew Sound because I knew I had five feet of tide under me. (Zen draws 3-feet, 10-inches.) But by the time I crossed the St. Marys River into Florida, all that water was just gone. Going through the recently dredged shoal area just south of Fernandina Beach, I misjudged the cross-over from the extreme red side to the red marker in the middle of the river, and the water under the boat simply melted away and I came to an unscheduled halt. I didn’t even know where I’d gone wrong. Had I come over too soon or too late? I fooled around a bit, trying to urge Zen off, but no luck. About 10 minutes into this, a big blue-hulled Hatteras came galumphing by and left me two presents. First, by passing behind me, it showed me where the deeper water lay. Second, by not slowing down, it sent a lovely big wake my way. I waited for the first waves to hit me and reversed a bit, waited for the next and the next, reversing a bit each time. That way I managed to back into deeper water and float free. Chastened, I went back on my way. All that is fine and dandy, but the reason I bring it up is this: Weighed in the balance of the whole fifteen-hundred-mile journey, it is the tricky bits that are the life and soul of the Intracoastal Waterway. Were we able to start at mile zero in Norfolk and simply arrive two, three or four weeks later without incident, we

might as well have taken Interstate 95. But because the ICW is a quagmire of shallows, big scary sounds and myriad other pitfalls waiting to trap the unwary, inattentive or merely unlucky, we while away the hours obsessing over rising and falling tides, or whether to take the red or the green side going around that bend. And there are unexpected benefits. Waiting for a better tide before tackling the notoriously shallow section after Jeremy Creek, we discover McClellenville, South Carolina, a tiny town with ancient oaks and dirt streets where you can buy fresh shrimp off the dock. Or finding ourselves in the middle of nowhere as night is falling, we choose the nearest anchorage we can find, which is how we discover Big Tom, Red Bird, Steamboat, Cane Patch (my favorite) or Toogadoo. Later, when we speak of famously shoal areas, we roll their names off our tongue with relish, for they contain magic. Hell Gate. Little Mud. Lockwoods Folly. Shallottes Inlet. Ashepoo-Coosaw Cutoff. For these are more than names: They are challenges with a whit of humor and a dash of menace. They are the stuff of poetry. They are an escape from the humdrum world. January/February 2019

Now listen to Sidney Lanier, poet of the marshes and namesake of two south Georgia bridges: Somehow my soul seems suddenly free From the weighing of fate and the sad discussion of sin, By the length and the breadth and the sweep of the marshes of Glynn. In other words, all of these things—the beautiful and the bedeviling—force us to forget that Uncle Albert has a cold and we’ve run out of milk. What’s become important is getting through this next difficult bit. “Quick, where’s the tide, Herman?” “Marguerite, spot the new markers as we go through this inlet.” “Trawler entering Fields Cut, could you call back the depths?”

“Whew, we made it! What’s next?” This in the end is what sets the ICW apart. We willingly suspend our everyday lives to become, for a few weeks or a month, someone else. Someone attuned to the subtlest changes in wind and water, adjusting every day to the challenges that each part of the trip brings, from North Carolina’s big sounds like Albemarle and Pamlico, to Myrtle Beach’s Rock Pile and the Socastee Bridge, which swings opens to reveal the bewitching Waccamaw River; from the scary currents that make landing on Charleston’s Megadock so interesting to Georgia’s maddeningly shallow but ineffably beautiful spider-web of water. And when we finally reach Vero Beach or Marathon or Marsh Harbor, where it’s 80 degrees and the sun shines every Design production by: Mike day, we feel both relief and a reluctance to pick up where we left off, to call

Uncle Albert and ask about that cold. No, the ICW is not crossing the Atlantic or sailing around the world, but in its way, it is no less satisfying. Each day is a challenge unique in itself. And by the time we pull into our destination, we can say we know our boats better than our relatives. But now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m almost to the Jacksonville Free Dock and the current is running out fast. I need to pay attention, because this is going to be a bit tricky.  In addition to being cruising editor of Chesapeake Bay Magazine, Jody is the author of the ICW Planning Guide and the ICW Mile-byMile Guide, both published by CBM.

Cruising the ICW Whether you’re heading for Key West or the Great Loop, one leg of the voyage is the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW). Join Chesapeake Bay Magazine Cruising Editor Jody Argo Schroath for a discussion about the joys and pitfalls of cruising and navigating this famous inland waterway.

Presented by Jody Argo Schroath Jody literally wrote the book on navigating the ICW. As the editor of the ICW & Atlantic Coast Mile-by-Mile & Planning Guide, she draws on her own experiences traveling up and down the Atlantic coast as a liveaboard cruising sailor. She writes the monthly “Jody’s Log” column for Chesapeake Bay Magazine.

Women at the Wheel Designed for women, this seminar gives a good overview of the things that you need to know out on the water. Combining terminology, safety, basic navigation, rules of the road and boat handling and maneuvering, this one hour seminar is bound to set you on the right course.

Presented by Devin Noone Devin began her career as a professional mariner on a fleet of boats in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina that included the 1987 America’s Cup sailboat Stars & Stripes. She came to the Annapolis School of Seamanship in the summer of 2018, where she handles various on-water training programs, maintains the training vessels, and helps to develop new programs geared toward female boaters.

Working Dog photo by Mark L. Atwater, upclosephoto.com

“There is no sea too rough for him to buffet and retrieve his dead or crippled bird... no duck too cleverly diving not to be captured, nor woodcock too deeply hidden in a swale for him not to be all afire till his work is accomplished, nor will he leave it until the desired end is attained.” —Harry Wordsworth Huntingdon on The Chesapeake Bay Dog, 1901
