WELCOME FROM

WELCOME TO THE MARINE TRADES ASSOCIATION OF BALTIMORE COUNTY’S (MTABC) 23rd EDITION OF ITS ANNUAL WATERFRONT GUIDE. Since its inception in 1988, our mission has been to improve the marine environment for boaters and residents of Baltimore County by working with community organizations and government agencies to promote a healthy Chesapeake Bay. MTABC gives environmental scholarships to area students, supports the efforts of local organizations including Wounded Warriors Day on the Bay, Back River Restoration Committee and Boating Safety Day and joins with the Greater Chesapeake Gateway Chamber of Commerce for fundraising events. Check out the calendar of events on page 10 for information on MTABC’s July 4th Fireworks Extravaganza, the Lighted Boat Parade and July Toy Run, and other area local festivals. Eastern Baltimore County has 173 miles of waterfront from the scenic shorelines of Marshy Point to the quiet coves of Bear Creek. The deep, uncrowded waters are made for swimming, sailing, wakeboard or waterskiing, kayaking, paddle boarding, cruising, fishing or just plain relaxing in a jellyfish free environment. Our area is also home to the Chesapeake Bay’s finest, most affordable marine facilities offering a wide range of boat slips, marine services and new and used boat sales. On behalf of our members, I invite you to dine at our delicious restaurants, enjoy special events, and explore the exceptional beauty of the Eastern Baltimore County waterfront — the Hidden Gem of the Chesapeake Bay! I wish you a safe, fun-filled boating season. Brian Keith Schneider President, MTABC

WOUNDED WARRIORS DAY ON THE BAY

Honoring Our Veterans

W

ounded Warriors Day on the Bay is in its sixth year providing wounded military veterans and their family members an enjoyable, stress-free day on the Chesapeake Bay. Hosted by North Point Yacht Club in Sparrows Point, with help from its sister clubs and numerous sponsors and volunteers, the event has received rave reviews from volunteers and attendees alike. Upon arrival, wounded veterans are presented with logo backpacks loaded with gifts and $250 gift cards. Their kids receive backpacks full of age-appropriate toys and school supplies. Attendees are then welcomed with a Vietnam Veterans Honor Guard, greetings from the Baltimore Ravens Cheerleaders, a military ceremony and officer’s greeting, Mission Bar B-Q lunch, and a 2-hour regatta cruise to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor through a water display by the Baltimore City Fireboats. Post-cruise, guests enjoy a Maryland style crab and shrimp feast, games and goodies for the kids. The 2018 event in August expects up to 200 guests with 40 boats, 50 volunteers and hundreds of donations. There is no doubt it

14

MARINE TRADES ASSOCIATION OF BALTIMORE COUNTY

will be another successful, rewarding day for all involved. Major sponsors include MTABC, Aerotek, Minerva Engineering, State Mechanical Contractors, MD Council Vietnam Veterans of America, and The Fitz-Patrick Wealth Management Group. Donations raised in excess of expenses go directly to wounded military and their families in the local area. Since 2012, WWDB has donated over $30,000 to local Wounded Warrior Projects, Frogman Outdoors, Operation Homefront and the local Fisher House Foundation. Although the event is not open to the public, information about the event and donating can be found at: wwdayonthebay.org or at Facebook.com/ woundedwarriorsdayonthebay. wg

HART-MILLER ISLAND

Escape To The Island BY MARYLAND ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICE

IN MAY 2016, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Port Administration (MDOT MPA) opened the South Cell of Hart-Miller Island (HMI) Dredged Material Containment Facility to the public for the first time. Last year, an additional 20,000 people came to enjoy the recreational and educational opportunities at HMI compared to 2016, with increased numbers of bicyclists, campers, and program attendance. Over a quarter of the visitors who entered the South Cell were returning visitors who wanted to experience biking or hiking on the island again. The Ranger led interpretative programs, which are designed to be interesting and informative for every age group, include fish seining and guided interpretation. Many family friendly activities to engage children in the outdoors and recreational activities such as beach volleyball are available. Programming was expanded in 2017 to include new offerings such as family fun days, treasure

16

hunts, Monarch Butterfly tagging, and Ranger instructed history programs. Exhibits at the HMI Ranger Station to educate visitors about local flora and fauna on the island were also new in 2017. Bicycles and binoculars are available to South Cell visitors to observe birds and other wildlife while traveling along eight miles of trails that circle a large pond and include covered benches with breathtaking views of the Chesapeake Bay. The 1.8-mile Long Trail Loop around the South Cell is marked with signage about the island’s ecosystem and history. In 2017, a monument was added to the trail honoring the HMI Citizen’s Oversight Committee (COC), which has monitored the formation and impact of the island since 1981 and served as a voice for citizens. The COC now oversees the island and monitors the future development, use, and maintenance of the Hart-Miller/Pleasure Island chain, and water quality in the area immediately surrounding the islands. There are plans to improve a particularly steep portion

of the Long Trail Loop for easier travel in 2018. Public access to the HMI South Cell will continue for its third season, beginning Memorial Day weekend and continuing through September. In response to visitor feedback, expanded days and hours of operation are being planned for the 2018 season. Note that the island is accessible only by personal boats and no public shuttles are available at this time.

Light concessions are available for purchase near the Ranger Station. The HMI North Cell design is currently under development. Upon completion it will primarily consist of upland habitat with some transitional areas and a deep pool. Currently efforts are being made to dewater and vegetate the cell. When the North Cell habitat development is complete it will also be managed and operated by the DNR as part of the State Park, similar to the South Cell. wg

In addition to HMI South Cell public access, the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Port Administration (MDOT MPA) also owns two additional facilities that offer public access; Swan Creek at the Cox Creek Dredged Material Containment Facility (DMCF) and Masonville Cove, adjacent to the Masonville DMCF. The Cox Creek facility is located on the south side of the Patapsco River downstream of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. The Masonville facility is located along the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River near the Hanover Street Bridge. The Cox Creek and Masonville facilities are the only sites that can accept dredged material from the Baltimore Harbor Shipping Channels. The development and operation of the Cox Creek facility includes environmental improvements to the neighboring Swan Creek wetlands and beach area. Both are protected by conservation easements held by the North County Land Trust. The tidal connection to the wetland has been restored and reef balls have been installed offshore to improve aquatic habitat and prevent beach erosion. The wetland has become a major bird habitat and draws birding enthusiasts from all over the greater Baltimore area. Masonville, named for an extinct railroad town, was once an industrial riverside area. After purchasing the site, the MDOT MPA removed large amounts of abandoned industrial debris and launched an extensive environmental restoration project. This includes developing the Masonville Cove Environmental Education Center, a “green� building that opened in 2009 with acres of surrounding land that encompass trails, wetlands, a pier, and a floating dock. Activities available to children and adults include kayaking, birdwatching, fishing, and hiking. Special events such as open houses draw regular crowds, and the center serves as a desirable meeting spot for many groups.

ESSEX REVITALIZATION

Essex Day from the air

Essex tree lighting

Essex Rebirth

Breathing New Life into a Gateway Community ARTICLE AND PHOTOS BY KAREN WYNN

Land plots sales for Essex, MD began in 1909. The area, surrounded by beautiful waterways was seen as a summer getaway community. Prime jobs were available when Glenn L. Martin acquired property in Middle River and contracts started growing to build aircraft. When the economy slumped the area began a rapid decline with the loss of jobs resulting from the closing of Sparrows Point Steel Mill, Eastern Stainless, General Motors and other large manufacturing companies. Attempts have been made in the past to revitalize the area with limited success, but this time around a different approach is being taken. The Eastern Baltimore County Task Force (EBCTF) is a committee formed under the Chesapeake Gateway Chamber of Commerce, working to breathe life back into the Essex Business Corridor and the surrounding area. The EBCTF is comprised of several vested

residents and business owners from Essex including President, Cliff O’Connell and Vice-President, Sam Weaver. The Board of Directors and committee members are made up of proven community leaders that combined have owned businesses in Essex for well over a century. But it doesn’t stop there because each has been involved in cleaning up their neighborhoods and waterways and have rallied to get the community involved in their respective projects. The different approach is to take on smaller, attainable projects like cleaning up trash, fixing benches and adding street corner flower pots to draw attention and pump pride back into the community, instead of taking on grand, unattainable goals. The Chamber applied for and recently received a Commercial Revitalization Action Grant for $10,000 from Baltimore County Department

of Planning to begin small projects. The EBCTF has also been working with Planning and Councilman Todd Crandell to apply for a Sustainable Community Designation from the State of Maryland. This designation, when approved, will open the door to larger grants offered through the Department of Housing and Community Development, Community Legacy Program. The EBCTF knows this is a community that comes together for events such as the Essex Christmas Tree Lighting, Essex Day Street Festival or even a Back River stream cleanup when hundreds come out to celebrate and take pride in their community. The area is surrounded by peaceful rivers and streams, parks and golf courses with views of the Chesapeake Bay. The organization is working to improve the economy and quality of life and now is the time to strike with jobs coming back to the area from TradePoint Atlantic, Amazon and the Greenleigh Development of Route 43. With the support of Baltimore County and key community stakeholders such as the Marine Trades Association of Baltimore County and the Essex Middle River Civic Council, a better Essex is attainable. wg

vessel provides the transport while the boater provides the dream. As with all passions, there comes a joy in sharing adventures, education and comradery. For many boaters, that sharing happens at their yacht club. Yacht clubs began centuries ago — some for racing and competitions and others for the social aspect. The tradition continues today. They are organized like most clubs with naval titles like Commodore, Vice Commodore and Rear Commodore. Generally, each yacht club has a unique burgee (flag) that identifies members during activities and events. The Baltimore County waterfront is dotted with a variety of yacht clubs where lifetime friendships have formed through the love of boating and fun of exploring the area’s waterways. Investigate the options and choose the right fit for your boating lifestyle.

Situated at the entrance of Sue Creek with a grand view of the creek, Middle River and the Chesapeake Bay, BYC provides amenities including bar, restaurant, pool, dockmaster services and fuel dock. Visiting yacht clubs are welcome.

BACK RIVER RESTORATION COMMITTEE

GET INVOLVED AND GET RESULTS!

ARTICLE AND PHOTOS BY KAREN WYNN

BACK RIVER RESTORATION COMMITTEE (BRRC) was formed in 2007 by Herb Ulrich who was raised on the much-polluted Back River in Eastern Baltimore County. The good news is that the river has shown remarkable improvements in the past couple of years due to the efforts of selfless volunteers, generous supporters and improvements in the Back River WWTP. The watershed for Back River runs from Towson through Baltimore City to Essex. Through the years BRRC has organized many cleanups with hundreds of volunteers. Between these volunteer cleanups and the Trash Boom managed by BRRC and located below the 695 overpass, they have kept over 3 million pounds of trash from entering the Chesapeake Bay. Volunteers have included students from local schools including Crossroads and Eastern Technical. The organization and its volunteers work to protect the future of Back River and the Chesapeake Bay. BRRC realizes the importance of working with the community, businesses and other organizations to educate and accomplish their goals of cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay. Some of the organizations that BRRC partners with include but are not limited to MTABC, Coastal Conservation Association, Baltimore County Business Association, Upper Bay Yacht Clubs and their members, Chesapeake Gateway Chamber of Commerce, Friends of Herring Run and numerous community organizations. Through the support of many local businesses and the community, the organization has grown tremendously since its inception in 2007. They have added boats, barges, a dump trailer, restroom trailer for cleanups and much more equipment to aid in the removal of

trash, tires and abandoned boats in the waterways. BRRC understands that they need to educate our youth and guide them to understand the significance of protecting our natural resources. The organization has chartered both BSA Venturing Crew 726 and Sea Scout Ship 7117 in the past year. Involving this generation in both recreational and cleanup situations on the water makes them aware of the importance of clean water. BRRC recruits environmental students for its Summer Internship Program to give them an opportunity to apply classroom knowledge

BRRC clean up crew 2018

in a real-world situation. The students learn about running a boat, tides, wildlife, and participate in cleaning up the river, planting trees, marking storm drains and educating the community. As they move forward, BRRC would like to work with more schools in the area, increase their volunteer base and become more involved with water monitoring. The more people that are involved, the more effective they will be with cleaning up our waterways and keeping them from being polluted in the future. wg If you would like to be a part of BRRC, please contact President Sam Weaver or Director Karen Wynn at savebackriver.org.

FIREWORKS

2018 MARINE TRADES ASSOCIATION FIREWORKS IN MEMORY OF RAYMOND N. PORTER AND JACK DECKLEMAN II BY ELLEN HONEY

Raymond N. Porter

GET YOUR SPARKLE ON at dusk on June 30th! After a five-year hiatus, the Marine Trades Association of Baltimore County will be producing a dazzling fireworks display named the Marine Trades Association Fireworks in Memory of Raymond N. Porter and Jack Deckleman II. The event will take place on the water east of Wilson Point. Because they are not burdened by land safety restrictions, barge based displays use larger shells causing higher explosions seen and heard for miles. Residents and boaters located on Hogpen, Norman, Hopkins, Dark Head, Stansbury and Frog Mortar Creeks will have especially spectacular views. The intense seventeen minute illumination will feature high aerials visible from Baltimore County waterfront restaurants. This display is dedicated to two departed MTABC members who had a significant impact on the association and the community. In the mid-nineties, it was Ray Porter who conceived the idea that a fireworks show would be a great thing for the residential and boating communities. For many years, it was Jack Deckleman’s towing company getting barges into place. Produced by MTABC and sponsored by local businesses and community donations, the event has become a major fundraiser for MTABC. The proceeds are a key component of charitable giving for the year. Locally, MTABC supports the Back River Restoration Committee, Wounded Warriors Day on the Bay, the Middle River Lighted Boat Parade, Baltimore County Marine Police Safety Day, environmental educational scholarships, the Stembridge Youth baseball program and

28

various Christmas season donations among many other events. They also offered support to the New Jersey Marine Trades during Hurricane Sandy. Obviously production cost of a barge mounted fireworks show is very expensive and is dependent on the financial sponsorships of residents, boaters and businesses in the area. wg

‘TIS THE SEASON

Christmas is Twice The Fun This Year! Middle River Christmas in July Toy Run If you enjoy the Middle River Lighted Boat Parade, check out the latest addition to the boating season, the Middle River Christmas in July Toy Run. In its 2017 inaugural year, 2,000 toys were gathered and delivered to the Eastern Baltimore County area. This year on July 25th, the event is expected to collect over 2,500 toys. Jim High and Hunter Markley Williams have worked tirelessly to make sure that Baltimore County children have an enjoyable Christmas. Those interested in joining in on the fun can participate by decorating their boat and visiting participating waterfront restaurants with unwrapped gifts for boys and girls. Depending on the number of toys donated, participants will receive a gift certificate prize.

Lighted Boat Parade November 24th, 2018 The annual Lighted Boat Parade features 95 lighted vessels from a 16-foot Jon Boat to a 65-foot yacht, all displaying creativity. The event takes place the first Saturday after Thanksgiving with its slogan, “Let’s Get This Christmas Season 30

Started, Middle River Style!” As many as 12,500 onlookers from Pennsylvania, Virginia and beyond jump-start their holiday season watching Santa, snowmen, angels and the Grinch float along the four mile course. One noteworthy local participant, Captain Nick Hock is known for crafting interesting presentations over the years including a bi-plane, a fire truck complete with lights and sirens, a flame-spewing volcano and the legendary Bay Dragon, “Chessie” breathing fire as it floated along. Waterfront restaurants are some of the favorite gathering spots to catch the parade, allowing guests to view a fireworks display, a visit from Santa Claus and activities for children to round out this family friendly event. Reserve early as restaurants book a month ahead.

MARINE TRADES ASSOCIATION OF BALTIMORE COUNTY

Producer Jim High attributes the majority of the hard work to event host Pat Williford of Stansbury Yacht Basin, along with Chris Templeton, Scott Borrowy, and Tony Correlli for coordinating the captains and route. wg For more information on the Middle River Christmas in July Toy Run and the Lighted Boat Parade, visit Eventbrite.com

WE REMEMBER

RAYMOND N. PORTER

RAYMOND N. PORTER

BOB PALMER REMEMBERS

1939 – 2017

Prior to 1979, Raymond Porter worked as a Steamfitter. On April 1, 1979, Ray and his wife, Shelia, purchased a marina in Eastern Baltimore County and renamed it Porter’s Seneca Marina. This action was the beginning of Ray’s new career as “his own boss” in the recreational boating arena. Being an avid outdoorsman (hunting, fishing, and boating), Ray enjoyed being with boating people in the marina environment. In late 1988, with nine years of experience as a marina owner, Ray and a number of other operators saw a need to form an association of individuals involved in the recreational boating trades in Baltimore County. The Marine Trades Association of Baltimore County, (MTABC) was formed. Ray was elected to the initial Board of Directors, the 2nd Vice president (1990-1993), and the 3rd President (1994-1996). As a very active member of the MTABC board from its beginning to the time of his passing, Ray initiated and coordinated many activities including the Middle River Fireworks for 15 years. Ray and his family also coordinated the MTABC Bull & Oyster Roast for more than 10 years. The MTABC, the Baltimore County boating community, and Ray’s family have lost a very good person. Raymond J. Porter, his son, is now at the helm of Porter’s Seneca Marina, located on Seneca Creek, in Middle River, Maryland.

June 5, 2017 marked the passing of Raymond N. “Butch” Porter, beloved husband for 56 years to Sheila (nee Picard), devoted father of Raymond J. Porter and wife Coleen, Kimberly Hubbard and husband Chris; loving grandfather of Kaitlan, Christopher J., Alyssa, Brittany, Meghann, Christopher N. and Brian. Ray was born in Harford County. His father built Porter’s Blue Gables Bar & Restaurant on Pulaski Hwy. In the early 60’s Ray and his new bride owned Butch’s Seafood (now Al’s Seafood on Eastern Blvd.) while he simultaneously worked in Steamfitters Local 438 as an apprentice. When he left the steamfitters to purchase what is now Porter’s Seneca Marina, Ray often joked that he and Sheila got into the marine business on April Fool’s Day since they made settlement on April 1, 1979. The marina was a family affair including son, Ray and daughter, Kimberly. As the younger Porter assumed more of the day-to-day marina management, Ray and Sheila began to travel, especially on cruises. A friendly, outgoing man, Ray enjoyed hunting in Wyoming and Colorado, time at his cabin in West Virginia, and quiet time fishing on their 38’ Bertram. But according to his son, most of all Ray loved his family and working at the marina. “He loved going to work every day and interacting with people. He made a lot of friends through the marina, especially other marina owners”, says Ray Jr. “His best friend was Bob Palmer of Tradewinds Marina and we used to joke that we would have to get them an intercom they talked so much.” 34

JACK WHEELER

JACK WHEELER 1929-2017 J. Stanley (Jack) Wheeler Jr. passed on to eternal life November 22, 2017. He was born October 31, 1929 to Stanley J. Wheeler Sr. and Augusta Brill Wheeler. The family moved from Patterson Park in Baltimore to Essex, MD in 1946. On May 10, 1953 Jack married Edith Betz to start a marriage that lasted 58 years until her passing in 2011. Jack spent his life dedicated to his family and his career in the foundry industry. After serving his apprenticeship at Bethlehem Steel Corp, he worked at Gibson and Kirk Foundry in Baltimore where he eventually became Vice President. During that time he also was a Chairman of the Chesapeake Chapter of the American Foundry Society and an instructor in the U.S. Navy. In 1970, Jack and Edith started Chesapeake Foundry Inc. The fuel crisis in the late 1970’s changed the company’s focus from marine manufacturing to marine repair and is currently known as Millers Island Propeller Inc. Jack stayed active in the family business until his death, and will be remembered and missed by all the great friends and customers he made over the years in the marine industry. He is survived by his two children Jacqueline Wheeler, Robert Wheeler and wife Donna, two grandchildren Robert Wheeler Jr. and wife Kerri, and Stuart Wheeler. wg

NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS NEW “SAFE BOAT” ON PATROL THE BALTIMORE COUNTY MARINE POLICE UNIT received its new 23-foot center console “Safe Boat” in November 2017. Purchased through the FEMA Port Security Grant with Baltimore County Police matching the cost by 25 percent, the new boat replaced an aged 21-foot Boston Whaler. The added length gives operator and crew an improved, safer ride over turbulent water. The 23-foot Safe Boat’s 100-gallon fuel capacity means longer patrol time and more time on a scene. The new Safe Boat is powered with T/200 high output Evinrude E-Tec G2 engines. The entire boat, with the exception of the foam collar system, is made of long-lasting aluminum, reducing costs over the long run for repairs and replacement by Baltimore County. The new boat also has a forward looking infrared system (FLIR) which allows the crew to see objects, people or boats in the water at night or in low light situations. Because the boat is long enough to hold their additional gear, the boat will be also be utilized by the county’s Underwater Recovery Unit. As part of the grant, the Marine Unit also procured a radiological, nuclear, biological detection portable back pack system allowing them

to scan large container ships for any dirty bomb material from a safe distance as they proceed to port. The Baltimore County Police Marine Unit is proud to have the opportunity, in the area of Homeland Security, to protect the citizens and infrastructure of Baltimore County, Baltimore City and the state of Maryland from hazards imported into its neighborhoods. wg

STORM RESCUE TOWBOATUS BALTIMORE CAPTAINS, Dale and Austin Plummer are local heroes — earning the Boat US Meritorious Service Award for saving a man’s life in the summer of 2017. A brutal storm had knocked sailor John Dalmas into the water. When his 25-foot sailboat was found aground, the Coast Guard and Maryland Natural Resources Police quickly launched a search. After fruitless hours off Bodkin Point, the Plummers made one last pass along the North Point shoreline before dark. It was then that 19-year-old Austin Plummer who had not yet earned his captain’s license, sighted Dalman. After seven hours in the water, he was standing in chest-deep water about 300 yards from shore. When the Plummers pulled him aboard, Dalmas explained that other boats had been within several hundred yards of him, but only the red towboat crew had seen him. wg

AIRCRAFT RETURN “HOME” The Martin RB-57A Canberra The Glenn L. Martin Museum received a Preservation Heritage Fund Grant of $1,800 to repaint 52-1467, the first non-building funds ever granted. After 10 months and 550 volunteer hours of sanding, sheet metal work, priming, painting and detailing, the final coat of black gloss paint was applied in the summer of 2017 followed by lettering, “stars and bars” and tail decals. The glossy black paint is a salute to its Cold War service as a night reconnaissance aircraft in Europe. The Martin Company built sixty seven RB-57A Canberras at Middle River in 1953 for the U.S. Air Force. Mauler under restoration Photos used with permission of the Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation Museum

For more information on The Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation Museum visit, mdairmuseum.org

Additionally, two Martin AM-1 Maulers have been brought back to the Museum. With help from the Maryland Air National Guard, the planes are now at GLM for extended restoration. Various sub-components have been returned to factory condition, including extensive sheet metal work to replace unusable and damaged airframe areas. The Museum’s intent is to take the best pieces of the two aircraft to bring a finished example of this rare Martin aircraft to full display condition. Much remains to accomplish, so volunteers are welcome to join this significant restoration project to bring another of Glenn L. Martin’s treasures back into public view. wg
