Oh Jason, selling your boat was the wrong choice. The Bay is a great place and she would have been an ideal platform to explore her 4000+ miles of shoreline. If you want to learn about The Bay there are several books you could read. First on my list is Beautiful Swimmers by William Warner. It is a Pulitzer Prize book about Crabs, Water-men and The Chesapeake Bay. There are plenty of other books about The Bay including Mitchner's Chesapeake. The Bay is rich in history from Yorktown to Ft McHenry in Baltimore and many places in between.
