"I also draw 4', and have always cut between the two range markers with no problems. A friend was in Swan creek this weekend as well, he draws 5' and cut just North of the tall (northern) range light with no issues."

Good to know! Coming outta the Patapsco myself, I'd always skirt just north of the light going into Rock Hall or Swan Creek when i drew 4'3. Next season I'll be drawing 5'2!

Just missed you, I was in Swan Creek Saturday night. I made my way up to Hendersons near Fells Point on Monday......GEEZ. The Patapsco was a zoo. I think most of the motor boaters had their auto pilots set to "heat seeking". Is it usually that bad?

The holidays is when all PB come out in unfortunate ### So I try to avoid those spots like Baltimore, Annapolis, etc...all the hots spots. I bet Fairlee was packed with stink potters

One day I was going into Worton and just passing Fairlee when a gang of about 30 jet skis came blasting out at full speed from the Fairlee Creek entrance. Since that day I've had a feeling like Fairlee isn't my kinda hang out.

My boat is Jessica Anne out of Havre De Grace, but I usually hit Worton or Still Pond on overnighters. If I do three or more days then I go south into your territory.
This past week I anchored in Still Pond, Cacaway Island, Swan Creek, Dobbins Island, then got a slip at Hendersons Wharf near Fells Point for two nights, then back over to Worton, and finally back to HDG (in that order). I probably crossed paths with someone out there.

Man...you had some great weather for that trip. Love Still Pond, haven't been this year but hopefully before the season is over

Chef -- Thanks for noticing my teak! I busted my butt on it this spring and it does look good. Now to keep it that way! As for yours, ummm, I'm always available for advice.

As for stink potter traffic on the Patapsco, was last weekend Fells Point Funfest or some such thing? Fells Point does have some events that really draw the PB crowd and that is no fun. Of course, there's always the opening of rock fish season in the fall.

Sounds like we need to plan an overnighter somewhere with Sapper. That would be a blast.

It wasn't too bad. I could have used a little more wind on a few days though. My boat is really heavy for a 27 footer, and she needs about 15kts. steady to really get moving. Monday morning was good until I started running north and the apparent wind dropped to 5-kts. Thursday (yesterday) was my best sailing day, I had 15kts. apparent from the north east. I was going back to HDG so that put me on a close reach and I hit 6+ boat speed the whole way home. My SOG was a little slower because of bad timing with the tide though.

I don't think there was an event going in Fells Point because the bars were pretty slow. I think it was just the weekend warriors coming back in.

Sailed to Rock Hall from Baltimore Saturday

Did anybody sail Saturday? The wind was really blowing and then my crew blew their breakfasts over the sides. Got to the sand bar near low tide and sailed south and around it. Sunday I sailed straight across just north of the #4 marker near high tide. I never saw anything shallower than 5.8 pop up on the depth sounder.
