OK, let's start a thread on this. But perhaps not on the Chessie page, I suspect the problems are very similar for lobster pots in Maine than for our crab pots. And I have the impression that this page never goes up to the main 'sailnet.com' forum page.

Does anyone know how to post there?

Re: Navigating Hart-Miller/Pleasure Island Cut

One of the many benefits of having a wide-beamed boat with a full keel with an attached rudder is that it's almost impossible to snag a crab pot. Notice, I said almost! One of the guys in my marina snagged one with a similar boat, the tide was dead low and slack, therefore the line was able to catch on one blade of his prop. It's the only one he has snagged in two years. I make 60 to 70 trips a year, often sailing at night and have never snagged one since purchasing the Morgan with the full keel. I snagged three in one day with the Catalina 27, all of which brought the boat to a dead stop.

Cheers,

Gary

Excellent, thanks a lot!

How are the crab pots on the other side (meaning Patapsco side, for me)?

A few weeks ago they were thick as fleas on a hound-dog's back. Most are situated, however, in pretty shallow water, mainly depths of 5 to 10 feet. This time of year there's no oxygen below 15 feet in that part of the bay so the crabs migrate to shallower water.

Good Luck,

Gary

I came straight up from the south. There were very few pots.

Thanks. Also to Gary. Sounds like it is at least an option.
