Exclamation Advisory- A lot of debris in the Bay

I've been listening to CG Sector Baltimore advising that the Conowingo Dam has been open to allow excess water to spill..thus advisories for a lot debris in the upper portion of the Bay.

That includes whatever is left of the boats that broke loose from their moorings and went over Safe Harbor dam. I went by the Long Level area of the Susquehanna yesterday and saw a half dozen boats still on their moorings. A few boats were slanted nose-down because of logs caught on their mooring chains.

A few ofus Sailnetters rafted up in Eagles Nest in the Magothy Saturday evening. The trip down and back was a white knuckle one with constant dodging of logs, propane canisters, toliets, dead animal and tons of debris.

disgusting

We just returned from Jamaica Sunday, after sailing and snorkeling in those clean clear waters we decided totake our boat out and see how bad the bay is.....I've never seen it so terrible.

debris

Wow - that satellite photo says it all. We had a lot of logs in between boats at our marina this past weekend. Now I know why!

They don't call logs in the water as "Deadheads" for nothing..

Dead Head Log in th water - The Hull Truth - Boating and Fishing Forum

When I was traveling on my bike along the Washington and Oregon coast last summer..there where a number of sign posts giving warning to 'Dead Heads'...which happens to be a common cause of death to those venturing out in the Pacific surf.

Any Updates

I was out in sailing in the bay from Back Creek, Eastport last Tuesday (9/13) and found that I would have been much happier just staying at the dock. The lines of debris forced us to tack multiple times, and made the short sail to Thomas Point a longer trip.

I was hoping maybe someone has been out recently by the Bay Bridge/Thomas Point and had something better to report.

Cheers.
