Re: Good place to anchor and have kids swim around in Cheasapeake Bay

May be it was just me. When our kids were young, we would not allow our kids swim in the Chesapeake Bay. But at that time, we were in the mid and upper Chesapeake bay. The lower bay is much cleaner.

Hmmm - we all swam all the time all over the Bay. Maybe that explains a few things...

Re: Good place to anchor and have kids swim around in Cheasapeake Bay

I am amazed by how many times I see kids on board without life jackets on. What do you do, have a go at the skipper or ignore it?

That's a loaded question and probably deserves its own thread. I'm not the best at tactfully suggesting things, so I keep my nose out of it.

To each their own...

There are places I wouldn't swim; the Patapsco, Back River, to name a few...Hart & Miller Island and North I think is safe. I wouldn't swim in most waters on the bay with an open wound or after a hard rain.


I spent many a summer as a kid on the bay, swam a lot and I seem OK...then again? LOL

I will just ignore it. The kids fail to wear PFD is not becasue the skipper does not know the rules. He or she chooses to ignore it, so why bother to confront the issue. If you really have an urge, call the authority.

YMMV.
