Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) On Chesapeake Bay??

I have a CNG stove and two CNG tanks that hold 2500 psi each. One is down to about 800 psi and I'd like to top it off during a trip from the Potomac north to the C&D and on to NJ and NYC in June-July. Does anyone know where I can get CNG along this route?

Everyone says that CNG is all over the Bay, but I've yet to find a marina with a hookup (I admit that I haven't looked that hard). I'm tempted to try to hook up to a CNG tanker near Calvert Cliffs ......

SabreMan-

You might want to try looking for one via this locator tool. I hope that helps.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks for the tips. I'll call Hartge today to confirm the availability. The locator tools are cool too.

markdigi - Good luck with your Sabre. Ours is a 1984 Mk I. It's taken a bit of work to get her back to where she should be but it's been worth it. This is our second Sabre and I suspect that we're hooked for life!
