I heard recently that the once free pier in Fells Point is either no longer free or soon won't be free. Rumor has it someone bought the deteriorating building and it's going to be a high-end...

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

We looked at at least 100 boats before buying ranging between 25-40 feet. Had one 2 year old and the second child on the way.
