Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Just got off the telephone with Maryland Department of Natural Resources Natural Resources Police. I talked with an old friend there who said "Well, that's the current law, but if you live aboard the boat, and you're anchored out, I doubt that this will be a problem if you retain the carcass for at least 24 hours. I would anticipate that most of the NRP Waterways Patrolmen would be somewhat lenient if you were to provide them with a carcass that measured above the legal minimum size limit, which would prove the fish were of legal size when filleted. After that, you would have consumed the evidence."

I told him that I intended to live aboard all summer, then head south to the Florida keys this winter, and he said "Damned, I really envy you - I would love to make that trip." He also said the law only pertained to striped bass and that you can legally fillet any other species of fish caught from your boat without landing it. From my expience, I believe most species of fish are better tasting than striped bass. Personally, I would take a tautog, spotted seatrout, croaker, snapper bluefish, swelling toad, weakfish, white perch, yellow perch, cobia or Spanish mackerel over striped bass any day of the week. And, for those in the middle and upper reaches of the Potomac River, northern snakehead is considered as a delicacy.

punahougirl84, when you get to Port Annapolis Marina, ask for Mario. He's their top marine mechanic and a member of this forum. He can fix things other folks cannot, and does an outstanding job of doing this in a timely manner.

All the best,

Gary

For rigging, I would contact Dave at Bosun Yacht Services while you're at Port A. Once you get to Rock Creek, you could contact Ken at Oak Harbor Marina.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Launched yesterday at Old Bay and sailed across the Patapsco to Rock Creek with 5-7 knots of wind on a close reach. Great to be under sail again! It was so nice I took a couple tacks out toward the Bay. Found a little water under the dripless shaft seal and in the engine sump after I shut off the engine - hope it's just a symptom of launching and not the whole seal starting to fail. Also have a minor diesel leak whose source I can't find for the life of me other than that I'm certain it's from the engine and not the tank. Need to do some sleuthing on that one.

Anyway, I made it over to Fairview and got tied up at the new slip. I think we'll like the slip although I have some fiddling around with the lifelines to do to make boarding easier with the short finger piers. I might add pelican hooks where the lifelines meet the stern rail. Always another project - but still looking forward to getting the decks swabbed, the water system commissioned, spending our first night of the season aboard, and, of course, doing some more sailing.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I took my mast down yesterday, with help from some great neighbors, so it's adios to the 2016 sailing season, at least for the foreseeable future.

Willy, what's going on with the mast? I thought you were set for the season.

Bulkhead issues, I think there is another thread about it.

WOW! Bummer. Well, you can always go with me on your days off - I'll be spending the entire summer on the bay this year.

I wonder how that law applies to those living aboard, though? Gotta make some more phone calls about this one.

Thanks, I may take you up on the offer, especially if there's fishing involved. I've never caught a tautog or a flounder.

My boat's got waterlogged decks, decomposing mast beams, and bulkheads that need replacing.

So jealous...I still have 9 boats in the way before I can launch and 6 of them haven't seen any signs of work being done. That's what I get for working my a.. off to get her ready to launch in early April.
