I was bored yesterday so I went to the Baltimore Boat Show... wow... wow... it was really bad. I didn't expect many sailboats, but not one? Not even a sailing dingy. Why call it a boat show, call it the Baltimore Fishing and Trailer Boat Show. What a waste of $16. Did see a nice booth for MYC, that and the custom knife booth were the only interesting things to see. I will never go again. Few years ago they at least had a couple keel boats there, they didn't even have a Hobie! Ugh

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Shawn, that show fell apart many years ago when Ray Nichols sold it. That pretty much ended anything to do with sailboats. I can clearly remember the days when the show was in the 5th Regiment Armory and it was 50 percent sailboats. Same was true for the Washington Boat Show. Both are now powerboat shows, and mainly trailerable boats to boot.

All the best,

Gary

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

My sailing clearance was revoked this weekend.
My cove is still too iced up. Several inches thick, yet clear water lay 200 yards away.

Just sit on the bow and chop your way to soft water

I did that with an anchor when I was young to reach open water in the lower Susquehanna River where yellow per were schooled. Dumbest damned thing I ever did on a boat. One slip and I would have been dead in 20 minutes. And, when we returned 3 hours later, we couldn't find the opening, which I assume quickly froze over and had to use the anchor to get back into the launch ramp area again.

Wait for warmer weather, which will be a bit later this week.

Good luck,

Gary

Absolutely no way I could chop through this. It's basically all the snow that landed in the water, melted and re-froze.
I could safely stand on it and walk across the cove.

As of yesterday afternoon, there were large puddles of liquid on the sheet so if the warm weather holds for a couple of days, it *may* rot enough to let me out by the weekend.

Apparently going out in a jon boat in rough conditions in the middle of winter isn't too great of an idea, either: 2 missing hunters identified; authorities continue search on Severn River - WTOP

Apparently there's a new ID process that requires boats registered in Md now requires a drivers license to be on file for processing boat registration that may slow down new/renewal for the time being...

I renewed last year but I understand that MD now requires you to list your fishing license number to renew your boat registration. Even if you only had one for one year ten years ago. You need to have that number on the renewal.
