A Full Day On The Water.

Ready in the morning

This past Sunday we here on the Bay were blessed with a flawless boating day. Slight breeze, upper 70’s and flat flat water. For days like that SWEET PEA is the GoTo boat. mainly because you can … Well.. Go…too! Ahhh the joy of a toilet on board, kitchen, running water and room for 6 to walk about and enjoy it all. Okay 8, including two of the dogs.

Out on the bay

This was officially the longest trip we have gone out on Sweet Pea in, with, on? We did a slow trek to the old Smith Point lighthouse. Roughly 15 miles up and out on the bay. Mouth of the Potomac. This area can be rough, but not today.. Today it was….Wait for it.. RUF RUF! Sorry, I will shut up now and just show pictures.


Dolphins!, Tons of them, and Lots of babies.

The Boatress was very happy

    Amazing. You’re as talented with your iPhone camera as you are with a varnish brush. And, yes Suzy, we noticed that new haircut.

    With all these cheap CC and other mark cruisers available, one could replicate your day on the water with the convenience of a galley, porcelain facilities, cold beverages, snacks, and a great retreat cocktails in the sun or shade. Why don’t more take advantage of this situation – probably the monthly slip costs? Or, just buy a marina or railway and boom, shangri la. Now, if you could only make slips available for wood cruisers you could create an enclave.

    Nailed that Floyd. Monthly slip costs. We wanted to keep our grandfather’s 36′ CC so that we could enjoy the boat and take the kiddos salmon fishing…but at $400 a month (and that was many years ago) for the slip, it made no sense. Sold the craft for $3500.

    Used to be that you could be a fire arson investigator or be an engineer for MaBell and during your career and after retirement, one could afford to have a boat like that, moor it, and afford to put 100 gallons of petrol in the tank to take the grandkids fishing.

    Years ago, the marina was chock full of activity – school kids running down the docks with the fish carts to boats that just arrived to take the salmon up to the cleaning station, every slip taken with a wait list in the masters shack, and everyone swapping stories.

    Now – the kids work at Walmart, there are a handful of boats, plenty of open slips, and the masters shack is long gone. It is just a ghost town loaded with sadness and decay.

    It is great to see Matt and his family being able to enjoy the situation that they worked hard to be in. And that little scruffy land shark swimming with them…
