I get fuel at Bunkeys, they're always cheapest and they open at 5:30am. I get commercial rates but retail was $3.55 all in.

Solomon's was the major training location for the D-Day invasion

It's also the location the British came in from the Bay to sack DC in the war of 1812

Not bad for fuel - we are at 3.89 as best price on the northern end of the Potomac. I think I've seen that buyboat before. There is another on the Potomac that belongs to one of the owners of Tim's Rivershore. A couple years ago, several came in for a weekend event. Calvert Cliffs is really cool - great place to find fosil sharks teeth. http://www.fossilguy.com/sites/calvert/calv_srk.htm

Wish we were out there with you. Thanks for taking us along.

Thanks, glad to have the company. The buy boat belongs to the Calvert Maritime Museum. I looked very seriously at buying one two years ago instead of the DeFever. Might yet one day.

This is the one that lives on the Potomac most of the time: Photos of Oyster Buyboat PropWash by Daniel O'Brian

Some additional info: Chesapeake Bay Oyster Buyboat PropWash

I've met the owner and got a tour. Beautiful restoration (not surprising given that Hinkley in ME was involved). They use it primarily as a personal boat. It did the loop with its previous owners. BTW - how has the cell/data reception been on the lower Bay?

Great info. The buy boat reunions are well worth going to. Cell is excellent with the exception of north of Mobjack Bay to Smith Point of course if your closer to the shore then no problem in most spots.

That must be Tsalta. I see her on AIS next to you doing 16+ knots. BTW, I'm even more jealous of your summer destination. I grew up near Portsmouth NH and spent a lot of summers on the coast of ME. My brother went to Maine Maritime.

Saw that one on AIS and was wondering if you'd get a pic. Probably on its way back to Europe to pick up more BMWs, Mercedes and Volvos. We actually tracked our last two cars coming over from Europe to Baltimore.
