One of the topics on which I have valuable information is marine safety. If my pointing out the danger of such acts serves to make one boater stop and think about letting anyone or suggesting that anyone jump over the side for any reason then it is valuable information.

Recreational boaters kill themselves and others for the same reasons in the same way year after year after year, maybe it is because no one likes to hear about how stupid the reasons and ways are.

Why do some readers want to silence the message rather than question the wisdom of those who want to defend the act?
The point is made, Rick. And it is a very important one! Anytime you put someone over the side should NEVER be taken lightly. I think everybody understands. And if they don't, you have done your best in trying to educate them. So let's move along.

Daddyo,

I generally do not post anything on here, but I just have to tell you how much I enjoy your trips & photos. I look forward to them. I also would like to know what marina in Deltaville you are ending up at. We have our trawler at Remlik Marina just above Urbanna in La Grange creek, So feel like you are almost a neighbor....May the rest of your trip be a safe one, and keep the good reading & photos coming.....

Frank

Digital age conversations, what fun. Imagine how short these exchanges would have been if the opinions would have been expressed face to face. Oops, I just made it a little longer

You are right, Baker, I have done my best. Some people still believe Walbridge was a heroic victim of fate ... I guess it goes to show that ignorance really is bliss.

The most amazing visual and still shots I have of NYC are from the Staten Is ferry. Those tens of thousands of commuters every day have quite a view too.

Holy smokes, Daddyo. That last shot could be framed as a work of art. Incredible shots. Being a Baltimoron, I appreciate those shots as well.

The last image looks like the rt. 896 / summit bridge. We used to live just east of there a few years ago. Summit Bridge Farms.

Baltimore is a great stoop in that your anchored in the middle of the city if and only if you're really lucky. The Anchorage is only big enough for one boat and this city has deemed it a good idea to charge you $20 to land your dinghy for 5 hours. Not exactly what I would call welcoming to the cruisers. Keep in mind virtually every where else on the Chesapeake dingy landing is free and many towns have free non-overnight dockage for the mothership as well.

Ditto. Fantastic picture.

Looks particularly creepy when viewed on my phone, instead of the laptop.

I think it would make a good boater's version of a Halloween picture.

Daddyo, I've been lurking on here for quite awhile and have enjoyed your tales and the photos you've shared with us.

Thanks a lot for taking us along on your trip. It's always nice to see photos of where others enjoy their boats.
