    2017 season Upper Chesapeake CSR roll call

    I'm Tom. I've been on the site since 2009 when we brought our second sea Ray a 330DA. We have 3 children 2 girls 1 boy. Ages are 22,15,14. My first boat was a classic 90 280DA which got my then girlfriend now wife into boating. Growing up I boated primarily with my father at the jersey shore around Wildwood, Stone Harbor, and Cape May. Fishing and getting the crap scared out of me running Herefords Inlet in our 22 cuddy cabin. That inlet is a classic shifting sand local knowledge kind of place where the USCG would throw out 3 buoys in May and the local knowledge was all you had.

    We moved onto our 3rd Sea Ray this season a 410DA. I appreciate all the knowledge here and learned a load of info from the thread which I read twice on the 410/400 sun dancers. It was great to hear that many of the members are doing well and that basically ,life happened for many of them. I was really glad to see FC3 post a short time ago I learned so much from his posts on the 330 thread, Thank You!

    Hack4Alivn is doing well. He is currently a bridge officer for Baltimorre Yacht Club and is beyond busy, I don't know how he has time to go to the bathroom between full time employment and all of us demanding members! He still has the 320DA but rumor has it that a sedan bridge may be in his future. I am sure once his term ends as an officer he will be back!

    We are down in Florida and Wow the weather has been fantastic this week. My wife said this is the Florida she can live in. We have been down before in August and it is pretty humid then. We spent the day over in Clearwater Beach what a wonderful area! Can't wait to get home and back on the bay!

    Re: 2017 season Upper Chesapeake CSR roll call

    Hi all,
    My name is Anthony and we actually do our boating in the Northeast however, I hope to be transiting the upper Chesapeake into the C&D canal in the next couple weeks provided this deal goes thru. Sea trial scheduled for May 23rd!!

    I am not at all familiar with this area other than the few times we visited via land. Must admit I am a little jealous of all the boating destinations and attractions on the bay. I'm sure it never gets old. Seems like everyone we meet is nicer than the next which takes a little getting used to being from New England.

    If all goes well we will be leaving from Kent Narrows Mears Point.
    Any local knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

    BTW, CSR is an excellent resource for all things boating! Joined 5 yrs ago when we bought our first Sea Ray 180 sport.

    Re: 2017 season Upper Chesapeake CSR roll call

    Hello I'm Mark.. seems like we have a few here. We are on our second boat, the first one we had for about a year back in 2005. Just got our 370AC last fall and am enjoying the heck out of it. Our previous boating was mainly on a lake in Washington state so we are new to the Chesapeak. I never knew how many shallow sandbars were in this bay, warning from fellow boaters has me nervous to venture out. We currently keep out boat at Nabbs Creek Marina, all the people there are nice as can be.

    Re: 2017 season Upper Chesapeake CSR roll call

    Tim here. Like Aaron (and surely others), an Upper Bay lifer, having spent my youth on Bush River (BRYC baby!) and having called Rock Hall, Worton Creek and the Sassafras River my summer home as an adult, we've recently moved to Mears like a few others. I just sold my second Sea Ray (and 15th boat). Number 16 will likely not be a Sea Ray, as we have become smitten with this beast called a 57 McKinna Pilothouse (see pic) that is currently lying in Fort Lauderdale. Hopefully the deal will go through soon, just waiting on some final repairs. We hope to have our new baby home by end of June. Like my last boat, she will be called "St. Somewhere". For my new Mears buddies, we are on D65. Come say hi once we're there.

    Although no longer a Sea Ray guy, I have made many friends on this forum that I hope to keep.

    And don't worry, Gary, I will straighten those VHF antennae as soon as she is mine. :-)

    I'm Steve and I have a 2003 320DA. I've been in Rock Creek for the past 2 years but just moved my home and my boat to Canton. She's docked at BMC Lighthouse Point.

    Hey folks- I'm Jeff.
    New to boating (2nd season). I moved up from a Kayak to the 270.
    My boat stays near the Waterside district in Norfolk VA.
    While I'm not able to give much advice, I do appreciate the information I've gotten from here!

    Re: 2017 season Upper Chesapeake CSR roll call

    I'm Jeff too, and although we aren't natives, we've lived here for 18 years and been boating on the Upper Chesapeake for 12 years. Our boat is in a boatel on the Magothy and we stay mostly on or close to the Magothy, often anchoring at the horse farm and hanging out.

    This thread is a great idea-- now that the kids are out of the house we've been thinking of doing more on the bay itself. When they were younger we did several overnights a season, but then they got to the "do we *have* to go??" stage and we cut back our trips to day trips.

    We'd to love to do a raft-up or three and get back into using the boat!
