My 17 ft Montauk is a Chesapeake Bay Whaler, I bought her in Dec. 1988 at Gates marina in Deale Maryland.Took delivery on Jan 10,1989 and could not wait to get out on Jan.28th 1989. She has carried me over many miles of Chesapeake Bay and Ocean at Va. Beach and Ocean City. 1200+ hours on the 88 Evinrude 90 now. (Hourmeter installed in 1992)
For some Chesapeake Bay stories aboard a Whalersee my web page: http://trotliner.tripod.com/index.html
I look forward to reading this forum!

I looked over the site and saw a bunch of familar landscape because I have spent alot of time crabbing on the Wye. There is one picture, on your site, which shows somebody jumping off of the bow of the boat into the Wye. It is obvious that picture is either faked or it was shot in December. The Wye River is so full of nettles that only someone with a death wish would jump into the river.

Enjoyed cruising your website - welcome to the forum!
We have had the pleasure of eating at Cantlers', although we arrived by land both times; it has been (and still is) one of my goals to eat there again having arrived by water.

Welcome, and since you are in the area maybe you might consider going to the Chestertown Tea Party, Chesapeake Whaler Club meet there on the 25th. Click on the url for more information.
I was out on the Wye two days ago and out on the Eastern Bay yesterday, caught some Croaker and took a ride around Kent Island. The bay was nice. Hope to see you around.

My wife's family is in the Virginia Beach area so I end up in the Bay alot. If I didn't have to go to a wedding in Charlottesville this weekend I believe I'd go and check out this tea party. It sounds like it's going to be alot of fun.

A little of the subject here but since everyone here seems to be familiar with the Bay this seems like the best place to ask.
I'm going to the Kiptopeke State park over the June 7th weekend and I'm looking for a place to rent a small boat. I'm in the middle of restoring my 66' Nauset so I'm currently boatless more or less. Does anyone know of a place to rent a boat from by chance?

The "Tea Party" looks like fun dont know what I will be up to this weekend however. Thats whats great about the Chesapeake Bay area,so many places to go with a trailer boat. Thanks for the invite.. I will keep it in mind, I could launch from Sandy Point.
Oh the picture on Wye River is yours truly. I know theres plenty of stringy nettles on the trotline at times. It was in 1996 and around August..In and out on a real hot 90+ day! Did not even think about nettles!

Welcome! and thanks for the tour, I'd love to spend some time there some day, We'd like to make a vacation of the Washington area for a couple weeks and shoot up to New England area for a week or so to visit the costal fishing areas and see the fall colors.
Thanks again, Darrell
