The Chesapeake Bay Boston Whaler Club sponsors this event to recruit Boston Whaler owners to help with swim events we support around the bay.Teaparty is a fun event for the whole family,music,parade and plenty to see. Overnite accommodations can be found at www.chestertown.com . We provide a pavilion,grills to cook on and restrooms.Docking is avaliable for 20 boats,a strategic use of fenders is suggested.If you have a favorite beach chair bring it we would like to see them.You do not have to be a member of the club,just have a whaler.We welcome new members and console previous owners There are various launching ramps along the Chester river.Let me know if you need a ramp permit they are county controlled.

We’ll be there…we had a great time last year and look forward to seeing everyone again. I will probably launch at the same place I did last year. Can’t remember the name but it was just down river and had a small restaurant/hotel combo and its own private ramp. Did they rebuild the pavilion? The last I heard it had some fire damage.

Scott-

I'm interested! A few questions...

1. How quickly will 20 boat slips fill up?
2. Would it be better if I left my Whaler at home and came by car?
3. How do I join the Chesapeake Bay Boston Whaler Club?
4. How many people in the Club?
5. If I tow my Outrage, I will need to get a ramp permit.

Thanks,
Kevin

Scott,

Please to advise on how to obtain one of those ramp permits... Never put my Nauset or Bearcat(85) in salt water before, but what can one day hurt...Is there more details on this event.???

Scott: I would like to bring my 1966 Nauset/Sakonnet to the Tea Party on May 24th. Can you reserve me a spot. My boat is almost identical to the model you had at your desk when I met you at the shop, except I have the white platform deck. Jim Cooke

This will give you a guide to all public ramps in Maryland.

Just move your mouse to the right hand side of the map and the brown county is Kent and the green is Queen Anne's (if you leave it on the county it will say the name). Chester town is where Kent and Queen Anne's border on the Chester river intersected by Route 213. Hope this helps.

Rolphs Wharf is down river about four miles from Chestertown.They have a ramp and docks.No permit is required to use there ramp.The ramp fee is five or ten dollars.We have stayed there over night several times both on the boat and at there bed and breakfast.

Yes, Rolph's Wharf is a great choice. They have a web site at http://www.rolphs.bizonthe.net/

She shoots, she scores!!! My wife just today booked what certainly must be the last available room at Rolph's Wharf for Memorial Day weekend. We now have a room for Fri May 23 and Sat May 24. Will be at there with Outrage 19 and ear to ear smiles. Can't wait! Kevin

Scott,

Does the Chesapeake Whaler club have a website?? Sorry, I won't be able to come on the 24th. I'm going to the Florida Keys for a week of fishing! Homey.

Scott,

Thanks for the launch ramp permit application... just got this morning... Is this something that I can obtain on the same day as use.??? Kinda like the fishing licenses are...

Ed, You don't need a ramp permit if you use Rolph's Wharf... its a private ramp. Safe parking and its a short run to the dock at Chestertown. Closer than the county ramps. If you plan to use a county ramp you can get a short term permit and bait and tackle stores in Kent County.

Chestertown weather for holiday weekend looks to be damp, to say the least. Is someone bringing a big canopy for us to sit under? How will I convince the Mrs that we should still make the trip? Hate this crummy weather we are having of late.

Being as I have already made the plans and set my mind to it, the rain will not sink my boat... Thunder and lightening of coarse would be another story...

I’m still planning to attend. Anyone else? Last year there was a big pavilion that we used but I heard that it was destroyed in a fire. Does anyone know if it has been rebuilt?
kgregg posted 05-22-2003 01:32 PM ET (US)     Profile for kgregg  Send Email to kgregg     
For what it is worth, Scott Leidig emailed me last night and mentioned that a pavilion could be used for shelter when the rain starts. I have never been to Chestertown. Kevin

Chestertown Tea Party was a little damp but still fun. Thought the turnout was good considering the weather. Scott put on a great show with the half boat showing how to send it to the bottom and have it bounce back above water. Glad he was on board and not me.

Hello Tea Partiers!

It was a great time despite the weather! I have never had so much fun while being so completely wet for so many hours on end. My son Kyle and I took 48 digital pics. Will sort them all out and make a web page or two of them. Thank you Scott for getting all of us together. Will see you again! Kevin

It was a wet two days for me but I had a real great time.Thanks Scott for the demo in the half Whaler. Ray

Was the first wetting of the hull this year and a good soaking of the driver too... The best part was to finally put faces to the fellow members handles (names)... To my surprise, Scott is the guy I have been dealing with for years at the local Whaler dealership... The guy always seemed to know just what he was talking about, now I know why...
Scott was great in showing the world that Whaler is now entering the submarine industry... Possibly the factory folks should investigate further on this spectacular stunt that Scott found by accident... It would definitely convince the public of the invincibility, dependability, recoverability of Whalers... Just went to prove that even if you can get a Whaler (even half a Whaler) to submerge, it will just pop back up like a cork and be ready to continue onward...
Thanks again Scott for getting this event going... It finally pushed me to give the Bearcat a taste of salt... Sorry I didn't make it to the Sunday events... I won't be able to make the 8 June happenings either (working the mid shift that day)...
Sortie

We also enjoyed the Chestertown Teaparty Rendezvous, and having a 5 year old grandson on the scene added to the fun. It has been a while since I have made 1-2 hour runs in the rain, but at least the water conditions were good. Scott, Thanks for the support. Jim Cooke

I've made a web page of some of the pics I took at the Teaparty/Whaler get together. The address is below. (Ray, your pics are not yet on the page.)

http://mywebpages.comcast.net/kevingregg/whaler/teaparty/

I used a great package called "Thumbs Plus" from http://cerious.com to make the web page.

Enjoy!
Kevin
