  1. ^^ Really? Good bye
  2. awesome
  3. Check Nada my guess is anywhere between 10-25k
  4. Thanks for the great advice
  5. I'm just about to purchase my first boat and I'm looking forward to getting out on the bay with my kids. Besides the obvious answer like fishing and crabbing what else do you like to do on your boat on the Chesapeake bay? I'm thinking of taking the kids sightseeing on various islands (assuming it's allowed) I'm not too familiar with the restriction on parking a boat on a beach and look for clams and other critters. What do you like to do?
  6. Fyi dan, Looks like Maryland dnr charged at least one person. Thanks for looking out. http://news.maryland.gov/dnr/2018/07/27/cambridge-man-charged-under-poaching-restitution-act/ A Montgomery County man was charged July 23 with taking 31 undersized striped bass by officers on surveillance in the area of the Kent Narrows drawbridge. Grodbin Eliberto Manzanarez, 43, of Silver Spring, was seen at his vehicle by an officer checking fishing licenses. A consent search of his vehicle turned up a trash bag behind the driver’s seat that contained 31 fish. Manzanarez is scheduled to appear in Queen Anne’s County District Court Sept. 20 for possession of 31 striped bass under 19-inches long and possession of 29 striped bass over the legal limit. If found guilty, he could be fined as much as $2,000.
  7. Also do you thnk 20' is long enough?
  8. I've decided I'm going to get a boat. Now to figure out which kind to get. I'm leaning toward a 20' bay boat like a Carollina Skiff 218, Bayliner Element F21, Bulls Bay 2200. What other boats would you recommend for the Chesapeake? Also anyone with boating experience please feel free to chime in. Do you think a Bay Boat is the way to go? I'm looking to stay within the bay anywhere from Sandy Point to Point lookout and up the Potamac and possibly to Ocean City to do some near shore fishing. What are your thoughts on my plan?
  9. Funny you say that, i was just trying to convince my wife we need to take a family trip to Disney world, with alterior motives in mind....
  10. Ha yea I'm starting to get that feeling. My budget went up $10k in a week....
  11. if only finding the MSRP was that simple...
  12. good suggestion, just spoke with a guy who was selling a boat for a widow from Florida...
  13. Ha good plan. I'm not planning on waiting too long though.
  14. Is it me or is finding the MSRP (Manufacture's Suggested Retail Price) hard to find when it comes to boats? Search (various boat selling websites) 99% of the listings are "Call for price" Seems to me that boat companies don't want customers to know how much their boats should sell for. The one case I did find the MSRP for the boat from the manufacture's website the dealer site had the same boat listed for $12,000 above what the website said they are selling it for. And that was WITH a manufactures rebate of $1000. Is there a place where someone looking to buy find honest pricing in order to do some comparison shopping and eventually buy a new boat?
