This past weekend we made a sacred annapolitan right of passage with our first day trip to Cantler’s Riverside Inn (by boat of course). Cantler’s is the quintessential Annapolis dining experience. Fresh, local, steamed crabs, crab cake sandwiches and raw oysters were what we were after.
We left Back Creek and Eastport MD, heading North across the mouth of the Severn River toward Whitehall Creek. We had a beautiful southerly breeze that kept the forecast thunderstorms well out of our way and provided a fantastic downwind run. I guess the word is out that we have a good time, because we were joined by Jess and Judy for this momentous occasion!

Many thanks to Jessica for taking such fantastic pictures! You can find Jessica Gray Schipp and her work at bejessed.com.
After this trip, I have completely had it with my outboard. It has never run very well and that time has come to retire her. I need something reliable and powerful. Anyone want to buy a 1987 Johnson Sailmaster 9.9 that needs a tuneup! No serious offer refused!
