Ardelle crew in Solomons

Joey — Enroute to DC the intrepid crew of Ardelle D&B’d (docked and breakfasted) in Solomons, MD courtesy of Aram Neresian, owner of the schooner Heron.  Aram is a generous, affable, funny, entertaining, smart  fellow and a fine cook to boot.  A credit to the schoonerhead class, as you like to call us.   Many a schooner has been the recipient of his hospitality and there was no way Ardelle could pass by without a stopover.

I am sure Aram did his best to persuade Harold to join the upcoming Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race.

Rockport Outdoor Organized Activity Ban – EEE & Mosquitoes

Please share this information with the public.

Rockport has decided institute an Outdoor Organized Activity Ban similar to Essex and Manchester.

A “Code Red” announcement will go out this afternoon to residents.

Information about the ban is available on the Board of Health website, and attached.

Outdoor Organized Activity Ban – EEE & Mosquitoes

Recently a horse in Essex was found to have a mosquito-borne disease, Eastern Equine Encephalitis.  As a result, the Rockport Board of Health has decided to ban all outdoor organized activities in the Town of Rockport during peak mosquito hours (5 p.m. to 8 a.m.) effective immediately until the first hard frost.

EEE is a rare but serious illness, transmitted through the bite of a mosquito. 

The Board of Health reminds all residents to continue to take the following precautions to avoid mosquito bites:

* make sure all window and door screens are in good repair

* remove all standing water from your property and encourage your neighbors to do the same

* use mosquito repellent, read and follow application instructions

* wear long-sleeved shirts and pants when outdoors, especially between dusk and dawn

* use mosquito netting on baby carriages

* avoid areas where there is obvious mosquito activity

National Hot Mulled Cider Day

Today is National Hot Mulled Cider Day! Hot mulled cider is a delicious drink perfectly suited for crisp September afternoons. Apple cider is produced using a cider press and is a time-honored favorite of the autumn season.

To make mulled cider, slowly add brown sugar to apple cider in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until all the sugar has dissolved. Add other ingredients such as nutmeg, allspice, orange juice, and lemon juice, and bring to a boil. Strain out the spices, pour into a mug, and add a cinnamon stick.

Enjoy National Hot Mulled Cider Day as you sip on your homemade brew!

Mark Goetemann Looking for a Rig and Sail For a 50’s Montgomery Fish Boat

Hi Joey,
I just picked up a 1950’s Mongomery Fish Boat that I’m going to restore and keep on Rocky Neck but  I need a rig and sail for it. 
Besides Dave Mongomery and the boat yard, do you have any ideas on how I could find one?  Could you broadcast the request some way?
Thanks very much,
