I am a licensed captain. I have a small sailing business that operates primarily on the Chesapeake Bay. The condition and quality of the Chesapeake Bay is immeasurably important to attracting clients and to my own personal recreation. The news of adding 1500 housing units to Kent Island is extremely alarming and I want to help fight that looming problem.
I recall with some sadness how John Smith and his contemporaries reported the clarity of the water and seeing the biomass of crabs moving across the bottom of the bay and its tributaries. These days, we are lucky to see a foot or below our waterlines. We may never get to THAT level of clarity again but we MUST do better than we are right now.
I am happy to help in this small way.
