Rafting up for a group photo, Left to right, Ned Asplundh in his Sea Pearl, Jim Luton in his crabbing skiff, Marsh Cat Obadiah, sans skipper Pete Peters who is doing the honors, Mike Wick in his melonseed cat Pepita (a John Brady design), Ron Gibbs in his Celebrity class, Doug Oeller and NealBattaler in another Marsh Cat (both of these cats are, I believe, Joel White designs), and Kevin Brennan and Peter Digel in the Welsford Navigator Slip Jig.Delaware River Chapter of the TSCA got together recently for a voyage from Tilghmans Island to Broad Creek on the Chesapeake and back to Tilghmans. Seven (really fine) boats, nine guys and apparently a bushel of crabs worth of pure enjoyment. Throw in a little self made Celtic music and you've got quite a salty stew. Boom tent camping in early June, a two day escapade that has become something of a long standing tradition within the chapter. Chapter president Mike Wick sent me a boatload of photos of this jaunt and I'm only showing a sampling here. The full article appeared in the July Mainsheet, the chapter's newsletter. I just took a look and it's not there yet, but it should soon appear on the Delaware Chapters home page. It has a deeper piece on the trip. Meanwhile, why not join the TSCA? I have, and maybe you'll see me here next year.
