2018 Nautical Gift Guide


Looking for something for the boater on your shopping list? Winter can be a tough time for boaters on the Chesapeake—stuck on the unfamiliar land, staring off into the Bay or huddled by the fireplace reading chandlery catalogs, waiting, just waiting, for the day when the frost recedes, the shrink wrap comes off, the ice melts, and they will be free again to explore their preferred habitat for another summer.

 Whether they’re the practical type or a more fanciful marine recreation enthusiast, you can find something in our nautical gift guide to tempt them in from standing, forlorn, at the dockside and help them through these trying times with a gentle reminder that spring is just around the corner.
