Chesapeake, VA

BEWARE, along the AICW in Chesapeake, VA. Because someone wanted in the lock first and sent his police friend I was cited for a wake disturbance in my sailboat! Later a bridge operator asked over the VHF: "Are you the sailboat that went through the lock?" I will avoid the area in the future.

This doesn't sound like fun recreation entertainment or fun.

I don't follow your post - what happened? You passed another boat or exited before another boat or..?

Re: Chesapeake, VA

Need more info. Did you go into the lock without being told to?
They have an order to things and don't like it changed.
That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life.

Re: Chesapeake, VA

After 15 minutes...I'm sure the world stopped caring.

No need to avoid the area...tens of thousands of boats pass without issue every year.

Probability of a future issue is tiny.
