on the Chesapeake knows the usual spots like behind Hart Miller Island where boaters congregate to break out the barbecue grill
and take a dip in the water
on sunny weekends during the summer. But almost every captain
also knows a few local anchorages
where they can drop anchor
or just raft up with a few friends when they want to avoid the crowds too. (THOSE are what I'm looking for).
I'm attempting to create a comprehensive Google
Map of shallow "sandy", (not mud, muck, or rocky), anchorages
around the bay. The kind of place where you can anchor
and everyone on board can jump off and stand barefoot in chest deep water
(4'-5') on a sandy bottom with a sandy walk up shoreline.
What I'm looking for are either lat long coords or very specific location descriptions that you have a first hand knowledge of along with a short sentence or two describing the best way to anchor there, how crowded it gets (or doesn't get) during the summer months, and any unique characteristics of the location.
