 2nd place at the Annual Boatyard Catch and Release Rockfish Fishing Tournament!

Congratulations to Philip Plack and Dr. Rosemary, his 1977 Morton & Hersloff, for placing 2nd in the Annual Boatyard Catch and Release Rockfish Fishing Tournament that took place last weekend! Vic Gue, an angler on the boat, brought home the silver with a 43 1/2″ Rockfish.

We acquired this unique little listing in February from CRAB- Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating- and sold her to Plack a month later. With her interesting local history, We knew this sweet boat was destined for stardom.

Upon retiring, Rogers C.B. Morton, a one time Maryland Congressman, and his neighbor, Peter O. Hersloff, turned Morton’s barn along the Wye River into a boat building shop. They built 13 power yachts before a fire destroyed the shop and ended production.

We are happy to see her making a name for herself in Maryland waters!

Bermuda

I’ve been thinking of Bermuda a lot these past few days. One of our brokers, Justin Olewack, just completed his Safety at Sea Seminar for the upcoming Newport to Bermuda race in June, and I am planning a celebratory trip to Bermuda as well. All this talk of Dark and Stormy’s and Tobacco Bay has brought up memories of the first time I touched the warm Bermuda sand.
