THE QUESTION: HOW MANY BOAT RAMPS ARE OWNED BY ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY?

None, for now. But the Department of Recreation and Parks is seeking to build the first in northern Anne Arundel, on 232 acres of parkland donated by the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, by 2008.

A slew of private ramps exist along the county's 534 miles of shoreline, but only three public launches exist: Sandy Point State Park, and Annapolis' Truxtun Park and West Annapolis boat ramps.

The precise location of the boat ramp has yet to be determined on the donated parkland, which sits within a half-mile of Baltimore-owned Fort Smallwood Park, on the shore of the Patapsco River.
