The gashed hull of a Boston whaler tells Cpl. Dennis W. Leland that a terrible hit-and-run accident occurred last weekend on the Chesapeake Bay, leaving a mother and son dead.But there are few other clues to what happened a week ago near the mouth of the Choptank River in an accident that killed a sister-in-law and nephew of Montgomery County Executive Neal Potter.Evidence does not tell police where the accident occurred. Or how it happened. Or even what type of boat hit the Boston whaler -- it could be as small as a motorboat or as large as an oil tanker.

Fishing and boats go together -- but not all boats go with all kinds of fishing, and finding the perfect match can be an interminable struggle or a life-long passion.The United States Powerboat Show in Annapolis Oct. 14-17 is a great place to ease the struggle or refuel the passion.Whether your plans include bottom fishing for perch in a tidal creek or heading offshore to the canyons for billfish, there will be scads of suitable boats on display.Boston Whaler, Pursuit, Grady-White and Legacy Yachts are among the seasoned manufacturers who have new models that should be of interest to inshore and offshore fishermen with upper-middle incomes and too few hours in the day for fishing.

One can hardly blame the boating public for feeling a bit of sticker shock at news that the Maryland Department of Natural Resources wants to triple registration fees for most boaters. The recession has hit the boating industry hard, gas prices are up, and the General Assembly is already considering a number of taxes and fees to balance the state's budget next year. But there's only one thing the legislature could do to Maryland boaters to make life on the water even worse, and that would be to do nothing at all. Like Odysseus, the DNR is trapped between Scylla and Charybdis with no pain-free choices available.

Until a week ago, 16-year-old Abbey Jankalski had never been on a Jet Ski. Heading out Saturday into North Point Creek on her uncle's Kawasaki, she was still, literally and figuratively, getting her feet wet. But with practice came confidence, so she stepped on the gas to see what the machine could do. And that's when Officer Gregory Jilek of the Maryland Natural Resources Police, patrolling the creek off Sparrows Point and the Chesapeake Bay, activated...

Daly, 32, and Louis W. Hill 3rd, 23, both of Mechanicsville, were pulled from the Calvert County side of the river about eight miles apart yesterday by a DNR officer in a Boston whaler after a caller notified the Calvert County Sheriff's Office that he saw two bodies floating in the water.

Dennis W. Leland said in a news conference at the Tawes State Office Building in Annapolis that police found iron filings and paint chips typical of commercial barges on the whaler, but no wood or fiberglass residue that would have come from a recreational boat.

A blip of time ago, 30 years, my father drove the family to the Florida Keys. The trip took just under three hours. I was 7.In January, I drove my family to the Keys from my old Fort Lauderdale home. The trip took just under three hours. My boy is 7.The symmetry probably means something. Whatever. I just thought I'd superimpose the Best of My Childhood onto my children. Take them to the same vacation spot -- to the same restaurants, piers, same Theater of the Sea attraction, same Shell World shop.
