From 300 yards out, Capt. Bill Fish "saw trouble" bearing down on a boat of fishermen anchored nearby. A speeding cabin cruiser with no one at the helm seemed locked on the fishermen's position. "I called to Jimmy ... and then I yelled on the radio," said the veteran Tilghman Island charter captain, recalling yesterday's accident at the mouth of the Choptank River. "There was no hope." Capt. Jim Brincefield leaned on the horn in a futile effort to alert the 46-foot boat coming at him. On board, his nine customers, friends from the Washington area, pumped their arms in the air and hollered.

"I feel lucky, oh oh oh, I feel lucky, yeah No tropical depression gonna steal my sun away Mmmmm, I feel lucky today" THE LYRICS TO that Mary Chapin Carpenter song danced in my head Thursday as the Jil Carrie parted from the dock at Happy Harbor, bow pointed toward the Chesapeake Bay. Overhead was a thoroughfare of gray clouds running south to north with tiny potholes of blue sky poking through. Ophelia was doing her drunken dance about 300 miles down the coast, lurching to shore, then veering away, but pretty much in the same spot.

IT'S A SUMMER DAY on the Chesapeake Bay. A fishing boat is anchored at a well-known spot. The owner of a bigger boat, moving at a good clip, approaches from behind, believing he is overtaking a moving vessel. The operator of the larger boat should: a) slow down and figure out what's going on; b) slow down and give the smaller boat a wide berth; c) slow down and try to raise the other boat by radio or horn; d) party on, Garth. If eyewitnesses, including Coast Guard-licensed skippers, are to be believed, the operator of the large boat chose a variation on "d" on July 7. Natural Resources Police officers are still investigating the ramming of the charter boat Jil Carrie by the cabin cruiser Price Pirate.
