Along most of America's coastline, crustaceans get boiled. Sometimes in plain old Yankee water. Sometimes in spicy Cajun stock. Whatever the liquid, there's a whole pot of it bubbling away. Whatever the seafood - Maine lobster, Carolina blue crab, Louisiana crawfish - it takes the plunge. And that's just wrong. Ask anyone in Maryland, where there's just one way to cook a crab. That way is steaming. "I think we're pretty much the main steamers as far as I know," said John Shields, chef-owner of Gertrude's restaurant and author of several books on coastal cooking, including "The Chesapeake Bay Crab Cookbook.

Gunning's Crab House has escaped the claws of public auction.The owners of the South Baltimore landmark at 3901 S. Hanover St. reached an agreement with their mortgage holder yesterday and averted an auction that was scheduled next week for the property.That means Gunning's will not be forced to close next week and will continue to sell its award-winning crab cakes and fried pepper rings covered with powdered sugar."I'm very happy. This is wonderful news," said Edward Gunning, who started the crab house with his dad 22 years ago.Laurel Federal Savings Bank agreed yesterday to accept installments through the summer from the Gunning family to pay off its $160,000 mortgage, Gunning's lawyer, Howard Heneson, said.

I won a crab picking contest. Me, a guy who was born in Kansas, and grew up believing "seafood" was fish sticks. Me, who once thought a crab hammer was something you put in your tool box. Me, who wouldn't know a crab knife from a putty knife, pulled 7 1/4 ounces of meat and some shell from about four crabs in three minutes to win the First Annual Preakness Crab Picking Contest Monday at Harborplace.I have the placard for my wall, and the cuts on my hand to prove it.I should remember that this was not a contest for crab-picking pros.

Despite its name, there is nothing dire about the Dead End Saloon in Fells Point . In fact, it is quite a lively spot, even on a weeknight. The establishment's name stems not from its atmosphere, nor its clientele, but from its location. It sits on a cobblestone way, Fell Street, that ends abruptly at the water. If you attempted to travel beyond Fell Street, you would meet an unfortunate watery demise. When the saloon added a kitchen in the late 1990s, the "Pelican Grille" was added to its full name.

Smith Island's crab pickers have won a reprieve from a threatened state crackdown on their traditional but unlicensed cottage industry. Now all they need are some crabs to pick.Nelson J. Sabatini, the state health secretary, announced yesterday that the state had signed a consent order with 17 women from Tylerton, the smallest of three villages on the Chesapeake Bay island that depend on crabbing and fishing for a livelihood.The agreement, filed this week in Somerset County Circuit Court, allows the women -- watermen's wives and widows -- to continue picking crab meat at home, provided they build a processing plant by Oct. 15 that will comply with state rules.

Dining at the Cheshire Crab reinforces the notion that appearances often can be deceiving.Our object lesson began with the drive to the restaurant. As we turned off Fort Smallwood Road and drove down a series of residential streets, my dinner companions expressed doubts about my navigational skills. However, when the restaurant's well-lighted sign appeared on our right, they immediately became believers.When we walked onto the expansive deck of the restaurant, which overlooks Main Creek and a marina, and saw people in shorts at picnic tables picking at piles of crabs, we had the feeling we were in the wrong place.

Warning of a "crisis brewing" over dwindling female blue crabs in Chesapeake Bay, Gov. Parris N. Glendening yesterday called for emergency restrictions on crabbing starting this fall.He proposed regulations effective Sept. 15 that would limit recreational and commercial crabbing to five days a week, banning catch on Wednesday and Sunday. He also proposed closing the crab season six weeks early, on Nov. 15.Crabbing is now allowed seven days a week from April 1 through Dec. 31.Next year, the governor said, he would seek to ban crabbing one day a week all season long and halt the recreational and commercial harvest even earlier, on Oct. 31.Taken together, he said, the new restrictions should reduce the harvest of female crabs by 40 to 45 percent, bringing the catch back to 1990-1992 levels.

What Baltimore needs is:* Cable cars that could carry people high in the air over the Inner Harbor, from Federal Hill to Pier 6 and back again.* An aviary for Baltimore orioles and a petting zoo for Maryland terrapins.* A giant crab sculpture made from a series of grassy knolls on Rash Field, mounded so that people would be able to make out the crab shape only if they stood at the top of Federal Hill.Those are just a few of the widely divergent ideas proposed yesterday by some of the nation's most talented architects, landscape architects and artists.

It felt good to be one of nearly 1,000 people who took a nostalgic trip down memory lane Wednesday evening at Martin's West. The occasion was a fund-raiser for the Door, an inner city ministry founded by former Colts tackle Joe Ehrmann.And what a reunion it was, as nearly 80 former Baltimore Colts greeted each other and adoring fans. The players were here, at their own expense, for the half-time show at Thursday night's game between the New Orleans Saints and the Miami Dolphins and to attend Ehrmann's fund-raiser.
