Billy Jackson was sure he was going to fall overboard when he stepped onto the Lady Maryland Monday morning -- after all the ship's rails consisted only of tightly stretched ropes.But when he walked back on land after cruising the Chesapeake Bay for five hours, he had not only developed "sea legs," but had also learned about the history, economics and ecology of the bay -- and, most important, about team work."I never realized how much cooperation and team effort are needed to run a big ship like this," said Billy while he and a classmate were taking their turn at the ship's wheel, watching the compass and trying their best to keep the 104-foot vessel on course.

Like it or not, everything succumbs to rot. So there was little surprise when some of the galvanized steel nails that hold together the schooner Lady Maryland failed a Coast Guard inspection two months ago. Or when some of the timbers in the bow showed signs of decay. "She's 25 years old and she's in need of a little TLC," Capt. Michael Fiorentino said Tuesday, as he watched the vessel glide slowly into dry dock at Chase's Wharf in Fells Point. The vessel will slide back into the water in mid-March after a $180,000 makeover by shipwrights and eager volunteers.

Havre de Grace eighth-graders did everything but sing sea chanteys Tuesday when they sailed from the Tide Water Marina in Havre de Grace on the Lady Maryland, one of two educational vessels operated by the Lady Maryland Foundation. The 30 eighth-grade students all wrote 100-word essays about why they should be chosen to sail. The best essays earned their authors a spot on the boat.Once on the boat, the students were divided into groups -- watermen, industrialists, developers, environmentalists and recreational users.

Mathilde B. "Mimi" Lee, who as the wife of Lt. Gov. Blair Lee III eschewed the political pomp and circumstance of Annapolis for the fields and woods where she could hike, canoe and swim, died Tuesday of congestive heart failure at Laurel Regional Hospital. The Silver Spring resident was 91. Mathilde Boal was named for her paternal grandmother, who was related to Christopher Columbus. Her father, Pierre de Lagarde Boal, was an American diplomat who had served as ambassador to Nicaragua and Bolivia.

Baltimore's Inner Harbor was the scene of a 19th-century-style traffic jam yesterday, with more than 30 schooners sailing back and forth, their sails billowing, crews hauling on lines, the coppery evening sun reflecting off their crisscrossing wakes. The rally of wooden ships served as the opening ceremonies for the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race. The two-masted ships will race from Annapolis to Norfolk, Va., starting at 1:30 p.m. today, sailing through the night to raise money for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.

Among collectors of cookbooks, former Maryland first lady Helen Avalynne Tawes' "My Favorite Maryland Recipes," a paean to old-fashioned Maryland cooking, is a highly-sought-after item. And it is considered good fortune if one turns up a copy of the work, first published in 1964 by Random House, in a yard sale or on the shelf of a used book store. Tawes, a Crisfield native, was married in 1915 to J. Millard Tawes, the governor from 1959 to 1967. He died in 1979. Known as Lou to close friends, she studied music at the Peabody Conservatory in Mount Vernon Place and later sang on a Salisbury radio station.

On deck once more is G. Peter Boudreau, skipper of the resurrection.Look for him tomorrow morning aboard the U.S.S. Constellation, a leaking, rotting, sagging, 142-year-old hulk of timbers that happens to be considered one of the country's most important historic naval vessels. He's the husky, mustachioed blond guy, the one who usually seems so calm and collected. He'll be in charge when a tugboat pulls the ship through the Inner Harbor ever so slowly, slower than a Sunday stroll through Harborplace.
