- With oysters showing signs of revival in the Chesapeake Bay, some are trying to bring the bivalves back in the bay's second largest tributary, the Potomac River. Just two years into their fledgling effort to restore the river's once-bountiful oyster population, however, organizers are raising alarms about a large marina proposed in Charles County near the Potomac's largest and formerly most productive oyster bar. The 143-slip marina would provide berths for residents and guests of a 900-acre resort community planned on the waterfront here.

A Florida firm has paid $4.5 million for Pier 7 Marina in Edgewater and plans to transform the property on the South River, which includes Coconut Joe's, into a yacht club. A&S Smith Development, which is the real estate division of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based The Catamaran Group, bought the marina in May, according to online records. While the property at 48 South River Road in Edgewater was not listed for sale, Glenn Sutton, who brokered the deal for PTR Sotheby's International Realty, said A&S Smith Development put in an offer that was too good to refuse.

The man who runs many of Baltimore's marinas, a former captain in the Israeli navy, prefers the sky to the sea. The only boat he owns is a gondola, which he keeps tied up at his marina in Canton. "I love aviation; that's my passion," said Dan Naor, 47, chief operating officer of Baltimore Marine Centers, as he stood next to a cherry-red helicopter on a recent weekday. He flies it - not as often as he'd like - from Pier 7 in Canton, the base of another business he runs, Baltimore Helicopter Services.

Dan Naor got his start in Baltimore 20 years ago, when he found a 16-acre waterfront property for sale and decided to make the leap into the local marina business. Today, the Inner Harbor is a vastly different place than it was in 1994, and Naor's Baltimore Marine Centers operates five marinas in the surrounding area. "In the beginning it was a little rough," said Naor, a native of Israel whose company now acts as an intermediary between Baltimore and some of its most well-heeled guests.

With 140 miles of shoreline and boating access, not only to the upper Chesapeake Bay but also the 5,000-acre impoundment held back by Conowingo Dam, Harford County has many opportunities for boaters and others who enjoy spending time on the water. Though much of the county's shoreline is off limits to the general public because it is part of restricted areas on Aberdeen Proving Ground, the county still boasts several marinas and boat ramps.

In October, Waterfront Partnership's Healthy Harbor Initiative released the State of Baltimore's Harbor Report, an assessment of the current health of Baltimore's Inner Harbor and its surrounding tributaries. According to the study, the water quality received an overall poor score. Anyone walking near the Inner Harbor can see from the bulkhead that the water is littered with trash, debris and pollutants, unfortunately making it unsafe for swimming and fishing. An unsettling contributor to this problem is the fact that of Maryland's 600 marinas, only 25 percent are currently designated as a Maryland Clean Marina by the Department of Natural Resources.
