For atmosphere alone, the new waterfront restaurant Barcocina is worth a visit. But you can't eat atmosphere. And the great news is that the food at Barcocina - pronounced bar-co-SEEN-ah, the name is a portmanteau word combining "bar" and "cocina," Spanish for "kitchen" - is excellent. The chef is Marc Dixon, who won praise for his work at Bistro Blanc in Glenelg, and he has fantastic ideas about how to make casual dining inventive, fun and memorable. The concept is tricky.

A search for a 45-year-old man and three children on a 28-foot pleasure craft has been suspended pending further investigation, said a U.S. Coast Guard spokesman. "The fact that we searched for eight hours and nobody found anything — nothing found at the marina, no missing people reported," the search has been suspended, said spokesman Petty Officer 3rd Class Brandyn Hill. The search began when the Coast Guard received a distress call at 2:48 a.m. Saturday, when a man reported that he was on a boat named "Susie Q" and three children were on board.

A $3 million, state-of-the-art pleasure boat storage facility is being built in a marina on Norman Creek in eastern Baltimore County in preparation for a scheduled opening in May. The three-level "boatel" will occupy more than an acre at Sunset Harbor Marina and will have the capacity to store craft up to 40 feet long, said marina co-owner John Polek, who is also president of the Baltimore County Marine Trades Association. Polek said the facility is the first of its kind in Baltimore County.

The Chrysler family owned one. The DuPonts owned several. And a storied 1925 pleasure yacht named the USS Sequoia served eight U.S. presidents, from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Jimmy Carter.Legendary for their elegant designs and excellent craftsmanship sealed with an ornate gold insignia on their bows, the mahogany yachts custom-built in Eastport's Trumpy boatyard have long represented a bygone era of perfection, wealth and living the high life. They were the venues of lavish summer parties with free-flowing champagne and caviar.

The Coast Guard was trying to determine why an unmanned 40-foot pleasure craft sank at a marina near the Inner Harbor early yesterday. The Miss Complextion was discovered underwater at the Anchorage Marina on Boston Street at about 5:30 a.m., said Petty Officer Steven Rogers of the Coast Guard Activities Office in Baltimore. A salvage company managed to raise the wooden vessel by 8:40 p.m. and anchor it at the marina. The boat spilled about 10 gallons of fuel into the harbor, leaving a light sheen that evaporated in the morning sun, Rogers said.
