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.

CBS yesterday completed its announcer pairings for the coming NFL season, leaving two longtime football voices on the bench while adding sideline reporters for their first two teams.Given the challenge of making its coverage of the AFC different from that of NBC, CBS passed over longtime NBC veterans like Charlie Jones and Bob Trumpy, for newcomers like New York-based Ian Eagle and former Buffalo special teams player Steve Tasker."We wanted to forge our own way and go in a different direction," CBS executive producer Terry Ewert said yesterday.

LAST WEEK, I started talking about neat old boats, and once I've started on one of my favorite topics, it's hard to stop. There are lots of neat old boats coming to Annapolis Harbor for Father's Day weekend. The one thing these boats have in common is that they were built by John Trumpy & Sons.Eastport maritime historian Mike Miron has been working on the "Trumpy Rendezvous" since December. The event, appropriately titled, "Honor Thy Father: A Tribute to John Trumpy & Sons," is co-sponsored by Annapolis and the Barge House Museum in Eastport.

It's no surprise that the Trumpy is called the Rolls Royce of powerboats.No two were built alike. They are as distinctive as their modern counterparts, the nine Whitbread Round the World sailing boats, are sleek and Spartan.From the towering smokestacks to the gilded, decorative T embossed on the bow, Trumpys are the elegant wood masterpieces created by John Trumpy and Sons, designer and builder of luxury yachts for the rich, famous and presidential in Annapolis until a quarter-century ago.In a rare moment of old meets new, organizers of the Whitbread's visit to sailing-crazed Annapolis coaxed the Trumpys back home.

Viewers who tuned into yesterday's Ravens-New York Giants game lying in wait for Bob Trumpy or expecting NBC to explore ramifications of the move from Cleveland didn't get either.There have been, and will be, lots of words about the Team Formerly Known As The Cleveland Browns, but those words would have been wasted on a preseason game whose audience will be dramatically smaller than that of a regular-season contest in a few weeks.In other words, as the comedians say, why waste your A material on a B audience?

Hey, c'mere. I got a hot tip from the track. Keep this under your hat. What? You don't have a hat? Never mind. Here's the tip: Bet the ranch dressing on Pine Bluff in the Preakness. Or is that just bet the ranch?Anyway, this tip is from a guy who's called the winner for 14 straight Preaknesses. Got that? Pine Bluff in the Preakness. Here, put $2 down for me. Why just $2? I don't have any ranch dressing on me.OK, enough about salad dressing. The fact is that ABC's Dave Johnson, the network's race caller and analyst, likes Pine Bluff in tomorrow's Preakness (4:30 p.m., channels 13, 7)

Fact: The Orioles have traded 10 minor-leaguers in the past 15 months: Garrett Stephenson, Calvin Maduro, Scott Klingenbeck, Joe Borowski, Brad Pennington, Rachaad Stewart, Curtis Goodwin, Alex Ochoa, Damon Buford and Gregg Zaun.Opinion: They won't miss many of those players, but if they keep up this policy of trading prospects, one of these days the Orioles will break down like the Detroit Tigers.Fact: From 1990 to '95, Eddie Murray had the highest September/October batting average (.335)

Sandwiched around Michael Jackson's halftime performance -- by the way, did you think he lip-synced (lip-syncked? lip-sanc?) -- NBC was carrying a football game last night. At least, it was supposed to be a game.We can't blame NBC for another stinker of a Super Bowl, but the network didn't distinguish itself in the first half, before the rout was on.For instance, NBC never did tell the audience that most fundamental of facts: who was playing at what position. It's a simple thing, a graphic that lists the players.

Here's an explanation for what happened to the Dallas Cowboys in the first half of yesterday's Super Bowl:It took them until halftime to realize that the national anthem finally was over.However, the audience can be thankful that, for a change, the game wasn't over until the fourth quarter.After making it through two hours of pre-game programming, the viewer's reward was an odd game opening in which two stripped-to-the-waist football players banged on anvils in something that looked like a photo shoot for a romance-novel cover.
