2014 Chesapeake Bay Buyboat 10th Annual Reunion Cruse.

The 10th annual reunion tour will start in Leonardtown, MD on August 2nd and 3rd.  Leonardtown will host the 2014 Annual Cruise in this unique town on Brenton Day. The boats will be open for the public to come aboard and touch a part of history.

These unique craft that were used to haul seafood and cargo using the Chesapeake Bay waterways before many of the peninsulas were connected by bridges.  As the seafood harvest declined and highways became the mode of travel the large graceful buyboats faded from local waters.  There are, perhaps, not more than 30 of the oyster buyboats remaining on the Bay.

The Chesapeake Bay Buyboat Association is comprised of owners and people who share the love of these big boats. The  owners maintain and operate the remaining buyboats at their own expense.  The owners bring their boats to ports around the Bay each summer so that the public can stand on the decks, touch them and understand their importance in history.

Attending Up The Potomac River Cruise from Maryland and the northern fleet will be Old Point, Nellie Crockett, Thomas J., Muriel Eileen, P.E. Pruitt, Ellen Marie.  Those buyboats from the southern fleet as of today include Potomac River boats the Miss Trudy, Shamrock, Samuel M. Bailey, PropWash, Iva W, F. D Crockett, Emmett H, Veteran, 55th Virginia and Pappa Francis.
