2020 Chesapeake Bay Buyboat 16th Annual Reunion Cruise.

The 16th annual reunion tour will be in ports in the Lower part of the Potomac River.

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.
