Chesapeake Bay Magazine's Talk of the Bay

We at Chesapeake Bay Magazine are hard at work on a nice juicy February issue, which will be out in late January. No doubt you're hard at work prepping for the holidays--Christmas shopping, ordering Old Bay flavored vodka for the New Year fete, dropping big fat hints about the exact brand of chartplotter you hope to find under the tree, et cetera. And we've put together a few items that might just help you find gifts for your nautically oriented family and friends. More ideas are available on our online Gear & Gifts section and our marketing department's Nautical Gift Guide. Oh, and we almost forgot...have a wonderful holiday!
