Chestertown School Trows Buyboat Birthday Party

An Eastern Shore school held a birthday celebration for workboats that have spent a combined 370 years on the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The fleet includes the 110-year-old skipjack Elsworth and the Twilight, a 100-year-old workboat. Other boats in the fleet are the Spirit, a 67-year-old workboat, the 54-year-old buyboat Annie D., and the 39-year-old Chester River bateau Ric. The celebration was hosted by the Echo Hill Outdoor School in Chestertown.
