I like to boat in  Elk River; it's a River.

It's near  Elkton, Maryland, and Northeast, Maryland

It has the following characteristics:  Wide, usually calm, deep as far as the Bohemia River and the Chesapeake and Delaware Canals. Numerous marinas; excellent public ramp at Elk Neck State Park.

Watch out for  Heavy traffic during boating season. Strong currents at Town Point, where Elk and Bohemia meet. Past entrance to C&D canal, become shallow, especially to the eastern side of the river. Larger boats should observe channel markers.

I like to boat in  The Chesapeake and its tributaries; it's a Bay.

It's near  Rock Hall

It has the following characteristics:  I keep my boat at a wonderful marina on Langford Creek off the Chester River near Rock Hall, MD. Rock Hall is about 5 minutes by car, but over an hour by (power) boat. There are numerous ramps around Kent County Maryland for those who trailer their boat; however, County ramps require a permit. Out of state boaters will find those permits difficult to obtain. There are a few private ramps around, one located in Chestertown will accommodate boats up to 20'.

Watch out for  Currents are not a problem unless you travel through Kent Narrows when the tide is running. In those situations, caution is required when traveling under or near the bridges. The Narrows can be a busy place on weekends and is routinely patrolled by the Maryland DNR. Speed limits are strictly enforced. As with any area of the Chesapeake, keep an eye out for summer thunderstorms. They can come up quickly and can be quite severe.

I like to boat in  Puget Sound; it's a ocean.

It's near  Seattle

It has the following characteristics:  An extensive protected body of salt water extending into Canada, west of Vancouver Island. This inside passage continues to Alaska.

Watch out for  We have never gone beyond the northern tip of Vancouver Island, but many boats take this route all the way to Alaska.
