Chesapeake Bay Skipjack
Gordon, Elbert, and David Gladden and Cody Donalds replace deck boards on the Chesapeake Bay Skipjack, Ida May. Gordon and Elbert tell a story about how as young men on a mudlark, Gordon fell waist deep into quicksand-like mud and had to be rescued by quick thinking Elbert. For lunch today, Gordon treated everyone to a oyster fritter at the Deal Island Volunteer Fire Co. and boy was it tasty. Wesley Price comes down to Scott's Cove Marina to watch the Gladdens work. Wesley and the Gladdens discuss the finer points of oyster fritters and how Rock Crickers use mustard on their fritters.
