Saving a Chesapeake Bay Skipjack/Creating Transit for All

June

2012

Decades ago, there were hundreds of skipjacks, or commercial oyster-dredging boats, working the Chesapeake Bay. Today, there are just five. But the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels is working to rebuild one of those boats in what will be a years-long process. Reporter Brian Shane brings us the story. Then, we look at Medtrn, a transit system for elderly and disabled residents on the coast. We'll find out what's being done to keep it going following the death of the 92-year-old man who spearheaded it.
