    Don't lose your boat! Read through our article, linked below, about Maryland maritime liens. This is an area familiar to many of us practicing along the Chesapeake Bay. See you on the water!

  2. You have a lien, because it is inconvenient to pay? If you want to have your boat stored, pay the fee.

  3. You left a credit card. Were you charged ? Did management or ownership if the yard change?
