Forbes Horton Yachts & Crabs
The fourth of July brings many things to the Chesapeake bay maritime industry. Visitors flock to Annapolis to enjoy the sights and to eat blue crabs at exorbitant prices. Wayward yachters often take the opportunity to casually inspect a few boats while in town and in the right hands can become owners by the 5th (they should have gone for the crabs). With crabs at $100/dozen it is hard not to justify paying for the 50.00 fishing license and to try and fill the steam pot. If you ever see a Fleming 55 running a trot line or an Eastbay 49 hauling traps you can bet a bushel that it's a savvy FHY client enjoying natures bounty.
Well one thing is clear that not every person can own a yacht because it is very expensive, but Buying a yacht is fraught with danger considering that the costs are exorbitant and in spite of the owner’s obvious wealth, perhaps the single largest financial investment they will make.
