Crazy Joe’s opens

Since my November arrival in Oriental, I have met three Annapolitan sailors. S/V Nepenthe and s/v Polaris sailed here specifically for yard work.

Joe, the third sailor, anchored in the harbor and bought the marine consignment store. The store had been open intermittently over the previous several months. The seller suggested that success required someone familiar with the internet of which he was not.

It is packed bulkhead to bulkhead with nautical treasures and several dozen sails.
