Chesapeake Bounty 2 Sharps Island Light Print

The 1997 companion piece in this 4-piece Chesapeake Bounty series, Chesapeake Bounty 2 shows the portside outer quarter of the crabber’s workboat stern deck looking out over the wake to Sharpe’s Island Light in the mouth of the Choptank River.  Part of a 4-part print grouping showcases landmarks that span 40 miles on the Chesapeake Bay.

A bit about Sharps Island Light from www.chesapeakelights.com:

Located off the entrance to the Choptank River, approximately 4 miles from the the southern most tip of Tilghman Island. It is a cast iron cassion filled with concrete with a brick lined cast iron tower built on top. It was first lit in February of 1882. The previous light on this spot was a screw pile light completed in 1865. It lasted until February 10, 1881 when, during a winter thaw, the wind driven ice swept the building from the screw pile and it floated 5 miles down the bay, with the keeper inside. It ran aground and the keeper escaped. In the winter of 1976-1977, severe ice flows tilted the tower 15 degrees.

The perfect gift or home decor piece for the Marylander, crab lover, boater, sport fisherman or fisherwoman!
