We hit the water as we explore the people and places around the Chesapeake Bay. We'll get the inside scoop from a first-generation female waterman, and visit a town chock-full of boat builders. Plus, we'll learn why scientists aren't just worried about the future of crabs and oysters, but a certain snake-like fish. And we'll swing by a museum dedicated to the Chesapeake Bay's very own Coney Island.
