A skipjack returns to Annapolis. Not everyone is happy.

This was supposed to be a triumphant summer for the Wilma Lee, bought by the Annapolis Maritime Museum four years ago. It is the only vessel of its kind in Maryland’s state capital since the Chesapeake Bay Foundation sold the Stanley Norman in 2020. A lease with the city was intended to return this symbol of Chesapeake heritage to City Dock — the waterfront public square of Annapolis — and boost private charters to help keep it afloat.
