Yacht Basin at Sunset (1950) Ocean City, Maryland (Paul McGehee)
[Hand-Signed]
$150.00

"Yacht Basin at Sunset (1950) - Ocean City, Maryland" by Paul McGehee. In 1933 a major hurricane struck the town of Ocean City. As buildings were torn asunder in the gale, the Atlantic Ocean surf ripped across the beach, forming a new channel of water later known as the Ocean City Inlet. What was originally looked upon as a natural disaster turned into a great asset, as there was now easy access by boat from the waters of Sinepuxent Bay out to the Atlantic and a safe harbor for oceangoing fishing boats. Soon, deep sea fishing became a financial boon to Ocean City. The sport fishing docks and the Yacht Basin, located on the bayside of the famous Maryland beach resort near the bridge, became a haven for charter fishing boats and sportsmen's yachts which would venture out into the Atlantic seeking everything from flounder to big sport fish like marlin and bluefish. In the late 1940s and early 50s, headboats such as "Answer" (so named because a rival headboat was named "Question Mark") would take people out for a day of fishing and fun. "Answer" can be seen in the foreground of this view from the bridge into town, as can the "Pisces" off in the distance towards the right. At the Talbot Street Pier towards the left you can see Captain Bunting's docks and the Bunting family's venerable Angler Restaurant, which has been there for over 75 years. Towards the middle of the scene is the Dorchester Street Marina as you look south. At Somerset Street beyond and to the right was the Magee Yacht Basin. The smell of the salt air brings back fond memories of Ocean City, the "White Marlin Capital of the World." "Yacht Basin at Sunset (1950) - Ocean City, Maryland" is faithfully reproduced as an archival-quality print from McGehee's original color pencil drawing issued in a limited edition of only 500 pieces, each hand-signed and numbered by the artist. Print image size: 11 1/8" x 18 1/8".
