I signed aboard in 1977, long before Soundings was a full- featured, award-winning magazine, long before it would pay for subject-matter experts. It was a monthly newspaper covering boat races and boating issues.

Stepping into the living room and seeing the view down the length of the Riviera Canal’s side channel, Mike Jolly knew he had found the house he was seeking. He bought it immediately.
For many years after Rob and Linda Strieger purchased their Annapolis, Md., property on Meredith Creek they enjoyed the 1950s summer cottage and boating.
In 1991 they expanded and rebuilt the cottage from the foundation up, creating a year-round, 2,600-square-foot contemporary home on their 0.3-acre property. In 2008 they redid the kitchen and bathrooms.
