About PropTalk Magazine

PropTalk Magazine is an Annapolis-based company founded in the summer of 2005 by active Chesapeake Bay boaters. The company produces PropTalk Magazine, a monthly newsprint magazine focused on Chesapeake Bay powerboating and the lifestyle surrounding boating on the Bay. Every issue of PropTalk is distributed at more than 850 carefully-chosen and closely-monitored locations throughout the mid-Atlantic. PropTalk's coverage goes "deep" rather than "wide," and the magazine celebrates the people, places, boats, personalities, and events that make the Chesapeake one of the world's premier boating grounds. We also produce SpinSheet Magazine about Chesapeake Bay sailing and FishTalk Magazine, which is all about fishing on the Chesapeake Bay and beyond. 

Thanks for reading and supporting the Chesapeake Bay's Boating Magazine!
