Tom, thanks for writing.

Severna Park, MD

After the scrape moves through an area of bay grass what does the grass look like? Does the scrape dig up the grass by the roots or cut the grass off like a lawn mower? What is the impact on the SAV beds after the scrape has been through an area?

Thanks for the question, John.

The scrape does pull up bay grass (mostly eelgrass) as it catches crabs.

However, on this particular trip, most of the stuff that the scrape was pulling up was "red moss" -- believed to be a species of invasive red algae from the Pacific Ocean.

the scrape doesnt rip the grass up persay but i believe it takes up the grass that is dead. So in a sense scraping gleans the eelgrass patches rather destroy them.

The pictures of the boats that have been left in the sand, I am looking for a Lempke stinger 22 to 24 ft crab boat could you help me get in touch with some one that could help me round up a fixer upper that is solid, Thank you, Ryan
