    So JB was in Annapolis this weekend with 3 boats heading south. A strange looking fat ass sailboat, a handsome (Delta?) tri deck and a express sport fish with a tower. Looks like he has all his boat basis covered.
    The local press said he is filming and singing in many stops before ending up in the Bahamas.

    Saw him roll out of Block Island early this summer in that sailboat. Unusual looking for sure. He was on island doing some surfing.

    He doesn't own the Delta any longer. I wonder if it was a charter, as I'm not aware he has a larger M/Y

    Yep, I passed his Freeman / Rybovich sitting at the Yacht Basin marina on my way to South Annapolis Yacht Centre from the Great Lakes on a Pershing. Pretty good looking boat from what I could see.

    The motor yacht was a matching color to the SF and sailboat. Had a modified Drifter name . I could not locate her on AIS.

    Pretty sure the Freeman was customized by Merritt.

    while JB was on Chesapeake (on FB pics of his boat at Thomas Point Lighthouse and also pics of him on the circular walking deck on the lighthouse) a 125 - 150 ft motor yacht (same hull color as the Freeman/Merritt) was anchored directly across Bay on south side of Eastern Bay so perhaps also part of his fleet
