Question Sea safe - anyone use it?

I boat with the family on the Chesy Bay. We like to anchor up and swim during summer, but the sea nettles (jelly fish) come out mid/late summer. I came across this stuff today while at CVS and I bought a bottle.

Does anyone have any experience using Sea Safe and does it work?

There was a LONG thread on this a while back. I bought some "StingMate" but fortunately have not had to use it yet.

We usually hit the back-side of Dobbins Island which is just inside the mouth of the Magothy river. It's a pretty popular place to anchor up off the beach in the summer. It can get pretty crowded during the summer, but it's a great place to people/boat watch while the kids swim or explore the beach area.

Where on the bay do you typically boat?

If that stuff works I'll bet the Aussies would love to have it for fending off their Box Jellyfish.........they're sting is almost always fatal unless treated within a couple of minutes......

I believe the new owners of Dobbins have constructed a fence to keep folks off the beach. There are also a couple nice beaches up the Chester River, too.

Usually around the Tangier Sound, but it's about equal distance to SPSP, so i can put off there as well.
I'd like to explore some new areas this summer, found some good looking "beachy" spots on the Choptank that i'd like to check out as well.

Yeah, i believe i saw that posted on Tidalfish as well. That's ashame, looks like a cool place to beach the boat, and i could have put off at Sandy Point State Park.

Sounds like he needs to invest in a security team and run all the trash throwers off. Maybe a few high quality cameras with live feed to a central location would help. At least catch some of the trash leaving slime balls. Sad to see where people just throw down their trash and mess it up for all the good people. If it bacame state property and was made into a state park there would be all types of new rules.

Well, I think the real reason he put the fence up at Dobbins was because he wants to build a house on it and because of the current situation with the house illegally built on Little Island, in that cove, the Magothy River Association went to court and blocked it. So he said "OK, F YOU GUYS! And stay off my island!!" It is currently being reviewed by the courts as to whether the MRA has any grounds to "block" the construction.
