MAKE A MARK: Help Marker Nine Support Public Access and Recreation Along the Waterways of the Middle Peninsula
From now until May 15, 2019 a portion of all sales from MarkerNine.com (10% to be exact) will be donated to the Middle Peninsula Chesapeake Bay Public Access Authority. Why is this important?

If you ask Mike Silberhorn (ahem…that’s Dick McKee to those of you who know him best), he’ll tell you straight: the perfect day starts with easing through Sarah’s Creek on his boat with his feet kicked up, Natty Light in hand (wrapped in a Marker Nine coozie, of course) and wife and three kiddos by his side.
And that’s exactly what Marker Nine is all about…family, laid back, coastal living.
Although born in Radford, VA, Mike was raised in Gloucester, VA, birthplace of Marker Nine the company and the Channel Marker Nine that inspired it all.
