“This film, as you know, is the untold story of Klingel, a Chesapeake Bay pioneer, naturalist, author, diver, and boat builder. Klingel accomplished so many things in his lifetime that his story needs to be told as an educational, historical, and inspirational film to folks today.”  – Dave Miller, Director/Producer
