Sailboat friendly marina on South river?

I need recommendations where I can pull my stick and put my boat on a trailer.
The marina (unamed) where my boat is currently located is clueless about sailboats. They want to charge more than their per foot rate to haul my boat because it is a sailboat.
I would like to find a marina fairly close on the South River near Annapolis, MD where I could possibly pull my own stick ie. a hand operated crane, and haul it.
Where do you recommend?

Casa Rio on the Rhode River or Galesville Yacht Yard on the West River

Re: Sailboat friendly marina on South river?

Liberty on the South River right next to Rt2 bridge is ok. Not sure many spots outside of dinghy clubs such as SSA or WRSC will let you use their gin poles/cranes on your own though.

Re: Sailboat friendly marina on South river?

Holiday Point Marina is in Selby Bay (Edgewater, MD), near the mouth and on the south side of the South River. Lots of sailboats over there. Decent docks, several marine services on site. I have no first-hand experience with 'em, though. They've got a website.

We're next door, but don't have the necessary depth...

Selby Bay Marina, just slightly north of Holiday Point, may have some sailors; I know they have several covered sheds with powerboats, but I think they have some open slips, too.

Pier 7 Marina is also on the South River and the Rt 2 (Solomons Island Rd) bridge, across from Liberty (mentioned above), and there are several sailboats there... and there's a catamaran broker/dealer of some sort there, too.

The South River Bridge clearance is decent, so depending on your mast height, you could also maybe look at a couple of the marina's on the northeast side of the bridge.

Check Active Captain and some satellite or Google Earth imagery for additional possibilities in the area (Pocohontas Creek, etc.).
