Here's a shout for Wormley Creek Marina near Yorktown. Very helpful yard, friendly to DIYers, good rates, and protected docks and haulout.
Lots to do in the immediate area (Yorktown Battlefield, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown), as well as the Mariner's Museum, Hampton Air and Space Museum, Fort Eustis Army Transportation Museum, etc. Easy travel to Richmond and Norfolk airports, and Newport
News (limited flights) is 15 minutes.
Plus, you don't have to spend a day or two heading up the Chesapeake - the York River is right near the Atlantic entrance. There is more to the Chesapeake than Baltimore and Annapolis...
