catamaran slip available in Annapolis

A slip across from ours is available, it's expensive, probably around 12k per year, but the marina is one of the very few that has a nice large yard available for parties, kids playing, etc. Most marinas are basically slips and parking lots. It can hold anything up to about 26 ft wide and a bit over 45 ft in length. Annapolis Landing Marina -on the Chesapeake Bay - Annapolis, Maryland, offering quality services with a yacht club atmosphere..

Appreciate the heads up.

It amazes me how much slips go for in that area of the Bay - not to mention how much it costs to bring a boat into Maryland. Crazy.

It is about Location, Location. Heading south to Deale one Marine wanted 10K a very nice one next door wanted 4,200, but they didn't have anything avalaible. So we went further south and now we are in a nice Marine, T-head slip in Solomons, MD for 2200 a year.

The drive is a little longer from where we live in VA but not that much to make it worth paying and extra 10 grand.

Hi Capt Bill - we might have seen you when we spent a night in Mill Creek on the 13th of this month - passing thru to Georgetown for the winter from Norfolk. We'll have a shorter "commute" until spring.

Couldn't agree more with the logic of trading $$ for drive time.

Agreed, if we weren't full time live-aboards with a child and working in the DC area, Annapolis wouldn't make sense. Actually, having a huge boat wouldn't make any sense if we weren't also planning on leaving and going cruising in a couple years. Both are huge money pits. There are other places in Annapolis where you could get a much cheaper slip, but it has no green space for kids or pets. And there a lots of places in Maryland with much cheaper slips, but the driving time for work, preschool, shopping would be huge. As a catamaran we're also paying for two slips....

That makes sense, Dogman.

We're Va. residents living in Arlington and docked our boat in Norfolk principally for tax reasons (not to mention not being enamored with Potomac River cruising ). We can stomach the commutes until going full time long range cruising in spring 09.

Norfolk recently significantly raised their boat tax rates, so we won't be going back full time next spring. Trying for a spot in Hampton.

The drive

That was why we were originally in Deale. 45 minute drive from our home in Mclean, VA. When we came back we wanted to be there again and acutally spent the winter tied up a a T head at herrington hoping to be able to get an opening. The boats were expected to leave changed there minds. 4K is no 2K, but it is not 10-12K. We settled for the drive.


PS
I am jealous....we are tied to the dock instead of heading south again.
