The Chesapeake is a big place - does one part matter more than another (e.g., air connections)? Depending on how long you want to haul out
, Virginia might have its complications with property taxes
due if the boat becomes a "Virginia boat". Not that MD is much better - stay in the water
(on a mooring
, for example) more than 90 days and you're liable for a use fee sticker, which will set you back 5% of the assessed value. Being on the hard
will probably avoid that but land storage
can be spendy, too. Since you're going to sell the boat, I'd work with the (potential) broker on these details before you arrive.
Naturally, the boating
hotspots (Annapolis, for example) will probably get you more traffic for selling the boat, but you'll pay a premium for being there and Anne Arundel county takes its cut, too. Hauling in, for example, Deale or Galesville (western shore) or Rock Hall or Kent Narrows (eastern shore) isn't too far from "civilization" but not where there's tons of buyer traffic. Ya pays your money
, ya takes your choice...
