ball in Annapolis
is about $25 a night! You might call the harbormaster and see if they will give you a monthly rate.
I lived aboard years ago at Herrington Harbor North, this is a really great facility with excellent services and a west marine
onsite! Can't get much better for getting a boat ready. The only issue will be if they have enough draft
to get you in and out. I would call.
Alternatively Herrington Harbor South is more of the "resort style" and costs a bit more, less time to the open water
and deeper water
all the way in if memory serves.
I also really liked various marinas
in the Solomon's Island area.
Keep in mind that since sailing is a 6/9 months of the year thing in Maryland
the cost for month to month slips is generally setup such that 4 to 5 months of month to month fees
equals the yearly charge. The reason is that many boats spent half of the year out of the water and so marinas
are empty during the winter.
An interesting alternative is to haul out
for the time you are doing work and it will be MUCH less expensive.
