Good Luck Eric.... No rush on the boat. You are in control until you buy, and if you have a good surveyor you can take your time and make sure you are finding the right boat. Go for it.

As far as the marina, I have never been to National Harbor either, but like Geo said, it's very easy to "move" when you live on a boat. Make it happen and then adjust.... Get the sails set, then trim.

Update: The bank came back on 1984 Jeanneau only willing to finance $59K. That is far from the $83K where the negotiation ended, so that boat is out. There is a very nice 1990 3-cabin Beneteau 41s5 that might meet my needs, and I'll look at it tomorrow. Anyone have any experience with that boat? It is very "modern" inside, which I actually like very much (not everyone's cup of tea, tho), but I haven't been in it yet to get a feel for its comfort as a liveaboard.
