Hello from Baltimore!


long time lurker, first time poster.
Thanks to all the good people that make this online community such a rich source of information.

I recently inherited a carver 3807 aft cabin from a brilliant electrical engineer, who cared nothing for aesthetics, so i've got a lot of cleaning to do, but the important parts are working well. Should be fun.

I'm new to the baltimore area and looking to rent a slip. I'll probably be living aboard it half the time. I'm a software engineer and my work is done remotely, so I'm hoping area marinas will be alright with a liveaboard. Anyway, I'll go post in a more relevant section of the forum for all this.

Thanks again for being a great community!

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Looks like you've got a big beautiful powerboat and I hope some Baltimore area folks will chime in quickly to make you feel at home.

Re: Hello from Baltimore!

No shortage of marinas in Baltimore. I've heard Henderson's wharf had decent pricing at the moment and allows liveaboard ls but no personal experience with them. I'd check them and the couple adjacent ones out.

Thanks for the warm welcome
I'm looking into Henderson's wharf; multiple people have suggested it and the reviews sound pretty solid.

Re: Hello from Baltimore!

Welcome to the forum from another Baltimorean. If you're looking to live downtown also check into the Anchorage in Canton.

I've heard there's a nice marina with an active liveaboard community down in the Magothy River. Not sure of the name right now, maybe someone else will chime in with that.

You might check out White Rocks in Pasadena. I'm not sure where they stand on liveaboards but their prices are good and the facilities are really nice, clean as a whistle. They're pretty understanding of DIYers.

Also, as always I have to recommend Maryland Marina in Middle River. It's friendly, has a good DIY yard, and the facilities are decent.

Enjoy your new project and welcome to Baltimore.

Re: Hello from Baltimore!


I am in the Baltimore area also. I am actually in the boating industry and run a U.S. Coast Guard documentation service business. I am fairly new to this site so guess I better introduce myself formally. If I learn of any marinas, I will also let you know. Like others have mentioned, Henderson may be a good one.
