Dumb question about living aboard when it gets that cold, how do you keep the water onboard from freezing? Some marinas in RI allow liveaboards but don't allow electric heaters. I have never kept a boat in the water where I had to worry about freezing.

Re: Liveaboard Marinas around Chesapeake Bay (Baltimore or Annapolis Area)

I used the oil filled electric heaters, others had diesel heaters, like espar . Doesn't take much heat to keep inside of boat above freezing. Bubblers keep water around boat open. They turn the water off on the dock but the water tap at the bath house stayed on. So just wait for a warm day unroll the hose and top off tanks.

Re: Liveaboard Marinas around Chesapeake Bay (Baltimore or Annapolis Area)

If you're still looking feel free to PM me. I'm in a marina called Chester cove which is significantly less than BMC and Anchorage and out water is year round! Huge plus!!!

Re: Liveaboard Marinas around Chesapeake Bay (Baltimore or Annapolis Area)

Since this thread is till active, any suggestions on marinas in close proximity to small towns or communities that allow liveaboards? I've been looking at Havre De Grace but it looks like slips are fairly limited. I'll be working from the boat but would prefer to have some conveniences near by;gym, post office, grocery, dining. 35' boat aiming for under $5k annually, obviously cheaper is always nice but having convenience near by is worth a bit extra in the long run.

Thanks,
Jonathan

Re: Liveaboard Marinas around Chesapeake Bay (Baltimore or Annapolis Area)

My marina is mostly under 4K and is in Baltimore city. Although it's bare bones. Parking included, water and electric, and a slip. That's it. But it's great. Straight shot to 95 to get out of the city.

Re: Liveaboard Marinas around Chesapeake Bay (Baltimore or Annapolis Area)

Anchorage Marina in Baltimore does allow liveaboards, the coop fee is about $500 per quarter, you can buy a 40' slip for $10K.

Great price but I'm unsure if this will be long term yet. I'm relocating for work and may need to go further north in the next year or two.

Edit- if I bought the slip would I still have to pay that $300/mo live aboard fee or does it get waived since I own it?

The liveaboard fee is $100 per month and is only for renters. Members don't pay that fee.

Most liveaboards are renters. Cost per month isn't that much more than a parking space in Canton :-) You can always buy later once you've fallen in love with the unbeatable location :-)

Re: Liveaboard Marinas around Chesapeake Bay (Baltimore or Annapolis Area)

Well the $100 extra isn't that bad and the location does look fantastic. I'll swing out that way next month to look at a few options and hopefully settle on one then.

If you do, PM me. I'm a liveaboard at Anchorage Marina in Baltimore and happy to give you or anyone a tour of the facilities and neighborhood :-)

I did my homework and rented while I saved to buy and it's about the best deal in any city on the East Coast of the US. People pay nearly as much for a parking space in Canton as the marina coop fees :-) Someone picked up a 35ft slip for $6,000 last month! All owned slips are liveaboard slips.

Good luck!

P.S. If you can make it out the first week in April, the Light Festival around the harbor is amazing...

Thank you pickpaul, I'll see if I can arrange my schedule to be out there in early April. The light festival looks fantastic. When I do make it out there I'll make sure to pm you before hand and setup a visit.

I'm at Anchorage too, not as a liveaboard, but usually a couple days during the week. Feel free to contact me if you're going to be down there, I'd be happy to show you around too.
