Live Aboard in the D.C. area

We live aboard our 37'Tayana in a marina that caters to liveaboards. Its in Fort Washington, MD, with a commute under 1/2 hr to the capitol. Tantallon Marina has new floating docks, and is reasonable in slip fees. We searched all over before coming here, and we haven't regretted our decision. Most marina's in upper Virginia do not allow full time liveaboards, and since my husband works in D.C., Annapolis, Deale, and others were too far. Capitol Yacht Club and Gangplank had 3 year waiting periods, and were pricy. If anyone needs further info, please contact us. The marina also has another section of new docks that are slated to be opened this spring. Deep water was a necessity, as our boat has a 5'9 draft, and Tantallon, off of Swan Creek in a protected harbor, met our needs.
