Re: Best Homes w/Slip in the Chesapeake Bay Area

I've owned waterfront property with an attached dock and ocean access. For the extra I paid for that little bit of bulkheaded waterfront, I could have built a much nicer home a few miles from the water, and kept my boat at the nicest marina in the country, and had a lot of money left over.

I enjoyed it, (up until Katrina) but I wouldn't do it again.

I lived in Arnold, on the Severn River, and kept my sailboat on a mooring in Chase Creek. It took me longer to dinghy out to it, than it did to drive/walk from my house to the dinghy rack that my neighborhood association provided.

Except for Maryland weather, and a too short boating season, that was a pretty nice set up.
