First let me introduce myself. I'm a Norwegian sailor for the moment located in Antigua (Caribbean). A friend and I just came from the Med. and across the Atlantic this february. I'm hoping to spend this summer on the east coast of the US, and winter storage the boat there when I'm going back to Norway. I've been told that Chesapeak Bay is worth looking into. But I'm still blank when it comes to cruising the east coast. Can anybody recommend a safe and friendly fullservice marina with dry storage??
A little about the boat and what we wish for:
The boat is a Jeanneau Sun Magic 44 (Length 44', beam 13' and draft 6,5').
The marina must offer on land storage. (Summer 2008 - summer 2009)
We must be able to work on the the boat while on the yard, and preferable live onboard during this time.
It would be great if the marina had free internet and parking. Going to have to buy a car too.
We both have visa for the US and are going to get the crusing license.
Anyway, I hope this is enough information for good hints and advice from you good people out there
I would be very thankful for any feedback that would lead us to a safe harbor this summer, and the next one. I can also be reached on my e-mail, which is preferable. My adress; "firstname.lastname@example.org).
