Good bareboat charters on Chesapeake?

I'm an experienced sailor currently without a boat looking to charter for weekends and week-long cruises on the Chesapeake Bay. Eventually I would like to buy a boat, but I'd like to let my family see what it's like to spend some time on a boat before I make that kind of commitment.

Anyone know of agencies or individuals that have "fully equipped" boats for rental on the Chesapeake? It has been many years since I've chartered on the Chesapeake. It was always a good experience, the boats were new, most of the details were taken care of, but I recall that they were really bare boats, not much more than minimal equipment.

We rented a beach house this summer that was completely equipped with everything you might need for a week at the beach, from kitchen equipment to bbq grill to beach chairs and umbrellas and everything else. Made me realize that that is the kind of sailboat rental I'm looking for. A well-equipped boat that has all the gear to make a week-long cruise on the Bay enjoyable.

Any suggestions?
