Have you lived in NVA before? If so, you know the traffic patterns and their importance. If you work in DC, your best bet is the Gangplank if you can get a response and a slip. It''s expensive as hell, but I think it''s the only live-aboard marina in DC. As you go down the river, you balance cost against a longer commute unless you work even farther south. If you stay on the VA side, Be prepared to get your clock cleaned by the annual tax bill. Reccomend MD, but more jobs are in VA with few crossings that are worth the name. I''m working on the same problem for when I come back to the states next year and buy my next boat. Not sure where I''ll tie up. Maybe I can get a job in Annapolis. Either way, the commute is a huge quality of life issue. Getting from either shore of the bay into town is a major haul. Work nights if you decide to do it.
