Good luck..I lived on the boat in Woodbridge, and the commute to DC at 5:45 am was 40 minutes, at 6 it was well over an hour, and at 6:15 anyone's guess.

Unless you can use the VRE trains, or live on Maine Ave, be real leary of the commute times often quoted here...especially if you do not know the back roads or alternates. Herrington Harbor is a wonderful marina, but would be an awful commute to the west side of DC or McLean.

As above if your job is truly in DC, you may have luck south of woodbridge, va on the Potomac, there are very few liveaboard slips (legal) in Fairfax County and the Occoquan.

Good luck
