Depths are great for fout feet in the local daysailing area and then there's an easy channel to get out to more of the open bay. Check the charts, 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
H'dG is a cool town but if you're free to choose where you live, I'd pick somplace south of Aberdeen/HdG and keep the boat further down the bay. Hving a boat in HdG to me would be like having a boat on a lake. There is a nice area to day sail, but its a looooong skinny channel to what most of us know as the Chesapeake.

Once you've enjoyed the near limitless possiblities of the wider Chessy, the area around HdG would seem pretty confining.
