Thumbs up All Good Points

Thanks for the inputs everyone. Top notch as always! I'll probably put my boat in the Quantico area. I've thought about it and came up with two main reasons:

1. I'm still a beginner and the Potomac (around Occoquan Bay) will be a good place to learn the ropes. I choose a 27' because I wanted the ability to have a good starter boat with overnight capabilities.
2. I'll be 5-10 minutes from my boat and can easily jump in the helm for a couple hour sail after work. That sounds like heaven to me.

I'll decide later when the skills are sharpened and travel bug kicks in to move the boat. More than likely, I'll sail it up to Deale so I can explore the bay a little further.

Thanks for your inputs!
