Re: Best boat for up the Potomac?

Have fun looking for now, but until you're done with your classes at Belle Haven, you'd be best off renting a few times. Both BH and Washington Sailing Marina have Flying Scots for rent. If you don't mind getting a little wet, BH has Sunfishes and WSC has Aqua Fins - both a tight fit for two people, though. Renting will allow you to hone your skills a bit and make sure the family wants to do it before taking the plunge to buy.
