Re: Best boat for up the Potomac?

Rythmdoctor's post on renting makes a lot of sense and I think you should continue to rent. If you can go out during the week, just wait for wind and run on down to the marina and rent a boat.
Boat slips, that's the problem. You will not find a place to keep a boat on the Upper Potomac. The only way to get a slip or a mooring is to buy a boat that comes with a slip. Fort Washington Marina is really pretty with floating docks and I liked it there for a several years.
I feel your excitement and all good things will come in time, and it will be better if you don't skip the steps: classes, rental then ownership (followed by divorce, AA and you living aboard with the spiders). Make sure your wife is happy with the process and all will be ok.
