Re: Best boat for up the Potomac?

I used to sail my O'Day Daysailer out of the Washington Sailing Marina. Kept it on a trailer during the season (MUCH cheaper than keeping a boat in the water). In and out was very little trouble unless the ramp was crowded on the weekends with boardsailers. We could easily take it down to Alexandria and south of the WW bridge. Need to keep track of the tides -- at low tide, coming back into the ramp without an outboard can be tricky.
