Next year, we'll drop the hook and let the crew go ashore. I plan to sleep and swim and then leave after 2 or 3 hours. By the time that we cross over to the Yeocomico and tie up at our marina, it's pretty late. We usually drive one or more crew home, so by the time that we get home to Fredericksburg, we can barely stay awake.
We only stayed in St. Mary's about an hour then motored down the river to take a slip at Point Lookout (The place is really getting run down). We were at least able to plug in and run AC for a cool nights sleep. Fortunately, the restaurant at Point Lookout is still pretty dang good even if the docks are falling apart, so we had a great supper before crashing for the night.

I think if the townhouse dorms were cheaper and you were allowed to cram your whole crew in, the party might be livelier.
