Re: Winter storage Annapolis area
I agree with Chef2Sail, the Old Road Bay marinas have great deals and pricing on Winter Hauling and land storage. Young's is only $22.00 per foot round trip and Old Bay Marina is $25.00 per foot for the haul out, power wash, blocking and April launch. Old Bay can handle larger sailboats then Young's and has acres of land storage, both yards have very knowledgeable and helpful owners and are not owned by a big faceless corporation.
Both yards allow DIY and your mechanics as long as they are insured. As an added perk, Old Bay lets you use their trade discounts so you can buy supplies at the same rate the trade does. This alone is a big plus and makes the trip up or down the Bay worthwhile.
In Baltimore Harbor the winter haul out rates skyrocket up to $50.00 per foot. I would guess that Annapolis is just as pricey!
