Re: Liveaboards in Annapolis

Port Annapolis, Annapolis Landing, Jabins are the three big marinas on that side of Back Creek that are liveaboard friendly, lots of smaller ones as well. There's a commuter bus that's a great option to get to downtown, yes traffic is a challenge but hey, you can read or sleep on the bus. That bus stop is about 5 miles from the marina. There is also a bus that leaves from the same stop that connects you with the metro. The closest local bus is about a mile from the marinas, you'd have to take that to get to the downtown bus stop & change busses, I don't know how practical that would be. But a number of the liveaboards here work downtown and you could probably arrange a carpool.

Near DC, there's Gangplank - wonderful location but long waiting list, Tantallon doesn't have a waiting list but gets mixed reviews. Maybe National Harbor? The problem with the DC marinas is you can't go sailing on the weekends. From an Annapolis marina, you go from your slip to sailing the Chesapeake in about 10 minutes.
