As far as the marina is concerned: reasonable priced, ideally WiFi and a nice Bathhouse and I am happy, everything else I am happy about but not a must.
A fee including electricity sounds great though! Will look into that tonight. Do you have a few names in mind for nice but low priced liveaboard marinas in Baltimore? And do you happen to know how long the commute would be?
Thank you already...
Well over an hour, bus to train, train to DC, train to metro or local bus or walk, either way it will still be 3 hours a day out of your life that could be better spent doing almost anything. Compare costs, and make sure your work schedule coincides with your commute options...just like Monday, where a LOT of stuff is simply shut down for events or weather or construction or delays. MARC trains used to be fairly reliable during rush hour, not so much other times of the day. ie, they may run 15-20 minutes apart rush hour, couple of hours apart the rest of the day.

It comes down to what you can endure, to sit on the boat when you do get time to sit down. I have friends on the Northern Neck who did/do twice, or more, the commute time to afford an other wise un-affordable home on the water for decades.

YMMV, best of luck in what ever you choose.
