When we visited I found it to be a nice comfortable place. I can't answer the 6' draft question, but I remember there being what looked like deep draft vessels tied there. We flew into Ronald Reagan National and I am sure the drive was less than or right around 1 hour to get there.
We certainly enjoyed our time. (and look forward to returning for another visit in the Spring)
It certainly qualifies as easy Bay Access.
Port Annapolis is a great place, one of the best marinas IMHO. If I was to stay in Annapolis it would be at the top of my list. Its only a mile from Rizzos house too.
For me a slip for my boat there would cost over $7000
for the slip only and it would only be 40 ftX 14 ft. A $40 foot slip where I am ( including the club membership) is $4100
( I have a oversized 64 ft slip X16) and our fee is $4900
. Amenities are the same, access to the Bay and sailing the same, the biggest difference is it is a working yard and it is in Annapols.
Over 5 years to us thats a $10,000 difference. So call me cheap.
