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)
Port Annapolis

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.
