Slips/Moorings for Sept, Oct

I will be touring the Chesapeake in the late summer early Fall and will need to leave my boat during the weeks somewhere.

I was wondering if there was anywhere near Annapolis (read within 45 min drive) that is a good place to keep a boat (44 sail 5.5' draft).

I have heard about Jabin's in backcreek.

Also, have heard there is a forum where some people rent private docks in the off season.

Would love a mooring, but don't seem to find many of those in the Chesapeake?

Thanks!

I would suggest you call Hartge's (pronounced "heart-cheese") Yacht Yard. "TRANSIENT MOORINGS: $.50/ft. per day, $2.50/ft. per week, $7.50/ft. per month." About 15 minute drive south of Annapolis:

That's the heart of the hurricane season - if you are truly out of the area during the week you'll want your boat in a maintained mooring field where someone can keep a eye on it.
Most folks don't think hurricane and chesapeak bay in the same sentence, I'm here to tell ya, it happens.

Very good point Chuckles.

Since you brought that up, I will add that the Hartge mooring field I recommended above is extremely well protected. After Hurricane Isabel played Old Harry across the Chesapeake, Hartge YY was featured in a Seaworthy article because of the very minimal damage sustained compared to other marinas in the vicinity. We hauled our boat, but cruising friends from France rode out the storm in the mooring field with very minimal wave action.

If I were leaving my boat for several weeks during hurricane season, I'd rest easy knowing it was on a mooring at Hartge's. It is a well protected spot.
