looking for slip for 40' Beneteau sloop on western shore as far south as West River and as far north as Magothy. 12' Beam, Draft 4'8"

Looking to move to the slip about April 1, 09

Currently paying $6,000/year. Want to reduce this annual expense.

Sante,

Check out Hammock Island Marina at hammockisland dot com (sorry - don't have enough posts yet to post a direct link). It's a nice mom-n-pop place just south of Baltimore that's strictly for sailboats. I've been looking at it myself but otherwise have no connection. Bill Durr was nice enough to talk with me for half an hour or so. I was favorably impressed. In August, slip C-3 was open and I suspect it still is. At 40x14, it ought accommodate your boat nicely. This year's price is $2730. Their contract year begins in March, IIRC. Tell him DaCAP sent you - maybe it will help me get on a waiting list for a smaller slip! :D

I recently saw private (residential) slips in Annapolis being offered on Craigs list, might be worth checking out.

Check out Maryland Yacht Club where I am...slips are 39/ ft + $2000 membership per year. Pool , Clubhouse, Rock Creek sail Potapsco when the Bay is too large. Can see eastern shore from clubhouse. Hurrican Hole and well protected. A little north of the Magothy, but worth it as it opens up so many destinations on the northern Chesapeake and only 4 hour sail to Annapolis.

If you are interested, PM me.

Hey Shaun we are visiting you for the winter it appears and comming out at Oak Harbor on Dec 15th. Weve had a great sail the last few weekends. I have been working Saturdays and taking off Sunday/ Monday ever since they added the Senate on to my House of Representatives responsibilities. How is school?

Hope to see you soon.

Chesapeake Yacht Club
 
If you are still looking for a new slip, I might recommend Cheaspeake Yacht Club on the West River. It can be found at chesapeakeyachtclub . com. I have been there for 30 years this August and sail a Caliber 47LRC. It meets all of your needs as noted in your post. Good luck and happy sailing!!

Best Rates for Sailboats on Chesapeake Bay
 
Gosh - I cannot believe that folks are paying $6,000 per year for a slip. I pay $1,975.00 yearly for a large slip for my C&C 35. I am only minutes from the Bay, can sail out of my slip. No bridges or powerboats to get in my way.

The marina (Old Bay Marina) is family run and they make you feel like you are part of the family. Before a race they even gave me a quick haul for free and only asked that I do not come in last! Sure -they do not have a pool or Starbucks - but I happy to be on my boat and away from that world. The marina is at the entrance to the Patapsco and the best deal on the Bay.

Dr. George Janssen C&C 35 "Nordic Nights"

Dr George...What are the dimensions of your slip. We are across the river from you and I am pretty sure I have seen you out on the bay. We also have a 35 C&C. Its and MKIII,,,what model year is yours?

Janssen,

Where do you keep your boat? Slip fees in Annapolis are astronomical. I pay over $7,000/yr for a 40-foot slip. If you go over to Mears Annapolis, the same size slip costs over $9,000, though they do offer a social club. I think Jabin's, Port A, and other Back Creek marinas are in the same ballpark price-wise.

I wouldn't mind paying less, but I do love seeing Annapolis at sunset from the water as I come home, followed by calamari at Rockfish.
