I live in Arlington and keep my boat on the Occoquan. I day sail a lot and don't want to have to drive all the way to the Bay or feel I'm stuck there for a weekend on my Pearson 26, which is basically boat camping (not too comfy).
PDQ is generally right, sailing is much better imo south of Mason Neck, where I am, as it opens up towards Quantico.
Yes, lots of powerboaters, a PITA often. Yes, flukey wind compared to the Bay. From my dock to Cobb Island is about 10 hrs. motoring, it's 4 to Aquia Harbor (including nearly an hour to get into Aquia Creek).
I'd say try Quantico and see what you want to do. I'd hardly ever see Catalyst if she was at Deale or Shadyside or anywhere on the Bay.
if I decide to move her over there after I retire, we will be moving too, I just don't want to have a 60-90 minute drive every time I want to go to the boat, though there are way more services over there than on the Potomac.
I do 99% of my sailing between Mason Neck and Quantico.
