Chesapeake Month Slip/Mooring/Haul Out?

I am starting to try to figure out where I am going to leave my boat, mostly unattended from the beginning of October to beginning of November on the Chesapeake, to then depart early November for Florida. I am open to all suggestions from a slip, mooring or getting hauled out for the month.

I was initially planning on near Annapolis so that I can have some work done (solar panals and wiring installed) while it is there, have a friend check on her once a week and my dad might spend a weekend or two on the boat.

If it is going to be much farther south than Annapolis in a place that could do the same level of electrical work, I would most likely get her hauled for the month.

Thanks in advance!

I can't comment on getting the work done, but Herrington Harbor North, ,
just south of Annapolis has a number of vendors.

Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

Can't beat Deltaville, VA for price and quality of work....Zimmerman's and Deagley's are all great...even if you berth her nearby most of the elect/rigger/mechanics will come by

A dockmate of mine has had work done in Herrington Harbor and has been happy with it. He actually plans to have some more work done there as he heads south this fall.

If you go to Deltaville, (I second the recommendation) call Scott at Marine Electronics of Deltaville and tell him Cam sent ya...excellent skill and reasonable prices...but book early!!

I've used Schroeder's and CYS in Deltaville and my slip neighbor recommends Deltaville Boat Yard @ Deltaville Marina. Southern Bay Rigging is also co-located there if you have any rigging issues.

I'd avoid CYS if you go to D'ville.

PS Having visited Herrington Harbor during the search for our boat, I'd have to say you will likely find much lower prices for similar work in the D'ville area. Herrington Harbor is probably the most elaborate marina I've seen, but you pay for that opulence and proximity to DC.
