Winter storage on East Coast

I will be cruising my Morgan 41 from Northern Michigan through the Erie Canal, down the Hudson River and then to Annapolis. The journey is to begin toward the end of August with a planned arrival around the 3rd week of September. At that time, we'll pull the boat for the winter. If the timing doesn't work for us, we'll store somewhere along the route, hopefully after we reach NY City. So I'm looking for input as to a good storage place somewhere between NYC and Annapolis. Obviously hurricane protection is important. Trustworthy and talented emploees at the marina will be essential as well. Does anyone recommend a marina for us?

Others can list locations on the Chesapeake, but for Delaware River and Bay;

Delaware City Marina DE, in water or on hard storage, local bus to Wilmington DE and connections to Amtrak NE corridor. For boats with more than 5ft draft wait for high tide to enter the Delaware City canal entrance but then minimum 9ft at low tide at the marina.

Essington PA, on hard at Harbor Pointe, not the best location and you must supervise haul out and blocking to get it done right. Local bus to Philadelphia international Airport and Philadelphia.
Also in Essington, Fox Grove Marina, their lift may be to small for a 41ft boat.

More remote, Hancock Harbor on the Cohansey at Geenwich NJ, deep water good storage and secure, but think taxi ride to get anywhere.

CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
Wharton Creek on the Eastern Shore has three marinas with facilities for storage and good hurricane protection.

Will you be going around the DelMarVa or through the C&D Canal?

If you're looking for a storage home once you get to the Annapolis area, I'd recommend Herrington Harbor North in Tracy's Landing/Deale. Big yard, good staff, many contractors on site, WM on site, etc.

to Porfin. We would be going through the canal and going to Herrington North if we have the time. The reason for the post is if we don't make it that far we need other options.
To all other responders, thank you for the input.

If you are around NYC you might be better off on the Hudson, as you would have excellent hurricane protection, and likely better prices, especially upper Hudson around Kingston. I don't have any specific suggestions, just a thought that the Hudson, I would think would be cheaper and offer good protection.

I had Lockwood work on my boat and would not recomend them to anyone. I also invite anyone to come and look at my boat for yourself if you have any questions about Lockwood's. also the price they quote is not the price they bill.

Sounds like something you should take up with Lockwoods. Did you write a check for work that you were unhappy with?

Oh, I took it up with Bill Lockwood! He paid to have the repair redone elsewhere. But since he screwed it up from the begining it never came out right.
