Re: Liveaboard friendly marinas?- Chessapeake

Know you were mentioning the Western Shore for your desired location but should you wish to try the other side of the Bay, Piney Narrows Yacht Haven on Kent Island offers a nice environment for living aboard.

First you get a designated parking spot with your slip. We loved that. Second, the heads are large and private, with AC and good heat. There are the typical fuel, pump out, pool setting amenities, but you also have a locked gate to help secure the grounds. If you don't want to go out, you can sit at the club house and watch the traffic go by the narrows. Depending on the insulation in your vessel, you may hear the bands at Red Eye's on weekends. (we did not) The staff is helpful and prompt. The harbor is a snug, weather protected setting.

The Narrows offers lots of places to eat, shop, West Marine store a half mile away, There is a wonderful bike and walking trail that crosses Kent Island, goes by the public library and places for ice cream. The Safe Way grocery is newer and huge with a wonderful selection.

There seemed to be a bus service that collects folks under the bridge at Kent Narrows so you can walk to catch the bus to DC.

Kent Narrows lets you depart North or South for many interesting sailing locations. Certainly, the narrows can silt in and dredging is key to living there and sailing out of there happily. If crossing the bay bridge (that did just have an increase in the toll) is a problem, this would not be a place to consider but if you can telecommute or are retired, it is well worth a look.

Re: Liveaboard friendly marinas?- Chessapeake

Annapolis Lading marina allows live-aboards. They charge $100 extra a month for living aboard which was a bargain for me as my electric bill (metered) in Baltimore harbor was $300/month. Generally if you have a "home" adress they don't consider you a live aboard. My home address was my mail forwarding service (SBI) in Florida.

Re: Liveaboard friendly marinas?- Chessapeake

Are you working? Is there a place on land you need to get to regularly? That can affect your options in a big way.

We're in Blue Water Marina on the Rhode River near Mayo/Edgewater, MD. There are LAs there who seem to enjoy the area and protection.

Re: Liveaboard friendly marinas?- Chessapeake

Ha! I just went to renew my driver's license, and the computer wouldn't accept the street address of the marina we live in here in Annapolis. Kept saying "incomplete address" and wanted an apartment or suite number. So now, "Slip xx" is part of our legal address, and I think that's really cool!

Re: Liveaboard friendly marinas?- Chessapeake

Hi Gary, yes, we are! and thanx! We have a huge list of crappy little errands to do (darn, land life sure is complicated!) Here's the story of the last leg of our journey: Life Afloat Archives

Brian: Agree - I should have mentioned that they wanted to see a copy of our insurance in addition to our respectable seamanlike boat & smiling faces.

Re: Liveaboard friendly marinas?- Chessapeake

You know.... If a marina wants to charge you and extra $100 per month if you are a liveaboard, doesnt that mean they dont like you?

Re: Liveaboard friendly marinas?- Chessapeake

On Kent Island northwest of the Narrows is Castle Harbor. They accept liveaboards.
