Marina that does bottom paint in lower potomac, st. mary's area.

I'm debating on either doing it myself or just dropping it off. Either way, I need to find a marina with a travel lift that won't cost me a fortune. Across the potomac river is fine if you know of anyplace, I'm calling around to try and get some quotes as well, just wanted to know what kind of luck you've had with the locals.

Dalgreen then Colonial beach yacht center and further down is Coles point marina if you get to reedsville lots of places. I can find phone numbers if you like. I like to paint it myself. gives you a chance to really look things over. be sure to check thru hulls and everything that is under the water. Or have a 16 yo kid just paint over all the lumps and bumps. Either way look at it before you have someone paint it. Did you want a short haul or a winter home??

Just a short haul. Looks like I found a place to do it on-the cheap (relatively speaking) at Pirates Den Marina, cobb island.

If you don't have a deep draft - one very inexpensive place is Cedar Cove Marina. Nice guys, easy to work with. And he tried very hard to get my 5' draft hauled out. Just was not going to happen.

cedarcovemarina.com

Ended up at St. Mary's Yachting Center - currently hauled there for the winter.

Define "deep draft" I'm at 4'. Pirate's Den has the boat now, should be out of the water and ready to pick up on the 25th. Had a great 20+ mile sail up there, 15-20 gusting to 25kts. Kept me busy playing the mainsheet.

I am at 5' and I was able to get into the lift well at hight tide but I could not get over their straps laying on the bottom. I was 'in the mud'. I think at 4' you would be fine but would have to time it near hight tide.

They volunteered to hire a back hoe to dig the well out deeper but I did not have time to wait any longer.
