Re: Inexpensive slip in Western Chesapeake?
First you have to have realistic expectations.
On the Magothy River Ferry Point and Fair winds and Cypress creek marina's all have what are reasonable costs, but will run you from 1.8k to 2.2k a year depending on power and water stuff.
If that is way over what you consider in your budget you can look for private slips in craigslist, and last chance is a mooring ball, either your own or rented.
Mooring balls have their own issue in Anne Arundel country - there are very few places with public access to launch a dinghy and get to your mooring.
I know one guy who literally has his wife drop him off, walks out on a marina pier and then dives in and swims to his boat, then takes it to a fuel dock at another marina where he picks up folks.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
