Re: Potomac or Rappahannock?
The answer is "neither".
The West and Rhode Rivers offer inexpensive dockage in well protected hurricane holes, that are 10 minutes away from "raise sails" and 30-40 minutes from being in the bay.
Being squarely in the "middle bay" puts you in striking distance of practically everywhere.
I have a buddy with a boat in Prince Georges Creek, and while it is beautiful sailing on the mouth of the Potomac, it is very lonely. Hardly ever another boat to be seen, and usually very distant.
