As for the WalMarts, I'm told that they are indeed less friendly than they once were.

Pretty funny that they're that passive-aggressive lol.
The naptown sams club has height barricades in the parking lot so the only part that would be accessible is the loading dock area and thats a nono

I'm guessing he was talking about the church parking lot across the street from the Fleet Reserve club/old Fawcett's location. I have parked there several years. Its worth the money for me have my car just across the street the years when I plan to buy a bunch of stuff.

I've also found nearby parking just across the bridge up the drive to AYC on the Spa Creek side. The drive is shared with some private residences that let folks park in their yard for a price. Same deal on the street alongside the Naval Academy.

Bargains ?

Is it reasonable to expect " special" prices in effect at the show. We have a long list of items we need, lines, lifelines, batt cable etc ?
Do the manufacturer's that have a booth also sell direct ?
Thanks

They are absolutely there to sell. How "special" the prices are is debateable. Some are more special than others. You need to have a good idea of market prices for anything you plan to buy so you can recognize real deals

Thanks, that's what I was hoping for. We'll be ready with our shopping list and price comparisons.

What would the chances be of finding a mooring ball on Wednesday or Thursday morning near the show? Where are they? Are they free or is there a contact to be made?

Close to zero. All the moorings are pretty well full by Monday before the show. $30/night.

The five moorings on Back Creek that rarely have anyone on them already have three tenants. In addition to the main field there are more moorings above the bridge in St Mary's Cove (35' max LOA) and a few more further up Spa Creek. I'll try to go over the bridge tomorrow and report back on current status.

There is nearly always room to anchor in the South Anchorage and two dinghy docks at the show.

sail fast and eat well, dave

Usually non exhistant.

Dinghy docks at the show look like the ones at Block Island ( you can circle for a while looking for an opening).

We usually go way up Spa Creek and anchor and dinghy down to the bridge which has a street end with dinghy dock next to it.

As of this morning at 8a:

Back Creek: 2 balls still open. Anchoring boats are building up. Transients coming into marinas and the entertainment value is high.

Spa Creek: Main field has about 10 balls open. South anchorage has 15 boats anchored. 3 boats off the Academy wall. Note: Some enforcement of federal no anchoring zone exists. I have not heard of anyone being asked to move, but Annapolis Harbormaster will no longer provide pump-out services to boats directly off the wall in the federal zone unless they can show mandated approval to anchor from the Naval Academy Superintendent. I don't know what the Watermark water taxi policy is, but it might be well to call and ask.

I'll check St Mary's Cove later today. I have a client on a ball by Truxton Park and will ask him what the upstream balls look like.

Opinion: If you come in any time next week don't bother heading up the creeks. Anchor in the South Anchorage and deal with dinghies or water taxis. Bring lots of ones for the taxi.

sail fast and eat well, dave
