Good Marinas in the Chesapeake

I just bought and restored (well i am about to be done restoring) a 25 foot Macgregor, and now i am looking for a place to keep it. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good, reasonably priced marina in the chesapeake area. I am looking at a place called Queens Creek Marina right now, but i dont know too much about it other than the ad I saw.

Thanks

Re: Good Marinas in the Chesapeake

When I was first looking for marinas I started with the MD Clean Marina list, narrowed it down by location, then cost (most marinas post their fees), then made phone calls to see if they would take a boat of the size I had at the time (Venture 22), which narrowed it down considerably. Finally ended with the one marina that wouldn't charge me the 30 foot rate for keeping a 22 foot boat in the slip. Then I visited the marina to check out the surrounding area before handing over my money.

Re: Good Marinas in the Chesapeake

There was a lot of marinas between Queens Creek Marina and the end of Gywnn Island, some of which had great facilities and didn't charge much for a slip. It would be worth the drive just to visit them and find out what's available.

Good Luck,

Gary

They are probably all listed on Active Captain.

Were are you driving from and what are you looking for? I sailed out of Deltaville for several years and am at least familiar with most of the Marina's in that area if you are considering that side of the Piankatank.
