Re: Boatyard near Dahlgren, Va recommendations

As a matter of fact, we're at Olverson's. It's not a "spit and polish" type of marina, but it is real friendly and it works for us. My reasoning for the extra drive is that an extra hour driving to the Yeocomico saves us at least 3 to 4 hours of sailing just getting down to the lower Potomac from when we were in Cobb Island.
There are several boats on my pier that would make your Mao Ta feel right at home: we have a Panda 38, Baba 40, Tayana 37 (2), Cabo Rico 38, & a Benford 40(?)

Re: Boatyard near Dahlgren, Va recommendations

So how long of a drive would it be from there up to Dahlgren? An hour and a half?

I'm at Olverson's...been there for years with both power and sailboats.
The lower Potomac is a wide open river much better suited for larger sailboats and you're only about 12 miles from the bay.
Also, you will be in Northumberland County and their property tax rates are much better than further up river and way better than across the river in MD.

From Dahlgren? I would venture that it would be a little over an hour. Take rt.218 to rt. 631 to rt. 205 to route 3, go to Warsaw, taking the by-pass, turn left on 360 to Callao, turn right on 360. just past Callao, turn left on Lewisetta road, turn left on Melrose road go straight until you see the marina on the left.

An alternate route would be to turn left past Montross onto route 202 which is more scenic, but you can get stuck behind some slow cars sometimes.
