Re: Chesapeake Bay, Western Shore Marinas

The Solomons suggestions you've gotten make sense to me, too. I'm across the Patuxent River in St. Mary's County on the naval base.

But hey, I'm just happy people realize there is a Western Shore! I can't tell you how many times I tell people where I live and they ask "Is that on the Eastern Shore?" Criminy!

Re: Chesapeake Bay, Western Shore Marinas

the OP ask for places within an hour of DC...is Solomons within an hour of DC?

Solomons is a great place on the bay but I'm not so sure meets his criteria

Hartge Yacht Harbor...been there 4-5 years. Boatyard, nice people, deep draft for slip or moorings. Nice people. Not fancy, but very functional. Great grounds, lounge chairs on grass overlooking the West River. Historic location. Hartge Yacht Harbor in Galesville, Maryland, United States - Home

Re: Chesapeake Bay, Western Shore Marinas

Solomons is a good 1˝ hour drive from DC, HHS meets his requirements but it's a big resort type marina and $$$, but worth every penny.

Blue Water is very basic, used to keep a boat there in the 80's, if you go say hi to Chilly the owner (and former head of the watermens association) for me!

Re: Chesapeake Bay, Western Shore Marinas

On West River, there is the Chesapeake YC. Not a Marina, but a YC. They have very nice grounds, really good showers, and a good restaurant and bar as well as a swimming pool. Its family oriented. The west dock is for sailboats and should have space that would accommodate your boat.

I'm a member and have been quite happy with the Club and its facilities.

Having stayed a weekend at the Chesapeake Yacht Club as we are members of the Maryland Yacht Club and get reciprocirty there, I can tell you it is a nice facility with a friendly group keeping boats there.

I think one of our members just joined there also.

Re: Chesapeake Bay, Western Shore Marinas

Capt Rizzo keeps his boat at Port Annapolis Marina. He speaks very highly of it; club house pool, nice slips, good service, etc.
When we visited I found it to be a nice comfortable place. I can't answer the 6' draft question, but I remember there being what looked like deep draft vessels tied there. We flew into Ronald Reagan National and I am sure the drive was less than or right around 1 hour to get there.
We certainly enjoyed our time. (and look forward to returning for another visit in the Spring)
Port Annapolis

It certainly qualifies as easy Bay Access.

Port Annapolis is a great place, one of the best marinas IMHO. If I was to stay in Annapolis it would be at the top of my list. Its only a mile from Rizzos house too.

For me a slip for my boat there would cost over $7000 for the slip only and it would only be 40 ftX 14 ft. A $40 foot slip where I am ( including the club membership) is $4100 ( I have a oversized 64 ft slip X16) and our fee is $4900. Amenities are the same, access to the Bay and sailing the same, the biggest difference is it is a working yard and it is in Annapols.

Over 5 years to us thats a $10,000 difference. So call me cheap.

Re: Chesapeake Bay, Western Shore Marinas

I'll add two recommendations that haven't popped up yet. Herrington Harbor South (assuming they have an open slip) should accomodate 6'2". Another option is Liberty Marina on the South River. Liberty is right under the Rt 2 bridge on the Annapolis side. Not fancy, but they have a nice pool and deep water.
