A potential downside to the National Harbor Marina is that I believe it's just downstream from the DC sewage treatment facility. Not saying that there's a pollution problem there, just that when the wind is right you may get a powerful aroma. I used to work north of the plant and there were days I wished I could turn off my nose. But, maybe it's far enough away that it's not a problem.

Good luck!

1993 Hunter 37.5 for sale at Gangplank

Hey Folks,

If this thread is still alive (or someone else finds it searching), I posted some time ago that I was probably going to put my 1993 Hunter 37.5 for sale at Gangplank. The long delay was due being extended in my stay here in DC.

The operative theme here is that I have liveaboard status at Gangplank and this status conveys to the potential new owner.

I've also got a pretty good boat, too

Peter

Annapolis commute isn't that bad if your hours support flexibility. I worked in Tyson's Corner for a while, took me 55 minutes, my wife works in Falls Church Va, takes her about 75 mins.
We got tired of the commute to the boat and decided we'd rather comute to work.

Are there any NVA liveaboard places?

Can anyone recommend Northern Virginia marinas for liveaboard?

TristanHayes,

I just changed my preferences to allow you to email directly. Then I can send more boat info/pictures.
