Just a heads up, you may have no problem
Harge's is liveaboard-friendly, as are many marinas in Annapolis and Eastport.
We've been living aboard in Annapolis for 5 years now, loving it ... fewer disagreements than even the (very few) we had on land, so don't let the liveaboard/divorce horror stories scare ya!

If your willing to pay it the price $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ I guess I have a hard time paying more for the slip every month than the boat

Yet another argument for a going toward a smaller boat?

Many places, including Hartge's that the OP mentioned, will rent you a mooring during the summer & slip during winter (mid-Nov thru mid-Apr, here) for a very reasonable price. Baltimore & Eastern Shore are also about 1/2 the price of Annapolis.

But since we don't have boat payments, we'll inevitably pay more for the slip than the boat

We'd be paying cash for the boat, so no monthly nut on that at least.

I visited a few marinas in Annapolis - Annapolis Landing (very nice, not a working yard) and Port Annapolis (also very nice, but a fairly busy yard), and the wife was impressed with the facilities. Hartge is equal parts yard and marina, but I haven't been down there in about a year; we'll be visiting again this weekend.

If you haven't guessed, I'm looking for a place that leans towards the non-working yard end of things. There are plenty of yards I can go to when I need work done, I'd just rather not live next to a travelift ramp.

We favored a 'working' marina so don't have direct experiences for you. I assume you're also going to look at the Herrington marinas while you're at Hartge's (in the neighborhood).

Friends who spent a summer at Annapolis Landing said it was pretty but rough - they were 'waked' all day every nice weekend day. Too much traffic.

Yeah, we're looking at Herrington North as well.

Annapolis Landing probably is a little rough - you have them, Port Annapolis, Jabins, and three others on Back Creek, so there's a LOT of boat traffic on the weekends.

From a Hinckley 49 Owner

I own, and single-hand a Hinckley 49. It's a wonderful boat, and easy to handle alone (assuming good sailing / boat-handling skills).

Henry Hinckley designed the 49 for himself to sail and cruise with his wife. He was not a young man when he did this, so the boat is exceptionally well laid out for short crew. All of the winches lead behind the helm etc.

It is also the first Hinckley to have some real space, and I mean lots. It was used heavily as a crewed charter yacht back in the 70's and 80's. It sails well, but stops just short of being a motor-sailor.

Hope I have been of some help.

- Southerly

The "convincing" may go a lot easier if you make it a reversible decision ... put your stuff in storage for a year, rent your house rather than sell it (if that's practical) and reevaluate after 1 year aboard, whether to finally sell it all or move back to land. May be easier to make a small step rather than a leap, knowing there's a way out if its not for you may decrease resistance that she may be defining as practical. Just a thought.

Unfortunately, it's an either/or - sell the house and buy another one, or sell it and pay cash for a nice boat and put the rest in investments.
