Here on the other side, about 30 or more of the 300 boats in our marina are liveaboards so its quite an active community. Also swimming pool and clubhouse, etc And we too are in an outside slip so we can sit in the cockpit and watch what we call the parade. There are 3 big marinas on this side, Annapolis Landing, Port Annapolis, and Jabins. All allow liveaboards. Port A and Jabins are working yards and allow you to work on your boat.

And Cy, I maintain that living on a boat IS fiscally responsible - especially here. Where else in the Washington area can you get waterfront property this cheap?

BTW, we can always take the water taxi to town if we don't want to dinghy.

Mears also has a policy not to allow liveaboards, as do many other marinas in the Annapolis area.

Jabins, Port A, ALM, and Eastport Yacht Center for sure welcome l/a. There are a few others that want to see you and your boat before committing.

Any likelihood that anyone reading this has a boat for sale with liveaboard rights either at Gangplank DC or Tantallon MD?

You don't need "liveaboard rights' at Tantallon. Just be willing to pay their high rate, plus the extra $120/mo "liveabaoard fee" (and not complain about there being NO shoreside facilities at all to justify that fee)... ...and you're in. As long as you have shallow enough draft to get up the creek.

Tantallon is a relatively easy commute to DC, but has some issues that should be addressed. Before I mention negatives, I'll start with the positives. It is located in a beautiful, tranquil setting; it has an abundance of parking, and three newer floating docks.
Unfortunately it has inept management and lacks shoreside amenities. There are no restrooms, laundry facilities, or showers yet they still charge a liveaboard fee. Many of the vessels are decrepit, and many of the slipholders just as unkempt. The negatives far outweigh the positives, which is sad, because Tantallon has the potential to be a wonderful marina.

Or... if you are a glass-half-full type of person. Tantallon is a beautiful and serene location with its fair share of old salts. It was very amusing to see who stayed aboard during the recent snow storms, and who high-tailed it back to the 'burbs. Now these vanilla yachtsmen are returning and bitching that their dock isn't shoveled out yet. Depends what you're looking for, I guess.

I'll add a fourth. Nice neighbours. OK... so we have some characters. But many of them live aboard here to get away from the banalities of the 'burbs and the fair-weather yachties. Some of the more disheveled actually know how to fix your neglected Espar or your genset.
