under Under $5k a year possible on Chesapeake Bay?

Year round or live aboard? I like the eastern shore myself.

What do you mean by $5k per year? Are you talking total costs—slip/mooring fees, insurance, etc.—or just mooring/slip fees?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Assuming this is for your O'Doomsday 30....yeah, I think you should be able to do so, especially if you're willing to be on a mooring. Getting a slip for that will be a bit more difficult, but probably doable still.

Might want to try Calvert marina on Solomon's, they've always been really cheap with me.

I would think that you should be able to keep a 30 foot boat for less than $5k on the Chesapeake, especially if you are willing to keep her at a private dock, but you might even be able to keep a 30 footer at a marina without a lot of amenities in Annapolis for less than that. It may be harder to do if you are a liveaboard since many private docks and smaller marinas do not permit liveaboards.

For the most part, I kept my boats at private docks for nearly free for the first 20 years I lived in Annapolis. I now keep my boat at a dock at my house, but the most expensive slip at my dock (42 feet) is only $3,000 a year, which was set after talking to neighbors. I can ask around if you wish.

You could keep a 30' boat at my marina, on the western shore, for substantially less than $5000 per year, including electric and water, slip rent, one annual haulout and launch, and winter storage on the hard.

Denise,
Check Craig's list. When I had a contract pending in DC two years ago I found a bunch of places where I could live aboard for those dollars from Baltimore to just south of Annapolis. Several were houses renting out their docks the way some people rent rooms. There are a bunch of places around Kent Narrows too.

I'd think you'd want a dock over a mooring. It would be a pretty cold dinghy ride this week, especially getting home from work after dark...

If you want I'll check to see if I saved some of the emails from when I was looking. It's a shame the contract never came through. Getting paid to live in Annapolis for a year sounded pretty good.

$5k per/yr. is more than doable on the upper bay eastern shore.
Figure $2500-2800 for summer slip, $1000-1500 for winter (not including electric), spring haulout + maintenance @$1k. Yup, $5000 for a commercial marina. Less than that if you can negotiate for a private slip.

I know of a person who simply anchored out in Back Creek Annapolis all winter ... can you break ice with your dinghy oars?
