Jeff_H The one thing about Port Williams is that there is a shoal between it and the Bay that knocks down most wave action. When I lived there I watched the Eastport side of the creek get pounded while Port Williams was amazingly tranquil. If Mike and Liz Williams still own Port Williams, they are great folks to deal with (and to know). Mike always took great care of the docks and parking areas.

Not really run down, but the configuration of the docks can make it challenging to get your boat out for a daysail (narrow fairways). Its open to the east, stunning views from your cockpit but you can get wind/wake.

You get what you pay for, further up Back Creek, Port Annapolis or Burt Jabins are more protected, but pricier.

Moe,
Looks like a really nice place. Their web site only quotes transient rates. Do you know what their rates are for a 30' slip?

Thanks,
Jim

JimMcGee Oh, and a private slip/dock would have to accomodate a 30 foot boat.

Annapolis Live Aboard Marinas

OK, so I'm all settled into my new marina and ready to spend next summer exploring Barnegat Bay when I get a call about a contract in Annapolis...

Not sure if it's going to go through but it's gone from zero to serious in just a couple of hours. I did a quick scanning of Craig's list and found quite a few month-to-month rentals in the Annapolis area. So I'm thinking rent an apartment December through March and move my boat down in April and live aboard for the balance of the contract (end of June, may extend another six months).

So I'm wondering about live aboard marinas that won't cost an arm and a leg or about private homes that would rent a slip with electric and water for less than the cost of a marina.

Any thoughts or recommendations on either slips or rentals ashore for the winter? I should know within 10 days if this is going to happen and I'll have to get things moving quickly.

Ugh,
Jim
