mccary Being a lifelong DC(ish, MD actually) resident, I have been to the Gangplank many times, some for boats. I have never tied my boat there. But as to where you could launch a trailer-able boat, did you consider the Washington Sailing Marina (other side of the river on the VA side, south of Reagan National Airport. They have ramps and what appears to be plenty of trailer parking. I have NO idea about rates but it is worth considering. Another spot you might consider is Fort Washington, they have some facilities to launch and I am sure for parking.

Your notes on the security are well worth noting; crime in that area is pretty high and I would feel somewhat safer with those gates as protection.

To beat that poor horse yet again - the unintended discrimination would have been against non-jewish boaters, I believe.

*grin* You are absolutely correct. I don't know where my head was. Thank you.

Although I do have several boxes of matzo on the boat. Keeps great.

You note 40A power at the docks - not true: there is your choice of 30A and 50A service. I don't know of any standard for 40A service.

In winter they have bubblers on all docks and winter water. Pump-out is available all year round and you don't need to be aboard for service.

At the Metro stop a block and a bit away is also a Safeway grocery and a liquor store.

It is a great visit for DC and the staff really are both responsive and supportive.

Since it is a serious review, you will take my edit as a help rather than annoyance I hope... "and cables are batter, faded..." suspect you meant battered.

Best Regards,
Yup. Typo now fixed. Thanks.
