Re: Liveaboard Commuting to D.C.

Ferry Point is pretty much only good for a very few live-aboards - limited parking space and no water in the winter.
They have just finished re-doing the restaurant and the head/shower building.

The service manager lives there on her (IIRC) 26 footer. Nice folks all around.

Re: Liveaboard Commuting to D.C.

Another option is Magothy River (Ferry Point Marina) and then grab the MARC train from Odenenton. Baltimore? and again the MARC train?
Annapolis is expensive in a marina, but there are a few places on Back Creek/Weems Creek, or up the Severn where private homes have a few slips that they rent out.
Deale is a good option but getting further away.
Are you a retired vet? Could look at Quantico marina?

Seems like the original poster has made his choice but fwiw there are commuter buses that go to DC,Annap.and Balt. that depart from the Kent Narrows waterfront on a daily basis.

Congratulations, I've known several people that lived aboard there and liked it. The boating on the Bay out of Deale is very good which you'll definitely enjoy.

Will do! Don't know if we saw Paradise Marina. We've got a 22 foot beam so we just sorta drove around and looked for piers that looked like they could accomodate.

This is the best way to commute into DC from Deale for work. The bus isn't expensive when you buy the monthly pass and is very comfortable to ride. It will drop you at several metro station making you commute even easier.

I definitely recommend Deale over Fort Washington, the commute from there is terrible and the buses are horrible.

Tantallon in my opinion is a terrible marina what they advertise and what they have are two very different things.

Re: Liveaboard Commuting to D.C.

Congrats on the job! Regarding the liveaboard commute: Eastern Shore to DC is a hassle. Annapolis is a reasonable commute - commuter busses both to the Metro and direct to downtown areas. About the same commute time as Deale; somewhat more expensive because of the location. Both have good marinas and sailing options, it just depends on whether you prefer your home to be in a small city or a more rural feel.
