Re: lookin for Chesapeake Bay dockage

The locals will give you the advice you're looking for. I want to know..... a 57' what?? This is a sailing forum, not a storage forum. We need pics too.

As to the marina, I would suggest a few other filters. You'll want a convenient pump out facility, as you're not dumping overboard anywhere in the Chessy, and shoreside bathrooms/showers. Is power and dock water important? Some "no frills" don't have them. How about parking? I was at a marina once, that required street parking and it was a real hassle, especially when we arrived and only 2hr spots were left. Finally, since you're commuting, you'll probably want to have ready access to mechanical services. Since some maintenance could require a travel lift, you may want your choice of marina to have their own, so they can tug you over, when necessary. At the least, you want either on-site mechanics or nearby that can access your choice of marina. No one can get to everything themselves, if they're commuting. Not unless you want to spend the first few days, every time you return, repairing what broke on the last outing.

Good luck. Let's see those pics!

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
