Yikes! I may be transferring to Maryland (Greater DC area) and I need to get the low-down sailing the Chesapeake. What is the slip availability in Naptown/ Eastport? How about Solomon’s? (Work is in Gaithersburg.) We’d be hauling a 34 footer back east sometime in the fall/winter. I’m assuming that it will go straight into winter dry storage. What does that entail? San Francisco Bay has spoiled us and we are currently in a great marina – clean bathrooms, “free” ice, double fingers, park like setting. My wife and I are both “boat people” so we are not adverse to spending a little more on our passion. Our boat draws 6’. Is this really a problem? Also, I’m guessing that we will need to buy some light air equipment like a half oz spin and a 140% #1 genoa. I’ve sailed once on an AYC Wednesday night beer can so my experience is limited. What are places you guys sail to and is it true that most of the bay is too shallow to sail? My wife is dead set against the possible move and thinks that life as we know it will cease and we’ll be unhappy sailing there.
