      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

Annapolis area boat slip fees?

29 posts in this topic

I'm considering a move to the Annapolis area next year. Am curious - what are typical slip fees for a 20-25' sailboat on a monthly/yearly basis? Would like to stay within 15 miles of Annapolis.

 

Thanks in advance!

TexasSailor, depending on where you keep your boat, you should plan on paying between $100 - $150 per foot per year for a slip near Annapolis and a good deal more in the primo locations. I pay $3400 per year for my 30 footer at one of the best marinas on the Chesapeake Bay, Herrington Harbour. Herrington Harbour is actually two marinas, Herrington Harbour North located in Traceys Landing, MD (near Deale, MD) and Herrington Harbour South in Rose Haven, MD (near Chesapeake Beach, MD). These two marinas are only about 17 miles south of Annapolis by water. Both marinas are conveniently located to Annapolis, Cambridge, St Michaels, Oxford, Solomons Island (home of the famous Screwpile Lighthouse Challenge), Baltimore (OK, that's a bit of a stretch). Herrington Harbour is also home to the Herrington Harbour Sailing Association (HHSA), a great sailing club with excellent racing.

I keep my Cal next to J world in Eastport nice protected slip no bridges to mess with includes electric and water and two nice bathrooms with showers for $199 a month a few bucks less is you want to pay it all up front. on the other side I keep our 42' powerboat at near there at the entrance to back creek and its $6500 or there about's I think, and that does not include electric but does include cable... depending on the boat you could dry sail from bert jabins, i think thats around $225ish a month a little bit further up back creek but nice place... hope that helps

If you don't need to be in Annapolis or a resort type marina there are plenty of places for less than $100 a foot per season. If you don't need a pool and minature golf then $60-$75 per foot at a less fancy boat yard is more the norm. I pay $2200 to park a thirty footer and I think that's expensive.

Ringmaster, where're you located? That's a nice savings! BTW, I also hear that slips on the West River near Galesville are a pretty good deal - one of my crew docks his Catalina 34 up in that area. Only issue is that it takes a bit to get out to the Bay proper. But, then again, the WRSC racing scene is pretty active on the West River and Cheaspeake Bay.

TS,

Alot of it depends on what you want to do with your boat...if you want to race (in a seriously competitve way) then you need to be in Annapolis itself, otherwise the transit by boat is too long. If you want to cruise and/or "club" race, then you can be farther away...as almost every river, harbor etc has some kind of racing (beer cans, etc).

Something on the order of 6000/yr for a 40' boat at Jabin's.

 

 

A bit low try $7700 + 08' season slip holder 41'

 

Wonder how things shake out going into 09' numbers seem to be falling off, by that I mean less slip holders.

They are expensive and you have to be aboard. Not 24/7, you can go ashore, but you have to be living there. They aren't for storage.

You can put a mooring in the north/west half of Weem's Creek for free outside of what you spend on the actual equipment.

 

What about a mooring? In the heart of Nap Town.

I think we paid 5600 or so in 07, but we got to the top of the list for the Navy MWR marina last April and cut our slip costs by 50%.

 

I believe Rod prices his slips by the 5' increment, so you may be in a 45' slip if you're 41 LOA. We're at Jabin's for dry storage again this year and that sure hasn't gone down.

My house (which is rented out) is in Hillsmere and with the Duvall Creek in the backyard. The max draft is 6 feet to get in/out though - but there seems to be a push to dredge the creek. I am kinda serious - and especially with those slip fees.

What this town needs is rent control and a market for illegal sublets.

 

If you are referring to me you are barking up the wrong tree - I own the property and can damn well rent it out.

 

Never heard of such a thing as rent control for slips.....................

Not at all and please don't take offense. The discussion of slip fees just reminded me of my years in NYC, particularly a few months I spent between schools, managing apartment buildings.

No worries.

 

I think the real culprit is all the damn dockuminiums sprouting up - and naturally the amount of boats (which will be limiting itself for the next couple of years)

I've seen a trend for the larger slips being more in demand (40' + ), with slips those size filling up along Back and Spa creeks. Since you're looking for a 20-25' slip, there will be more available, and at a lesser price. Check out Spinsheet magazine classifieds.

 

good luck!!

Good idea on the Spinsheet. Grabbed a copy last time I was up in Annapolis at some famous family owned crab shack (can't remember the name at the moment) this past August, but really didn't give it much of a look.

 

Will be visiting my Dad up there in a couple of weeks. Will snag a copy then and check it out.

I'll let you know as soon as I score the boat. :)

 

Planning on picking up a pocket cruiser once I get relocated.

 

Where I think about parking her might play into things though.

Although Duvall Creek has 7 feet of water at mean low tide, the entrance is a fair bit shallower. At low tide it is only 5 feet deep. Believe me, I have been on the bottom there several times with a boat that only draws 5'6". Had to be bounced off by a power boat wake a few times.

Good to know - thanks

 

I hope they get an OK to dredge it.
