Chesapeake Long Term Storage?

Post by bbr.. » Sat, 19 Feb 2000 04:00:00


Just doing some long range planning/thinking.  Does anyone have any idea
what cheap long term (6 month) dry storage might run in the Chesapeake
area.  Location or access doesn't matter as all I am looking for is
something that is fairly central to the eastern seaboard. I will not be
staying in the area after hauling out and will have plenty of time to
get the boat in and out if difficult access (tidal etc.) means cheaper
prices.  The boat is 32' with less than 5' draft.  I would be looking to
pay the storage in advance to get cheaper rates. Thanks!

I don't know what state you live in, but if the boat is documented and you
didn't originally pay sales tax, be a little careful. Maryland will consider
that they are the state of "Principle Use" and want to charge  you sales tax if
you leave it there 6 months without checking beforehand. I don't know what the
situation is in ***ia.

We wintered over on the Sassafras river at Greg Neck boat yard about 10
years ago. It was very reasonable and often referenced as the best deal
around. Latest # I have is (410)648-5360. There are so many marina's in this
area it would be hard to list all of them but this one was always referenced
later

Thanks for the reminder.  The boat is registered in the U.S. ***
Islands (a non sales tax territory) and I often forget about such
things. Six months would be the longest the boat would be in state.  I
know Florida and other states have a similar situation.  I also remember
that  many states require local registration if the vessel is there for
more than six months.  I'm more used to checking on those kinds of
issues in foreign countries and it's easy to forget the issue of states
rights.  Many foreign countries allow you to put the vessel in bond if
it is on the hard for a long period.  I guess I need to check on similar
situations with individual states.  Thanks again.

Try Reedville, VA.   Last time I was there the yard in Fair Port was charging

Good yard, do your own work or hire local help.  Most any kind of mechanic,
carpenter, welder, etc. available in the area.  They work on the commerical
fishing boats, so prices are OK.  Lots of long term cruisers refitting.

You may want to try Herrington Harbour North Marina and Boatyard in Deale, Md.
This is located about 20 miles due south of Annapolis, MD, on the western shore
and is relatively near both Baltimore and Washington, DC.  

Herrington is a great yard and charges about $75 per month for storage on the
hard.  They have full services or allow do-it-yourself.  They also have great
security.

Let me know if interested and I'll send you their contact numbers and e-mail.

I have not had any problems with Maryland, but ***ia is a personal
property tax state and will want that. If they are aware of it of
course.

If you are active or retired military, the Naval Academy has great
long (and short) term storage facilities.
