S/V Ellen Louise is Shipping Out

We have a date. Our Ellen Louise will be loaded to a truck bound for Maryland on October 27th. The delivery will take about a week and should be unloaded in Annapolis by the 2nd or 3rd. We are looking forward to this move with cautious anticipation. This is going to be a new chapter in our lives that we are embracing fully. Wish us luck.

  1. I've been lurking on your blog for a few months now, and am very impressed with you guys. Good luck on the move. I'll look for you in Annapolis. Do you know where you'll be staying yet? I'll be delivering my Pearson Triton to the Annapolis Landing Marina around Thanksgiving.

    Best wishes,

  2. Hi Avery, Thanks for reading. We haven't decided yet where we are going to stay for the winter. We are leaning towards Port Annapolis or Eastport Yacht Center but no reservations have been made anywhere. We will probably just get a transient slip at the boatyard where we unload (tbd) for the first month and go from there.

    Can you recommend anywhere? I don't know anything about Annapolis Landing Marina....

  3. My local knowledge isn't a whole lot better than yours. We're new to the area as well. We chose the Annapolis Landing Marina mostly for price, and because it got nice reviews. I've heard good things about both Port Annapolis and the Eastport Yacht Center. I don't know whether ALM allows liveaboards, we're just keeping #268 there until we move onboard in December, then we'll anchor out. Transient rates from Nov. 1 to Mar. 31 are $10/ft which is the best I've seen.

    Best wishes,

    Avery

  5. That would be $10/ft per month. It appears they do allow liveaboards, at least as of a couple years ago.

  6. there are several good places in back creek. Annapolis landing has some liveaboards (for example, google Zach Aboard). So does Port Annapolis and Bert Jabins. Of the three, Jabin's is more on the working side (and more lenient on getting and doing your own work). Port annapolis has nicer grounds. Eastport yachting center is the smallest of the three space wise, but is more convenient for walking into town.

    don't forget, annapolis has public dinghy landings at the end of almost every street that ends at the water, so getting around by dinghy is easy.
