Fredericksburg, Virginia (US for our non-US members).

20 minute drive to the nearest Potomac River launch. On the Potomac you can drive right into DC passing Mount Vernon on the way, see the memorials and stop and have dinner in Georgetown. There are quite a few restaurants on the water from the very casual to fine dinning. The Potomac dumps into the Chesapeake Bay where you can haul on up to Annapolis/Baltimore or head on out to the Atlantic and down to FL if you have the boat for it.

20 minute drive to Lake Anna, our regular play ground. 13,000 acres, 18 miles long. Dozens of out of the way coves to anchor in and small islands with sand beaches to beach your boat. These are highly sought after on the weekend and the early birds will grab the prime beaches and stay all day, setting up tables and grills and just partying! My wife calls Lake Anna our big swimming pool.

5 minutes to the Rappahannock River. Out little 'burg was founded on this river over 300 years ago. It parallels the Potomac and dumps into the Chesapeake Bay just South of it. The public launch downtown is directly across from George Washington's boyhood home where some historians believe that if Washington actually threw a silver dollar across a river, it was probably the Rappahannock, not the Potomac as he grew up on the Rapp and it's only about 50 yards across. It snakes and widens down to the bay where it's about a mile or more wide. Too many floating logs and solid tree stumps for my kind of boating. Mostly guys fishing on it although PWC's like to race up and down it too.

Where do you put in?

Seapuppy and I might be the only "Left Coasters" Here.

Live in Lake Stevens right out side Everett. Boat the Puget Sound on our 33' kept at the Port of Everett - Some would say It's a barge and doesn't leave the dock, but we have over 2300 hrs on it so we must be going some where

Our Maxum spends the summers at our dock on Lake Chelan. Its a 55 mile long DEEP lake in eastern WA. There are camp sites starting about 30 miles going up lake that can only be reached by boat with nice docks. Cells don't work up there and you can get away from the world and just relax.

Default How's this....

Well, how's this for distance? I live in a town called Lilydale. It's 38km east of Melbourne, Victoria Australia....yes AUSTRALIA. My boat is a 1994-model Maxum 2700SCR called Aquabat II. I didn't name her that...she's imported from Wellesley, Massachusetts, USA. She's now berthed at a marina at Loch Sport, part of the Gippsland Lakes in the southern state of Victoria.

That's lots of Googling for any of you guys looking up where that is!!!

Default Where from

We are from up north of racer2c just south of Mount Vernon as described.
If you look closely at the mansion in the picture at
sempreveloce.tripod.com/

you will see that it is Mount Vernon. From that point it's about 15 minutes to Alexandria, and another 10 into the District.

We keep our boat in the Occaquan State park (Very reasonable rates for storage - fee includes launches) and can be down to Fredricksburg in about 40 minutes or up in Georgetown in about the same amount of time.

Brooklyn NY

Docked at the Sea Travelers Marina right near sheepshead bay. 30 minute ride to manahatan, an hour and 45 minutes to fire island.

I got about 120,000 miles of ocean to play with yet it still seems crowded sometimes .

Well chappymonster... I can (just) beat you (on distance at least - not the boat) - I'm in Perth, Western Australia. Unfortunately I only have a 1989 5.9 mtr - still trying to find out all the details about this little beast - so it is either a 1900 or 2000 series although they may not have used that naming convention back in the dark ages when mine was built...

Cheers,
Mike

Thanks! I'll keep you guys in mind. For my last big outing this season I launched at the Everett Marina boat launch and headed up to La Conner. Spent the night there in a hotel (we were actually attending a wedding in La Conner that evening). The next day we took the bride and groom out to Friday Harbor for lunch, then back to La Conner to drop them off and back to Everett. It was a fun trip for my first time in salt water with my new boat.

It was especially sweet to open up the throttles and do 50mph for most of the trip between La Conner and Everett.

I've got a ton of boat projects scheduled for this winter to get me ready for spring. (Dual batteries, VHF radio and Wake board tower, plus mounting additional safety gear onboard). I plan on spending a lot of time out of the Everett Marina since it's only about 45 minutes from where I live, it's huge, it allows overnight parking, and it's right on the puget sound at the prime spot for dungeness crabbing, salmon fishing, and we want to hit Victoria, BC this next year as well.

I picked "submariner" as a moniker as I spent 8 years in the Navy stationed on Submarines out of Bangor, WA. I've spent quite a bit of time both on and under the Straits of Juan De Fuca.

Nice boat sub'. I have it's lil' sister, 2006 1800SR3 in red. I too am planning on getting a wakeboard tower for it this winter. Keep us posted on how that goes for you. There are a lot of options and I'm finding it best to trust actual hands on experience.

Well hello Sub, nice to see another PNWer on the site!
As SP mentioned keep an eye out for our boats during the summer season. SP and his admiral are on the POE guess dock often and our boat is on A dock right behind the guess dock.
Also if you go to the boat show The POE booth have free 1-day moorage coupons, grab a bunch while you are there!
