    I'm looking for suggestions for a place to lay over for July and August for a 70 motoryacht. No use until September then possibly return for Winter storage on the hard. Within fifty miles +/- of the mouth of the Potomac. Driving distance from a serviced airport would be a consideration.

    Thanks

    check out the Tides Inn on Carter's Creek off of the Rappahannock River

    just re-read your post, seems that you may be more interested in a storage facility? If so there are several nice options in Deltaville, VA such as Norview and Dozier's

    On the Maryland Western Shore, the Calvert Marina in Solomons Island, MD (20nm north of Potomac) has a ample dockage (some covered) and adjacent to Washburns Boat yard a large yard facility for larger boats. http://www.calvertmarina.com/index.html

    Further north(50nm from Potomac) in Deale, MD there is Herrington Harbor North, which also has a very large on shore yard facility.

    BWI Airport is the closest airport due north of both of these facilities.
