“My husband and I bought a powerboat and are awaiting delivery. We will be docked in DC and are wondering if anyone has any general advice about boating in the upper Potomac. We mainly want to cruise and do some light fishing (downriver). We had some specific questions too:

The boats that tie up to one another up the river from Georgetown – what is the deal with this? Do they know each other, or is this like in the south where anyone pulls up to a sandbar and just hangs out?

Any advice about marinas? We are attracted to James Creek due to price and the fact that the rest of the waterfront is so tied up with construction, but haven’t rented a slip yet.

Are there any online forums that are popular for boaters in this region? The ones I have found seem like they haven’t been updated recently.

What are some good destinations that can be reached in a day trip from DC, via a small powerboat?

Any advice is appreciated!”
