I've been riding the potomac this summer (the cove on the MD side under the 295 bridge) and hit lake anna a couple times. The cove is nice, but you gotta catch the tides if you don't want to go through 2 props and a rudder
. Lake anna is a dream, but w/ 95 traffic, it takes 2-3 hrs to get there. Any other suggestions? Also, if anyone wants a pull through the end of the season, get in touch!
