Re: Commute to Your Boat, How Far?

I used to wake up on it, then commute 30mins to work, now its in my front yard which sucks, but it needs the work.

Then it'll be either 3 mins or 2.5hrs depending on where I decide to put it.

The 2.5hr marina will be much nicer sailing.

Currently about 12 hours, in the process of moving her up the coast, with luck this summer it will be a 5 minute swim,dingy ride from work and 15 minute drive from home.

Re: Commute to Your Boat, How Far?

I'm pretty sure I win the (booby) prize on this point - about 1700 miles and three time zones. But since the boat lives an hour and a half from a place I spend a week a month on business in anyway, it's not too bad. I managed 52 sea days last year while pretending to hold down a full time job. And probably as many days again in port or at anchor. So I manage to spend a good 25% of my life on board despite the distance.

Re: Commute to Your Boat, How Far?

So it is safe to say that a bunch of you have a commute to your boat but that doesn't diminsh your desire to sail.

Re: Commute to Your Boat, How Far?

Obviously, the 'commute' is pretty irrelevant...takes me half an hour, but I really enjoy the trip....like a kid going to the candy store.
But the folks that have to 'fly' to China to use a boat thats in the charter business or moored w a vacation home...aren't realy being honest...errrr lets change that to 'being accurate'.. they don't hop in the car to go to the boat...but, the folks who do drive hundreds of miles...Happy sail season!
