It seems 2 hours is doable provided you plan an entire weekend (or week if lucky) at 3 I take my hat off to you! Commitment

Thanks for all the comments

We don't do day sails so the 100m trip for the whole weekend is fine. It's our week end home. We tried it real close and didn't do day sails and didn't do weekend sails either... so we move the boat because we LIKE it being a bit removed and it feels like we ARE getting away. (and we are because it's very different 100 miles from where we live on land these days).

2.5 hours, ~150 mi each way, use 8-8.5 gallons gas round trip (I have it down to a science). The nice thing about being landlocked is that all of the nearby water areas are equally close. The bad news about being landlocked is that they are all also equally far......

I'm hoping to get my schedule set in the spring such that I can stay on the boat for most of the week and telecommute, only drive to the office for two days a week.

12 mile round trip. I'm out on the boat at least every other day, and both Sat and Sunday. 15 minutes, or so, each way, is awesome.
