How Long Does it Take You to Get to Your Boat

I was wondering how long it takes you to get from your regular home to your regular slip.

Let us know in hours since some will be miles and kilometer.

Not one for liveaboards or world cruisers. That would just be gloating.

We are just moving house, so although the office is further, at the weekends the yacht is probably within baseball range of the front garden.

We have friends who travel 3 hours to get down to the coast and yes they did forget the keys once

20 mins to 30 mins depending on traffic in a metropolitan area population of 5.5 million people.

Two hours each way, so we never go just for a day.

Down every Friday night and back every Sunday night, regardless of the whether.

I own an Endurance 35 and one of the criteria when I moved house was that I wanted to be very near to my boat. I now can see my boat from my house and it takes me a couple of minutes to get to it, brilliant.

I just did a Google Earth and it's exactly 2,609.4 kilometers (1,621.4 statute miles and 1,408.96 nautical miles) between my regular abode and my marina slip.

Maybe that's why I managed to get in 71 sea days in the last year -- I've got no choice, once I get there, other than spend some time.

How long does it take me? An hour to the airport, two hours waiting for the flight, three and a half hours flying, and hour getting through passport control and shuttle to the rental car counter, and hour and half driving, then I'm there.
