Here is a breakdown of nights spent in the following modes during our last cruising season from Dec 2010-May 2011:
Docked: 38 nights
Anchored: 68 nights
field: 68 nights
Underway: 2 nights
These numbers are skewed a bit towards mooring
fields since we were in the US and Spanish VI for a good share of the season where buoys are cheap
or free. Generally from May-Nov, the boat is on the hard
for hurricane storage
, this year in Puerto Rico
, while our bodies are in Pacific NW at son's home.
To answer Extemporaneous: we usually go ashore 4-5 days/week of anchor
time, provided there are facilities ashore. We don't usually dinghy
ashore if there is no civilizaton around, though.
