I use my boat for two things:
-day sails lasting 1-5 hours
-overnight trips for 1 or more days.
For a daysail I will use the motor to get out / in the harbor. Otherwise, it's engine off and sals up.
For the overnight trip we are trying to get somewhere. For that I try to make at least 4 kts. If we are going to sail slower than that I will motorsail. Looking back over the past few years it seems that on overnight trips we end up motoring 25 - 50% of the time.
