Not close enough, but not bad

We are about 1 h door to launch parking lot away from our boat. If we leave our house by 8:30 AM on a Saturday, we can be sailing no later than 10:30.

It is not far away about 40 miles, but the first 33 miles takes about 30 minutes and the last 7 miles and short walk to pier takes 30 minutes. The problem is our boat is in a town that you can't get to from here. Basically you have to go through other towns (small and few roads) to get to. In the summer once past 10:00, it becomes a zoo, which is why I tell my wife, we need to leave no later than 8:45 so we can get a spot in the launch parking lot.

Moving the boat won't help either as most areas for us are about the same distance/time wise.
