I don't mind it during sailing season, we drive up on Friday evening and return on Sunday evening.

Where it can be a pain in the ass, is now, during Spring.
Driving up on Saturday to work on the boat all day and than returning in the evening, makes for a long day. Of course, I complain, but we love it.
There are pros and cons for everything.

Having to actually "pack and Go" to the boat can be make a day of it.
That's fun. We used to do that, and sailing was more fun then, in the respect that it was more of an event.

We keep our sailboat in our back yard, the Ottawa river.
If only we would reward ourselves with a nice quiet sail, once in a while.
