You'll be hard pressed to find many New Englanders..

On their boat more than 50 days if they have M-F jobs. I am pretty much on my boat every weekend both days. If one get's their boat in the water in early May and pull it late October, there are about 25 weeks in bewteen. May 1 to Nov 1 is the season up here.

We bought our boat at the end of June last year in the water, got three sails on it before we went to Europe for weeks and had the boat pulled in early October. Even so, I still got 20 sails in and when I commented to other folks, they said that was a huge amount. Many only got out a handful of times (under 10) here if their weekend sailors.

My cousin is in the Chesapeake and he has a about a month longer season and he still may only get out 50 times a year.
