The Cheaspeake is great, but don't overlook the advantages of having a slip close to home.

First things first: Find the right boat for you, then decide where to keep it. and then enjoy the hell out of it.
Congrats on joing the Catalina fleet.

Just as commentary, for those of us used to commuting over an hour to work, 90 minutes to the boat doesn't seem like a big deal, even for a daysail.

For the past 5 years, I've driven over 4 hours down to our boat, but this year we've finally reached our limit and are moving to a marina that will be about 1.5 hours from home and less than that if I were to leave from work. For us, this will be huge, since we usually spend Friday and Saturday nights on the boat every time we go. I'm thinking I may even do a few week long visits and commute to work from the boat this summer to help me rationalize the slip costs. lol
