Hard to argue that logic. I live in Gaithersburg and keep my boat in Shadyside, about 75 minutes away. In the season I get down at least once a week when the weather permits. Since I work for myself, I can usually find time to get away for a few hours. I think it is better to spend any time possible on the boat, even just going down to do some projects lifts my spirits and 2 hours sailing can pump sunshine into my system like nothing else. I suppose I am lucky, my wife loves sailing as much as I do. If the boat were closer to me I would go more often.

Joe McCary,
Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.
