Re: how long does it take you leave?

I am on a mooring and it is about a 70 yard walk to the shore from parking to launch my inflatable to row out to the boat. So I park at a meter, inflate the dinghy, haul it to shore, walk back to vehicle and go park a block away for free, walk back to dinghy, row to boat, unpack, pull sail covers off, start motor and cast off. All in all it takes about 30 to 45 minutes. It has gotten quicker now that I have a sail bag for my jib and I can leave it hanked on.

Coming back really is difficult as sometimes, I take it really slow.....
