Re: how long does it take you leave?

It depends on how many pulls on the starter rope. If it fires first time...remove four dock lines and I'm off like a herd of turtles...2 minutes tops. I usually remove the sailcover and hank on the head sail while underway. I'm on a lake and the marina is well protected. If it's windy at the dock, I'll rig sails before leaving. That takes about 10 minutes.
