Re: how long does it take you leave?

Takes me about 15 minutes to get underway.

Normally, it takes me 45 minutes+ when I get back before I'm walking down the dock to leave. I like to arrive at a clean and ready boat, so I do all my cleaning and tidying up when I get back to the marina at the end of the day. Depends on how long I was on the boat....a quick day sail and I'm out fast....several days over a long weekend? I gotta go dump the holding tank, wash down the decks and cockpit, clean up the cabin....you know, more work.

I always plan this into my sailing.....I don't come back from a few days out overnighting at sunset, tired. I plan to have a few hours of daylight left and plenty of time to leisurely clean up.
