And I thought my having to drive an hour to the boat was a long drive. UGH.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

"4-8 hours" . . . Yikes!

Guess, I've really been taking for granted, the convenience of living 5 minutes away from our boat. Because of this, living aboard during season allows us to maintain house obligations and still go Bay sailing almost daily.

We take offshore sojourns most weekends, with extended cruises every few weeks to Block Island, Martha's Vineyard, Long Island, Cuttyhunk, etc.

I don't think the poll selection choices in this "survey" are very adaptable to everyone.

Hi All,

1. Daysailer or weekender: 12 days/year = 3%
2. Off shore adventure: 24 days / year = 7%
3. Condo on water with you inside: Liveaboard 100%
4. Condo on water with you on dry land: 0%

Lucky me! I get 110% out of my boat!

Makes me realize how little time I spend out on the ocean and how much on the hook.

Jeff
