On a typical weekend during the summer season, my wife and I leave home after work on Friday, sail away from the marina and do not come back to our slip until Sunday night. At times, when weather conditions aren't ideal for dropping a hook, or picking up a mooring for the night, we will just daysail. But at the very least, we choose to at least sleep onboard at the marina, instead of going home . . . and we live only 5 minutes form the marina. This past entire
weekend was absolutely perfect, so we spent three nights onboard. Of course we also take an occasional one to two week cruise to offshore islands.
I just came in from the boat this morning, logged into Sailnet from my office computer and was amazed to find 8 pages, over 40 threads per page, of unread
posts since Friday afternoon. well over 300 threads, each containing scores of new posts.
I find it truely amazing that during the height of sailing season, many SailNeters, to my percepetion, choose to be logged in here on weekends than spending quality time on your boats. What are the various reasons for this . . . explain yourselves please.
