I currently live in Schaffhausen Switzerland but my sailboat the s/v Northern Light is back in Galveston Bay. Hopefully I will be back aboard this coming fall…

When we are not living on Tamure, she is moored one block from our house; except for the past two winters when she has been on the hard about a half a mile away

Three hours from Peter's Creek to Seward, AK...Winter or Summer, it's pretty much the same.

5 minutes at the breakneck speed of 45. Very spoiled, but it took me 56 years to get there.

I live ON my boat - with my wife. I work at the Marina where we keep the boat. The commute is hell. Sometimes I have to turn down two rums just walking back down the dock to my home. Wait - no, that never happened, I never turned down a rum. I do like to wait, though, until I get past the left turn in the dock before I accept too many. The splash you just heard could be me.

About thirty miles. There is never much traffic, so its about 35/40 minutes.
I live a mile from Lake Erie but keep my boat on Lake Ontario.
Prevailing winds are SW in the summer, that with Lake Erie's shallow depth make it far choppier. On Lake Ontario's west end there are far more places to sail to for a weekend getaway. Besides Niagara on the Lake is a great town.
