About 90 miles from house to boat but, now that I'm retired I like to stay on the boat for weeks at a time so the drive ain't that bad.

Living where we are, we had a choice of Lake Ontario, 1 hour, Lake Huron 1 1/2, Southern Georgian Bay 1 1/2, or Georgian Bay, 30,000 Islands & one of the best cruising grounds in the world & 2 hrs..... well worth the drive. Head up Friday, on the water Friday night and back to land Sun. evening.

2.5 hours for us. We are hoping to shorten that with a move/lifestyle change, but not sure when. Maybe make it "0".

23 minutes. Boat is in a private little marina on the north end of the island (which at 52 sq. miles, isn't all that big). Still, it feels like it takes "forever" to get there when I'm taking her out for a sail...

20 minutes to our bigger boat. Sailing dinghy is right out the back door

2 hrs. 45 minutes with average SF Bay traffic. We live in the valley northeast of San Francisco and for some reason the drive has never bothered me. Especially in the summer when it is around 100 degrees in Chico and by the time we reach Page One the marine layer is in, it is blowing 20+ and it is 55 degrees! Our thick Norwegian sweaters that we could barely touch at home are pulled with glee. We feel like we have left the country or even the planet instead of heading out for a weekend sail!

Does anybody really 'live' when they are away from their boat?
