There used to be a sailor in our club who lived in England and kept his boat on the Bay.

Behind the house cuts down on costs! Of course no marina fun weekends.

It's roughly 8 blocks, which is only aggravating when I wake up (like this morning) and realize I left my cell phone on the boat.

about 25 miles, but then 5mn down river to superior bay, hoping there is not a train on the RR swing bridge half way down the river. held me up a half hour last time.

20 minutes to the boat, and then about 45-50 minutes down the Connecticut River to get out on Long Island Sound (give or take 10-15 min depending on the tide). I've got one of those pesky RR bridges to contend with too!

Wow, lots of folks live a long long way from their boats. that sucks!

I'm one of the lucky ones: 5 miles, which is 20 minutes, including stop for beer/ice, then to liquor store, and a ride down one of the ugliest traffic-wise roads in Portland.
10 minutes return trip.

I'm now at my boat 5-7 days a week and I sleep on her at least 3-4 days a week and get up only 15 minutes earlier to drive home to prepare for work.

There was a time when it took about 30 minutes to get to the boat. Then we found a house on the river (a floating home) now our boat is docked next to the house, it takes maybe a second to get to the boart.
