It takes me 3 hours to get to my boat. I have it docked in Sandusky on Lake Erie and I live in southeastern Ohio. Sailing on the Great Lakes is worth the trip. We always go up for the week-end.

So true. I used to work in Rhode Island, and I was always amazed that people from the Westerly, for example, would only go "Down City" to Providence if they also reserved a hotel room so they wouldn't have to drive all the way home afterwards.

I live about 6 miles from the marina, which takes us about 12-15 minutes because of the need to get through the naval air station gate along the way.

About ten minutes from my driveway to stepping on my boat. It's ideal.

30 feet from my house. When my house sells, I'll be living aboard.

Talking

About 50 feet my Montgomery sailboat lives in my backyard on her trailer. I live about a mile from the launch ramp that puts me into the Galveston Bay.

Sequitur is currently in Puerto Montt, Chile, and we have just returned to our loft on Vancouver's False Creek. According to Google Earth, we are now living 6034 nautical miles, 11,175 kilometres or 6944 USA miles from our boat, as the albatross flies. We'll head back down at the end of the southern winter to continue our voyage south.

Cheers,
Michael

Seven Minutes from Driveway to Slip. Or, 9 Minutes from work to Slip. Driving slow at regular city speeds Im in Barrie,Ontario, Canada. Now that's nice either way...
