About 20 minutes which includes buying ice. If there is heavy traffic it can take up to 30 minutes. For those doubters, traffic can be very bad here!!!!

205 miles, 3 hrs. 15 min. Like tjk- we go up on Friday around lunch time and return Sunday night after dinner. With gas prices high, we tend to stay up north for more full weeks and much of July. The only real issue, as stated, is having the time to get projects done in the spring before launch. Seems like the weathers always crappy when I'm there and sunny when I'm at home.

for the last 8 years...20 minutes from the house to the boat, 5-6 minutes from the office to the boat.

before that, lived in Albany, NY and boat was in East Boston, 3 hours 20 minutes without boston traffic.

1.3 miles to the marina. If we order our take out dinner ahead, we are under sail in about 15 minutes. Plenty of sailing before sunset. But the Navesink River where we sail is not very long. 3-4 miles between bridges and not too wide. It gets a bit boring. Getting out to Sandy Hook Bay is an hour of motoring through a winding channel before we can set sail. But I ain't complaining. I'd rather motor the boat for an hour than sit in the car for an hour.

45 minutes on a good day...depending on how bad the traffic is, it can be as long as two hours.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
