We're 35 minutes away, which is just about perfect because it's close enough to go on a moments notice yet far enough to feel like we're "away" from the responsibilies at home.

Two blocks. Found the marina and then bought a house. Usually just walk to the boat.

One mile to the yacht club. Time depends on how I hit the three lights.

Talking

Ninety miles, 1.5 to 2.5 hours depending on traffic. Then a 35-45 minute power boat ride to the island. Hopefully moving to the island soon, then it will be a 2 minute walk to the marina .

Not close enough, but not bad

We are about 1 h door to launch parking lot away from our boat. If we leave our house by 8:30 AM on a Saturday, we can be sailing no later than 10:30.

It is not far away about 40 miles, but the first 33 miles takes about 30 minutes and the last 7 miles and short walk to pier takes 30 minutes. The problem is our boat is in a town that you can't get to from here. Basically you have to go through other towns (small and few roads) to get to. In the summer once past 10:00, it becomes a zoo, which is why I tell my wife, we need to leave no later than 8:45 so we can get a spot in the launch parking lot.

Moving the boat won't help either as most areas for us are about the same distance/time wise.

I am about 50 minutes away from my boat. I take all back roads to avoid the Garden State Parkway. I have been on the parkway in traffic jams for up to 3.5 hours.

Was 4 hours - left on Fridays at 3 PM, returned Sunday at midnight (which made going to work Monday mornings "interesting" but that's another post).

Decided to refocus our priorities, moved aboard 5-1/2 years ago.

30 Minutes, no traffic.
40 Minutes with traffic.

That's still too far. Looking to move closer.

Cape Girardeau! I went to college there. Best 6.5 years of my life (for a 4 year degree)
