You guys are all lucky! We're 2 1/2 - 2 3/4 hours from our boat, but we (wife and kids) have learned how to enjoy the trip up - reading blogs, playing games, stopping for dinner, etc. June of 2009 we'll hopefully be living on our boat though

Faster has a spectacular aura about Faster has a spectacular aura about Faster has a spectacular aura about
20 minutes with no traffic; 40-50 or more in rush times. A ten minute motor slip to sailing (huge improvement this year, before we had a tidal race and 3 miles to open water.. with tide currents up to 7-8 knots our opportunities to get out were a matter of timing.)

Better still... the boat is only a 5 min drive from where our new granddaughter lives

JSL3 is on a distinguished road
now: 1 month (until the boat is splashed)
during the season: 50-60 minutes drive depending on traffic from home to marina. 5 minutes of motoring until sails up. 30 minutes sail to the open water of the chesapeake. currently though i'm just counting the days.
