Lucky guy

I didn't plan it this way, but I can hold my breath and drive to my boat from my office. On top of that I can almost hold my breath and get to my office from home. I guess that calcs out to about 2 breaths max. Sometimes get a little light headed. None of us are getting any younger.

Well.... in a way you are ...... at least in comparison to me I WASTE sooo......many hours of my life driving 200 miles a week to work, and 200 miles a week to my boat. You may not be getting younger but the hundreds of hours of stress on the road sure aint doing my heart any good

~1.7 miles to the boat (7 minutes or so), 5-30 minutes to get ready to go, 4 minutes to motor out of the marina and into Puget Sound. Most days I can be sailing with the motor off inside of 20 minutes.

thanks for the reminder, I was depressed about something that didn't matter before I answered this question.

6 miles from home, or 10 minutes with no traffic. 1.4 miles from work, or 2.5 minutes. You have no idea how convenient it is to wash/provision the boat during your lunch hour, and have it ready to go when you get out of work on Friday (while watching the clock and counting the minutes to "escape"...)

About three steps from my front door. The boat is on the trailor in the driveway. About a 15 minute drive to the launch and then we are sailing..... well actually, the boat does most of the work.

See tenuki's answer, altho might be 2 miles, not 1.7, as he is on the north end, I am south, have to go by his boat to get to mine! I might also be just a skoosh farther, so maybe 2.2 miles.........not far as compared to first marina, that was minimum 45 min, to 1.5 hrs and 30 miles! Did not get any work done or as much sailing as when it is closer. Yes it costs about $50 more amonth, but the useage value, and lack of fuel costs etc to the marina, well worth it!
