How far do you live from your boat?

How long does it take to get from home to your boat? I live in SE Missouri (Cape Girardeau) and sail on Kentucky Lake. It is 107 miles from my house to the lake, takes 2 hours depending on traffic. I would love to hear how long it takes some of you all to do your trips.

When I lived on land, took 45 minutes, including a stop for steaks and ice. Now, I live on the boat

1-1/2 Hours each way at 75MPH.

I don't mind it during sailing season, we drive up on Friday evening and return on Sunday evening.

Where it can be a pain in the ass, is now, during Spring.
Driving up on Saturday to work on the boat all day and than returning in the evening, makes for a long day. Of course, I complain, but we love it.

it takes me about 25 minutes to get to the boat. i'm thinking of changing marinas next year but then it would take 35 minutes. with my rhode island, small state mentality, that's quite a hard decision to make.

I live about 2 hours from the boat. When I move it to New Jersey next month it will still be 2 hours away but considerably more traffic to deal with in the Summer.

12 minutes to the parking lot. Then another 15 to wake up the launch operator to motor out to the mooring.

Wchevron - I'd say if the marina move is good - DO IT. A few years ago I moved from way up in the Greenwich Bay section of NGBay for a much better marina in every way down in Wickford. It upped my drive time from 1 1/2 hrs to 1 3/4 hrs but so what - the Marina itself is much better and the area of the bay I moved to is much better for day sail options and also to head out to the ocean.

As of a few weeks ago, 5 minutes to cross the island - from our house on the east shore to the marina on the west shore. Close yes, but too far, since the boat was sold.

Although, when we buy another sailboat it will be kept on a mooring just a couple minutes away.
