Re: how long does it take you leave?

5 minutes to get the dink in the water, start the engine.
5 minute ride to the mooring.
5 minutes to get aboard, turn on the batteries, open a hatch, grab a PFD and secure the dink to the mooring and drop the mooring line.
30 seconds to walk from the bow and release the jib furling line.

15.5 minutes.

If I choose to put the main up first then it takes another 4.5 minutes to uncover and raise it.

20 minutes tops.

Now if my dink is in the water from the day before 15 minutes tops.

Take into account that I am moored at the mouth of a river with an E and SSW exit so I often don't need that silly loud thing under the deck.

Re: how long does it take you leave?

It only takes me 15 minutes to leave my dock (I don’t uncover the main until I get out in the river) and about 30 minutes when I return to dock. I usually have another couple come along so it takes another 5 minutes after they leave to check behind them to make sure everything is the way I want it.

Re: how long does it take you leave?

My times are like eherlihy's. I always think I should be able to do 15 minutes, but I don't even come close. This doesn't bother me though. Better I make sure I've covered everything--like bilge, fuel, and oil check-- before we take off.

Re: how long does it take you leave?

I can leave the dock in a matter of minuets, basically start the outboard and untie the lines. I usually take about 15 to take off the sail cover, put out the cockpit cushions, get anything all set. Having a furler saves a lot of time.

Re: how long does it take you leave?

I have observed that the time required is directly proportional to the LOA of the yacht divided by 1 minus the ratio of the wife's involvement in the management of same.

FWIW...

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Re: how long does it take you leave?

We leave when the wife is ready, she stows the gear puts out the cushions. I check the rigging open the seacocks, warm up the engine, remove all dock lines but two. Normally this take 15-20 minutes. When we get back it's everything in reverse, with a quick wash down included, 30 minutes.

If it's social hour add 3-4 hours.

Re: how long does it take you leave?

Honestly, I stopped trying to get underway as fast as possible when I realized I was neglecting things, like checking the oil, taking the extra line off the jib, etc. So now I take my sweet ass time and try to make sure I did everything on the list. By myself I'm sure it takes about 30 minutes, but I normally have 10 mooring lines, an extra line on the jib, the mainsail cover, four sailties, engine oil check, seacocks open, get out tiller pilot, blower for 5 minutes, check bilge, engine start, check water flow and warm up, turn on vhf and tiller pilot, get out of the slip, round corner and hoist main, take in fenders, turn corner and pull out jib, set course for 5 degrees, take engine out of gear, and now I'm sailing and the first thing I do is gulp down about a pint of water.
But when I have someone along, its all the above plus however long I have to wait from them to arrive at the pier, walk the longest possible distance on my pier, open the gate for them, back to the boat, safety brief, fitting of life jackets, explain toilet now we are ready to get out of the slip and do the rest of the stuff.
Who sail sailing was fun? Its fun work!

Re: how long does it take you leave?

It just takes a few minutes.... I keep everything stowed for sailing....we just have to run through our checklist. Coming back takes longer because we wash everything down and clean everything up.
