Re: how long does it take you leave?

Sublime,
Nothing lucky about it. I planned for this for at least 20 years!

Usually 10-15 minutes each way...unless I am late for ?----? again
and the normally very understanding Mrs. places a short but to the
point phone call...then I'm off in about 5 minutes...and awake most of the night wondering did I close/shut....

Re: how long does it take you leave?

It depends on how many pulls on the starter rope. If it fires first time...remove four dock lines and I'm off like a herd of turtles...2 minutes tops. I usually remove the sailcover and hank on the head sail while underway. I'm on a lake and the marina is well protected. If it's windy at the dock, I'll rig sails before leaving. That takes about 10 minutes.

Re: how long does it take you leave?

With all furling sails, we can easily get going in 20 minutes. But, who wants to?

I rather enjoy poking around, checking things, considering where I'm going and what conditions will be like.

Departure is usually more dependent on whether we need to provision, fuel up, fill water tanks, pump out or some other thing that isn't necessarily required for a given quick day sail. We stay away from the dock at least one night nearly every weekend.

Personally, I much prefer sleeping aboard the night before departure, whereby nearly all thru-hulls have already been opened, etc. Get up, have coffee and cast off the moment I feel like it. At that point, I only have to secure items below, power up the nav and comm, pull in the shore cables and go.

I have to agree with your methods, but, I sometimes head to the boat with just a couple hours of daylight remaining. It's a race to get as much sailing in before I head back in the twilight.

Re: how long does it take you leave?

With new the pilings installed off the end of the pier I now finally have a nice wide pull through slip. Now I can be underway in 5 mins and tied up in 15. Before the pilings were put in I had to tie her between our pier and the neighbors. That made it a real challenge for boarding and in anything other than a dead calm a real bear to jockey in and out.

Re: how long does it take you leave?

I'm with Islanderguy....

Time is inversley proportional to the number of people coming along...

I'm on a trailer at the marina (2.5 hr from home)...I can get there, get loaded, launched, park the truck and out the harbor in 30-35min (just did it this week end)

Bring the wife (or a buddy) along and it's an hour easy to get loaded...bring my two girls with the wife and it's a good two hours to load, pack and organize, potty breaks, launch the boat, park the truck, go back to the truck for more stuff, load that, potty break, and then head out the harbor...

"Might as well take 'er out...If anything is gonna happen...It's gonna happen out there..."

Re: how long does it take you leave?

Guests along?

I do my absolute best to get there before them and do almost all cast off preparations prior to their arrival. They can and will require my attention once aboard and I prefer to be done with my chores first. If they turn out to be low maintenance, all the better.
