365 days min.......I can't afford less of a stay....even the cheapest "room to rent" is more expensive the living on the boat. Boat is out for the winter and I am still on board, but...land just doesn't move right.

Re: Approximately how many days a year are you on your boat?

My employer flexible with how I use my vacation, so any days the wind is up and it's not raining I leave work at noon and make it to the boat with food, drink, ice and guests by one o'clock.
I like it

Re: Approximately how many days a year are you on your boat?

We have a 4 - 6 month sailing season here (Saint John nb ca) and when the boat goes in the water home becomes a place to do laundry and collect mail until the boat gets hauled. I have never counted the days but I enjoyed every one. A bad day on the water beats a great day ashore.
