Mostly sail, only motor if necessary, lunch, no time to grill yet, enjoy the great outdoors, avoid motor boats with kids on tubes who aren't paying attention to me. (so much for lesser powered boat gets right away, greater powered brain keeps them safe! Dang.)

Since our boat is only a 22 footer, there is no space for things we do when at home. Mostly we SAIL when on our boat, bring friends, enjoy a quiet time with a book...

You did forget to include "maintenance" - I do enjoy a certain amount of that activity...

That exclusion of sailing (without the engine) while cruising must be some trick

Well, that's what I do most of the time and when I stop in a nice place is for swimming, cooking, eating and sleeping. We like the sounds of silence and nature and only listen music in the marina. All of us read and sunbath while sailing.

Wow suprised by results I often use my engine to keep up the pace when the wind drops off or to top up the batteries.

Passsage Plan, Plan It. Plot It. Check It. Add Some Bolt Holes ...Now Check It Again.
