Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

I said 0 since I'm closer than 1 minute away, but I don't live aboard (yet).

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

Adding in my own on this one, since the boat is a recent acquisition for me. Right NOW, she's about 2 1/2 hours away at it's original marina. However, I intend to have her in Ithaca, or very close to it, which will put it at about an hour, depending on traffic and weather. I figure it's close enough where it doesn't feel like it takes forever to get there, is close enough that I could actually go over after getting out of work at 11 PM and still not feeling like it's way too late, or go first thing in the morning and still be there with plenty of day to go. But, it's also just enough out, to make it seem almost like a vacation each time

That's the intent anyway.

I am physically 20 minutes, 15 miles away; emotionally, a heartbeat away!

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

We moved to our house where the boat is docked and are in the process of selling our home that was 2 1/2 hours away. The boat is now some 75' out back.

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

I'm lucky. I'm ten minutes away by car. There are opening a new marina in my town in May that will be at the end of my street where I will be moving my boat to.

Then my commute by foot will be less then ten minutes.

But, when I lived in south Florida, my boat was 20 miles away, and it took 45-60 minutes to drive there. It sucked.

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

This is a fun thread . If I take the short cut 1mi. away it takes about 5min. The scenic rout is about 1.5 and under 8min. Some of my dock mates live a very long way off 2hrs. + drive, and the SoCal. traffic is brutal . My friends (a married couple) used to have their boat right next to me but lived in AZ. They were at the boat almost every weekend !

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

We live in a condo overlooking our boat club. 5 minute walk at best. I can also see my boat from my living room (both at the slip and on the hard) so can check on it first thing in the morning when I get up. Yep, still there. Yep, mast is still straight. Yep, winter tarp still in place......
