Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

We used to live 2-1/2 hrs away but moved to our Creekhouse when I retired in August. So our boat is some 100' away, if you count walking out the pier. Before you flame me, I think I deserve this after driving to the boat for 25 years!

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

I am more than 2 hours away because I need to sell one house, sell 40 acres, and finish the remodel on our soon-to-be full-time home before we buy our next sailboat. Still no offers on either so waiting patiently which puts me in the dreamer category I suppose.

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

6 hr drive if u time it to miss Atlanta and Macon rush hours. My plan has always been to stay on her for extended periods after she is shipshape and I am clear to travel on her. (Still tying up all my loose ends so I can separate from land life for these long periods of time...:P )

Until a few years ago I lived on the water with a boat lift and access to the Gulf of Mexico. It was nice being able to walk to the back yard, and get in the boat. Unfortunately, the sailboat drew too much to get back there.

On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
