7 miles. Next to no time! Taking full advantage this summer!

Do or do not... There is no try.

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

We are approximately one hour away, we are on the boat every weekend with few exception.
I wish we were closer, but that's the way it goes.

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

I like this thread. My boat is right outside the house. The lake is an hour and then I rig it. I put an hour as my vote. I have been working /playing with the boat every night after work. We have been able to spend 6 nights at the lake and hope for a few more .
Kind Regards, Lou

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

Hmmm, my boat is about 2.5 hrs from my apt., but I'm usually on it 4-5 days per week while at work. When I am home for the weekend, I'm only 15 minutes away from our Portland fleet and my neighbors boat, all at my disposal any time.

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

Inflatable is in my den, I suppose the only way I could get closer is to live aboard.

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

LOL...I did the exact same thing ianjoub. My C&C 27 MKIII is right behind me in the backyard (15 seconds max) on a trailer. And the mast fits in the garage rafters diagonally.

Yes. Just take out the seats and add blankets and pillows. Then you're all set!
