Used to be 45 min on a good day, 3 hrs when there was a wicked wreck that I did not know about on the interstate, now 10-15 depending upon traffic.

Much, much more use when it is close at hand to use! I'm at the boat more in a month than I was the first year we owned her!

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!

Maybe the poll should have included another option: "am jealous of everyone who is minutes from their boat" !!
