When the boat is on the hard at St Kilda Marina, it's about 45 minutes for us - but since the tail end of our boat is the first thing the west wind hits when it screams across the Bay, I worry about it all the time!

When it's parked at home in the shed I can sleep at night, but it's an hour or more to the water. Can't win really...

A whopping 4 hours. Sucks being a FL boy living in desert Texas. Have to make a LONG weekend out of it at least every 2-3 weeks.

6.7 mi – about 14 mins as the car flies.
Never a direct route when you need one....

20 minutes from my office, 30 minutes from my home in the Hudson Valley.
Which reminds me: how about some of you southern sailors posting some good Warm pictures to distract us from the freezing rain and snow?

With the boat very close now, I'm finding that I go there more often. Of course, she's on the hard and I'm generally working on her.

And I didn't get much done with all the snow all over.

it's in the driveway for the winter, soon as this blasted snow settels down It will be at the harbor either Blain or Bellingham. Then It will be about a 30 min drive.
