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...

around 36 minutes from my house to where my boat sits, patiently waiting out a frigid canadian winter.

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.
