The boat is parked in my yard right now, so it's a minute or less from the kitchen door to walk across the driveway, climb the boat stairs, and step aboard.

But it is off-season.

In season, it's a four-hour drive to where the boat is normally moored.

5.5 hours at the moment; in a month, though, we'll be living aboard.

I voted "15 to 29 minutes" but it's longer if I forget the gate code.

I voted "15-29" but that's in the summer. Right now, it's 1/2 hour to get to the Island Airport, then a 2 hour walk around Toronto Island too get to the actual boat.

Getting to the boat is one thing. Being able to use it is another. Currently sitting 100' from the water. Snow. Ice. It all sucks. Need summer badly.

1800 miles away down in La Paz, Mexico enjoying the 90 degree weather. We'll be cruising the Sea of Cortez for a week in April, then the long haul home to SF where she'll be 30 minutes away.

I'm currently about an hour and a half away, but that's because the boat is on the hard up in Maine. In a month and a half (weather permitting), I'll be sailing her down to Boston, and then after a bit of preparation, I'll be zero minutes away, living aboard!

It's about a three minute walk to the boat, unless I look for agates on the beach. Life is good.
