How far from the boat

I travel around 600 klms to my boat & don't mind doing it. The time down there is precious & usually I stay for more that a week & sometimes 3.

A little over 2000 miles. Requires a pretty trustworthy boatyard.

Too far! We live in Chicago and the boat is in Kemah, Texas. Long way but we try to get down there for long weekends every month to six weeks. The plan is to move down there eventually and end up retiring there. It'll work out sooner or later.

I'm about 15 minutes away until the lemmings come out of their offices at 5pm, and it turns into 45 mins!
I can usually be on the water in an hour or so.

Of course! Why bother responding if you can't brag it up a bit?

Durihg the too long winter season Drift lives in a bow shed in the yard where it's a 1 minute walk to sand, paint, varnish or just breath in her wonderful smell.


She lives in a cove 1/2 mile from the house when she's in the water. Maybe 10 minutes max if I have to wait at the ramp to launch the dink.

The down side is it's a 7 mile motor down a tidal river to get to open ocean.

Bugger!

Hot,

7 miles of motoring is probably worth it since you can see her all the time.

Have you ever thought about keeping her loser to the ocean for a few weeks? Or do you go on enough trips that get you out there?

Regards

True, I get to drive by and check on her every time I go out, but until recently there were few other options due to a lack of launch ramps (I row out).

I have to plan around the tide quite a bit or I can spend the whole day motoring in and out, so until I retired I was pretty limited in my after work sailing. Nowadays I can pretty much go sailing when I please!

Recently friends on the other side of town have offered the use of their dinghy float, so I may move her over there when next I commission her.

No tidal currents, open water nearby, yeeehaaaa!

Walking distance -----10 minutes

Car ---5 min (it's circuitous by car but not on foot)

Scooter (if done illegally on the bike path down the hill) 2 min



If it weren't for the Water treament facility I'd be able to see the marina from my house.
