My boat is half way between my job and my home, perfect, 10 to 15 minutes away from either location.

Even better, my boat is about 100 yards away from a floating bar called weekends which is pretty fun.

Was 1000 miles. Three hours by air, or two weeks by sea.
Now ten minutes. I visited three times this week.

I'm glad you asked in minutes, I really struggle with archaic measurement system like cubits, feet and miles. BTW I have small feet so does that make me further away?

time as an accurate measure of distance

In cursing boats you don't think about the physical distance in a comparative sense, but rather how long it will take to get there (or how much time you will have to enjoy getting there). In the same way different boats travel at different speeds, so do different boat owners.
Among physicists there is a tangible measurement of distance, a nanosecond, the distance it takes light to travel in one nanosecond (one billionth of a second) = 29.98cm/11.803in.

About 10 minutes from home. I can hold my breath and get there from my office.

A picture is worth a thousand words...



This is my back yard...in dry season. Everything is much greener now.

Night0wl,

That picture is just awesome. You really have it good.

It's winter time now, so our boat is 25 minutes away on the hard. I try to get there every week to monitor the battery voltages among other things.

I'm planning to lauch in early April (not late June like last year). If we get in well before everyone else, maybe we'll have a few weeks before we get kicked out to go to our summer cruising grounds, which are 100 miles away.

Regards,
Brad
p.s. Bump!
