Wyndwitch is ten minutes away from my place and close to work. She's always ready for a winter sail if
the bay is clear.....

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

I lived on our boat when Hurricane Sandy hit. There was no electricity or Internet at home, and I had both on the boat. Was able to keep working, and helping the company's recovery.

A boat can make a good alternate worksite and home.

Regards,
Brad

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

I was just in the hospital for 4 days, longest I have been away from my boat since I owned it. I spent a 2 weeks recuperating on someone elses boat, longest I have stayed off my boat, though I checked on it every day...till I couldn't stand it any more and moved back on.
When I was fished out of the water after almost drowning and dieing of hypothermia, first thing out of my mouth (after the water) was "Is my boat OK"....I guess that shows where my priorities lie.

Wolf, very glad to see you made it out of the water alive, and that the boat was ok. Unfair test of devotion dont ya know! Sail On!

Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

Thanks....I knew I loved the old girl, it's all I've got in the world. But having something like this reinforces how I feel. I have resisted "required" liability insurance, but have looked into full coverage for a 40yo wooden boat, doing full time international cruising. I found a company that insures more than just weekend sailors that never sail out of sight of land.
Covering all the bells and whistles full coverage, liability etc will cost me about $75/mo (keep in mind some people spend more on their gadgets and gizmos than I spent on my entire boat, gizmos included). The insurance company International Marine Insurance Services (imis.pro) asked all the right questions, got back to me the next day then responded immediately as soon as I added information...I am not easily impressed by an insurance company.
