How far are you from your sailboat?
This is a older thread that deserves to be a Sailnet poll.

IMHO this is best measured in the time it takes to get to your boat, since traffic and mode of transportation vary widely. If you have to row out to your boat, count that time to. So it's door-to-door, or door-to-hatch if you prefer.

If you move her (as I do in the winter), use the average distance.

Yeah, Im an hour and 20 minutes away. Kinda sad but when I get there I cant just come home real quick for something.

Or if the weather gets to bad you pretty much have to ride it out. My girlfriend wanted to come home one night when our boat and many others people boats were snapping dock lines throughout the night at the marina. It gets bad when the wind blows from a certain direction and it sure was that night.

It was around when I first got the boat and I hadn't spent many nights aboard yet so it quite scary/exciting. I really liked going on deck when it was getting bad for some reason......
