RE: How far do you live from your Boat?

20 minutes, provided you don't have to wait too long at the bridge over the Reach due to repairs or painting.

RE: How far do you live from your Boat?

There is starting to be a suspicion that Surveyor I and I are in the minority as far as location to the boat.* For*anyone interested, this is how I use the boat.* For 6 years I had a boat 1 1/2 hrs. away*on the NC coast for cruising from Charleston to the Chesapeake and fishing around the Outer Banks.

Relocated because of business and had*a*boat about 30 minutes away for about 10 years.* When the kids went off to*college, we put a boat at Orange Beach, ALfor fishing*about 6 hours away.* This was for about 10 years.* Then as I could take more time from the business, we decided to get back into cruising and seeing other places.* Now, my boat may be in South Florida, SC, somewhere on the Chesapeake or any other place I decide to leave it.

When aboard, we cruise it almost constantly exploring the Keys, Bahamas, Bays, or anywhere in between.* Because of worrying about*huricanes, the Blackfin was brougt back from the coast, and is about 12 minutes from home.*

Less than a mile. The marina is in our development. One of the reasons we retired here.

RE: How far do you live from your Boat?

Hey Bill,Are you making a statement that you prefer brunets?


I'd say about 1/2 mile or 6 to 8 city blocks. It's an easy walk up or down a slight hill but I don't want to do it this morning. It warmed up to 20 degrees and lots of snow so i don't want to go down there today. Report is snow for the next few days. I do like being close but want to get a slip on the other side of the island. Then it would be 34 mi at 50mph. No stop signs and no stop lights.

110 miles from the house to the boat which is 2 hours and 15 minutes give or take 30 seconds.* About 50% of the time in winter months*0 miles for me and 110 for the Admiral. This changes to about 85% of the time in the summer to*0 for me and the dog*but remains at 110 for the Admiral.

RE: How far do you live from your Boat?

Right now she is about an hour and 15 minutes from the house with 95% of that on the highway. We elected to move her up to chattanooga (where she is now) so as to be able to hopefully travel some with her. Bought her on Lake Lanier which was 40 minutes from the house. 2 boats ago we were on a lake 10 minutes from the house.

RE: How far do you live from your Boat?

I have my CHB 34 on a marina 33 kms (~40mins), away by road. I used to lust after a home on a canal or the river, but found since it took a long time to get anywhere from a canal-front home, or indeed down the river, having explored same, and since our recent flood (still receding), I am doubly glad we are not on the river. Travel is faster by car, so a short distance to the best cruising grounds is probably more advantageous. But you have to be really nit-picky not to forget anything when working on it.

Al - Just looked up Chocowinity on Mapquest. What a great location. How long (timewise)to the ocean?

Carl, we are about 23nm to the ICW where it crosses the Pamlico River, from where you can go north on the Pungo R. to Belhaven, up the Alligator River, etc to Hampton Roads and on to the Chesapeake. South, it's down Goose Creek to Oriental, New Bern, Beaufort, etc.

Heading east, we run to Ocracoke (58nm.) you can do your own math on times.

Lots of cruising opportunities.

At this moment, 240 miles, and I hope it to be about 120 ft. in a very short time.

Right now she is 100 miles / 1.5 hours drive away. Whenever we get our*old boat sold, she will 1/2 mile away.

RE: How far do you live from your Boat?

Our boat lives about 6-10 minutes by car, 2-3 miles away. In nice weather and if I don't need to carry anything I'll walk, then bug my wife to pick me up for lunch.

We are 'retarded'.

Of course if I'm working on a project, vs puttering, I'll drive. No matter how careful I am I always seem to forget something, dementia.
