About 15 miles from home and 3 miles from work. Great for running over on weekday evenings

RE: How far do you live from your Boat?

5 to 20 minutes depending on lights and a draw bridge I seem to catch open more than random odds would dictate. I'm only 1.55 miles as the crow flies (according to Google Earth) but a whopping 3.0 miles by car. I can see most of my marina from my bedroom window but a large boat yard shed on the opposite side of the canal just manages to block the view of my boat.

Exactly 35 paces from the back door. It's a nice walk even at low tide.

RE: How far do you live from your Boat?

Will anyone think I am a better boater if I live closer or farther from my boat?

It ain't in my back yard but I don't need to get on an Interstate highway to get there.*

I don't think it's a matter of how far but how often.* Like general aviation airplanes, the vast majority of boats just sit, year after year, never going anywhere, never being used.

I have been told--- but I don't know how the figure was derived--- that in our 2000+ boat marina, less than 10% of the boats are used regularly and of those a very small percentage are used frequently.

That is about right.* Maybe they are waiting for fair weather!

RE: How far do you live from your Boat?

During the last couple of years that we owned our sailboat Marigot, we docked her at a marina about a 10 minute walk from our house. Interesting to us, because we were so close, we realized that we rarely stayed overnight on her or barbecued etc because we were so close to home.

We still live in the same house in St. Catharines, but we now dock our trawler Delia Rosa in the US at Sunset Bay Marina, in New York about a 45 min trip. When we go to the boat, we stay on her for days at a time. In fact, we actually spend most of the summer aboard. Still close enough to go home if we need to, but far enough away that we don't want to!

We live just ten minutes away ourselves. And that close proximity to home and all of our favorite restaurants does keep me from staying on the boat in her permanent slip. My wife is always suggesting it, expecially when I whine about not getting out cruising enough. There are a couple other factors that influence me, and one is the superior comfort of my home mattress. The other thing is that we are one of only four non-charter boats on our dock. I guess if we had a group of owners on the dock with us, we would develop social interaction with them. The other three non-charter boats are out of town owners, whom we have never seen enough of to identify them as the owners.
