Where do you boat?

Where is everyone spending the majority of their time on the water? Or plan to when you get a boat?

Edit:
BTW, I ran out of options, so for Caribbean please use SE US Coast

Multiple choices also ok.

The sarcastic me wants to say something here but I'll hold him back.
Canada?
Reminds me of the time I was on the phone with Chicago ordering a part. The gal didn't know Vancouver was on a ocean.

None of the above -- on the Missouri River, pretty close to the geographic center of the entire North American continent. (Okay, I know, the geographic center is technically Rugby North Dakota, but close enough.) Yes, we have water here, although we also have lots of prairie dogs running around the marina grounds.

Missing Great Lakes, and Caribbean. Also inland rivers.

Vancouver, no city should be so blessed. Beaches, ski mountains, gunkholing all at the same time.

Ok, we have few members I know of from south and Central America. If we get rid of that choice and combine the US into just east and west coasts we have three open spots. For Caribbean, Great Lakes and inland rivers. Would that make more sense?

I still can't cover Canada in anything else other than as a country.

There are only 10 spots

We start in South Florida so picked SE US Coast. However, from there we go anywhere water might lead us.

Canada's coastline is approximately 125,570 miles long...not counting the Great Lakes.

North coast BC, but off of the Inside Passage treadmill.

How about trans-oceanic, coastal, estuary, river, or lake?

Hardly fair to give the US 5 times the choices that Canada gets. Especially when we have the Inside Passage, the Broughtons, Desolation sound, the Gulf Islands, Barkley Sound, and that is only the BC coast.
I have sailed in the BVI and Turkey, and without a doubt, those ore inferior to cruising grounds in BC.
