Default How far have you been "Offshore" in your boat??

So.... how far from land have you been in your boat?

Big sportfishes, yachts, and blowbotes don't count.

How many have taken their Cigs, fountains, formulas, etc. truly offshore?

I'll go first-

Naples to Key West put us roughly 40-50 miles from land in my 303. We've also taken the boat 20 miles or so off the carolina coast, and have been all over lake Erie.

not sure what the signifigance of being "off shore" is...but we have clocked 230 ish miles in 3 days. Ocean was about 3-4's. we were about 3-6 miles offshore mostly.

as an aside, the most we have been offshore is probably around 15-20 miles.

Winner. Hands down. Might as well close the thread...

I guess eggbeaters run much better in the vacuum of space...

Most weekends we either go Channel Islands around Santa Cruz, or San Pedro to and/or around Catalina Island. The furthest in a day was Channel Islands to San Miguel, about 60 miles each way. So 25+ miles off the coast is typical.

On sailboats and power yachts I've been over a thousand miles form shore many times.
