Default What’s your longest BOAT trip?

What is the longest trip by boat you have ever done? Could be in distance traveled or days on the water.

Good stories and pictures encouraged.

Pearl Harbor->seattle Wa-->San Francisco--->San Diego---> Pearly Harbor.

Though most it it was under water so the view sucked.

Mine was from Mexico Beach, FL to Pensicola, FL and back. I did it in a 24 Pantera. Took me two days stopping a few places along the way.

first time down to LOTO....had no place to stay for the weekend other then the boat. It was all last minute and we had no idea what/where to go/do. Ended up being the best trip ever! Spent 3days 2nights on the boat and covered a total of about 90miles of running around the entire lake/channel system exploring! it was great!

My longest has probably been a couple of the poker rings I've done. Probably covered 100 miles in a couple days.....

This question sounds familiar lol.

How many really go "offshore"?

I've done many long trips. Some really exciting due to wind storms or approaching thunder storms.
The longest trip I believe was Duluth, MN to Ellison Bay, WI. I did some exploring around Cockburn Island after I left
Detour Harbor. I then shot across to Cheboygan, MI then along the UP shoreline before going back home to Ellison
Bay. I visited about 15 harbors or so on that trip. I was also solo. Yes I have many pictures but no scanner and I lost
everything in the Photobucket fiasco. Someday I may get the pics back online.

Last summer, encircled the Chesapeake bay. Nearly 450 miles over 5 nights on the boat. Planning a trip for this summer up the bay, out into the Delaware, and back down the outside this summer. I'm was surprised how easy it was to cover 100 miles in a day when you're NOT in a hurry.

I've also done 6 nights on a 38 Formula WITH our 3 kids but only covered about 150-175 miles on that trip.
