Used to be nearly every weekend in the summer on my 30 Sonic, anchored and/or docked. Now the boat is the condo in Miami, staying on it beats the heck out of any hotel room and it moves up and down the entire Florida coast. <gg>!

My wife and I took a boat down to the Powerboat Mag performance trials in Sarasota and could have slept in the Hyatt for $99 a night (and the company would have payed for it) but chose to sleep on the boat instead. It was only a 29 footer and we still had a great time. We even got mentioned in the article.

We had a number of Cruisers in the past and overnighted on the hook or at the dock often. Now with 3 small boys, they don't make a boat big enough!!!! (besides, we have a house on the river now anyway)

11-20 total nights per year and growing annually. Absolutely one of the pleasures of boating, especially with the number of places we here in Va. Beach can reach out and touch by boat.

Just about every weekend in the summer. We're 45 minutes from the lake and we keep the boat on the trailer, so it's usually easier to stay the night and it feels like a mini-vacation. We were out of commission for a weekend this past summer and I wondered what was going on that there were so many people out that I had never seen before. Then I realized that maybe that's just what our neighborhood was like on summer weekends. We only see it on Saturday morning, Sunday night, and after 6 during the week.

Just about every weekend in the summer up in Michigan...easily 20-25 times a season...

Have even crashed there a couple of times during fantasy fest in Key West, but usually its too hot in Florida...give me the condo with air.....
