I do probably 5-10 times a year, I keep my boat on the trailer plus I like to drink so it's more convenient and safer to stayed tied up where ever I am.

The only thing that should be open passed the cockpit bulkhead in a perofrmance boat is a beer or a woman's mind.[/QUOTE]

GL's got it nailed!

We stay on the boat every weekend if possible. Managed every signle weekend last year from middle of June thru 1st of September. Even through the crappy rainy summer we had last year. Wife loves it, we can get plowed and not worry about driving. Mostly stay on the beach in a protected bay. Sometimes at docks. Always nice to wake up on the water. Nice cool dip in morning morning gets me ready for the bloody marys.

Several times a season. We usually stay in a dock at Metro Beach because it's convenient (potty, showers, shore power) but sometimes we drop anchor in the cove behind the docks or out in Muscamoot bay.

We broke loose once during the night when the wind shifted and tore out the anchor. No damage done and lesson learned - I now use two anchors at night.

I usually end up staying out on the weekend......wife goes home to take care of the dog (to big to bring on the boat, 90 lbs). The trip is 53 miles ....each way!! Love to got to a place called Lloyds creek off of the Sassafras river. Calm protected water, sandy bottom. I've stayed there during a hurricane that came up the Chesapeake in the mid 90's, in a 18 foot Bayliner Dropped a hook with a crapload of scope and waited it out for 4 hours....cool lightning storm!!

The only bad part is my AT's hatch open from the back and the wind doesn't get into the cabin as well.....but I'll live with it!!

Stay on the boat the entire weekend..............we drive 250 miles to the boat.......so it's our hotel on water

Maybe the question should have been "how many times do you have sex on the boat" Since alot of the others drive home for the night.
