Commuting by Boat to Work
So I might have the opportunity to live and work about a 5-10 mile boat trip or about 20 minute commute on the water with a 5-10 minute drive(total) on each end. Obviously I would consider this May-September. The total commute time by car could be 45 minutes-1:30, damn northeast traffic, but could be 25-30 by boat. Honestly this sounds kinda awesome, especially in July or if I get out early and can bring my fishing rod.
What is the most cost effective way to do this. There are launches on both sides, and marinas on both sides with parking spaces not an issue. Will moorings or slips be too expensive? Also what kind of boat will get be a solid mpg or gpm? I've been looking more recently at power cats, they seem to get good "mileage". Any other items I'm missing? Should i try and get a pilot house? Is it crazy launch the boat every day on each side and park at the office with trailer?
I know this is a pipedream but I am genuinely curious if you are a boater how you would do it.
