I'm starting to look at moving my Islander 28 from Port Arthur to New Orleans
after Feb. I have a good selection of available crew who sail the Texas
end of the route
, and the boat is fitted out well. Now I'm looking for outside advice from folks who have made the trip both on the ICW
and on the outside or even a combination.
My preference would be outside From Sabine Pass to the Atchafalaya then ICW
City on. I know that section of the ICW from fishing
my whole life in south LA.
For advice up till now I've heard everything from "no way, too dangerous" to "pick your window, have fun, and watch out for rigs at night"
I assume the reality of that trip lies somewhere between.
I'll listen to all advice! I don't know wether to shove off after the next front or start looking for a trucking company!
I'd love to hear from sailors who frequent the area with some real knowledge rather than those who have never done it and never will.
