Correction: TEXAS is a great place to run aground...period. This is shallow water
sailing and if you've got a fixed keel
you're going to have to learn where and where not to sail. Both my boats measure draft
in inches for a reason. But don't take that too negatively, I sailed a 4.5' draft keel
boat for years vary happily. Just think of Tow Boat US as an investment with a gauranteed return, rather than insurance
you may never need.
In Clear Lake
we are a very fun group of sailors, lots of activities and plenty of room to roam. There are only a few destinations nearby though, so your outlook may be different depending on you experience. Honestly, I have never known anyone to put a boat on the hard for hurricane season, we're all out sailing! The rare serious hurricane does happen and we take the risks associated.
The place I know in San Leon is a dirty field, just cheap
storage, and he will just leave your boat on one of his trailers. I have friends that did a nearly 2 year refit
