Look at the city harbor, if they have space.

Re: New boat!!!!

Hello Petrified,

Congrats! Hopefully, you won't always be petrified. No wait...oh never mind.

Enjoy the sailing and all the best on finding a good marina. You might also try to find a slip that's easy to get in and out of, in case handling a boat is also a bit new to you, but often those are the most coveted, too.

Re: New boat!!!!

Thanks everybody.
Just took ownership of the boat today, here in Seabrook, . will be headed to corpus area in a month or two,.

I did buy a balboa 20 a couple of months back, and enjoyed all it had to offer. Sailed in on lake Travis in Austin for a while. My goal was to go bigger and get on saltwater. FINALLY made it.

To all those thinking about it, just do it. I came from the Chihuahua desert of west Texas. If I'm able, so are you.
