I'm in a marina called Watergate Yachting Center. It is about 1200 slips and is a good community of sailors. There is a yard on site that I use for stuff I won't do. For do it yourself there are two yards, one in Clear Lake
proper (I can't remember the name) and Hillmans down the bay. Both are draft
restricted but I don't expect that you would have a problem. As a "heads up" on price I've been there for a few years and am willing to pay for a year at a time. There are thousands of slips in the area so I am sure that you can find something that fits your style. Some of the marinas
are pretty bare bones and you can even rent slips from individuals at cheap
rates. Other marinas
have all the trappings, blue blazers, etc. Clear Lake
is about 30 minutes from the minor airport
and an hour and fifteen minutes from the international. Now that I have sounded like I work for the chamber of commerce some things you should know. There are a lot of boats here, I mean a lot of boats. Some prefer the less trafficed areas down the coast in Corpus, Rockport or Padre and on some days I agree with them. Also the water is muddy here. The weather
is considered by some to be uncomfortable. The natives call it 'warm'; read high temps and high humidity. Finally we pronounce Colorado the same way it is pronounced in Spanish and there is a big river in the area of that same name so you will hear it from time to time. Some have been offended by this and that is the only reason I bring it up.
Anyway come on down...
