Catalina 36 in Kemah, TX Area

Total noob to this forum, and forums in general, so pls forgive any gaffes.

I have my '83 Catalina 36, Marjory J, docked on Clear Lake and have been enjoying sailing Galveston Bay. I've only made one trip down the coast so far, single-handing to Freeport and back. Beautiful trip on the ICW! Heading out again next week, WX permitting.

I'm pretty handy, and have done all the work on my boat myself, minus major fiberglass repair (can't stand doing glasswork, and it shows!) and sewing. Not much else I haven't tackled, and it's a joy to sail the fruits of your labor.

I have a very flexible job schedule, single, and no kids, so I have extended time off. I hope to meet some fellow sailors in a similar situation who can join me, or I them, on some excursions. And if you need crew, I can meet/leave the boat from any city with a commercial airport, including most of the Caribbean, so you don't have to buy me a ticket to/from.

Lastly, I reach retirement age at the airline in less than two years and plan working full-time in the marine industry. I've got a 50t and TWIC, so would appreciate any employment tips you might have. I worked on the recreational side, owning my own sailing charter company for 11 years, but want to work on the commercial side moving forward.

Thanks for reading. Hope to see you on the water or around Clear Lake for a cold one.

Brent, Good to seeya. We were at Watergate for two years and the guy that named it Clear lake should been horse whipped. There is some great sailing in that area.
