Hi everyone! From the Texas
New to the forum and fairly new to sailing. I've completed ASA
101, 103, 104 in the BVI and I have about 3 years of experience as a mate on a 210' ship fishing
in the Gulf of Alaska
and Bering Sea. I have a healthy respect for the sea after my time up north!
I've made a career change and decided I only want to drive boats around for my own pleasure. I still work on ships but on longer on the bridge. I am now involved in seismic acquisition and processing and find it much more stimulating!
I generally work 5 weeks on and 5 weeks off. I need a place to call home and I am seriously looking for a sailboat on the Texas
coast (relatively close to work when I need to be in the office). I like the feel of Corpus Christi. If anyone has any thoughts about the area feel free to let me know! Also if you know of a good boat in the 20'-30' range that can handle coastal cruising and some time off shore for some longer passages I'd appreciate any leads. I'm hoping to make a purchase
within the next few months.
Thanks guys! Happy to be a part of the forum.
