Aloha Star,
Welcome aboard! Still working on my Cascade 42 hull #32. Hope to get it sailing some year. Was the one you sailed on a Center Cockpit? Mine isn't.
Good to have you here and posting.
Kind regards,

It a 42' Center Cockpit Walkover Ketch. Hull #20. She is great in the bay, we have had great fun. Not a lot of sailing time, of course more work time. But I am still good with it. Hope you get yours ready with ease.

Actualy slip fees here in Corpus are pretty good. I pay ~325 for a 45' slip. Live aboard is 75 extra. They charge 5 bucks for a pump out. but you can buy a book of them at less price. If you pay by the year, you get 2 months free, then after 1 month.
Not sure what is is in Houston, but the slips we looked at there were higher.

Didn't go to the corpus boat show. My boat sank from a failed electrolsis thru hull right before, and I was pretty low that week.
Boat is still on the hard.

Hi Bob, sorry to hear about the submersion, hopefully you'll get things bak in shape before to long.

We're in a 50' slip here at Watergate, primarily because we had to leave the Boardwalk marina and this was the last floating dock available when we left. The boardwalk has decided that it wants to be 1) Power Boat friendly, 2) Boat Show friendly, the new lease we were presented with gave the marina the option with 30 days notice to have us vacate our slip for up to 30 days. We didn't care for that option, plus as we were getting readyt to move aboard we wanted a quieter location.

Our monthly is 390, plus 60 for LAB. Prior to IKE there was a free pumpout here in Watergate, as it was destroyed we are awaiting its return, in the menatime there are other free locations here in the Bay to pumpout.

Watergate is an excellant facility for anyone that is looking in the area, they are finishing up a series of new floating docks, mostly 50'+, we'll see how they all turn out.
