Texas Schooner Captain

Greetings all, been reading this forum for over a year and finally decided to join up. I have been a liveaboard for years, started out in the Great Lakes, been in Texas since'03, when I purchased this boat in a nearly derelict state. At long last, it is finally seaworthy and sailing and I am getting ready to resume travelling in between jobs.

Dave

Re: Texas Schooner Captain

I will post some good sailing pictures here shortly, still learning my way around this site as a user and not just a reader. Bobconnie, I would enjoy a long chat with you sometime, I have never had the opportunity to talk with anyone who has sailed a Gazelle other than Tom Colvin. Just spent 2 weeks in Morgan City LA, sailed back to Texas last saturday because I was getting nervous about the proximity of Isaac.
