I apologize for the delayed reply. As much as I prefer offshore
routes, I ended up motoring the ICW
. It was not a bad trip. I was able to recruit one of my sons to assist and we were lucky at the locks.
I find 100 miles a day as a good estimate unless conditions are totally adverse. 150 miles from Port A to Galveston with another 30 to Baytown.
I decided to cut the trip short and try a new (to me) marina in Freeport
. It is only a few miles from the gulf and seems a nice place.
