I've been dreaming of it for years, and I'm finally starting to actually work
towards getting rid of the house and moving onto a sailboat. After doing a bit of reading, it looks like Texas
is going to be the best bang for my buck as far as slip fees
go (and I have to be at a dock
, weekdays, 9-5 until I can figure out a different income
situation); I'm thinking Kemah
looks like a pretty decent place to spend a year or two.
The only thing I'm really concerned about right now is what the sailing opportunities are for that area. Where do people go when they go sailing, or is it just out into the ocean and back? I really wanted to shoot for the south FL area because of the 'quick' back and forth from the Bahamas
, but I don't know enough about the gulf to know what might be there worth doing.
Next weekend I'm taking a trip down to Kemah
for to treat with the 'natives' and get a feel for the place; my buddy and I are staying on a boat
in Legend Point Marina. Can anyone recommend good marinas
in the area that are worth trying to see while I'm down there? Any to avoid? Anything else in general? I'm all ears.
edit: Also, advice
on other areas besides Texas
that I should look into is welcome.
