Re: Galveston Bay and South Sailing

My husband and I are also looking for places to sail in and around Galveston Island. We are currently working on getting our San Juan 24 hauled from D/FW to Galveston Bay area, and have had some really good bids from boat haulers.

Though we are hitting a dead-end when it comes to finding crane services to put our boat in the water once it arrives; since the mover will not. We are looking at Teichman Point Marina on Offats Bayou, but they do not have a lift. I have contacted Galveston Yacht Basin, but have-yet to hear back.

So...unless anyone would like to offer some much appreciated pointers to this 'newby-near-novice-sailor', I will keep searching the net for crane services and start studying the charts in Offats Bayou. I noticed one poster in this thread had said that there are many shallow spots there, and we have a fixed keel with a 4' drop; which was one of the reasons we wanted to relocate to deeper waters. : )

Any pointers would be very...very appreciated. Links to buy charts and crane services near Teichman would be wonderful too. Thanks so much in advance. Fair winds and blessings!
