Sailing the Texas coast is mostly hopping between inlets. Providing you keep an eye on the weather, you'll probably be okay. I would definitely spend some time on Galveston Bay first though before venturing outside.

During the warmer months, the prevailing winds are out of the Southeast in the Gulf. If I did my transit over, I'd go down to the Yucatan, then up to the Keys. As far as the size of the boat being a factor, all I can say is I'd rather have something a bit larger for that crossing.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
