sailingdog,
Thank you very much for your detailed reply. You've given me much to think about.
My initial plan was to spend a year in the Galveston area in a slip - making a series of graduated trips culminating in a return sail to Key West.
But the hurricanes have me worried.
I thought that getting out of the Gulf and into the leewards as quickly as possible might be a better plan.
I realize I have much to learn, and the last thing I want to do is head out to sea without a plan and without the necessary skills.
I'm leaning back toward my initial plan. I have to take some time to learn the ropes. Maybe sitting out any hurricane in Galveston Bay area would be more desirable than rushing things at sea.
So now - i guess I'll have to pay the Texas Taxes so that I can stay there for longer than 30 days!
Thanks again for your reply!
Tanny
