Glad to help... don't like to see anyone become a statistic or lose their boat if it is avoidable.

Your initial plan makes a lot more sense, and you will learn a lot more about your boat and knowing your boat will give you a lot more confidence in her...

The forecasting for hurricanes is pretty good nowadays and if you have decent insurance, they'll usually pay to haul the boat for a big storm. I'd point out that you'll probably want to be somewhere other than Galveston if a hurricane is due, since Galveston has no high ground..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
