Nice synapsis 2bel,
I know the Kemah area VERY well. Grew up around the Clear Lake/Friendswood area.
I look forward to hearing more about the route details (and other details) I think I begged for some on my post (TX to Mex riviera..etc) .
My Columbia 9.6 (31.5') is in freeport right now, but in 9 days I am taking her (Luna-Sea) down to her new home in Port Aransas.
It's only a 32 +/- hour sail... but will be my longest single handed on a boat this size. My last one being a 22'.
Shouldn't be a problem... I am already anxious...getting the feeling like I just want to F-ing go right now. Alas......other responsibilities/commitments still tie me to the land.......(for now)......
If the other crew i have planned for my Progresso trip in Late May 2013 falls through.... would you be interested in going ? 5 days there....7 days docked....5 days back.... I cover food and water.... U cover your own adult drinks...and shore "activities", or other (responsible) party-type of gear.
