Advice on sailing from Galveston Bay to Matagorda Bay

I have to move my boat (Hunter 30', with the help of a friend, both of us with some experience) from Clear Lake to Palacios at the end of December. I dont have a radar but do have a GPS and chartplotter. We have a limited amount of time we can be gone from home so we are trying to one have one overnight period which is doable. The concerns are with the oil rigs and other "unlit" and "uncharted" items in the track between Galveston Approach and Matagorda Approach.

Any experiences, stories or advice is welcome. Looking for departure times and places to avoid at night kind of stuff, but love reading stories too.
