Re: Advice on sailing from Galveston Bay to Matagorda Bay

I think most of the well heads are between Freeport and Matagorda so I would try to do that stretch in daylight. Probably means leaving Galveston at night.

Make sure you're monitoring channel 16. I've come across a tug pulling a drilling rig out there and he was regularly on the radio trying to keep boats from cutting between the tug and the tow.

Hope you have good weather.
