My Reply was specific to the OP. He has been on the board a month, admits being new to sailing. His questions about boats have ranged from Catalina 25s, to light 23 centerboard trailerables, and taking a hunter monohull and creating a trimaran out of it.
Since he is new to sailing, does not have a clue about what he wants for a boat other than something comfortable to sail on the Texas coast. He lives on a coast with a huge selection of boats available and in the water ready to sail away. Why would he want to complicate his life by looking at boats across the country, of which he probably has no clue about, purchasing a trailer, and arranging shipping. There are probably boats to fit his needs on the coast available for less than the cost of a trailer for a 29' boat. If I was new to sailing and could afford a boat outright, I would not be looking for a project, I would be looking for something in the water, ready to sail on tomorrow.
