howdy from Texas

Not new to sailing, but new to sailing in shallow water! Seattle is home, Houston is current residence. We just bought our first boat here - Cal 25-2. Looking forward to being on the water, but still cleaning up the boat and getting it outfitted to our comforts. Won't be long now though, and we'll be out on Galveston Bay.

Welcome aboard knormb:
I am new here myself, although not new to sailing. I have been lurking and reading the different posts and all I can say is WOW! There are many fine folks here and the knowledge base is enormous! It would appear that whatever you need to know, someone here has the answer. Or at least can point you in the right direction.
So don't be a stranger, jump on in!

Hi Knormb,

Texas here too. That Galveston Bay is fine sailing. Clearlake is such a nice Marina. We are looking at buying a little vacation house on Matagorda Bay. If we do, I want to move my boat. Welcome to you and yours.

Welcome aboard. Yes,shallow water, but still lots of room to sail. Plus, come October, you have the Harvest Moon Regatta. Where are you keeping your boat down there?
