Cam's point is a very good one, since that boat's captain is well known for destroying grills and launching chickens at unwary nearby boaters... The chickens aren't even cooked most of the time... and with salmonella and avian flu...that's a serious threat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

We spent this winter in Charleston

We spent the winter months in Charleston aboard our Hunter 410 'Restless'. Staying at the Charleston Harbor Marina. It has been great here! Lowest temp observed was 29 for about 4 hours overnight. There are many accomodations in the area with access to stores, supermarkets, book stores etc. The city is a nice place to tour, with many historical points. We have friends who wintered further south in Florida and their chief advantage is much warmer weather....with a little research you will find the right place for you.
Best of luck ....

Make sure you have AC aboard. Summers in TX can be brutal, especially August.

Charleston sucks. Stay away. No sailing at all.

I just checked the military Rv and Camping guide. The nearest military marina is at Fort Sam Houston Recreation Area. I don't know what that is in daily commute but here's their phone number 888-882-9878 or 830-964-3318. The guide says they have 80 slips, electric/water hookups, all the usual stuff on a military res. Check it out. oh yeah it also says you can anchor out.
