I found the cheapest and best place to grab a cold beer is sitting on my boat watching the sun go down.
We need to plan a Galveston Bay raft up for Sailnetters. Gotta keep up with our Chesapeake breathren after all. I'll start a new post and see if I can drum up a response.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news Easy, but Maribel's is no more. There is nothing left but a gravel lot where the building once stood. Everything from over there got washed into Seabrook. We had chairs and tables from Maribels in the marina and hundreds of boxes of previously frozen seafood (yuck) from the seafood vendors.
Outriggers is still standing though and it appears they are working towards reopening. T-Bone Toms should be reopened by this weekend also. The pickings are slim right now as for places to go to grab a cold beer. Hopefully by this summer things will be more back to normal.

Michael, Thanks for the offer and assist. As for the beer, mabe "Maribel's" Wednesday night free hamburgers and band.
I will be in the States 27th Dec 08 till 15th Jan 09, but will be in Fl tending to my boat. Plan on sailing down to Key West and back to Ft Mayer's. Then I will put my boat on the hard untill I make my sail to Texas around December 09. If I have time I might just drive down and see the damage first hand.
Again thanks for your offer and feed back on the damage done.

Sorry for the delay on replaying but the time difference over here.
Thank you all for input concerning Watergate it has been a real help.
donhallmon, you said you kept your boat there over six years. So you was there the same time I was. My slip was over by the small pool. Not the one by the office but the other one. I think I would give up flotingdock for a slip at the pool. I had such a great time at the pool with all my friends.
I hope to be sailing with you all soon. Until then God Bless all.

I think you will find Watergate to be a great place to sail from. I have kept a boat there for over six years now and I love it. We lost four docks along with well over seventy slips. All risers) On the plus side, their are several floating docks under construction that will increase the number of available slips dramaticly.
The bad side of this is that none of them are close to either pool. ( there are two)
Bath facilities are still undergoing repairs but should be finished within a month or so. The club houses are being repaired and one is available right now along with laundry facilities. (only two washers available right now.)
You can contact the office at 281-341-1511 and speak to Pauline about slip availability and price. It aint cheap but I wouldn't want to keep my boat anywhere else on the bay.

Seabrook faired much better than Watergate from what I saw. We only had 20% damage. There was only one boat on my pier that sank and two on the pier behind mine. I believe that one pier N, I believe was a total loss, but otherwise we came out a lot better than Bal Harbour (Hilton) and Lakewood.
Ofcourse all the boats on stands in the yard did float off. The Shipyard I believe was a total loss.
