Re: Crew wanted-New Bern, NC to Kemah, TX

We left out of New Bern and made it about 10 miles and the prop started slipping. I got it rigged back and we motored over to Matthews Point Marina. The guys here are stellar. Tons of help from a great group of guys. I recommend stopping by this one. Got a new prop on and ready to go, just waiting out a little foul weather before we get rolling again.

Ravenking. Sorry I didn't post sooner, but we were trying to leave out and beat this weather. Obviously that didn't happen, but if you're close by and still interested, let me know. We're down by Havelock right now, but if the weather clears we're going to make for Beaufort this afternoon. Thanks for the response.

Was referring to January Stingray. As for running the ICW, once you're west of New Orleans, get behind a barge at dusk and follow him through the night. The ICW there is much wider, and rarely needs channel markers. Weather permitting, head out to the Gulf on the Calcesieu River to Galveston. The Ellender lift bridge just west of the Calcesieu requires a 4 hour advance notice (last I knew).

I keep my boat in a marina in new bern and I am also from eastern NC. Depending on the dates I may be able to help for a few days, then hop off and catch a bus/train home. Just let me know the dates.

Interesting I came across this post. Just two weeks ago I sailed my parents Gozzard 44 from Galveston TX to SW florida. It was an amazing sail! the first day the winds were not faverable and only one day with 15 foot seas other than that it was quite a blast! I also just happen to live in NC lol

I'm actually from Conroe but never sailed on the lake, just power boats. It looks like I might be headed over sunday or monday and just get the boat as far as I can before we have to fly back for Christmas. If I pay for a third person to come with my nephew and I we'd have to be able to go open water to make better time. You can call or text me if you'd like to talk about it. Thanks.

Re: Crew wanted-New Bern, NC to Kemah, TX

I'd be interested. I'm 35 M and have been sailing since I was 15. I have limited large boat experience and zero open water time. I once crewed a 35' in the Gulf, but only for day sails. I currently have a 22' Starwind , 16.5 Capri and a dolphin that I use on Conroe and Somerville.

What is your expected time frame for the trip?

Re: Crew wanted-New Bern, NC to Kemah, TX

John, are you talking about right now or in January? If I have to, I will run the ICW the entire way but I didn't really want to take that long.
