Re: Icw

I've done the SPI to Port O'Conner stretch a few times. Given that I don't know the draft of your boat, the only thing that comes to mind that would be safe in that area for most drafts would be Army Hole. you can tie up to the docks there. It's a relatively nice, quiet area. Or, if the waves and winds aren't horrible, you could drop anchor in Espirtu Santos bay. Offatts Bayou by Galveston can be a nice place to drop hook and stay out of the way of the ferry and barges.

Re: Icw

Definitely would agree on Army Hole on Matagorda Island, truly hidden gems with some amazing historical secrets hiding about (the docking area is pretty deep since the ferry in 2003 used to dock there & there may be a billards table somewhere on the island). But I really cannot wait to go back and check out the old ghost town site of Saluria on the far east side of Matagorda Island, on Noaa maps, it is deep enough but not sure when the depths were taken. Must enter from the Matagorda Ship Channel, south of the GIWW and follow the NOAA map for depths.

Re: Icw

Thanks Guys
I'm from Texas and didn't know about the Ghost Town on Madagorda. Just goes to show you what fellow sailors can teach each other. I learn something new every time i get on sailnet.

Thanks All
