March 4 was another great morning on Buffalo Bayou! This is the sixth year that this cruise has been scheduled, and continues to be a popular one.
With a great weather forecast we had 29 vessels head for Galveston yacht basin to party the last weekend of Mardi Gras.Imagine captained by Kenneth Ekenseair (cruise leader) left marker 2 at 10 AM with a total of 10 vessels going down the west pass to Galveston. Some of them this was their first trip to Galveston, and many first time going the west pass. Choosing that route actually worked out well because of a dredging operations in the HSC shut down all traffic. We did have several that went HSC later after it was open, but what a great opportunity to go a different route.. Micky Netherly of MV Sand Castle II commented he really liked the route and would use it in the future also.
