Boomvang distance & mooring

Can anyone tell me how far Boomvang is out of Galveston and Freeport? Also, If there are mooring buoys is it okay to use them? Thanks, Bigfish

Roughly 109 out of freeport. I've tied up to the buoys before but I don't know if that's changed, I heard they removed the one at nansen?

There is no buoy at Boomvang. There is one about 45 miles inshore that appears to be new but I dont have the GPS number with me.

I'm trying to decide if it is worth it to pull the boat to Freeport from Kemah. I have a 26' Glacier Bay twin 140 Suzukis. I average 1.7 mpg and have 240 galllon capacity. Is there a place to hook onto the rig, I saw a post where everyone slept and drifted but I don't think I want to do that. How far is it from Boomvang to Nansen? Thanks for the info, Bigfish

Floaters

Like I said there is a buoy inshore from BV about 40 miles you could motor to. Or you could share the buoy and rope at Nancen if there is no supply boat on it. No place to hook onto the rig unless you have a rig hook that can wrap around 20' diameter pilings.

We just drift at night if we all get tired. You leave your lights, radar and vhf on. Unless there is an extremly strong current you wont drift more then a 5-10 miles in a 5 hour sleep. Normally we drift 3-5 miles while drifting for 5 hours. Check radar and see if anything is coming up before you sleep. Keep your VHf on as loud as it gets to wake you up if theres and emergency move.
