Going to make the run july 4th weekend via the intercoastal for the first time. Looks pretty straight forward on maps and I estimate its about a 4 hr run at an average of 30 mph. Anyone that's made the run have any advice or what to watch for (besides the fuel bill)? Going in a Century 2300 CC, top end speed of 45 mph.

thanks

I've made that run coming the other way, from Sabine to Port O'Connor, then from there to Brownsville.
It's easy from here to Lake Charles.

i've made that run a few times (galveston to barataria/grand isle). it's pretty straight forward, but be careful on the sabine river stretch. there are a couple of jogs that can easily be over-looked.

i'm not sure that you can average 30mph. there is a lot of traffic on the intercoastal, and you must crawl through some sections so that you don't throw any wake.

Trip

Made the trip several times from Galveston to Sabine Jetties. It's 2hrs at 45mph and I'm not sure of what sections that are "no wake", I know there are none between Galveston and Sabine. You should be able to make in less than 4 hours. Also be aware of your fuel because the last time I was that way there were no on the the fuel stops on the water in Sabine. Gater

thanks for the replies, have to postpone the trip for a couple of weeks. The channel is now closed south of Mosses Lake due to the oil spill, but I will post the recap of the trip when it happens.

Ditto on the time and distance , everyone has stated. If you need gas in the Sabine area, The pumps at Pleasure island is up and running , and Card activated. You will have to venture into lake to get there . You can get there By Causeway side of lake or North end.. I recently talked to the lady who runs it, for some of the Kemah Tourney guys a couple of weeks back..
