Wounded Warriors and Veterans Story

Windsong supports our troops and wants everyone to think of our people in our services everyday. Recently we were honored to have 2 families aboard our vessel to honor Wounded Warriors and Veterans here in Clear Lake/Galveston Bay.

 

The weather wasn’t cooperative for sailing so we motored around the Bay and Clear Lake. The families huddled under thermal sleeping bags, the kids drove the boat, drank Starbucks and hot chocolate furnished by Captain Bob & Kathy. Our friends Ken Olanyk and Laura Noulles headed up the committee boat “Lady Bug II” and were able to tie off on the Coast Guard Cutter at the boardwalk. We drove past them numerous times and called out a plea for Starbucks coffee. They took the Starbucks order, went shopping and then drove up to Windsong for the successful hand-off!

We have had many people serving our country on board Windsong for many different celebrations. Seth Alford got engaged aboard Windsong during a beautiful Sunset Cruise. The cruise was a success and the marriage took place. Seth is serving overseas and as a newly wed and wanted to carry a photo from our charter with him and also send a copy to Megan. We complied and asked if we could share his request with our friends.

Charity starts at home. During this last quarter, Windsong donated a charter to The IFMA Foundation and a charter to a silent auction for the Salvation Army. The IFMA Foundation gives scholarships and makes donations to charities. The Salvation Army Residence Center will use the proceeds to help children with school supplies, back packs, uniforms and a pair of new shoes.

We are looking forward to our continued support of the Ronald McDonald House children and families during 2011.

 

Captain Bob and Admerial Kathy would like to take a minute to thanks everyone for their business and trusting us to offer the best service possible to celebrate your special occasions.
Have a safe and prosperous New Year. We look forward to seeing you in 2011

Letter to Dockside Boat Repair

Subject: RE: Fiberglass Repair
Bob,
"Since I work downtown Houston, nights or weekends are the only times available. I leave home at 6am and get home at 6pm daily.  However, I am off Friday Dec 10th  and will be using my boat that day. Perhaps we can find some time that day? I will go out to the boat this evening to take a look at the fiberglass repair.I have to admit, you guys did the job very quickly… Dependable folks who keep their word in the boat business seem to be a rare find, so I appreciate the relationships you have established . Dave has high praise for your work ethic and professionalism.
That does mean a lot!" Talk to you soon, Don

Charter Concerns

 

Before you charter any boat you should ask them the following...

  • Does your vessel have Charter Insurance to Protect You? Ask to see their policy.
  • Is the Captain Licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard?
  • Does your Captain have a License that allows more than 6 passengers?
  • Is your Captain in a random drug screening program; which is required by the U.S. Coast Guard
  • How much experience does the Captain have? Captain Bob has over 50,000 blue water miles and has crossed the Atlantic 3 times.
  • Does the boat carry the proper safety equipment & first aid?
  • Sleeping overnight away from dock, does your vessel have a good dingy?
  • Meet the crew and tour the boat prior to spending
  • Look at Windsong before you spend
  • Other boats pictures can be deceiving. Windsong has more room than any other sailboat within 500 miles. (photo below) Windsong on the left...
