I used to live in Timber Cove.... we had a 27' excalibur and never had trouble getting in and out.... that part of taylor lake floods..... our house was a flood house... they are great as long as you can get insurance on them... get a new bottom floor every 3-5 years..... you should definately check if the house you are looking at floods..... also if it has a hering bone tile floor which the tile looks like wood... it is my grandma's old house... I think it is back up for sale... I did the floors in it.

The guy with the scarab in lake cove is Richard Goff, he owns AIG construction wich builds most of the boat houses in the area. Just stop buy and talk to him he will tell you if what you want to do is a good idea, because of his buisness he pretty much knows the channels like the back of his hand. The bridge can get real close in the summer when the tides are high and the water can be too low in the winter with the tides out and a north wind. I have a 30 foot boat with a radar arch and have never had to turn around and not go under the bridge but I would guess with a 40 something foot boat with an arch you might be in trouble.

If I were movine to clear lake/ Houston area.... I would try to stay on clear lake... or maybe back up clear creek in freindswood.... stay where you have bay access without low bridges.... the south side of clear lake... mostly the southshore harbor area... or in your price there might be something..... well there is a little island there... that isn't really an island... drive all around through the backroads off of 2094..... there is new stuff being build close to egret bay and 2094

It is a 38'.

I have heard that, but only after a front pushes all the water out of the lake. So the summer is okay.

Exactly! Plus this kills the idea of taking the go fast down to the sport fish :-D

Well, if there is a realtor around that can find some thing, I will give you our specs, we have been searching around har etc. we haven't signed a buyers agreement yet.

1. 3-4k sqft.
2. Channel or clear lake access nothing on the bay directly.
3. 400-500k range, any more and I am taking budget from the boat LOL
4. Built within the last 5 years, idealy we would find something that either is ready for sheet rock within the next week or so, or even sheet rock hung.
5. 3 bedrooms minimum with a hobby room or a 4th bedroom minimum.
6. Must be able to own my own boat lift and boat dock.
7. Must have some yard, enough that a couple of large dogs can run around.
8. Two car garage or better.
9. Must be free standing, no town homes.


Thats all guys, thanks for your help.
