If you're a liveaboard
you'll have to look around a bit for a marina slip (wait lists and availability), but slip rents are pretty reasonable in the area.
Aransas Pass is a small town, near other small towns, not far from Corpus Christi, decent jobs are still tight. Ingleside Navy
base was closed a few years ago, couple thousand jobs went away.
Basic skills like welding, metal working, piping, electrical
, etc., are sometimes available, along with medical
and retail. High-tech, what there is of it, is more likely in CC.
Check local newspapers (online too).
Corpus Christi is doing quite-very well with everything (and is still an oil/chem/military town, with ancillaries).
The Eagle Ford Shale BOOM further inland (to the N, W, E) has things absolutely crazy
, but the oil
biz is a tight-knit group, although the BOOM has spilled over into many other economic sectors.
I'm not exaggerating, I've lived through many (South and East) Texas
booms and busts and have never
seen anything like this before; as a landlord in it, it is simply great/amazing (is that a big cat I hear purring?).
Good luck/buena suerte.
