Mobile/Pensacola area hurricane holes?

Well, we're in the middle of hurricane season and so far so good. But the worst of the season is still ahead. We currently have our boat at a marina in the Pensacola area. In the past, we've taken her up the Mobile River and up north to a marina near Tupelo, MS. With the price of diesel fuel going through the roof, we were thinking that if a hurricane looks like it might head this way, we would go up river but not quite as far.

We also thought of having the boat hauled, but some boat yards don't want to deal with boats on the hard if a hurricane is coming. Plus, it would be difficult to live aboard.

Does anyone in the Pensacola/Mobile area have a favorite hurricane hole or other plans for the hurricane season?

Thanks for any information.
How can I get lost?? I don't know where I'm going!
