Kemah is THE place in Texas for boat refit supplies, however Yards are a bit pricey here, Rockport is better. I can personally recommend Hooking Bull boatyard. Clean ,friendly and reasonable rates, could probably store your boat there on the hard if needed. I wouldn't go to house of boats yard, it is a bit of a mess and their story changes on whether they can haul your boat depending on who you talk to. As far as hurricanes, either move away from them or find a sheltered place and tie yourself in...it is the normal summer weather here.
